Simple installation for anyone.
I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Bestop Supertop NX for the 2007-2016 JKs. Bestop is available for both the two-door and the four-door for the JK and it's available for in the black diamond material that you see here and a higher quality twill material. This is for those of you who currently have a hardtop on your Jeep and are looking for a soft top that includes all of the components necessary to get it installed on your vehicle. Now this is a premium top that comes along with a premium price tag. But if you're looking for the highest quality of top that's going to look and function like factory and you have the budget for it, this is the top you should be looking at.This top is designed exactly like a factory soft top is. And there's a good reason for that. Bestop has been making the factory soft tops for Mopar for a long time. So whether you choose to go with this black diamond material or the higher quality twill material, the top you get is going to both look and function just like a factory soft top would. It's going to function like the factory top because of all the components that are included with this kit that get it mounted on the Jeep. And it's going to have all the features and functions of a factory soft top as well. So you're going to have the sunrider function, you're going to have quick-release knuckles on the bows so you can completely remove the top if you want to, you're going to have the adjustable cable tensioning system, and of course, all of the removable tinted windows.Now there are a lot of components that come along with this kit and there are a lot of instructions as well. So you're going to want to take your time, probably have a second set of hands around, and really pay attention to the details so that you get this top installed on the Jeep right the first time and you have a completely leak-free top. Now going through the process of the installation you'll start with installing the door surrounds and all of the brackets onto the Jeep and the support cage itself. From there you'll start by attaching the bows and the arches to the canvas material attach that onto the Jeep, then you can start installing the windows and you'll be finished. The whole process should take about three hours and you won't need any specialty tools just some hand tools. Now, like with any soft top when you're installing it the first time the material is going to be really tight. And because of the way this material reacts to both hot and cold it will shrink a lot if it's cold making installation that much more difficult. So I definitely recommend putting the material in a nice warm place before you start the installation or if you have a nice, sunny summer day, put it right on the front lawn and let it bake in the sun for awhile. It's going to pay dividends when you go to install the top. This top is going to be more expensive than other tops on the market even more expensive than other tops that include all of the same components. But in my opinion, it's worth it. This is a really high-quality top and for a soft top that when it sits out in the weather can take a beating, you want something that's going to hold up over time. So if you have to pay a little bit of a premium for this, again, in my opinion, it's worth the extra cost. And honestly, if you have the budget for it the twill material is really nice. It's going to hold up even better it looks great, and it certainly won't flap going down the highway. Again, it's definitely worth the upcharge if you have the budget for it. So if you currently have a hardtop on your Jeep and you're looking to go with the soft top so that you can have that open air driving experience a lot easier than moving a big heavy hardtop around every time this is the best possible option in my opinion. Again it comes with all the components you need, it's really high quality and it's worth the price. So that's my review of the Bestop Supertop NX fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Amazing product easy to install, I took it to Jeep and they said lots of parts, simple to put together but takes 3-4 hours...( delivered unassembled ,only way it can be I believe ) it looks so good and the tinted windows give it the sleek look. Well made. Quality for a great price. You get what you pay for. Don’t skimp on the top department! I’m glad I didnt and this is a product I would recommend to any buddy wanting one, Neighbors and coworkers all complimented it and noticed the new change. :)Helpful (3)

Bestop is probably the best top
Love my new soft top. It's durable yet simple to work. I put it together myself although some things I could have pre-assembled, to kill some time, before going step by step with the manual. Over all I give 5 stars.Helpful (4)

Great soft top for JK
I switch off between my hard top and soft top every summer/ winter. I love my extreme terrain soft top! Easy to store as well as it folds up nicely.Helpful (2)

nice for the summer
I installed this myself in about 3 hours. I leave this on for 6 months and then switch to the hard top for the winter. Nice top- I would suggest buying a storage bag for it and then it can hang on the wall out of the way when not in use-Helpful (3)

Great looking product
This is a really great looking product, the installation was pretty easy, took us longer than estimated but we missed a step and had to redo... it's a tight fit (which is good), so was a bit challenging. Now we're ready for summer...Helpful (4)

Great once on
The product is great. Fits great, looks great and is an overall good product. The instructions were less than perfect. We had to watch multiple videos and search online because the instructions were so vague. One item or advice we would like is, when we return to the hard top in the fall. How or what is the best way to store the soft top for next year.Helpful (3)

Ok, not sure which top to go with..need help deciding. Need to be able to store and transport removable windows in Jeep; want sunrider option; prefer box back; one person operation mandatory; all of the tops seem to have their own issues; seems like a lot to disect
To get a top with a true Sunrider option, Bestop would be the brand to go with. The most difficult part will be to have removable windows that can be stored in the Wrangler, and one person operation. Tops such as the Bestop Trektop NX Glide will be ruled out as their windows cannot be easily stored, whereas tops such as the Supertop NX can easily have the windows rolled up, but one person removal/installation of the top is more difficult (though not impossible). With your requirements, I would recommend the Bestop Supertop NX as this will get you easily stored windows, and the square back and the Sunrider option, however one person operation outside of the Sunrider feature will require a bit of practice and a little additional time.
Can this top and the frame be used simultaneously with the hardtop during the off season??
The Bestop Supertop NX will need to be removed in order to install the hard top.
I want to switch back and forth between may hard too and a soft top. Is this done easly with this top? not just going from hard to soft but then going back to hard. Also earlier it says there is hardware with self tapping screws will that hardware stay in place when converting back to hard top or will it have to be removed?
This top can be easily taken off and on to install the hardtop. Most of the hardware would be attached to the actual soft top when removing it, staying in place. You would however have to remove the tailgate clips, which holds your tailgate bar in place and the door surrounds. Other than that, you would be good to go!
does this product come with all neccesary hardware to install including door surrounds and tailgate bar?
This top will definitely ship with all hardware needed for proper installation. It is intended to lend everything needed in the event that you have never had a soft top installed or any of the hardware needed for that install.
Will this top remove/install easily each fall/spring so I can still use my hardtop in the winter?
Yes, the install of the Bestop Supertop NX, Black Diamond (07-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door) for the first time is a little time consuming but after that switching back and forth between tops is easy.
Yes, the Bestop Supertop NX is for the 4 door Wrangler and Rubicon models.
The Bestop Supertop NX, Black Diamond (07-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) has 30-mil, D.O.T. approved vinyl side and rear windows have 31% tint to help keep interior cooler in warm weather.
The decal can be removed from the rear window.
The strap kit is used to hold down the top when the sunrider is folded back to keep it from moving, and when the top is fully folded back.
Hello, this would be exactly the soft top that you would need and it does come with everything for you to switch from a hard top to a soft top.
The closest fabric available would be a twill fabric.
This can be driven on the highway at those speeds yes.
Removal of the front top arch is not necessary when folding the Bestop Supertop NX Soft Top down. If you choose to remove it while the top is down, please note you will want to reinstall it before folding the top back up.
Yes, this can be installed/used when the doors are completely removed.
Your soft top will take some time to 'stretch' to its final tightness. These are made tight to prevent flapping.
