I recently purchased a Trektop NX for a 2012 JK. I am having issues that others in the forum are having. There appears to be a design flaw with the rear support bar and the rear straps.
1. The seam is ripping on both sides of the top piece where the back straps connect to top at the support bar sleeve.
2. Support bar slips out of sleeve during driving in safari mode after only a few minutes. Tightening rear support straps seems to help, but the top will then rip more. I have read about and implemented a few workarounds, but it seems like a flaw the factory should fix.
I will start the warranty process tomorrow, but I don't want to receive a top with the same issues. Other than the above, I really like the top.
Does anyone know if the Bestop has acknowledge the issues and plans to redesign the rear area of the top?
