Question for bowless soft top owners

I'm looking to have a bowless top on my 4door JK, and it looks like my options are the classic trektop and the off road heros tops. (I know the Trektop NX is coming out, but I don't want the sunrider hardware, that is why I'm trying to get away from my factory soft top)

From their website I see that you can just roll up the front part of the ORH top, but I'm wondering what you do with the back half. Can it just be rolled up and stowed? Also how substantial/water tight are the door surrounds for it?

Pictures of the interior that shows any of the structure of the tops would be extremely helpful, but really any advice would be appreciated. Thanks very much for your time.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think you only need door surrounds for the Sunrider on the NX... All frameless tops need surrounds, tailgate bars and headers, afaik. I am not familiar with the workings of the ORH tops tho...

The classic Trektop comes with door surrounds. They're not the factory style surrounds, but they work great.

The back panel/window can be rolled up or removed. The sides do not remove. You can take the whole thing off and stow it behind the seat.

I don't have any photos showing the inside of the top. But it's pretty standard: no bows means you see way less metal, fewer "pockets" and flaps and snaps than with a factory top.

(edit: I just realized some of your questions were about our competitor's top. Sorry. My answers only for sure apply to our top.)
