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.

    Permanent top, not for variable climate areas

    I'm sure the top is good in the right conditions but just to give whomever is thinking purchasing this top, I have a few comments. I have a hard top but wanted a soft top for the summer. It was my fault for not calling and/or picking the wrong top but one, this is a permanent top. I had to cut the padding and remove and replace bolts to get the hardware for this top in place. So taking it off in the fall and putting it back up next year would be a good 2-3 hour pain. And two, the back and side windows are VERY difficult to install. I was told to wait for 90 degree weather but living in Michigan where it could be 90 then 60 with rain in the forecast every other day, I needed to be able to put the windows on quickly. After 30 minutes just this morning, I gave up. Unfortunately I cannot return the top. Just know what you want. Very sharp when installed however.

    Great looking top

    Big improvement over factory soft top in looks and performance. All the marketing info is correct. Great quality materials and a friendly design. Easy top to flip back for open air or turn it into a bikini by taking the back 1/4s and rear window off. Not easy to take the top completely off but with the top flipped back and the rear windows and 1/4s off you'd never know there was a top on when you're driving. The 1/4s have some rigid plastic structural supports at the corners so they don't store easily. I have some small leaks at the drivers side A pillar and where the rear window zippers to the top. Bestop was responsive and sent some additional seals to address the A pillar issue. Overall, I'm thrilled with the top. No rattles, reasonably quiet, super good looks but, for the money, it should be.

    Review from Bestop Trektop NX - Black Twill (07-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door)

    Quiet ride compared to a lot of Jeeps that I have ridden in.and it looks really good !

    I had a little bit of a hard time putting it on by myself, but I did it. Once I got the door frame on It was not really not too bad, just have to take your time and make sure you let the sun get your top warm. too finish fasten everything down, took a break and turned the defroster on ,shut the doors and let whole top warm up and then finished tuck everything in and that was a little tough but it was worth it. top looked really good and tight.

    Review from Bestop Trektop NX - Black Twill (07-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door)

    Wow. Quiet! JK looked like a new Jeep!!

    I expected a difference. I just didn't think it would be so dramatic. This top is quiet! Cars passing weren't annoying and the stereo even sounded better. It will take a few warm days for the top to relax a bit but I knew that going in. What I didn't expect was how sharp the top would look and how it would change the enjoyment of driving. I never really knew how horribly loud the stock top was. If you are getting a soft top and don't get the Twill you are making a mistake. The fabric is rich, thick, black!, And so quiet. Thanks Bestop for this top.

    Easy install

    The install was simple. Although the written directions that came with the top were useless there is a great video on YouTube that is so detailed I followed it all the way thru pausing as needed. The looks of the top are great the cloth is gorgeous. This was the best soft top I could buy for use in the summer. It's too nice in my opinion to use year round and I live outside Chicago so when winter hits the hard top will go back on. 2 hour install.

    Does what I need, but fit's been a bit of an issue

    Overall, I'm happy with this top. The frame installed fairly easily and consistent with instructions - less than 2 hrs. The fit for the top is a little too tight though. Rail corners (down the fastback bars) have tension inserts in them, presumably to ensure a tight fit. Well, they do that to the point of being too tight. I'm flat-out unable to zip both zippers down the back window at the same time. If I remove the inserts, though, I get a nice tight fit that has stood up to 75 mph driving with no vibration and heavy thunderstorm rain with no leaks. Once I figured that part out, I was golden. This top has become a regular part of my summertime configuration.

    Great Top

    This is the best/tightest possible fit for a soft top. The installation while watching Bestop's video was very easy, however, it did take about 3 hours. It would have been a lot easier if i had installed it on the perfect 75 and sunny day they recommend... It was only about 50 and cloudy so once i got each window zipper started, I started up my jeep and let the heat run on high for about an hour, after that it was much easier. No complaints other than i pulled hard on the back window and about a half inch of stiching came out of the plastic material. That was only on the original install which was probably my fault and it hasnt gotten any bigger since, and I have removed them multpile times since.
