Hello, last year I received the first replacement rear seal and a new window because it was sagging and flapping. Today I had to drive 3 hours all highway with it once again flapping out of control, it almost felt like it was going to rip itself off. Since I'm at a year of ownership am I pretty much out of luck?
Our Twill tops have a limited lifetime warranty and our Black Diamond tops have a 5 year warranty. Just give our Customer Service team a buzz :)

I received a replacement top and so far a vast improvement over the original. I’m very pleased with the product and service from the BT team.

I'm about to pull the trigger on this top. I'm wondering if I order a new top is it a 50/50 chance that I could receive old stock vs new stock from a Bestop vender? Did Bestop recall their old stock once they new there was a problem?

Another question, I've seen videos that show no zippers on the trektop and other videos that have zippers. Do the new ones not have zippers?

Bestop, can you chime in and answer my questions?

Thanks!

Hey guys,
Sorry for the slow reply, I'm actually on vacation this week and only checking in occasionally. During this Covid pandemic nearly everyone including ourselves has been sold out of the Trektop Ultras for JL. We're keeping up with demand but not by a lot. What this means is that there is no risk of anyone getting "old stock". I hope this helps alleviate any concern.

Is it still in the works and is there a timeframe? I'd love the trektop that folds down for the 2 door

Ah, that helps me understand better. We've had the Trektop Ultra available since about April now, but no current plans or timeline for a 2 door version.

**Update, I was able to get them to clip in, it was the cold weather as I thought. We'll see if the window keeps flapping now at highway speed**

I bought one of these in twill for my JLU last week. Install was pretty easy but I can't get the rear window plastic tabs tucked in. Also I get the flapping over 60mph. Is it because of the winter here in NJ or did I do something wrong during install. I can't get them to even start folding up into the rail.
