Review & Installation Video

Review & Install 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.

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

    Great choice!

    This top looks great, rides tight and quiet, and the sunrider feature is awesome! I put the top on by myself in a little over an hour with no problems at all. The instructions were clear and included every tip and trick. If everything was engineered this intelligently, life would be much less frustrating.

    WOW!!

    Love this top!! Have a hard top and was looking to install a soft top for the warmer months. Didnt want to spend $$ on a soft top where i would need to buy the kit to install a soft top. After research i went with this bestop trektop. Glad i did! It gives my jeep a totally diffrent look. Took about 2 1/2 hours to install solo. Definatley reccomend leaving it out in the sun, i did for about 2 hours. Had no problem at all zipping it up. Had some heavy rain and no leaks at all. Would definatley reccomend!!

    A great top for a great price

    I installed the top last weekend and it was a great purchase. Like everybody states, lay it out in the sun for a while before you install it. It was easy to install. Having had older YJ's and TJ's it is very quiet inside compared to those. It is definitely a good buy.

    Great Top and easy to install

    Great top and somewhat easy to install, just take your time. It’s much easier with two people just because of how cumbersome the top can be for one. Can be done in a garage with nothing but regular tools, nothing special. Top will be tight and must be loosened up before you zip it all the way down, unless you install someplace warm. It has been 6 months since the install and the top has been through a nasty winter with zero issues. I would recommend this top again and again.

    Looks great!

    The top looks amazing on my Jeep (4-door JK). The sunroof option was my main requirement for a trek top, and this one does not disappoint. It's really easy to open everything up, but I have 2 (small) complaints that make it 4 stars instead of 5. 1 is that there's really no way to put velcro straps or anything on the rear window to just roll it up when it's open. The other is that it takes longer than my stock soft top to close everything back up. I'm sure as it gets stretched more, and with more practice, it'll get easier/faster, but for now it takes a few min to get everything all zipped up properly. I will say that you really need to make sure the top sits in the sun for a little bit before installing. I didn't do that, and it was suuuuuuper tight putting it on for the first time.
