I ordered mine for $605 including shipping, so yes 595 is good.

So this top doesn't have a flap that can fold back over the rear seats to allow for quick topless driving for the passengers like the stock top does? I'm confused on that part. I would probably never want to take off the top beyond just the section for the front seats like with the hard top panels.

It's just like the freedom top. The front will flip back to create the "sun rider" feature. It only exposes the driver and front passenger.

Bought mine in nov for 450 shipped to my door but i have a 2 dr jeep. I love the top it only took me an hour to install by myself while have a few beers. Best part is when you wanna go topless it is off in minutes and back on in mins! I have had zero leaks and my only complaint it getting the tailgate bar off is a pain in the butt sometimes. Ussually only when i am in a hurry though.

I will have to look for the receipt because my memory fails me at the moment. It was a great deal and instock. I received it 3 days after ordering. So i drove 5 days without a top in michigan during thanksgiving! Not very warm but worth it.

Anyone have pics of Trektop NX on a red 2 dr, preferably the Deep Cherry Red. Thinking of getting one myself.

Just finished putting mine on yesterday. It's only been in the 50's, but I got the safari top on and drove with it like that for a few days, then put the windows on - used the Jeep heater to warm things up and it worked. It looks great and fits like a glove, but as soon as we get through this next week of rain and snow the windows are coming back off.
I got mine from Chris at Jeepaddons and he did right by me.

Question for you guys with the TrekTop installed:

Mine is on and I love it...but, I gotta say, I hate that bar that goes across the top right in the middle of the sunrider area. It was really nice out yesterday, so I was driving the Jeep with the sunrider open. That bar seriously annoys me. Is it really necessary? It seems to me that it is not. What do you guys think....

I think that bar is only in the driver area on the 2 door. On the 4 door it's in the rear seat area. I also think it's there to prevent pooling from the things I have read about it.

That bar is for water pooling. There are two on the 4 door, Front and back seats

Mine arrived today. I arrived home about 6:30 and it was still about 70 degrees out so I figured it was worth a shot. I was able to get the safari top installed but no way the windows were going in as it cooled off quickly. Tomorrow it is suppose to get into the low 80's, safari top works good for me!

So the 4 door has a bar covering the front seat areas too? If so then this top might be nixed for me as I don't want to look up and stare at a bar when I flip the sunrider part back. My search for a top continues. That's too bad too since I love every other aspect of this top but the big bar over my head is a deal breaker.

^^ I'm seriously considering removing the front bar, j0nx ^^ I agree with you.

I checked it again last night. The top doesn't even touch the bar when it is closed tight. I can fit my entire finger on top of the bar between the material. So, I'm not sure what it's purpose is?! I guess if it rained buckets, the top might sag a little maybe.

As many pics as I have seen of the TrekTop, I still can't decide if I like the look or not. Would love to see a JKU one in person. I love the functionality of it, but still think I would prefer an OEM. That being said, if I can't find a 2010+ OEM before long (I want the cable system), I am probably going to go with the TrekTop.
