hayoCT ExtremeTerrain, looking for a Supertop NX, can you PM me the ordering/discount info?

CountryBoyJeep So I found an OEM soft top to match my color of my hardtop for $100 on craigslist... Sold the day after I talked to the guy.

NolaTJ86 Just bought the bestop trektop nx black diamond on extremeterrian.com for $575.99. Install was a breeze and looks great. Posting pictures as soon as its complete. The weather is still a little cool. They weren't lying when they say the top needs to stretch.

dacheez Extreme - I would like the code as well. Thanks.

But have a couple of questions..
When you have it as a sun roof style can you actually drive the jeep at speed up to 75mph ?
Tried to find a video on raising and lowering the top but could find any. How easy is it ?

Trying to compare it to the Softopper.com one
ViperTrek,

Yea, I run mine on the highway everyday during the summer with it folded back, and have no problems with it.

to raise and lower the top, I'm assuming you mean to completely remove it, it's more involved than removing the factory top. The Trektop can't be simply folded back like a factory top, it has to be removed since it's attached to the rollbars and door surrounds.

To give you an idea of the install, here are the instructions for installing it on your Jeep.

Hope this helps, if not shoot me a PM I can help you out.

On top of that, we have an exclusive discount for Wrangler Forum Members and free sipping on orders over $75.

I created a post on a review on it on here do a search and there are other Jeeper's who posted and we all seem to love it.

Fitment issues? I don't have any and survived the TX winter rain storms with no leaks. When you have the factory door surrounds they fit right into the surrounds but on the Softtopper site they are upfront in letting us know that they might be a fitment issue if you have half doors.

We do have the Trektop available on our site. There is the NX and the standard on there. Shoot me a PM if you have any questions about either one!

I have the version that fits the factory door surrounds and I have no regrets paying extra for the surrounds.

The other version uses their own bar like surrounds I'm not sure how it holds up

Look them up on YouTube they show how easy it is to install (bar surrounds version)

Sorry about your loss. Khakis need not apply.... All black here. Hope you find that top a good home.

I'm w/ you brother. Ive been kind of hesitant on pulling the trigger on the Quad softy, but it's a sweet deal! I've got a ton of other stuff to do, and any money saved can go towards other projects on my beloved TJ. Thanks for the input my friend!

What's the quality/ fit? I've got a stock soft top frame, and am leaning towards the quad. I figure I can throw the money I'll save towards other stuff. Up here in the north east, I'll probably only have it on 6 moths anyway.........alright, maybe 8!

And it is not that much harder if you REALLY want to take it all the way off, couple straps, couple latches, couple pins and it can all be folded into the back.

Best price I have seen was less than $520 delivered.
Alright thank you!

All of these parts are included with the Bestop Supertop. I believe i saved about $100-150 by ordering through JEGS also.
The Bestop Trektop NX comes with all the same hardware.

Should also note the Bestop Supertop/Trektop and Bestop Supertop/Trektop NX are not the same thing. I had the older Supertop and it was a horrible top.
