I have the trektop for my 2dr. I sometimes wonder if I'd be happier with the factory softtop, but after using it for a year, it's grown on me.
Installation is pretty simple. Like everyone suggests, just lay it out on lawn in the sun while you get the hardware figured out so it "softens" a bit. It is a really simple top. That's why I got it. The rear window is pretty easy to take off. The tailgate bar just fits in a channel on the rear window.
Removal is super easy. Two header knobs, some velcro, and you can just fold in the windows and roll it up. To put it back on, just unroll it back over the Jeep. You do have to be patient and take your time when installing the header knobs so they thread true. And for a good leak free fit, use your off hand to "punch" the header bar while tightening to help stretch the top and keep it leak free. If you try to just muscle the knobs, they can and will strip
, but thanks to good customer support, replacement parts are a phone call away from Bestop.
Like any top, it's easier with two people to install and remove, but it's doable by yourself. I'm guessing the JKU would be just a little more cumbersome.
