Jeep looks nice. What type of side rails do you have?

I received my trektop a little over month ago and it came with the new bar you show here. Like you mine won't stay attached, looking at the way its attached I don't see how it ever would. I have requested a new tailgate bar from them but its taking a very long time to get one too me. I think going on 4 weeks, only downside is every time it rains I get some water in the back.

We installed a Trektop 2 weeks ago and are also experiencing a flapping rear window & gap across the top of the tailgate. Enjoying the ease of the sunrider part of the top but the constant flap of the rear window is making me regret the purchase. Glad to hear Bestop is trying to fix the issue for others though.

Already have, that is what I meant by 4 weeks. You guys still don't have a replacement part available to ship me according to Marc in your customer service department.

What are y’all using for window storage bags? A rep at @BestopTeam says the Trektop bag won’t work with the JL Trektop.

So I was experiencing mild flapping as well then realized I didn't Velcro the strip across the rear interior bar and I didn't use the clips at the top rear corners on the quarter panels. When I fixed both of those issues the flapping went away.

I am so pleased that Bestop improved on every aspect of the JK Trektop. Thank you for a fantastic product.

The order # email I received said tailgate bar should arrive in 4-5 business days. As of today I had not heard anymore and it hasn't arrived (9th business day) so I called for an update. I was told the tailgate bars just came in and it should ship later today.

Love my top but after 5 weeks it’s flapping and same tailgate issue as the rest of you have. For the price this should not be happening.

Update:

After the "updated" replacement rear window they sent continued to flap in the wind loudly, I contacted them and they said they were actually going to a meeting same day and would discuss the flapping issue and get back to me with a response. That was a couple of weeks ago and I still haven't gotten a response.

-Rear window flaps like a flag
-Rear tailgate bar doesn't seal well
-Sunrider interferes with XM radio reception when opened up
-Rear window tabs are virtually impossible to un-tuck from the tub slot because of the hybrid sliding rail/zipper system

Aside from those issues which persist, the top is otherwise working well and keeps rain out great. Hopefully I'll hear something from Bestop soon. Thankfully I've been testing this top for them since winter because if I had spent $1,300 on this I would be kind of upset. It's a good product, they just should have let us test it FIRST before they released it to market. That was their only mistake.
