i am still looking forward to getting the top that i bought. my credit card has not yet been charged for mine. it sounds like it has some great new features that the normal supertop does not, & for $50 extra bucks i think it was, is well worth it to me.

i totaly agree.. i was beyond iritated when i found out that it wasnt shiping.. i didnt order from quadratec because thier shipping was more, but at least theirs clearly said available mid june (me being dumb just assumed at first that they were uber back ordered)

i had other things i would have invested my money in until they were released had i known for sure.

and geting the newest one, i think was def worth the extra money and the wait.. just again.. wish i had known

i just hope they come in here shortly.. cant wait to get my baby all fixed up

I agree but I have had complaints with the way 4WD runs their site for a while now. Nothing is listed as to when its in stock either. I've resorted to calling them instead now so I get up to date info. Hopefully their new site is run better.

Geoff,

Can we please get an official update, even if it's "No change"? I've been running (Or more accurately, Not running, and leaving undercover) my jeep for the last month without a roof... And today a Quadratec rep says;

Dave S: the top will not be in stock until Late July
Dave S: as of 6/2/11 from the manufacture

John Zucco: damn, OK, is the Supertop NX delayed further as well then?
Dave S: they both are yes
John Zucco: And what is stock like on the old Trektop?
Dave S: they are in stock
John Zucco: OK, will discuss with wife, and perhaps change order... Thanks alot for the info Dave!
So, Any "Official" info for us?

Justin, what are you waiting for? A Supertop NX or a Trektop NX? I have had my Supertop NX installed for awhile now. Didn't you order yours well before me? I have had a lot to say about the Supertop NX mostly a lot of foul curse words every time I put it up, take it down, put the windows in, and play with the broken knuckle on it, I usually throw Geoff's name in their just to make myself feel better (sorry Geoff)

Im waiting for the Trektop NX for my LJ. And yes I pre-ordered it long befofre the release date (was told I was #2 in line at 4WD/4wheelparts) but unfortunatley the entire 1st order was sent to their Ohio warehouse and I guess mine has to be shipped out of the Florida warehouse so I was skipped over. Positive side is I am now #1 in line for the top but then again I was told its going to be several weeks until they even receive their order to ship out to me!

If you do decide to go the trektop route let me if you Need a 4 door one. I bought it last fall and ran it 3 weeks before putting the stock top on for winter. I'm leaning towards just leaving everything off for the summer and just using the trail cover as needed since I now have the garage for those really wet days.

I spoke with 4wd at lunch time yesterday who got intouch with bestop.. I was told they should have them and be shiping them out by the 21st of june... after speaking with her I'm not as adgitated with 4wd but more just towards bestop.. you don't put a product up forsale before it ready... its one thing to allow people to preorder but not order oh and we willl be changing the design or what ever and 3 or 4 months later they still arnt ready that should hav happend b4 they got put out for sale... and I told 4wd they should hav put up an "available in..." on them, she says they hav been asking IT and they havnt done it, and I work in a company and kno how long it takes the IT people to give u those extra lil things you want, so as long as they are helpful when I call no hard feelins towards 4wd... not to be rude but bestop needs to get it together

I have noticed Geoff no longer updates this thread since its always bad news. Just got off the phone with 4WD and they arent expecting the 4DR TrekTop NX in until the beginning of July now. WTF are you guys doing at BestTop? Other than trying to piss customers off as much as possible.

I just chatted with Quad. They are "supposed" to be getting a very large shipment in by the end of the week. I was going to purchase one, but am now having second thoughts because of the backorder. How long have you guys been waiting? I'd like to have it before fall time.

I was referring to the Trektop NX. I did not mention that I owned a TJ. So he'd have to assume that I could of owned a LJ, JK, or YJ. He said by the end of the week it should be fine, but by reading this thread, a lot of people have gotten the "Should be here next week" line.

So his assumptions would have been worthless since the JK TrekTop NX 2dr is pushed until the end of next month I believe and the 4dr is until the beginning of next month. The TJ tops have been shipping but there have been delays in production as well.

When I talked to Quadratec last week, they told me the JKU Trektop NX's aren't expected until the last week of July and every one of them (100) is already spoken for.

I spoke with 4WD this morning and according to them my top should ship by mid July. They are expecting them to show up from Bestop within the first week of July. I should be one of the first to get one from 4WD.

It was mentioned in another thread that Quadratec had 100+ TJ Supertop NX, Black Diamond's (54720-35) yesterday. I checked at about 6:00pm MTN today and they had 60. I sent a note to 4WD to cancel and ordered from Quadratec. It is $30 more for shipping but at least they have some. Late last week, 4WD slipped another two weeks to next week.

FYI... Bestop posted the install manual for the JK Unlimited Trektop NX. Nothing yet on the 2-door model.

http://www.bestop.com/images/install...ides/56823.pdf

That's a hopeful sign of progress.

I ordered an Trektop NX on May 10th for my 05 LJ from Quad, I was 21st in line and was told it would be 2 weeks until they came in. Waited 4 weeks and called Quad for status, the guy called Bestop and said they should get them from Bestop for my model by end of June, I'm not 17th in line. Sure hope they send enough for me to get one, my soft top windows are held in by duct tape. Hopefully Bestop is taking longer to get the next set out b/c they are looking at some of the small issues mentioned here, like the rear bow working its way out.

i know everyone is pissed, but please don't beat up Geoff too bad. He gives us amazing insider scoop that we don't get from other manufacturers. Sure we are not hearing what we want with the tops we're all drooling over. But look at the bright side, they've listened to us and are trying to deliver us the perfect top. Which they seem to have accomplished since we're all so antsy to get one.

These delays are pretty normal when ramping up manufacturing on new product. We just don't normally know it is happening. The upside is we all know what's coming next and don't find ourselves buying something only to have newer/better come out shortly after. We can all be patient and spend our money on exactly what we want.

If I was Geoff, this would be the last product I ever shared pre-release info on given everyone's reactions when we didn't get our way.

let's cut him some slack, he's just trying to put biscuits on the table like the rest of us.

The problem isn't preleasing the info, that is awesome and I thank Geoff for keeping me up to date so I don't have to call 4WD once a week. THe issue is that, as you said, "These delays are pretty normal when ramping up manufacturing on new product." If thats the case then they shouldn't have allowed pre orders to start 3 months ago. If they expect delays then pre orders just shouldn't have begun, thats why people are upset. Pre orders should start when the product is finalized and production is ramping up. Obviously they ran into some issues with the product. I'm still holding out for mine because it is exactly what I am looking for in a top, I just hope that with all this wait ALL the kinks are worked out.

Geoff isn't to blame for any of this though, I would just say its bad business practice on Bestop's half to allow pre orders to start so early. Although I am beginning to see it a common thing in the Jeep world.

i agree, they pulled the trigger on pre-orders too early. i bought a horrible used top to tide me over. Will be buying a NX late fall or so just in case there are more kinks to work out.
