Bestops new "bowless" fastback top. The Trektop NX features removable windows, factory style-door surrounds, Sunrider sunroof features, and factory-style header bar. The Trektop NX features our Top Arch support. Designed specifically to minimize fabric flapping, especially at higher speeds, and avoid puddles forming in the center of your soft top after a hard rain storm. The Top Arch spans across the Jeep right above the head of both driver and passenger. The Trektop NX takes away the top bows and frames, and uses the Wrangler sport bars to give it shape and support. This gives the top a fastback or "raceback" look that's stylish, and different than factory soft tops or Supertops. With side and rear windows removed, the Trektop NX functions as a Safari Bikini Top. Includes everything necessary for installation - fabric, tinted side and rear windows, factory-style door surrounds, tailgate bar. Our best multi-layer premium fabric maintains its shape in all temperatures, is mildew-resistant, contains UV inhibitors. Tailgate bar allows you to open tailgate without opening the rear window for trouble free access. Top Arch bar spans above the seating area to keep top tight, reduce flapping, and minimize puddling. Bestops exclusive new polymer Door Surrounds, similar to the OE style door surrounds found on TJs and JKs. Choose the optional door style you want - use your existing full steel doors, or use any Bestop door kit (sold separately) including 2-Piece Doors, Upper Fabric Doors, Element Doors or Lower Fabric Half doors.
Ok I've had this top about 8 months now n I love it. Noisy at first. Googled bout wind top noise n learn simple fix. While driving run a/c or heat on fresh in take not recirculate and Bam top flapping noise is gone. Less of course it's extremely windy out n nothing stops that. I would buy this again. I do recommend this top.

Looks great on ny TJ. The sunrider feature lets me and the girlfriend enjoy the sun while the kids in the back are out of it. Strongly suggest 2 or 3 guys to install side windows. They are a stretch. The thicker fabric is much quieter on interstate than factory top was. I love this top!!

Nice but difficult to install
The looks and function are very nice, but you don't want to try to install this on a cool/cloudy day. The material must be hot and pliable to install easily. Follow the instructions and only zip the zippers 2-3" before hooking any of the belt rails at the bottom. Then fold back the sun rider before hooking the rear window into the tailgate and hooking the belt rails on. You then may have to use a ratcheting strap to pull the top forward to the front window to latch the sun rider back to the top header of the front window. Leave it on for a few days to let it stretch into position.
One drawback is that the side windows cannot be rolled - the belt rail hooks and rear plastic curved support require that it lay flat when not installed.

Fantastic Jeep Soft Top - Trektop NX
I installed the Trektop NX by myself in a little over an hour. It was a hot day so the installation went easier since the fabric heated up and was thus more flexible/stretchy. I was surprised at how well the top fit. I was also very pleased with the noise level (the top fits very tight thus there is very little flapping/rustling while driving.

best investment in awhile
Lets just say that this top is fantastic. I love the easy open top on the cool days, and without the windows in the safari top does not flop around like my old top. great investment, I love it

Love This Top
This top was very easy to install. It fits tight and looks very good. I love the look and performance so far. I have been through heavy rain with no issues.
By Red Rubicon FL from Tampa, FL
I would by this product again.
Make sure it is a warm day and the sun is on the top. If not it is very difficult to stretch the fabric.

A great top
Wow, tough crowd here. I love this top. Yes, it's noisy - it's a soft top on a Jeep! Compared to a soft top requiring a frame, this one is more quiet simply because it fits tight with less wind resistance. You can roll down the windows without the top flapping. The front flips back easily for a little extra sun. The sides and back zip off, letting you use it as a bikini top. I've had mine for a year and it still looks new. I see the tight fit as a benefit. If you use your head and follow the directions, it's really not that hard to put on.

Not as durable as they used to be...
You must park in the sun on a warm day to get the top installed properly. A cold top will never go on. That said, even with a nice warm sunny day, I still managed to rip one of the webbed tabs off trying to get it on. And four months into using it, one of the pins that holds side bow together popped off. Bestop insists that you go through the warranty process instead of just mailing the replacement part, which (so far) involves sitting on hold for 2+ hours.
This is my second Bestop soft-top, and my third one will be with a new manufacturer.

I've had the top installed for a week now. It looks good, but I'm hoping it will fit better (especially rear corners of the top) once the fabric stretches out. The large windows allow good visibilty. Took far longer to install than anticipated. Not complex, just several steps and getting it to fit well. Considerable wind noise seems to be coming from the passenger side above the windshield. Removal of the rear window requires partial/full removal of one of the quarter windows. I'll have to wait and see if the 3 star rating goes up or down as it sees more daily use.
Can I get it without tinted windows. Ive been looking for without tinted windows and cant find?:

I have the smittybuilt roll bar kit, with the reinforcement between the town bars in the rear. Will this interfere with the top fitment?
none from on
Yes, the Bestop Trektop NX in Black Diamond BST56820-35 will fit with the Smittybilt Roll Cage. Thank you.
If my jeep only has hard top never had a soft top does this top come with every thing needed to install for a 1997 jeep Wrangler? Door surroundings? Tailgate bar and Retainers? Or Windshield Header? Thank you very much for you time and help?
