Noob Soft Top Question

I bought my unlimited with the Dual Top so my soft top is still wrapped up inside (taking it out over the weekend)

I've seen some unlimiteds, even one at the dealer, where the soft top lays down over the rear of the roll bar and not like it's completely up. Is this just a different way to fold it or is that a different top? I think it's kind of a nice look.

You mean the Sunrider feature, where the front seat area is open and the rest is covered? That's just a different way of folding it, yours can do it too.

Edit: Video. This is for the 2-door though.

Was thinking more like this. But the more I see it, I see it would need to be a different top I don't think it could be done with the rear windows.

Oh you're talking about the Bestop Trektop, yeah that's a different top entirely.

I'll need to buy a soft top in the spring; mine just has a hard top right now. I kind of like the look of this type of top. Those who have one, what do you think? Pros/cons (other than the look, of course) over the standard type soft top?

Google "Bestop Trec Top NX"

Lots of info. The Trec has been around but this year, it is a lot better.

I don't care for it because there really is not any hardware. When off- you will have to store it somewhere. The Supertop NX is similar to OEM. Bestop actually makes the top for jeep but they have slight differences. Good luck
