So tempting....

Would you happen to know how much lower the Trektop is at it's highest point that the factory softop? The bow's in my softop are making me run my coilovers a little lower than I would like to fit in my garage. I have considered swapping tops with my wife who has a hardtop. She really wants my factory Premium softop, but I just can't give up the ease of going topless. The bowes in my softop seem to sit 2-3" taller than the highest point on her hardtop.

Thanks in advnace, love your products. All my JK's had some version of the Trektop!

Thanks

Ditto on TTEChris' question.

I have height concerns as well and would be interested to know how much lower the height drops for the Trektop (both twill and non-twill versions) when compared with the factory premium soft top. Please also let us know if there is a difference in height between the twill and non-twill versions when installed (assuming that the twill version will likely have more material which may add padding to the actual height).

Thanks!

This looks intriguing. Does the top retract completely? Or does it just fold back into the sunrider position?

It just folds back in the sun rider position. Imo that is better because you can’t see the top at all if you are sitting in the front seats.

Question for anyone who had one on a JK or Cassie. I have a hardtop now but would like to run something different in the spring and summer - the Trektop is a great alternative to the factory soft top. My question is, can I easily uninstall the Trektop for the fall and winter or once the Trektop is installed, is it more of a permanent top? Basically, can someone interchange a hard top and the Trektop as seasons change?

I had this top for my 2012 JK 2 door and I loved it. I will definitely be buying one in the spring for my 2018 JLU. What I liked most about it is, you don't have anything in your way in the tailgate when the top is down/off, unlike the factory tops do, and it's so easy to remove and install. sometimes it's nice to have that top over the rear passenger seats for shade but other times it would be nice if it was completely off. I'm hoping they made an option to remove it completely much easier then the previous one

I ran a hardtop in the winter on my JK and then installed the Trektop in the spring. It only takes about 20 - 30 minutes to completely remove the soft top and replace it with the hard top.

Hey Cassie ,
Happy New Year !!!!!
Any idea when the Cracked Red Pepper top will be available?
I'm interested in the cracked red pepper as well, hoping to see some more pics or a video of it. I don't know if I will like that color accent with the firecracker red.
