x2, the issue with winter for framed tops is the frame is fairly weak and snow will bend it. On a frameless top the roll cage is the frame, not going to bend that. This last winter I wasn't able to keep the snow off the top (Rampage frameless) and we got a couple good dumps (1-2 feet). No issues an I'm going on 3 years with the top.

Bestop 56820-15 - Bestop® Trektop NX for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

Question is, is a running a frameless top full time, as your main top, is it a good idea? Will it hold up? Or is it more of a seasonal top for when you take off the hard top?

Thanks.
I run my Trektop on my JK year round and don't have any issues. It's just as strong as a regular framed top. If you're concerned about snow and ice making it sag, then just don't let it pile up. If it starts snows, I go out and brush off of the top of there's over an inch or so on it.

We can get you the Trektop for a great price, shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with the XT discount code for Wrangler Forum Members. We also offer freee shipping on orders over $75, no matter the item.
