Jp90Talon Looking at the options both have I would pony u the extra for the viking.

ExDementia Yeah, I'm done with the frames, they definitely are too much trouble to be worth paying another 300$ on top of the soft top.

trektop right now is 520$ with an instant rebate.
the viking top is still 675$ at the ebay store.

Schmo I for one really dig the style of the Viking. I also like being able to ditch those stupid frames. I think that will be the route I go when my top wears out . . . hopefully not anytime soon as those things aren't cheap from the sounds of it.

I will agree with that, but I think the flapping noise of the old top just masked the wind noise.

4point The Viking is much quieter than my original factory top. (no flapping at all)

Sb5551 I think they are better than the factory because they are held real tight against the roll bar.

Frat36 How are these tops when it comes to driving at highway speeds, do they flap around a lot or are they like the factory soft top?

Yea, I have 3 frames sitting in my garage they are a pita. I just don't like the look but to each their own. I couldn't remember the name of the top when I was complaining about their look the other day that is why I posted. Ignore me

4point Viking has an ebay store. They are cheaper there, at least they were when I got mine. I think I paid $560 for it.

Viking top or Bestop Trektop?

I'm in the market for a new top due to not only a worn out top, but bent spreader bars. I don't want to spend the money for a new top with hardware.

So I narrowed it down to the Viking top and the Trektop.

The obvious choice at first seems to be the viking top, with the excellent reviews, features, quality control, and customer service. I like how you can just fold up and separate the windows, while the trektops side windows don't even come off...

But the viking top is 100$ more + 60 for the header bar, + 140$ for upper door surrounds(for smittybilt, its 220$ for bestop).

The Trektop comes with upper door surrounds

Trektop = 577.95$ + tax & free shipping
Viking top = roughly 875.36$ + tax & shipping

Anyone had experience with the Trektop?

Thanks for the help
