Besttop or OEM soft top?

I am considering buying the the dual top package when I pick up my jeep and wanted some opinions. I love the look of the Besttop Trektop nx much better but the OEM seems to be cheaper if order with the vehicle is bought $400 dollar option. Trektop $655.
Wanted the opinions of guys here who have one or have experience with both.
Which is easier top install and uninstall?
Which is better?
Pros and Cons?

Personally, I prefer the factory top. I think it looks better and offers more cargo room in the back. They also fit very nicely and the new premium top fabric that comes with the dual top is excellent, an improvement over the older material like the Trektop uses.

I went with the Bestop Supertop NX over the Trektop NX because its easier to take the whole top off to go topless and easier to put back on in case of rain. The Supertop is easier to store in the Jeep which was a big selling point for me. Both have the sun rider feature so that was a wash.

I liked the look of the Trektop but that wasn't enough of a reason to buy it.

During prolonged periods with the top down I just throw my Spiderwebshade on to provide relief from the sun.

Not just the OEM top but the premium top......big difference!

Too much of a price difference for me between the two (about $450.00) for a top that won't be up/on that often.

I like the look of the Trektop NX but it isn't as functional. The OEM soft top you can fold down and put back up quickly vs the Trektop that needs to be completely removed.
