Review & Installation Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Bestop Trektop NX, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There's a version of this top available for both the two-door and the four-door Wrangler, so make sure you get the right one for your Jeep. This top is for those of you who have a worn-out soft top on your Jeep that you're looking to replace or those of you who have a hardtop and you're looking for a complete kit that'll more easily give you that open-air driving experience. Something that sets the Trektop apart from traditional, factory-style hardtops is that this is frameless, so it gives you that fastback look that a lot of you guys are after. It'll completely change up the look of the Jeep, especially from the profile, and set it apart from every other Jeep that rolled off the assembly line. Something else that I really like about this top, in particular, is that there are other fastback tops on the market, but this one by Bestop is really high-quality and you know it's gonna hold up well. In fact, Bestop makes the factory tops for the Jeep, so you know when you buy this and you put it on your vehicle, it's going to have the fit and finish of a factory top. As I mentioned, Bestop does make the factory soft tops for Jeep, so the black diamond material that this top is made of is going to look like factory, it's gonna hold up well, it's gonna match the rest of the Jeep. In fact, when you have this installed on the Jeep, it's gonna look like it could've rolled off the assembly line just like that. Now, Bestop does offer a Trektop, and then they offer the Trektop NX. This is the NX. Let's talk about the differences. This top has what Bestop calls a Sunrider feature, which means that the section of the top over the driver and the front passenger will very easily flip back to give you that open-air driving feel. In fact, it has its own little frame to make flipping back a lot easier. The NX also includes removable side windows that you see here. Those are the main differences between the Trektop and the Trektop NX. The NX has those additional features. It is, of course, a little bit more expensive, but, in my opinion, it's worth it for the extra features. The top includes tinted windows as well as all of the necessary hardware, clips, door surrounds, tailgate bars, everything you need to get this top installed. So whether you're coming from a factory soft top, another brand of a soft top, a hardtop, or no top, this includes everything you need. You won't need to get anything else to get this installed on your Jeep. Now, because this does have that slant-back fastback style, you will lose a little bit of height in the cargo area in the back of the Jeep, so depending on how you use your Jeep, that might be something to consider. Getting the top installed on the Jeep is really straightforward, although it is a little bit time-consuming. This is an area where you wanna take your time, pay attention to detail, to ensure that you get the top on the Jeep without the chance of it leaking the first time it rains. Bestop includes no less than 31 pages of install instructions along with the top, but, again, in this case, that's a good thing. Just take your time, and the install will go smoothly. The first couple of steps are to install some bracketry on the sport cage of your Jeep. You will have to make a couple of small slits in the roll bar padding, but don't worry. If you were to ever get rid of the top, the slits are so small that you'd hardly even notice them. From there, you can install the door surrounds, the top arches, and the side bows to get the top installed. From there, it's just installing the three back windows, and you're done. One tip for installing not just this soft top, but any soft top, is to do it when the top is warm. The material that these tops are made out of will shrink up in the cold, making it near impossible or impossible to install your soft top. Luckily, we're inside with heat, but we also had a really nice day. If you're installing this on your own, take it out of the box, lay it out in the front yard in the sun, and let it warm up. Trust me, it'll pay dividends in the end. Even installing this indoors when it's warm, it'd definitely help to have a second set of hands to pull and tug and get this thing on. The whole installation should take you about an hour, and you won't need any specialty tools, just a Phillips-head screwdriver and a 13-millimeter socket. Like I said before, there are tops that look and function like the Bestop Trektop that are less expensive on the market, but for my money, I'm gonna go with the Bestop. The build quality is there. The quality of the materials is there. I've run a couple of Bestops on my Jeep in the past, and I'll do it again when it comes time to get another top. Bestop has been making soft tops for a really long time, and Jeep trusts them to make the tops for all of the factory Jeeps. So if you're looking at an aftermarket top, I can't think of a better company to go with. So if you're looking to replace your worn-out soft top or you have a hardtop and you want that open-air driving experience and you like the fastback look, this is a nice top to go with. It might be a little bit more expensive than some of the other options, but from fit and finish to the quality of the materials and the build, I think it's worth the extra money. So that's my review of the Bestop Trektop NX, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Quality Soft Top. If you are a Jeep enthusiast who loves the fastback style soft tops, then you will fall in love with the Bestop Trektop NX, which is made for your 2007-2017 JK 2-Door model.

You will find that this top sports a sunroof that allows you to transform the top into a bikini top in seconds, no matter where you are. The sun rider canopy flips open easily and will allow fresh air to flow through your Jeep. The top does not fold down like your factory top, which is often a plus for many Jeep drivers. This top features a slant back top that comes with rear and side windows.

Removable Windows. The Bestop Trektop NX features removable windows. You can quickly and easily use the zippers to open and remove the windows all around your Jeep. You can store the windows conveninetly inside of your Jeep and reattach them once ready.

Triple Layer Twill. When you want a quality product, turn to the Bestop Trektop NX. This top is made from some of the best material and comes in a stark black color for you to enjoy. The fabric comes made from a triple layer twill and the support beam is made from steel. You will find this top has removable windows that are DOT approved and tinted, for your convenience.

      is this all the parts i need I currently have a Hardtop and want to add a soft top, I am looking at Bestop Trektop NX (07-15 Wrangler JK 4 Door) do I need any other kits to install this top?

      • This kit includes everything you'll need to go from a bare Jeep to the Trektop NX. No extra parts are required for installation.

      I installed my top yesterday and there is a gap between the bottom of the rear window panel and the gate. It's a small gap, but would allow water through. Will this stretch? Everything else fit properly. Also- can i flip back the sun rider when in bikini style?

