Review & Installation Video

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

      5 Top Rated Questions

      What is the difference between this top and the Bestop TrekTop NX Glide Soft Top - Black Twill?

      • The Bestop Trektop NX Soft Top does not feature a full frame so it will not fold down like the factory soft top, if you wanted the top down it would need to be completely removed and stored. The the Bestop TrekTop NX Glide Soft Top features a frame and will fold down like the factory soft top.

      The description says the windows are 40 "millimeters" thick!!!!! Are they ballistic windows?

      • The website states, "40-Mil", not millimeter. A mil is a measurement that equals one-thousandth of an inch, so the 40 mil rating means they are 0.04 inches thick. The most common size in the thickness rating for a standard piece of paper is 9 mil which would be 0.009 inches.

          This top is amazing and exactly what I needed. At first it is a little tight, but as you take things off and put them back on, it gets better. Best to reinstall back window in the sun for easy re-installation.

          Trektop nx

          So far this soft top is awesome, installation was pretty straight forward. Material is very nice and well made. This top is so much quieter than my old one even with the sunrider feature open, my only complaint is that the rear window came with a couple small dents in it, may have to contact bestop to recieve a replacement. Overall i am very happy with this top and cannot wait to put it to good use

          Wind noise

          Two stars only for quality materials. This is the second trek top that I have owned. Both have had extreme wind noise where the header fits the windshield. You can't experience the issue until it's installed, but once installed you can't return the top. Bestop asks for pictures and replies with a claim number. I've waited a week with no further response. It would be an incredible top if the issue with the header was resolved. Google the trektop to see how common this issue is before buying. The factory jku soft top is a better choice if you value your hearing.

          Great Top! Great value!

          This is a great top. Love the quality! it took a while to post because I wanted to make sure it held up under all conditions. Installation temperature is critical. At least 70 degrees. 80 is ideal. Sunshine also a large plus. Follow instructions. Lay the top out in the sun, and installation is easier. I have no complaints with water leakage. I live in Florida and we get some pretty heavy duty thunderstorms. Wind noise was a little louder than I liked, until I adjusted the flip top opening . IU really like the quality. It looks great. And the windows almost look like glass and are easy to see out of. I highly recommend this top. You can buy a cheaper top, and i have , but you do get what you pay for. Installation time took a little over two hours. It would have taken less had the weather been warmer. DO NOT FORCE STRETCHING THE TOP. Patience is the key. As i was attaching the rear section, i turned it around to face the sun. That helped greatly.

          Great top once installed

          Great top but it initially fits extremely tight. I partially installed the top but had to wait a few days, to allow top to expand enough, to where I could completely close the zippers and front latches. The initial install should definitely be completed on a HOT summer day, not a 70 degree spring afternoon. It is now a few weeks after install and the top's fit is now perfect. Looks awesome and the twill is definitely worth the extra money.

          Great looking!

          I does look great and was not that hard to install. I don't like the fit around the door frames. There doesn't seem to be enough tension to hold the seems in tight. This maybe due to the fact that I'm installing in the winter, but had to take it to a shop to fix.

          I love this top so much and looks great too. The price for it was a little too expensive but I am still happy with the purchase. If you are trying to put this top on like I did, in the cold, its not going to happen. You HAVE to put it on in a really hot garage or a really hot and sunny day.

          Awesome top

          My dad and I installed this together. We planned for two hours on a warm sunny day and laid the top out in the sun for an easier time zipping it up. I'm pretty sure we were fully installed and zipped in under two hours. We used an install video we found on youtube to help us and just followed along with it. The final zipping up of the back panels took a little finessing but the hot sun was a huge help. I love this top its super easy to open and close. even the back zipper entry is really easy now that it's been installed and relaxed a bit. Worth every penny.

          If you're an idiot like me, you tried to install this thing in cold weather. It is possible to get it hooked up in cold weather, but it will take some patience. Once all the parts are assembled, just zip the zippers a little bit, and then turn the Jeep's heater on. Every so often, zip little by little, and it will eventually zip all the way. But overall, it's a solid top. Wind noise is minimal. I am stoked with my purchase.

          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.

          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.
