Bestop offered a free install at the time, so I bought it locally at 4WheelParts at a little less than what Bestop direct wanted. I didn't keep anything from the factory top. The TrekTop comes with everything for a complete install.
As far as using it? It's nicer than the factory with one exception. First the three windows are a snap to remove, it takes a little practice to put them back on and they do slide on easily. IMO the two side windows snap in firmly at the doors, unlike the factory top.
The only zippers are on the back window. The top of the window slide on across and the sides zip down. Zippers are by far of better quality than OEM. It's another reason I decided to get rid of of the old top.
The flip back Sunrider is an ease to open from a seating position and light enough to close it back.
I mentioned an exception, and it's that the entire top doesn't fold back like the factory top. The best you get to being topless is by flipping the Sunrider and rolling the top back towards the sound bar and tucking it under the Sunrider. It stays together at freeway speeds. At first I tied it with a bungee, but it's not necessary.
You may have searched through YouTube already, the video link below is the best one I found for a 2 door example on using the TrekTop NX Plus, most videos are for 4 doors.
I hope I gave you enough insight. If you have questions post back.
Best of luck with your search, it took me 6 months to pull the trigger on a Bestop.
