Bestop Trektop NX Backorder

Placed an order for a Trektop NX at Quadratec and its on backorder. I called a few other places and one place told me they found out today that the earliest any vendor will be able to get them out would be August.

Wondering if this is true, the daily temp is now over 90 degrees daily where I live and I want this top .

In the same boat. Ordered mine 4/27 and it won't be here till May 24th at the EARLIEST! I should have ordered in January when it was still cold outside. This top has become VERY popular.

I ordered mine on 4/25 and they said it should be here in 4 to 6 weeks 2 days ago. I wonder if that was bumped to longer because of the large demand, hope its sooner than later.

I have a customer with an NX back order and was just told early June. I know it sucks but ordering popular summer products this time of year is always a problem every year. At least 3 or 4 vendors I work with are 10 weeks out on things you would expect to ship in a day or so right now.

I ordered mine in Feb and had it in a few days. I had to wait a 6 weeks to put it on but I have one. The early bird gets the worm.

I did get mine and tried to install it only to find out that the back zipper was not even stitched. That sucks, customer service said the replacement will not be available for 6 to 8 weeks!
It's shame, cause the design is nice but the quality control is not there.

I thought about doing that too but where I'm at its too hot to go topless and I really need a top that can 2nd as a safari top, though I am still tempted.

Great, so I got mine over 20 days later which means it will probably be about a half month behind yours. I will be happy at this point if it shows up by the end of May. So much for having my graduation present to myself by the day I graduate .

Well, hopefully it won't be like last year. I bought mine the 27th of March and got it in Sept with Bestop telling the vendors a different date every time they called them. But that was new top issues, they shouldn't have that problem this year but they still need to get their act together.

Cancel and buy from Summit Racing. Their list price is ridiculous but they will price match if you call them. And they were in stock recently. Mine came in 3 days.

If you want one anytime soon, you're going to have to find someone that has them in stock. We ran out in late March or early April I think. Word was originally shipping more in May, then June and latest rumor is December.

Do not order online from anyone. Call them and VERIFY it is in stock and sitting in THEIR warehouse, not some wholesale supplier that they get stuff from. If your sales person cannot go out and visually put their eyes on it, walk away and order from somewhere else until you want to wait. Just trying to save you guys and gals the trouble.

Thats what I figured, I think I'm just going to sit on my order & hope it isn't delayed more than what I was originally told.

You're welcome WM.

Thrasher, that's probably your best move. Cancelling an order anywhere is just going to delay it more unfortunately. I've got more on stocking orders than I have on backorder right now, but I don't feel comfortable giving a date on when we'll see them. Latest word though is June and July, but those were for stock orders placed in March. August sounds about right for stuff going in now.

Chris, it would be great if your folks would advise customers of the backorder when the order is placed... I ordered on 4/29 from you and wasn't advised of the backorder status even tho' I inquired about the estimated ship date... Hubby was psyched when he got the email that our order shipped, and totally bummed when it arrived today and was the top I ordered for the TJ....

Got an email from Quadratech today that had the subject "Quadratec has your new soft top!" only to find the email was an advertisement to get people to purchase a top. Why must Quadratech toy with my emotions.

I contacted Quadratech last week and they think they should have it within 4 weeks, back to the waiting game. Still have hopes of sooner than later, Bestop needs to step up production pronto.

Smile AutoAccessoriesGarage.com in stock

After calling about 20 places for a trektop NX for my 2012 wrangler unlimited, autoaccesoriesgarage.com said they had them in stock! I asked the guy a couple times to make sure it was the right one and he assured me they were definitely in stock. I ordered one so hopefully it will be arriving shortly!

I ordered one from Amazon (Autoshepard was the actually seller) last Tuesday and it arrived yesterday. I installed it today and it all went on easily. Looks great.

I just checked Amazon and they appear to be out now. There was only 6 left when I ordered mine last week. I prefer to order from Quadratec but did not want to wait for the back-order.

spoke with jeepaddons customer service today and asked about the status of my order (placed 4/5) and they put me on hold and called bestop. Bestop told them they should have the early orders shipped by June 18 the latest. So a little good news there and hopefully this happens.

I'm curious where you guys are ordering from. I have an order in with QTec and some other place (I forget the name). Neither have told me that the top is out of stock (which I generally consider poor customer service). I just spoke to a rep from autoaccessoriesgarage.com who said they drop ship "like everybody else, so I imagine we are out of stock too."

Is anybody aware for sure of a retailer that doesn't drop ship and actually has stock? As of right now I'm considering holding both orders and cancelling whichever one notifies me of shipping latest.

This sucks.
