    2014 SEMA Bestop Yellow Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited

    For the 2014 SEMA Show, Bestop released their all new TrekTop Pro - a fastback top with all the fun that a soft top offers, options that a bikini/safari top provide and all the conveniences of a hard top as well. This top is made out of 30 oz. twill fabric for a nice quite ride, is built with a sunrider so that you can flip open the front like a sun roof, has a glass rear window complete with defrosters and optional rear wiper and comes with sliding glass side windows with screens. Maybe the best part of this top is that even though it's a soft top, there are absolutely NO ZIPPERS on it. In other words, it's a lot easier to install and remove the rear panels for a bikini top ride. Here's what it looks like on a Jeep JK 4-door Unlimited.

    Is the rear shell plastic or fiberglass? It looks like an injection molded plastic like the factory Jeep door surrounds with a honeycomb structure for strength.

    I am going to seriously look into this. I bought my Jeep with the hardtop only. Decided it was a pain for those spring/fall months for quick topless mode. Got a soft top which I love, expect for the rear zip window (domestic crap like groceries, etc). I could sell both and get this. I will be waiting for first hand experience though.

    The side panels are still fabric and they wrap around a plastic sub-structure that goes from the roll bar to the corner of your tub. The rear glass is mounted to hinges on a cross bar.

    We did get a demonstration on the 2-door and you can see some of the pics there. If we have time, I will try to get a video demonstration.

    Man I have to say I am impressed with it now after seeing these photos. Granted the price point has an ouch factor to it what a great concept. I have always had a soft top but at times would love a hard top. Well this just makes both worlds into 1 for me. At the very least no one is going to cut your side windows and the no zipper aspect is awesome. It also does not look like it cuts out the rear storage space like the trektop does or is that just me looking at these pictures wrong?

    Thats actually a pretty sweet top and a great option for those who dont have a hard top. Maybe a good winter option.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
