The Bestop Trektop NX in black twill is for the '07 to '17 JK owners with an existing hard top. This is for the owners that are looking for one of the highest-quality frameless soft tops that's designed to provide a more comfortable driving experience. This is a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It is a very lengthy install, but it is a piece of cake.
When it comes to the well thought-out construction, it really doesn't get any better than this. This soft top is made with three layers of 30-ounce twill material. The material is extremely dense, provides solid insulation, and really helps with noise while driving, even better than the factory hard top and the Black Diamond. I think that we can all agree that the factory top insulation and noise is pretty mediocre. This twill material will create a comfortable cab environment, and will cool down faster in the summer months and heat up faster in the winter.
This also comes with an easy flip-open Sunrider canopy, and can be turned into a bikini top with the removal of windows using the YKK scoop zippers. It does not fold back like the factory soft top would, but if you wanted to keep that option with the fastback look, you can always check out the Bestop NX Glide.
The windows are the thickest windows offered on a soft top right now, coming in at 40 millimeters. And the tint at 31% is great at reducing glare, as well as assisting in the insulation. This soft top also comes with UV components that really help keep that deep black fabric from fading. And you're also getting all the hardware needed for switching straight from your hard top right over to this soft top.
The word "luxury" is not commonly used in the Jeep community, but this top is just that. This is the same fabric as convertible tops on luxury cars, and because of that, the price is running you at around $1,300, making it one of the highest-priced frameless options that we offer right now. If this is a little out of your budget, you can definitely check out the other Bestop Trektop NX, which is the Black Diamond material. For all of the features, for the tinted windows, and the quality of this material, and the Sunrider feature, I would definitely say that this is well worth the price.
Like I mentioned before, this install is super simple, but it is pretty lengthy, so I would give yourself about two hours, and having another set of hands would definitely be a big help. Tool-wise, you'll need some basic hand tools, including a ratchet, a 13-millimeter socket, and a Phillips-head screwdriver.
First, we're gonna completely remove the hard top, and next, we're gonna install all of the hardware for the soft top, starting with the cable brackets. Put the cable brackets on the front bolt of the rear crossbar, and then the rear bow bracket on the bolt behind where we installed the cable brackets. Next, install the rear door surrounds, connecting the top with the M8 by 75-millimeter knob, and the bottom to the body of the Jeep. Then, install the front door surrounds with the same style knob, as well as the Sunrider bracket with the shorter M8 by 30-millimeter knob in the front of the soundbar. Next, put the front arch over the driver and the passenger seat, followed by the rear arch over the back seats, and install the tailgate bar mounts on each side of the tailgate.
Now for the actual top, attach the side bows to the header assembly, and install the foam strips and seals. You're then gonna mount the header assembly to the Sunrider bracket, and install the middle bow and bow clip. Then, flip open the Sunrider and install the rear bow, while also securing the cable spring. After that, you can close the Sunrider and secure the header assembly latch. Lastly, put in all the rear windows using the zippers, and install and secure the tailgate bar to the mounts. And all these detailed instructions will be included in the box.
So if you're looking for a quality upgrade to your JKU, this Bestop Trektop NX in black twill is gonna be a great option for you and your JK. You can find this, and everything Wrangler, right here at extremeterrain.com.
