Got the a New Trektop NX

I hope Sunday is warm enough to put it on. From what I have read this is a great top. I can't wait to get it on.
Pics after the weekend.

I got mine on when it was cold. I put it on, turned on the heat and let it sit. I didn't completely zip them up right away. I let the top stretch and would slowly zip it up.

Thanks for the heads up. It is supposed to be 71 Sunday I am going to let it sit in the sun for a few hours.

Looks good. I left mine on for the last couple months and really allowed it to stretch. I took it off this last weekend, and had to put it on Saturday night due to the weather. Took me 10 minutes at most to put the sides and back window back on. Everything zipped up easily and went on quickly. Remember to loosen the rear straps when you put the sides on again, made it a lot easier.

What top where you running before. I have an 04 LJ with what i believe is the original soft top. Trying to decide on getting some form of trek top or buying a "replace a top" and bikini. I've run this top quite a bit w/o the sides and rear window--- which probably wasnt the best Idea as the rear corners dont hold as well as they should. (no matter though.. the windows are scratched, the zippers suck, the velcro is worn.... the more I break it the easier it is to sell the wife on a new one :P )

AGREE, Dont force the install. i installed mine in 50 degree weather once, some time and heater running it wasnt that hard to do

I was running the trektop not the trektop nx. The side windows were part of the top. If you have the hardware a replacement top might be the easiest.
