"Bestops new "bowless" fastback top. The Trektop NX features removable windows, factory style-door surrounds, Sunrider sunroof features, and factory-style header bar. The Trektop NX features our Top Arch support. Designed specifically to minimize fabric flapping, especially at higher speeds, and avoid puddles forming in the center of your soft top after a hard rain storm. The Top Arch spans across the Jeep right above the head of both driver and passenger. The Trektop NX takes away the top bows and frames, and uses the Wrangler sport bars to give it shape and support. This gives the top a fastback or "raceback" look that's stylish, and different than factory soft tops or Supertops. With side and rear windows removed, the Trektop NX functions as a Safari Bikini Top. Includes everything necessary for installation - fabric, tinted side and rear windows, factory-style door surrounds, tailgate bar. Our best multi-layer premium fabric maintains its shape in all temperatures, is mildew-resistant, contains UV inhibitors. Tailgate bar allows you to open tailgate without opening the rear window for trouble free access. Top Arch bar spans above the seating area to keep top tight, reduce flapping, and minimize puddling. Bestops exclusive new polymer Door Surrounds, similar to the OE style door surrounds found on TJs and JKs. Choose the optional door style you want - use your existing full steel doors, or use any Bestop door kit (sold separately) including 2-Piece Doors, Upper Fabric Doors, Element Doors or Lower Fabric Half doors."
I was looking for an inexpensive alternative to my hard top for summer. After getting caught in the rain once with my hard top at home, I decided to buy a soft top. Needing all hardware to replace a hard top, I decided the trektop nx was for me. I have had it on for about two months and I am extremely happy. Very versatile with several options for summer cruising. Watch the youtube video for an easy installation the first time.
Ordered this top, because my Jeep came with only a hardtop. The instructions that came with this top really sucked. Thank God we found a video, which was easy to understand and follow. So much quieter than the soft top I had on my old Jeep. It fits snug and has very little noise.
It was easier to install than originally thought. However there are no words in the instruction so you have move forward and come back to better identify pictures. Finally my biggest issue is the sides do not easily wrap around the door surround for a good fit. Much of the time it is flapping.
The sealing/edge of the rear window panel ripped off when removing the panel on its second week after purchase. Otherwise, so far so good, but I am now crossing my fingers no more materials break or rip upon removal, which is kinda the point of the product (to be able to take on and off during good/bad weather).
Watch the how to video on you tube made buy best top. They made it easy enough I installed it myself and I and a 46 yr old woman. I LOVE THE TOP! NOT ANY MORE ROAD NOISE THAN WITH MY HARD TOP.
Initial installation is difficult to stretch but once installed it is easy to remove and replace parts. it has many configurations and it latches right into place using the stock latches--it also looks good installed.
I have a hardtop but during the summer missed my old softtop. This was less expensive then a replacement top when you add in the support bars and surrounds, etc. Installation was ok, but the directions are pretty hard to understand. The pictographs don't show where or what orientation the vehicle is, so you're left guessing if it's left or right, front or rear facing. But a little time and it goes on pretty well. Attaching the windows is very hard on mine. They have to be put on in a particular order so you can get the zippers started, and on mine, by the time you get to the passenger side window there is so little slack left the window ends up being pulled and almost impossible to get attached. Once on it seems ok but just very hard to get on. With my old softtop I had it down to getting the windows on in about 5 minutes, takes probably 10 now. Getting the windows off is considerably easier! Had read in a forum that one person was able to use a side panel bag and basically attach it up above the sport rails to keep them safe and out of the way. Haven't tried that yet but intend to. Only problem with them off is there is a flap that at highway speeds is LOUD! The rear window attaches to the top via a plastic channel, then (on the top) a flap extends over with a couple of velcro patches that cover the channel and the zippers. With the window out, that flap just (pardon the pun) flaps in the breeze. Not noticeable at low speeds, but on the highway it gets pretty bad. I was able to kind of stick the edge of the flap into the plastic channel and that seemed to take care of it, but a little more velcro to the bottom of the flap could have solved the whole problem. Considering it was much less than a full softtop, and I like the bikini style with the windows off, I do recommend the top. Just be warned it's a little tough to get installed the first time and the windows are a bit of a pain to put on. Otherwise I'm glad I purchased it!
I bought this top to give my 2012 Wrangler a different look from the typical soft top. It was really pretty easy to install. I'm really happy with it. It takes a few days for it to stretch into shape. So give it time to settle in. The back window was a tight fit at first, but now it's no problem.
During the summer I like to cruise around with my top on or off, depending on the elements. Does this top store in the Jeep, like standard frame tops do when you put them down, or do you have to take it off and put it in a garage? Thanks! Keep on Jeepin! Ross Indianapolis

Hi Ross, This Bestop Trektop NX folds up nicely since it does not have any bow assembly bars so it can be stored in the rear of the Jeep with no problems, thanks for your interest in it.

2007 2dr JK. Can you run the top with only the rear window out? If so, does it roll up and secure?
Asked by Freshdougy from Florida on
Hi Freshdougy You can zip the rear window out and drive with it out on the Trektop NX with Tinted Windows and without Doors but there are no straps to roll it up. Thanks
Answered by LWiff ext 4804 from Florida on
Is there any way to order replacement pieces seperately i.e. just the rear window. My plastic is seperating from the zipper.
