I dont know much about this top other than it looks awesome on the 4drs. If I were driving a four door Id look into it.

I also drive a 99. I personally like the functionality of the viking/rugged ridge fast back top for the TJs over what I heard about with the Trektops. This is because unlike the trektop, you have the ability to unzip all of the windows and keep the upper part as a safari top which is very convenient. I love my fast back top

I don't think that would bother me much because pretty much the only time I have the top on it is in the cold or rain or when my daughter is with me. Also when my daughter is in there I wanna have the side windows on anyways due to the wind. I just don't have a top for it at all and I need to get one without breakin the bank

I believe the rugged ridge top is pretty cheap comparitively. I like having the safari top that the rugged ridge offers because when the sun beats down where I live it is very hot, but I like having the doors off so it works well together. The windows are also very easy to put on and take off.

Yeah. See the thing is I have no framing at all so I'm looking at an extra $200 just for the framing

do a search. theres tons of info on the trek top. i was deciding on the same top and after much reading and thinking decided against it. biggest reason is all the complaints on getting the top fastend at the header/windshield. and access to the rear cargo area. this is for my wifes rubi and for the money she cant be struggling to get the top up at work or elsewere if she needed to.

As promised my review....love the top!! It's far from frameless! Had to attach door surrounds to sports bar and minor header bolt ons to font of soft top. As far as top goes awesome fit, and looks amazing!!! Top rolls back behind front seats and also a second stage behind rear passenger seats. Can't report on seal and wind noise yet tops staying rolled back for time being, all in all great buy!!! Very pleased!!
