Review & Installation Video

I am Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and today we have a four-door 2016 JK that we're adding a second round of mods to. When this came to us, it already had bigger tires, a lift, and an LED front bumper. Even though this Jeep does have a lift and some 33s, it doesn't see a lot of off-road time, so the mods we added today were more aesthetic than anything else, although they do add some functions as well. So let me walk you through the build. Starting from the front to back, the first mod we added in this round of the build is a winch. Now, I know you're thinking you just said the mods that you added were aesthetic and not functional, and generally a winch is a functional mod. But I think, if we are being honest with ourselves, a lot of people are running a winch just because they like the look. It makes the Jeep look a lot tougher, a lot more like it does goes off-road, and a lot more utilitarian. And hey, at the end of the day, it's your money, it's your Jeep, you build it how you want to. For this Jeep, we decided to go with the Barricade 9500-pound synthetic line winch that we were able to bolt up without the need for a winch plate because it already had this Barricade Trail Force HD front bumper with the lights. We decided to go with the 9500-pound capacity winch to save a little bit of money because this Jeep isn't going to see a lot of off-road use. The general rule of thumb is you want your winch-pulling capacity to be about one and a half times the weight of the vehicle. And this is a four-door JK with big heavy wheel and tire package and some armor on it, so it does have a little bit of weight to it. But again, this winch isn't going to see a lot of use because the Jeep doesn't see a lot of trails. So going with the 9500-pound winch was able to save us a little bit of money over something larger like a 1200-pound winch. We did decide to go with a synthetic line on this winch over a steel cable, which is a little bit of a price upgrade, and it has some additional benefits and drawbacks. I like synthetic line mostly because its lighter and more flexible, so it's easier to pull up a muddy hill when you are on the trail. And most importantly, a synthetic line, if it breaks under a load, will not snap back, which can be very dangerous and cause damage to the vehicle. As I mentioned, it is more expensive than steel cable. Steel cable, on the other hand, is more abrasion-resistant than synthetic. It requires a little bit less maintenance. However, it does have that drawback of storing energy, so if it breaks on your load, it will snap back, can be dangerous, and can cause damage. So it really comes down to what you're going to be using your Jeep for. In my opinion, if you have the budget for it, a synthetic line is a nice upgrade. Like I said before, installing this winch was really easy because the barricade bumper has a built-in winch plate. You can actually install the winch on even a factory bumper or a lot of other aftermarket bumpers. However, sometimes you need to add an additional winch plate. The plate will bolt directly to the frame and the winch bolts to that plate, giving you the strength you need to be able to pull the entire weight of the vehicle with the winch. Once you have it bolted up, wiring is really easy. You just have two cables that go up to the battery for your power connection and you're done. So in the end, Barricade winches are a good budget friendly winch. And if you're going to be out on the trails every so often playing in the mud or on the rocks and there's a chance that you or a friend is going to get stuck, these are going to get you unstuck. If you're somebody who is out on the trails every single weekend doing more hard core wheeling and you expect to be doing a lot really long, hard pulls, maybe you want to spend a little bit more money and get a winch that has some additional features. The next part we added on this Jeep was a set of Barricade rubi rails. And these might look familiar to you because a similar rail comes on the Rubicons and some special addition Wranglers right out of the factory. A rail like this is designed to cover up the otherwise unfinished pinch seam. They're not designed a ton of protection. In fact, the way the mounts are designed on this rail, it's not going to provide as much protection as a factory rubi rail will. However, for our build that isn't seeing a lot of trail time, these are going to do a nice job of finishing off the look, giving us some protection against door dings in the parking lot. And they will offer some