the only issue I have with this top is that the sun rider does not seal tightly with the front window seal. It sits back approximately 1/2" when buckled down. This issue causes excess wind noise and causes the sun rider to balloon up considerably when driving down the HI way. The wind noise is very loud and on a trip to Colorado my wife and I decided at that time it was time to sell the soft top and look for an alternative soft top or simple go back to our hard top
I bought my Trek top used but in excellent shape. When I installed the top I watched a YouTube video rather than using the instructions. The issue I have with the top is that the sun rider does not seal up on the front windshield gaskets. It comes up about 1/2 short and creates extremely loud wind noise, especially on road trips on the freeways. The other thing that I do not like, is that the sun rider balloons up while driving and causes the side rails to leak around the windows as well, even with the wire tensioners as tight as the go. I am selling the top the fall and hope that Trek top NX can come up with a better fitting top on future models that the sun rider fits tight to the front window seal.
I'm so glad I didn't pay for this top with my own money. I got it as a gift and I installed it because I felt slightly guilty receiving this expensive thing as a gift and never using it and I thought a soft top would be easier to take off and put back on. Oh how wrong I was. The rear sides and back window are easy enough to take off, but putting them back on definitely does not get easier over time like Bestop says. The bikini top doesn't really come off at all. On a hard top the back window opens easily to give easy access to the trunk. Forget about it with this top. Ever since I installed it there was never quite a perfect seal in the back so when it rained my carpets got wet, which are now out of the car sitting in my driveway drying off. This all culminates tonight when, since it will be raining all next week, I wanted to put the sides and back back on. After 20 minutes of brute strength and force to get everything back in its place, as I was zipping up the final zipper, the plastic part of the zipper that you pull snapped and broke into 3 pieces. There is not a 6 inch long hole in the zipper that I can't close to prepare for the rain, so now my aftermarket soft top that cost over 700 dollars is now very literally being held together by duct tape. It is sunny and 80 degrees right now and was the same when I tried to put the top together. I wasn't using vice grips or anything to pull the zipper down, just my hands. I will be uninstalling this top and going back to the stock hard top, which actually turns out to be more practical, easier to remove and replace, and pretty much better in every way. Do not buy this top if you don't want to be disappointed.
I bought this to replace my hard top in the summer. I used a best top utube instructions and could not be happier. The shipping could of been better. The top had to be put on backorder. It would of been nice to know that before I made my purchase.
The Bestop Trektop NX in Black Diamond is a great top. It comes with everything needed to install it and has a unique design. I really like the functionality of this top. You have a sunrider feature, as well as a safari bikini for those hot sunny days when shade is needed. The tinted windows give it a nice look and keep interior temps down as well.It is the perfect choice for hardtop models for a summer top.
This is accompanying a factory supplied hard top. It is nice because it comes with all the parts needed (no extra purchases of rails or clips). I watched the on-line videos for installation and installed the top by myself in about 2 hours.
Great replacement to the hard top for the summertime in that is easy to install & uninstall. The only Con to it is it is a little more work than I expected to make it a complete convertible. Other than that, this withstood heavy rain.
This is a great summer soft top option. It allows for a quick conversion to a variety of top configurations and looks great. As long as you follow the video installation instructions, installation is easy. No leaks so far!
This top is excellent. I didn't give it 4 stars because it hasn't rained yet so I don't know if it is watertight. However, it did pass the garden hose test. Looks good and easy to install.
Great Look, When installing use the directions and Bestop Youtube video. Helpful Hint: I installed in early spring 62 degrees, heated garage to 85 and all parts stretched fine, no force. All part were included and packaged very well. I would recommend this top for spring through fall northern climate use.
Will this top work with a 2015 Unlimited Sahara 4-door?
