Trektop NX where's it at? I need one!!

Does anyone know when the Trektop NX will hit stores? I was going to go ahead and get a Trektop, but heard abou the new and improved coming out soon....so I decided to wait. I'm dying to get the hard top off, and a soft top on!

I ordered one from 4wd.com and I called and talked to Bestop. They claimed they planned to have them out by May.

There is a place that is close to where I live that has is for $495.99 with the discount coupon code. With KY sales tax it's $510 and some change. I think I am going to go ahead and order it tomorrow before 10pm (when the discount expires). I'm ready to get my hard top off, and maybe sell it!! IDK yet!!

I have the Bestop Trektop NX ordered and as I understand it will be delayed. The last word was June, but I'm hoping it can be sooner. I don't think anyone has the new one yet except someone at Bestop. Mine was 4 door $591 plus tax and free shipping. I don't think you will find it cheaper. (Jeep Top Depot)

truckaddons.com is where I found it for the price I previously posted. When the special offer ends, it is around $535. The best I have found on the web.

If it takes as long as its taking to get my bushwackers from truckadd ons You might as well order an ORH top.

they also claimed that my Bestop highrock "wench"(as their service manager called it 5 times in email) bumper was performing as it should, it would BEND while I used my winch on it.

I would bet it will not even be out by June and I wont buy shit from them

I have had issues with Truckaddons not delivering on time. I won't ever use them again.
I know I'm going to have to wait for Bestop but just keep hoping for the best.

Maybe they have Tim at ORH making the new "NX" top??? Bestop's new slogan: "we may be slow but not as slow as Tim"

The ORH top was very worth the 3 month wait for mine, Tim seems to be slow, disorganized and high on something, but he knows how to make a damn good soft top!

Thanks for the order and glad JeepAddOns could get you a good price.

Wasn't so much of a truckaddons issue as an incomplete order to us and a screwy freight company issue, but regardless we did the best we could to get it to you as soon as we could and had it shipped out our doors within two hours of receipt of them. Funny stuff on the ORH though (or not funny if you got caught up in that mess he created)!

I have no idea what your issue was, but I just checked and looks like an A+ BBB rating. I'm sure there were some issues that people have had along the line, but I can say that since I came on board in October of last year with the Jeep project, I'd challenge you to find many people around the Jeep community that has much of anything bad to say and I'm sure most will agree I have gone over and beyond trying to help fellow Jeep guys out. Anyway, I have spoken to Geoff as well this week after we placed our order on these and he gave me the same dates.

I'll say that if anyone is wanting these on the first shipment, regardless of what company they choose to buy from, they need to jump on it early. They have only so many that will be available during the first production run that they're receiving in May. Early orders will be fulfilled first and if you wait until they're actually released, then you'll likely have to wait until their second run because many of these are already spoken for.

Chris if you are running the Jeep portion of the business then maybe you deserve a shot at my business. My issues were over two years ago so it wasn't your side of the shop I took issue. Sounds like you understand the Jeep community and know we are loyal to those that serve and are willing to be fair. That is all I ask. Will give you a chance I'm sure. I like mods...

Are these shipping yet Chris? Is the date still on for this month or did it get pushed back?

I just watched the video and I'm not sure what top you guys are looking at and liking so much. The top that I saw in BestTop's very own video looked like crap. The fit is horrible. I just wished there was a way to get the ORH top without all the hassles.

I too decided to wait for the new one. I want one bad. I wouldn't sell my hard top or anything. I also want to wait until people on here post a few reviews. So when you guys get them post pics/reviews.

Bestop had it on display in Moab and I spent a lot of time looking and messing with it. It is a very cool top.

The new NX version replaces the metal rods with the plastic mounts that are similiar to the OEM soft-top. The quarter windows also have a plastic insert to help the slantback portion keep it's shape better. The side panels and rear window are pretty easy to remove. Another cool feature is that the front of the top, where it meets the windshield frame, has gone back to the latch system and they did away with the screw in knobs. The top also has the option to be folded back, sunrider style, rather then rolled back on the current version.

At the Moab Expo they told me it should be available and shipping out in June.

Will there be any issue of the top fitting with an sPod?

No. The top latches attach at the same spot as OEM which is further out behind the visors.

That is the TrekTop not the TrekTop NX. They dont have a video for the NX version yet which is supposed to be a very good upgrade. For the OP if you pre ordered early enough they expect 4 door ones to ship on May 20th but the 2dr is still TBD.
