I have been lurking and watching the reviews for the Trektop NX and want to pull the trigger soon....but I have a few questions; I figured since they have been out and on folk's jeeps for sometime now I would get some more insight:
1) If I have read/understand correctly, the back and sides are dependent on each other, so one cannot roll up the back and drive around with the sides on, correct? In other words, the entire back is either on or off, right?
2) the size and re-enforcing bar of the side windows make them impractical to remove and carry around in the back, (along with the rear window rolled up and stowed as per q: 1 above) especially without some sort of scuff protection?
3) After having the top installed for a couple of months now, how is the "hook & loop" material holding up? It always seems that the hook an loop material is the first to wear out (speaking from boating experience and the condition of my current Jeep OEM). Never been a big fan of velcro for these kinds of applications, but it seems to be a necessary evil.
In general, if you have the TT-NX, do you decide if you are going safari ahead of time and just leave the panels at home? or carry them with you?
4) Has anyone tried to put a trail cover over the safari mode top? Specifically, will a besttop trail cover fit over the Trektop NX when in 'safari mode'? I am curious if the support bars of the Trektop would interfere with the fit of the trail cover...?
Oh yeah...I have a 2007 Sahara JKU
