But, I do have a complete top and it is on my JK. It really eats at me when I see that great deal just a little to late...

I hear what you are saying. I clicked on the link and noticed that the Trektop NX was on sale for about $70 less than what I paid for it back in March from the same site....

It looks like the hardware and brackets look like the factory stuff.

Ones on Craigslist going from $650 and up. So a new one is less hassle and will be delivered to my door. So it sounds like I have talked myself into it..

I ordered my Trektop NX (4 door) and it was like $650 delivered...but I had found a super-duper sale (like the one I just posted). However, I never took it out of the box....I traded it for a new-in-box Premium top.

I'm in sunrider mode 90% of the time....and I have no flutter regardless of the rear window being in or out. My favorite mode is sunrider and no windows, but with a 3 week old, I keep the windows in now.

I also have a 4 door and a spiderwebshade.....so that could be the difference. On a 4 door, the sunrider is open over both the front and rear passengers....so being in sunrider mode really opens it up....and the SWS keeps it cool.

I'm in sunrider so much, I've stopped latching front (when parked) unless it is going to be a hard rain...and I've also stopped strapping the bars down on short trips.

Jeep Rat Amazon has the Super Top Twill for $1132. Not bad.
07-17-2013 02:29 PM
viperx6x9x I was considering a sunrider for my TJ actually. We have so many sudden rain showers here, and i have a really short commute to work. No point taking the top down when i leave and putting it up when i get there. I thought it would be nice to just flip the front piece and have a quick sunroof and some open air for the commute. It's not even a long enough drive to get the AC going good.

This is what i'm getting. Can't stand the cumbersome fabric... Frame... Etc on my 4dr. Pita!!!!!!!
07-12-2013 09:29 PM
wrangler49009 That Trektop looks like a great deal. I like the way it contours at an angle in the back rather than the boxy look. Are there pro's and cons to both styles?
07-10-2013 07:54 PM
tupper I wasn't sure I'd like the suntop either, however, after using it a few times when it looked like it was going to rain or I didn't want to take the entire top down, I really enjoy it........ I can open up and get more sun while waiting for the red light to change green!
