Build of my JKU

Caught the Bug
I'm not sure if you got a chance to see the one I had down in Sand Hollow before I yanked it off. It was the Bestop Trektop Glide. I thought that I would be flipping it all of the way down like a normal soft top a lot, but I was totally wrong. The back was a pain to get in to when it was a little colder and I really never liked the way it looked so far above the roll bar. I ended up selling it to a buddy up here near me and got the same Rugged Ridge bowless one that Eddie has on Moby. It was less than half the price of the Bostop, every bit as quiet and since it has zippers its easier to in the back. You'll need one of the summer top headers, door surrounds and a tailgate bar (if you don't have a tailgate bar, I have an extra I'll send you for a beer next time we are on the trail together).
Just checked and the top is available on the WAL Amazon store page for $418. Sorry for the long post.

I am going back a fourth of the NX non glide and Rugged ridge. Does the RR come in twill? I was out with Don last week and am sold on the twill.

I just took off a best top nx with the flip back front shipping would probably suck but I’m going to sell it

Sold the hardtop and ordered the Bestop Trecktop NX twill. So now I have a almost brand new Bestop bikini top and header for sale if someone is interested.

Thanks for the offer Jer. This will come in handy for the next downpour I get caught in (y)
They are handy for that for sure.

That's one reason why my box in back is the size it is, to leave room for mine between the box and the front seats. If mine is not on, it is with me just in case.

New Bestop showed up and I'm super happy with it. The stupid Hardrock cage of course made it difficult and slight modifications needed to made to fit.

With the new softtop I decided to change up my desk and secure my rear seats from folding down.

I raised the deck and made it fit so you cant get your hands in the back. Also, took some tabs I had laying around and welded to the seat and use a pieces of angel iron for garage doors and made a bracket that stops the rear seats from folding down.

Used the raptor bedliner for the deck and wasn't fully dry yet.
