All Bestop softops on backorder EVERYWHERE?

I just picked up my 2012 JKR 2 door on Monday. It came with a hard top...

My plan was to order a soft top same day (Bestop Supertop NX), so we would have it for a weekend run.

The only vendor that claimed to have them was Quadratec, and of course you only find out they are back ordered until 2 days after you order it. LOVE THAT!

So does anyone know what the dealio is??? Anyone have a secret stash of these?

Thanks

Scott

Have you tried Northridge4x4? Or maybe CL or the for sale sections for an OEM one.

Yes, I called Northridge first...trying to move my Quadratec business to them. Of course they were upfront with me on the phone and told me they were on back order.

Have not checked CL...hoping to find a new one....

Thanks

Summit Racing always seems to have them when everyone else doesn't.

Their prices are not very good but they will price match anything you can find on the web. Just call them.

I was in the same boat at the beginning of the summer when I started searching for a Bestop Trektop NX. I looked all over and eventually put in an order with 4 Wheel Parts because they said they could get me one around the first week of July. First week of July came and went and no top.

Called 4 Wheel Parts and they called Bestop who told them it would now be mid-September. . Not 4 Wheel Part's fault, they can only go on what Bestop tells them. So I cancelled my order with 4 Wheel Parts and called around again, but no luck.

Ended up buying a like new OEM soft top off Craig's List for $425. I'm a happy camper now.