light protection if we do hit the trail every so often. These are a nice alternative to a factory rubi rail because a lot of people aren't taking off those factory rails and getting rid of them, which can make them hard to find and a little bit more expensive. These are going to be a little less expensive than finding a factory set, and they're gonna give you the same look and the same light protection. These rails are designed to install much like the factory rails do, and they're completely bolt-on so you don't have to drill the Jeep to get them installed. Like with any part that's powder-coated and has threaded studs, it's definitely helpful to run a dye over those threads to clean off any residual powder coat before you start the installation. That's going to keep you from cross-threading and stripping any nuts or bolts. So if you're like us and you don't need rocker protection for hard core off-roading, but you do want to finish off the look of the pinch seam, this is a really nice alternative to finding a more expensive set of factory takeoffs. So let me turn around the Jeep, and we'll show you the last part we added. The last part we added to this Jeep is the one that probably has the largest visual impact, and that's this Bestop Trektop NX. The first thing you notice when looking at it is it has this fastback look that a lot of you guys are after. It completely changes the profile look of the Jeep, and I think it looks really nice, especially on a four-door JK, although it is available for a two-door as well. And aside from the good looks, this Jeep used to only have a hardtop. Now that it's coming around to springtime, we wanted to more easily be able to convert to that open-air driving experience, so a soft top was a no brainer. Now Bestop certainly isn't the only one to make a fastback soft top like this, but in my opinion, they're one of the best. You get a ton of build quality and quality of materials with this top, although you do have to pay a little bit of a premium price for it. In my opinion, it's worth it. I've installed a couple Bestop soft tops on my Jeeps, and I'll install another one when it comes time to replace it. So let's talk a little bit about the difference between the Trektop NX that we installed and the Trektop. The NX has a few more features. It has removable side windows, and it has Bestop's sunrider feature up front. That allows you to very easily flip back the section of the top over the driver and the front seat passenger to again give you that open-air driving experience really easily. Those are a few things that the regular Trektop doesn't have. The Trektop is going to be less expensive than the Trektop NX, but for my money, it's worth it for the additional features. Whether you decide to go with the Trektop NX or the regular Trektop, the nice thing about these is they include all the hardware that you need to install them on a Jeep, even if it's never had a soft top on it before. Of course, the fastback tops are frameless, but there is some additional hardware and some other parts that, if you go with another manufacture, you might have to purchase separately. Bestop includes everything you need in the box to make the installation really easy. Install will take you a little bit of time, but Bestop provides really clear instructions on how to do it. It helps to be detail-oriented and take you time going step-by-step to ensure the first time it rains your top isn't going to leak. So like we said in the beginning, this Jeep has the lift and the 33-inch tires, but they are more for the look and less about hitting the trails. And the nice thing about doing a build that's a little bit more aesthetically geared than functionally geared is that we can save a little bit of money on mods like winch and rubi rails. If we were buying those parts to be used really hard on a trail every weekend, we'd have to spend a little bit more money to get something that's built really solidly. In this case, we can save a little bit of money, get a little bit of function, but get the look that we are after. We really wanted to transform this Jeep into something that was a lot more rugged, and tough, and had that off road look. One area that we did spend a little bit more money was with this Trektop. It is a premium top and it does have a little bit of a higher price tag, but again, for my money, it's completely worth it for the build quality and for the additional features. So for more cool Jeep content and additional Jeep builds, make sure you check out ExtremeTerrain.com. But for now, I'm Ryan, thanks for watching.

