Ready to purchase TrekTop Nx
 
Do any of you guys use a specific vendor for best prices, customer service, forum discounts etc... I have been researching online all day and the best I have found is $649.99 plus free shipping for the unlimited version in black diamond. This is before any forum discounts if there are any.

Hi, I have been searching around too for a softop ( Trektop NX ) . love my hardtop, but really like the idea of a soft top.
I have seen quadratec, and most others for about the same $650 with free shipping.

I did find it cheaper last night, but was not a authorized Bestop distributor..

any one else see is for less ????

stryke-force 04-30-2013 06:59 PM

Check on amazon.com I wanna say they had it for around $604 (jku) and quadratec price matched and free shipping.

BlackHills 04-30-2013 07:15 PM

Nice, ill try that. Also I am assuming that the newer ones have the updated tailgate bar like Orem right, or do I need to be looking for one of them as well?

stryke-force 04-30-2013 08:07 PM

I checked my records and yes, it was $604.44 but it was back in Sept. of '12. Yes it did come with everything needed and the bar for the rear door. I like it a lot, went thru the winter with it and now I'm just using it as a bikini top.

GunToter 04-30-2013 08:11 PM

I went to google shoping for mine. Payed about 550.

stryke-force 04-30-2013 08:17 PM

There you go, even better.

Just found one for 554.33 free shipping. Not sure if they are an authorized dealer or not and how warranty issues might be handled. Would rather use a forum sponsor vendor but this price is hard to beat. Still not sure i will pull the trigger from this site or use a forum sponsor. If you are not as skeptical as me and want the website shoot me a PM as I won't share it on the forum.

rics1997 04-30-2013 11:39 PM

You can try the forum vendors also. Last year, Jeepaddons got me a great deal on my Trektop NX.

I do have to ask, is that price for a 2 or a 4 door?

Paid $686 for mine but would have only been $647 if I didn't live in the same state as Quadratec and got stuck with the sales tax. Just finished installing mine today...everything went pretty well, hit a few snags along the way but nothing that wasn't easily figured out. I definitely like the look, and I have not seen many in my area, so for now it is semi-unique. :thumb:

Talk to Big J from Quicklyparts that guy has awesome service !

BlackHills 05-01-2013 03:58 PM

That is for the 4 door. I triple checked it since it seemed low.

Jeeps_and_Boats 05-01-2013 04:57 PM

Unrelated, (I have this top ready to go)

How do you open the tailgate?

2013BilletJK 05-01-2013 05:04 PM

If anyone has a link to some of these prices you have found it would be greatly appreciated if you could share them(I have a 2 door). Did a brief search on amazon found some for similar prices to most jeep stores. (Although I found a great deal on a mesh bikini top(

^ looks great.
what can you do with this top
I know you can take the back part off and use as a Safari top.

can you also fold it all back ? and is this relatively easy to do?

bluehash 05-01-2013 07:55 PM

You cannot fold it all the way down... but I do think it can do a sunrider where part of the top folds over the remaining...Correct me if I'm wrong.

No, you can not fold it all the way back, it only has the sunrider option where it folds back to uncover the front seats. It only requires unlatching the 2 header latches.

And yes, you can remove the rear and side windows transforming it into a safari top.

^ thanks.
I thought you could fold it all the way back. :(
I still think I may get that top, at least for summer.
love how the fastback style looks, and every time I take my hardtop off.
Always worry about rain...

How do you open the tailgate?

The top does not change the operation of the tailgate at all.


As far as folding it back, no-go. But something I realized while removing the entire top today (wish I had thought of this earlier) is that, at least on my 2 door, one the top is removed you can wrap the top around the header (between the sunrider arms) and it sets down inside the tailgate where the stock soft top would sit when folded down. Fits nicely. A bungee strapping it down for the warm-fuzzy and your good to go.

sdchickie 05-04-2013 10:56 AM

Can you post a picture so I can have a visual? I really like the looks of this top, but I want to be able to take it with me when I have it all the way off. I wasn't sure how the parts would fit in my jeep with it completely removed. Also, how long does it take to completely remove/reattach the top? Thanks!

I'll get a picture for you mid week. The Jeep is naked right now. But to be a little more clear,

With the side and rear windows out, completely remove the top. Hold the header on the sides and spin it around wrapping the top around the header like a pig in a blanket. The bars that connect to the door surrounds for the sunrider will still be sticking out. Then just lay the wrapped up header just inside the tailgate with the bars straddling the lower legs of the roll bar on top of the fender wells. Then just secure it with bungees or something. It will basically look like the stock soft top folded down, except it wont have the frame work bolted to the roll bar.

Easily able to take it with you...but would recommend a window bag....homemade and "over size".

The one I had from when I had OEM ST is working fine (homemade) but it could have used another inch or two in width.

A "duster" makes it very nice and gives it a clean look

panthermark 05-06-2013 07:55 AM

I got mine for $557 shipped from the bestop outlet site about 2 months ago...but traded it for a 2013 premium top.

Thanks for the picture, would it still lay flat with the rear seat in? I have a 2 door as well, but I need my back seat. Also how quick can you put the top up like if it rains?

Yes on my TJ it will still lay flat with backseat in....and how fast it goes up if it is raining is one of those it depends.....how "good" or "organized" are you?

It has been a while (3 years) since I had to do the hurry it is raining OEM ST thing, but as tight as my new top is it won't be the 5 min start to finish it was with stretched OEM...but close....and actually since I run duster and have soft uppers I could get home just putting the Safari portion back up.....

I went with the Trektop classic instead of the NX because I wanted to be able to roll back the top for the backseat passengers also (my kids love it). It also is about $100 less than the NX. It's not as refined, the side windows don't come off, but the back one does and it still looks awesome.
