JanaLD I bought the Trek Top NX and love the fastback look. I wanted to be able to take my windows out and leave only the top on. I have done this a few times but, the flapping noise is terrible when you get over 50 mph. I called Bestop and they were going to get in touch with engineering dept. to figure out what's wrong. Anybody else have this problem?

Hopefully I won't have a problem with him. He said I should receive my top mid March and we are now mid March and not here yet, but its only 5 weeks. Hoping soon, its going to be hot as crap in Texas soon.

I run my soft-top year round and snow/ice have never accumulated on the windows and I've never had to scrape them. My windows look the same now as they did before all the snowstorms.

NFRs2000NYC Don't sell your hardtop. Our area sucks 4 months a year, and you'll be killing yourself for getting rid of it.

I head Smiths Point was going to open this summer to my LIers, but there's going to be limited access to the outer beach either way, one of my favorite beach spots is gone.

Hope to see you guys out this summer! Don't forget to wave

& PS sorry for the late response to everyone, it's midterms week wahh!

Jeeps_and_Boats Also, something else to consider is that you can get a premium fabric on some styles of top. (should that be important)

hiiiii! I've been looking at the Bestop bikinis and I think I like them the best I agree lol I'm just in need of something that will cover the backseats in case of downpours! But either way I think I'm gonna get the emergency cover for that.

ibwile Hey, Welcome.

I am running the OEM premium soft top and love it so far. It was just fine in our big snowstorm (Nemo?). I was on the LIE during the whole thing.

I had both a hard and soft top on the TJ and was nervous about giving up the hard top winters. But this soft top is miles better than the old one.

That said, If I already had a hard top I don't think I'd get rid of it. (If you do, let me know!)

I am looking at the spidershade as an additional option myself.

X2 on the Trektop NX in Black Diamond

I installed this top on my jeep two weeks ago and love it. It is a bikini top, flip top, and full soft top all in one and it doesn't have a frame to store when you don't have the top on. Looks good too!

I live in Colorado and in the last two weeks the top has been snowed on twice. Not a big deal as others may say. This isn't my first soft top and on my TJ I ran a soft top year round in the winter. You just have to be a little more careful with it compared to a full hard top.

cam36 Hi! I'm from LI too! I have a 2012 two door that came with a hard top. I bought the trektop nx for the summer. I only had a soft top with my old tj and that did fine for the winters. But being that you already have the hard top I would not sell it. If you look on Craig's there are always used tops available. But look into the trektop! Hope to see ya on the beach this summer!

geckojk1 i would definitely not sell the hard top , i picked up a lightly used mopar soft top and had it on for 3 months before winter hit , overall i was happy with it except the wind noise and few water leaks i would not want to run it in the winter, as for which brand is better i will leave that to someone with a little more knoledge on them .
03-12-2013 08:55 PM
Bone A soft top in the winter is NOT a problem. I had one when I lived up in Alaska, no problems and no ice scraping required. I had a Bestop Trek Top NX on my LJ (sold my hard top to get it) and it was the best top I've ever had on a Jeep. Waaay easier to get the windows out than the OEM top and versatile enough to be three tops in one. Take out the three windows and there's your bikini top. It's also extremely easy to install, you can do it yourself, no trouble. The only issue, it's a little noisier than the OEM soft top is on my current '13 JK; not bad, just a little more noise.
