Question JK Soft Top suggestions.

Hey guys. I currently have a hard top on my 2-D JK and was looking at getting a soft top to install on my Jeep. Any suggestions on brands or types?

I was looking online at the Bestop and ideally would like to get the Black Twill Supertop NX however the price tag is way too high for me. I was also looking at the Bestop Black Twill Trektop NX, although I'm not 100% sold on the look but like the price tag a lot more. Anyone have the Trektop that likes it or wish they had a different top?

Any suggestions on other brands other than Bestop that may be cheaper or better quality?

Also, anyone have any suggestions about side mirrors? I was wanting to take the doors off because its been so nice out but that would leave me w/o side mirrors. There is a relocation side mirror pack for about $60 but after reading the reviews I wasn't completely sold because the passenger side mirror is rendered useless after putting the doors back on.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

I have the Bestop Trextop NX & love it! You can run it a bunch of different ways....without the back window, without all windows as a bikini top, as a sunrider or just take it all off

Check out the first couple of pages of the Soft Top HELP!! thread. Most of your questions should be answered there.

You may be able to craigslist a used or new OEM premium top. I got mine from a local craigslister for $700 plus some throw ins. OEM premium and Supertop NX twill are essentially the same.

There a several options for mirrors; full relocation, brackets w/ mirrors on the windshield post, and door hinge mounted. I use harley mirrors that are mounted in the top door hinge. Cannot see the pass side one but my head swivels pretty well so who cares. Easy peasy.

And the little circular blind spot mirrors on the outside AC vents works pretty well and covers the mirror requirement in some areas.
