Anyone have an LJ and a trektop NX?

My top is about shot, and was looking for a replacement top. While looking I came across the trektop NX and thought I'd ask who has one? how long have you had it? And would you buy one again?

Hey there, I have an LJ and got this very top about a year ago.
I really like it. Good quality and the price was right. It looks sweet, especially on an LJ having a fast back look. You need to install in on a warm day though to let the fabric expand. I would definitely purchase it again. Any other questions you just let me know.
cheers.
Good luck,

Have had mine on for 2 months. Make sure you get the generation 2. Better connections on the 2.

I will second that, I have one as well and installed last week on my 04 LJ. I am in love with the new top and new look as it is way more sleek and stylish. It is much quieter than the stock top as well and none of that frame hardware in the way. I love the sun rider as well very easy. The construction and quality is much better than the stock top I had so yes GET ONE!! Looks awesome on an LJ!!!

So happy to have replaced the factory top on my LJ with a frameless.... softtopper. My LJ is a weekend warrior and we ride with the top off. Hated that fact that the factory top killed all of my storage when it was down. The Soft topper is great in that I can roll up the top and keep it behind the seat. We hit rain the other day heading out to the beach. I was able to stop a 100 yards before hitting the wall of water and get the bikini/safari portion of the top on in less than a minute. I think the only downfall (and the reason I didnt get it) of the best top is that the sunrider adds structure to the top so if you take it off it isn't easily transported in the jeep. Both are great tops and look fantastic... all comes down to how you're going to use it

I've had this top for a little over a year now and I love it! Looks great and fits great. Make sure you put it on when it's hot or else it's gonna take forever. I would definitely get it again!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I think Im going to go ahead and get the trektop. During the summer, only the top will be on for shade, windows and doors are off pretty much all summer. Glad to hear its actually quieter than stock.

I talk to a local guy pretty regularly that has one and uses it as a DD and loves it. He drives 100 miles a day and he said it is much quieter than the stock top. I think they look good on the lj.

Sparky, not an LJ, but a TJ and I've had mine for 3 years now and LOVE IT. It's as "right" as the first day I got it and I love all the different options for how to "wear" it depending on the weather. This is the way I "wear" it most of the time:

Now that we have the trektop, how do you guys store it in the jeep when you have it off?

I don't. I leave the windows at home and leave the safari top part up top. If the windows have to go somewhere with me, I put them on the Jeep. They are just too much of a hassle to store in the Jeep with a ton of camping gear.

And since we are sharing pics

I am not sure if the windows are bigger than normal but my windows are rolled up with fabric between them around a pool noodle and slid into an old folding chair bag. They have been there for at least a year but I throw it behind the seat if I take a trip. $0 solution with stuff around the house.
