Considering a Trektop

I'm thinking about selling the factory soft top and getting a Bestop Trek top Instead. Any thoughts? Bad idea?

Not to hijack the thread, but I have a couple of questions on the Trek top.

1. Can you remove just the rear window?
2. Can you open the "sunrider" portion when the rear window are removed?

Yes Yes

Saying that, driving over 45mph the rear would vibrate but there is a couple mods to fix this. The one I came up with was to replace the rear aluminum bar with a heavier galvanized pipe. I have been able to drive at 75 mph with no problems with windows out and sunrider open

Here is a pic with windows out and sunrider open

No place to store the trek nx in the Jeep tho. But you wont have to mess with all the bracket and hardware except by the headliner. I opted for the NX instead of factory, but I would just leave it in the garage whennot in use, or use it as a safari top w/o windows. Different set up options than stock and I think a better look without the slash in the side windows.

That's great. I saw your pipe mod looks like nice fix. I'm somewhat torn on the Trek top or going for the Super Top.

You cant fold the top completely back like the stock, tho it does have the sunrider feature. The nx uses the rollbar as its support. I mean if you have room, you can just toss the whole bundle in the back. The Supertop is similar to the oem design tho.