      I've seen in the Q A that this top's sunroof feature will not open up past the front seats. How difficult would it be to completely remove the top for open air driving and put it back up if it started to rain? That would be removing the rear and side windows and then taking the top off. On my 2009 Sahara Unlimited I was able to fold the soft top back all the way in a few minutes, but I prefer the fastback style on the Trektop..

      • Yes, that is correct - for the Bestop Trektop NX you will only be able to utilize the sunrider function (open above just the driver/passenger seats) or go completely topless. In comparison to the standard soft top, it is a bit more tedious because your top would have to be completely taking your top off rather than just folding it back.

      Does this top fold back past the rear seats for open top above all seats looks like most hatchback style tops don't fold back far enough to include rear seats for sunroof style riding, hoping this one does...even if top doesn't fold all the way down like factory soft top would. Looking for replacement for hardtop to be able to enjoy some open top riding with kids.

      • No, because of the additional functions of turning into a safari top, this top (and generally all fast back style tops) will only have a front seat sun rider flip. Bestop's Supertop NX models are factory in appearance, but do offer the front and rear sun rider you seek. Check out item J15316 for more details.

      Are the trektop door surrounds compatible with the factory hardtop, or would they need to be removed/ reinstalled when swapping from hardtop to softop?

      • The Bestop Trektop NX door surrounds would be compatible with OEM and would be able to stay in place with the hard top

          Recommended

          This top is convenient and quick to convert. My husband and I watched the video before installing and also had the video on pausing step by step as we installed this top. I almost bought the top that's similar where the front didn't flip back because I like shade. I'm glad I bought this top for those warm yet partly cloudy days to feel the air! It only takes 5 seconds to flip it back. Fairly new to the Jeep life it took us 2 hours to install.

          Review from Bestop Trektop NX Soft Top (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK 4 Door)

          Looks great

          I just put on the Bestop Trektop NX Soft Top. 5-24-19. The youtube video was the best help for me. The written directions could use some work. It took me just over an hour once the hard top was off. The top looks great. It was quiet when I drove at speeds up to 50mph. We had severe rain the first day I had this top on and there were no leaks. At this point it is great. I gave it a 4 star rating due to the directions. If you did not watch the video this would take a long time to put on. I am looking forward to enjoying the product.

          Really like my new soft top

          I installed this for the summer to replace my hardtop. It took less then the time stated even though the instructions were vague on certain things. The top makes some noise at higher speeds but fits really secure. Can't wait for higher temps to take off the side and back panels. I left it lay out in the sun for over an hour and I don't think install would have been possible without this step.

          Easy to zip and unzip quickly. The sunroof is nice. It was easy to install when following a YouTube video and has a tight fit which looks good. Let the roof sit in the sun before installing so it can stretch. Somewhat loud on a windy day driving on a highway though.

          Trektop NX Soft top

          I recently purchased this top for my 2015 JKU. I absolutely loved the new look It gave my Jeep! However when the first rain storm came it leaked terribly! Like to the point that the entire front seat was soaked and a steady stream was coming from above the center console. I expected a few small leaks here and there but nothing that bad. My husband installed it using the directions and the help of a YouTube video so I know it was installed properly. Thank goodness the rain came a day before the return policy expired and I’m able to get my money back.

          DIfficult and Tidious

          I was so excited about this top. I removed my hard top and put it up. Then I began the long 2 day installation of this top. THis is my first Trektop, so I thought it would be fairly simple to install. It is nice quality and is good material as far as I can tell. I have had jeeps for years so I know a little about soft tops. The back window zippers did not match, the back tailgate bar does not meet my tailgate, there is a 1 inch gap between the rubber and the gate. This is going to leak, It will take about 30 minutes to remove 3 windows and it will take me about 1.5 hours to attach them back on due to the fact of the difficulty and zipper issues. And there will always be a gap between the back window and tailgate.

          This is a pretty sweet top! It’s definitely not as noisy as I thought it was gonna be. Only downside is the instructions said about 2 hour install time... it took me about 8. I let it bake in the sun, and it was still very tight.

          Bestop delivers

          Just installed the Bestop NX top for our 2008 JK X. Looks great and went on without any real issues. You do have to zip the rear window in before you install the bottom edge of the side windows but that was the only glitch. Road around Saturday night with the top open and did not fight the wind or noise. Great top.

          Besttop Trek-top is truly a better top

          I cannot speak for any hardtop owners but my OEM soft top was loud. This top has cut the noise by 75. I have a light bar also and think it would be closer to 90 if I did not. Now this top was a real beast to put on. It only took about 2 hours but it was an aggravating 2 hours but once it is on it is on and tight hence the noise reduction. It’s supposed to be tight. After getting the zippers about half way I would wait to zip them all the way the next day. It looks great and work like a champ. We had a severe thunderstorm 3 days after I installed it and the interior was dry as a bone the next day. Anyone looking for a far superior option to the basic OEM soft top this is the one to go for.

          Review from Bestop Trektop NX Soft Top (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK 4 Door)

          Great Top!!! (Well Worth Your Money)

          I had the original top that came with my Jeep back in 2007. So as you can assume, it was time to retire it. The original top was leaking like crazy and was insanely loud going down the road. I had to yell at my passengers to have a conversation. So far, we've had some intense rain storms and absolutely no leaks at all in my Jeep and it's so quiet I can actually whisper to passengers in my car and be heard. The install was fairly easy. It definitely helps having a friend help you install it. With getting the old top and installing the new top, it took about 2 1/2 hours. The hardest part was just getting the old top off. There is minimal cuts that you have to do to the fabric to get the top on, but it's not noticeable at all. I absolutely love this new top!! I love the option of pushing back the top for a open top ride, and it's so easy and quick to do. I also love the sleek slanted back design. It definitely turns heads at stop lights and parking lots. You do lose a little cargo space in the back, but if you're not worried about that, get this top, you'll love it and won't regret it!!