Durable Construction. Give your Wrangler an instant makeover with the Bestop Trektop NX. Made from tough, multi-ply, and premium-grade fabric, this soft top not only offers durability, but also reduces outside noise for a comfortable ride. It provides mildew resistance and also includes UV inhibitors to prevent fading.

Reliable Performance. The Bestop Trektop NX for Jeep Wrangler does not need traditional bows or frames for installation. Its top arch bar system keeps the soft top in place, while offering superior protection from snow and heavy rain. The tailgate bar provides quick and easy access to the rear cargo area without opening the rear window. This 4-door Jeep Wrangler Trektop features high-quality, polymer door surrounds and removable, tinted windows. You can remove the windows for safari bikini style driving. With a built-in sunroof, it allows you to enjoy open air driving too.

Fitment. This Jeep Wrangler Trektop fits most factory full steel doors and Bestop replacement door kits. It is suitable for 2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK (4-Door). This soft top includes the soft top bow assembly necessary for installation

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?

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.

TJinaJK

  • 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.

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..

EricS

  • 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.

windows How difficult is it to remove the windows and to put them back on? Approximately how long would this process take?

Sara

  • The process is very simple and easy. It would likely take less than 5 minutes to remove the panels and another 5 minutes to put them back in. This of course is dependent on the temperature outside as well as user height, so time frames will vary per person.

    Nothing but AWESOME!!!

    I've been wanting this top since I bought my Jeep in April 2013. I was absolutely impressed with the quality of the materials used to produce this top. They definitely didn't cut corners. Everyone that sees my Jeep with this top loves it. It's easy to install. I did it in a couple of hours by myself. Converting it to a bikini top is even easier. Plus you have the option of the sun rider open top. I live in southern Louisiana where it rains constantly and this top hasn't leaked once. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone looking for an alternative to a factory hard or soft top.

    Summers here so I put the hardtop in storage and gig this product for my 2014 4 door Rubicon. It was easily installed over the course of about four beers on a hot summer day in Tennessee. I've had no issues out if it so far. I love the look. For awhile I left off the rear and side panels and removed the doors, leaving just the top. This gave the rig a cool safari look and was fun for off-roading. With all the panels installed and the doors back on it keeps AC in while allowing for quicker easier one man removal if the weathers just too nice. Very impressed by the quality, I actually bought another Bestop camper shell for my pickup. Thanks!

    A snug fitting top that looks great.

    Top is very well made and comes with all necessary mounting hardware. Easy to install and provides for a very snug fit with no flapping in the wind. Sung fit makes it somewhat more difficult to install in cool weather, making it hard to get all zippers fully closed, but I expect a good hot day in the sun will cure that. Sides zip off, as does rear panel giving you a nice bimini top option.

    Its just ok

    Being a new jeep owner I was a little impulsive on this purchase. Will probably sell and purchase a full size soft top. This one when folded back thumps when wind catches it on the highway. Was later told by manufacturer that not really intended for highway driving can try strapping down the top with some sort of fasteners. Sorry just not a fan of this top. Will be changing to a different style soon.

    The best soft top on the market

    Great top, high quality and easy to install/remove. I recommend letting the back windows sit in the sun for several hours and to put rope on the zippers- this makes it much easier to install, otherwise it will be a tight fit. I also recommend not removing any of the parts for a week, which gives the top ample time to stretch out.

    This top is great I have all the options of a soft top without having to pay the few extra bucks of having to buy a full gram for the soft top. The materials are great quality and have not had any issues with buffering or the top flapping. Highly reccomend for all hard top owners In the summer.

    Easy install, looks awesome!

    I needed a soft top for my 2016 JKU, but I didn't want a standard squared-off OEM-style top. This fit the bill perfectly! The fit is very tight to begin with; definitely want to install this on a warm day and let the windows and top fabric sit out in the sun (no joke, don't even try if it's less than about 75F and sunny). Once on, it looks amazing and really isn't any noisier (to me) than our OEM hard top. Recently drove from Corvallis, OR to Grants Pass, OR in the middle of a torrential downpour (could barely see the road). Top kept us nice and dry, not a single leak or water droplet anywhere inside. A lot of people ask about how easy it is to remove completely. The answer is: simple. I roll this up and remove it by myself in less than five minutes, so I'm down to being completely topless very easily. Rolls up smaller than an OEM top and sits low on the rear deck. The windows roll up easily once you take out the plastic insert, too. All in all, this top is absolutely worth every penny of it. I love it, my wife loves it, and all my friends are envious of it's HMMWV-type look. :)

    Good Fit, Good Features

    As others have said, this was a very good replacement for the stock soft top on my '12 JKU. I'm not particularly handy and I put it on in less than three hours. The instructions are fine, but there are a few great videos in YouTube that walk you through the process. It is pretty well engineered and fits tightly but securely, and I haven't found a leak yet. I chose the NX for the fold down front, which works very well. My only minor issue is the center bar, which I feel should sit in front of the overhead "sportsbar" but sits barely on top. Like I said, not a big deal. Other than that it's no louder than my old soft top and looks a lot nicer.
