Really quick soft top question

I bought my Jeep without a soft top, I think I am going to buy a bestop Trektop, so my question, is it going to come with all the hardware and materials needed to put it on?

Yes. I bought a trektop nx last year for my lj and it came with the door surrounds and tailgate bar (or whatever it's called) and required screws needed for the top. They originally forgot to include the door surrounds but I called 4 wheel parts and they sent them out right away. Other than that there is really not much to the top but everything you need is included! I love my trektop by the way so good decision on getting one!

Thanks for the answer, I heard its a pain to take off though, I like to ride topless so is it difficult to take it off or does it fold down like some do?

Folds down like a factory top plus has a sunrider feature. If you want a top that you take completely off look at a trektop nx

Hold on. I thought the Trektop NX by Bestop had two side panels and a rear panel and when you took them off you had no place to store them and they would not roll up for storage. I ask because I to am looking for a top for my TJ and I am still tring to sort it all out. I want something so I can start out with the top and then when the day gets warmer take the panels off. Then when nightfall comes around put them back on this would be great for travel. Any Ideas?

Then the trektop nx will be perfect!!! Go to YouTube and search for both he trektop nx and supertop nx. Bestop did some pretty good videos and it will show everything you need.

The Trektop does not fold down and is difficult to take with you. The Supertop NX has a frame lock the stock top and folds down.

it is not difficult to take off, but it is difficult to get the windows back in. it does not fold down like a regular soft top, due to the fact that it is frameless, but i usually just take the windows out and leave them out and then it is a bikini top, or if i don't take the windows out, i just flip the sun rider open, and it gives you a nice open air feeling
