Robert C. From 1 to 10 i would say a 7 at first but as it warmed up its easy. It was hard to get the windsheild channel down and latched the first time. But it is supposed to be tight. I flipped back the sunrider feature last night for the first time and it was easy as pie. And putting it back was no issue. I love the look and how much you can see out of the back and side windows

The rampage material looks nice/feels great but the zippers aren't of the best quality. My rear window zipper started breaking after only a month....

jfallon83 My friend has a Rampage top on his 2001 and I have Trektop NX on my 1997. I really like the pocket Rampage, but the fit isn't as good and he has had several straps snap on him and he's only had it for about a year. If they would work in a pocket into the Trektop, it would be perfect.

Here's a pic of my Trektop last week in Florida with sides off, going bikini style:

micah360 here's a better shot of it. The windows zip in and out very quickly, but there is no pocket to carry them in like the Rampage top...

micah360 I have the Bestop Trektop NX. It's an awesome top. No sagging, nice and tight, good quality and pretty quiet at highway speeds.

I was considering the Rampage top too... but I was put off by most of the photos I've seen of the sloppy fit on the windshield channel and the slight sag on the top of the back window.

In my book it was worth the extra coin for the NX top.

Squid90 Remember to consider if you are switching from a hard top you will need to get door surrounds, windshield channel ect to run the frameless. Tops such as trektop nx and softopper come new including all of the needed hardware, while the rampage frameless can be a cheaper option if you already have the needed hardware.

Robert C. You have the bestop trek top nx to i am ordering that one on fri
05-21-2013 01:01 PM
Neil F. There are several options for frameless/safari tops. Softopper is another. Do searches on all. There are lots of posts and comparisons

jerry74 Thanks guys, I'll look into the rampage top.
05-20-2013 05:34 PM
workshop4ever I too have the rampage frameless, and love it. I spent the past few days running just the safari top and love having the option of putting the windows back in when they call for a week full of rain.

Wanting to get a safari top....

and I have a few questions. I like the idea of having side windows to put in if the weather gets ugly. What do you guys think about the Trektop NX from Bestop? Is there another top I should consider? Thanks!
