Like mine so far.



The rear window comes out but the sides dont. I got mine a couple of days ago and havent had any problems yet. And the install is really easy.

This looks great. Mine is on the way, hopefully it will look as good as yours.

I really like the way the Trektops look, but unfortunately, I already have a factory soft top and I don't feel like changing it. Maybe when I have a few extra bucks. They do look really good though...

None so far. The door surrounds they provided work great and the door closes tight. Its been through 2 rainstroms and no leaks can be found any where.

Lord knows we've had our fair share of rain this June...

I just put on a new Rampage frameless top. It looks similar to the Bestop one in the above pics except all 3 windows come off. It also has a cool "storage" space within the top itself to lay/secure the windows if you take them out, as well as some cargo-net pockets above driver and passenger seats. I've only had it on a couple days...but really love it. A lot of straps...but took less than 45 minutes to put it on for the first time out of the box (and that was the first time I'd ever put any kind of soft top on!)

Just put my trek top on last week. It seems nice so far, no louder than factory and seems better made than my factory top.

Also a frameless top check out Softopper. All windows are removable, made of sailcloth and quiet.

I would avoid the Pavement Ends brand Flip Top.

Just bought that and sent it back to exchange for Rampages frameless top before I even finished installing it. It felt like it would break apart.

thanks for the warning....

My wife may just have to live with a replacement top....
Not sure I want to spend 800 for the besttop flip type top... but maybe I'll spring for tinted windows..
