Trektop compatible w/ Clover Patch, HOSS, et al?

Hi all, newbie JK owner here. I just ordered the Trektop from Quadratec, and it should be in in a few weeks (backorder ). I was wondering about rear window storage for when I have the top down/off. Clover Patch and HOSS are the only things I've seen, really, that might work. Maybe Geoff could chime in?

Trektop back order is HUGE, but I'm hearing it should clear out soon. We have no idea what happened with the sales on that thing. Good for us, bad for you. Thanks for your patience.

The rear window dimensions are very close to same dimensions of a Supertop, so either window roll should be fine. And there have been several threads where people talk about making their own from flannel or similar.

Looks like you've been lurking a bit, but are just now starting to post? Welcome. And congrats on your JK. Have a good summer in it!

Thanks! Yeah, I've lurked a good bit since I found this forum. I didn't introduce myself because I kinda wanted to get a good feel for how the board operates and pick up on some of the lingo (dd, pita). This is my first jeep--I've wanted one since I was a kid, and I must say, I couldn't be happier! The bad part is, I'm coming to the painful conclusion that this rig is gonna consume a good bit of my $$, not counting gas. But that's the price you pay for the Jeep life, right??

As far as the Trektop goes, @Geoff, I have to ask a seemingly dumb question. I know that with the OE soft top and Supertop you can fold it back and tote it around with you while going topless. Dumb question: can I do the same thing with the Trektop? Or am I going to have to remove it completely to go "top down?" The main reason I got it was so that I wouldn't be stranded somewhere without a top if a sudden storm came up and lasted a while (for the overnights and quick rains, I bought the Bestop trail cover).

On the four door, you can fold the top back and secure it. So giant sunroof.

But on any of them, you can unclip the header, and push the top back. There are no pivoting bows, so it's more of a shove-n-stuff operation, but you can fold it neatly behind the seats, same as a regular top. The thing is, that's the same as taking it off - because there is no hardware, folding it down and removing it completely are virtually the same thing. Both easy to do.

mrhill09, Let me know when you get your Trektop if you have a successful install! I have a 4 Door JK and have had a terrible time with getting the top installed. One side I was able to get threaded, but the other side not! I'm looking for any "install tips" that might save me from having to return the top!

Thanks!

I, too will be interested in your Trektop experiences. I haven't ordered one yet but have just about decided that it will be the one.

I love my trektop.. It is a great top as long as you know what you are getting. You have to know that the sides don't come out, and expect to have a little water sitting on your roof after a good rain.

As far as the sunrider option goes, I roll mine back and use the tether through the door surrounds to secure it in the rolled position. It's easy to accomplish and I can put the sunrider back and secured within a minute now. Putting it back on is just as easy.

The back window won't "roll" up like other Jeeps, but it easily comes out. Just be sure that you install the top on a warm day and you won't have any issues. You wouldn't believe the amount of compliments I get on the trektop on my 05LJ. It really looks bada$$ when I have the doors off and the top still up, but a Jeep always looks bada$$ without the doors, so that might not be a selling point.

Will do, guys. In the meantime, I got my Spiderweb shade in today, along with my mirror relocation kit. The Bestop Trail Cover should be in Tuesday, so I'll at least be awesome looking while I await my Trektop
