Bestop "Trektop" for a TJ??

I just got a new JC Whitney catalog, and I noticed this new style of top I've never seen before. It was only pictured on the new models, although it is available for the TJ (and YJ too, I believe). Anybody have one on their TJ, and can post up some opinions and pics?

Bestop has had the trek top for a while actually.

Its actually good that Best top is making one. Competition forces better product and these are two companies that want to make the best one.

Unlike the Viking Top, the side windows on a Trek Top are not removable (but you can roll back the overhead front bit like a sunroof).

I love the sunroof feature, but I'm not quite sure that I'd like the non-removable side windows. It seems like putting the top down would damage those side windows in a short period of time. It would be nice to not have to mess with them though, when going out of town and leaving the windows at home is not an option.

Yeah I was planning on buying one myself and they do look a little pricey if you compare it to another soft top. But usually you get what you pay for and I haven't heard anyone complain about best top products. Seriously guys if you got pics show them off so we can get a better feel for the trek top.

No soft top hardware.

Are the windows really not removable?

how often do you ride in the back? ive heard from the viking that it restricts it some but not horribly. what i like about the viking is that you can remove the windows and theres a spot to store them inside the top on the roof.

I have a Trek Top for my TJ Unlimited. It's a bit pricey, but when the top's down (or off) it's completely off and it looks great not having the bars on the side of the back seat. The headroom in the backseat is a little smaller with this top, but like the guy said before, I don't sit in the back.
