curious on storing the TrektopBX

I like the ideas behind TrektopNX alot - am curious how to store the top in the jeep if you want it completely off? Not sure if this will be a pain or not....Or will it just be easier to have it in sunrider mode with all the windows off. Looking forward to seeing some pictures and Videos once it is available!

Any updates on WHEN it will be available? I took my hardtop off a week ago here in So Cal.

I've got the new Trektop NX. Bestop used my jeep for the testing and photo/video shoots. First few observations are very positive. I had the original trektop and this one is worlds better.

-Much quieter at highway speeds probably due to support bar that minimizes flapping
-rear window is attached at the outside which would alleviate my biggest complaint of trying to re install by contorting myself to get the window reattached in the little slider that is in an awkward place
-all windows detach allowing for a bikini top covering the front and rear seats.
-sunrider(havent tried yet) is an awesome feature.
new door surrounds look way better and will be much more user friendly
-I dont have pictures which is the most important part but they will be up shortly and Bestop will have a video out as well.
I will post more info when I can.
Overall, This is a great looking very practical/user friendly product and I would highly recommend the Trektop NX if you are in the market for a new soft top and like the sleek agressive look of the trektop.

With the trektop are you able to have passengers sit in the rear seat without having to lean down?

(Waiting to hear about rear passengers head room)

I talked to Quadratec on Friday the 25th. They quoted early April for tinted tj nx top. Tried to get me to pre order on the phone. I balked, with my luck I'd be out the better part of $600 till Oct. 2012 delivery. I'll believe their in when their in! Definitely want one though!

On the unlimited there are no issues with rear passenger headroom. The roll bars go well aft of the rear seat. There is no interference with headroom and roll bar placement and therefore no way that headroom would take a hit with the TrekTop. I can not speak for the SWB. Also, it is a Safari Style Bikini Top with all windows removed. Sorry for the confusion.

That video is rough, and will get edited a bit.

I am really liking this top. In my mind the only real disadvantage is going to be the pain of folding it behind the seats. I'm guessing most people will leave it on all the time, and just run it as a Bikini when the weather is good. Which is what I do all summer long anyway: just run a Bikini that I never remove.

Yea I was going to buy that one but I went for the supertop nx because I like to be topless as much as possible and have the ability to quickly put the top back on when it starts to rain.
