    There is a big difference between the standard and premium soft tops. The premium top is thicker & tighter than the standard, its also quieter. The material looks better and there is even a shock assist for opening. Definitely worth the extra money.

    Thank you @Hydroboy35th I appreciate it. I did find a dealer that has the premium soft top and the standard this morning to compare and agree with you. I am glad I didn't go with my original gut. Ive been wanting a bikini/safari top to use when its not hard top weather to protect from pop up rain showers... nobody has made them that are decent (the mopar will leak like hell)… I have had one on order from Northridge (the Rampage product) since June 2018 so I am leaning towards just buying this top so I am protected in spring/fall time period.

    I actually prefer the black diamond to the twill. The twill, imo, is something for a sports car.

    Oh cool, Bestop released the trektop for the new Wrangler! Comes to thread. No price. Oh ok, goes to website. Same shit. Goes to Preorder, chooses model. Oh not available for 2 door. Why the process and wasted time asking? Sounds like its a soft top for the all new Wrangler JL UNLIMITED. Reads 4 pages of thread to find price and timing of 2 door. No price. Goes back to bestop website, chooses 4 door for an idea of price,
    Sorry. We couldn't find the page you are looking for.
    If you need assistance don't hesitate to contact us or use the Need Help? button below.

    Damn. Yes I could hunt this down or look at a JK for an idea but this is just a ridiculous when the price should have just been listed. I am dropping this post in an effort to help future post\marketing not become a roller-coaster of fail. ;)

    You could just go to any number of off-road vendors and get the price for both 2dr and 4dr.

    100% correct and I mentioned this but should I or anyone else have too when this is directly from the vendor? If a job is worth doing, its worth doing right... don't touch it twice if you only have to touch it once... I could go on with these simple life lessons we learn as children and this is why I posted this here. The alternative was a simple, get your shit together Bestop and not waste peoples time tracking down the fundamental information required to make a buying decision in a thread dedicated to this product. Its just lazy. Maybe its just a generation thing. My dad would have smacked my ass had I put something together as half assed as this when I was 30 years younger. No disrespect intended to anyone, if it didn't get said how will anyone improve? Just a little tough love is all. :fist bump:

    Maybe it’s your web browser. I had no problem going to their site and ordering it, and it seems you ran into a problem at every turn.

    There's a huge difference in between the black diamond and twill (to the guy asking).

    Sorry it took so long for photos-- it's been busy and rainy around here. I had a rattle when getting around 70mph, but I found a torx bolt I didn't tighten all the way, so I'd bet that was the problem. Upon further evaluation, the wind noise seems more pronounced than the factory premium soft top, but I sold that last summer, so I may just not remember correctly. It's not loud, by any means, but what you'd expect from running a soft top.

    ParthianShot, thanks for your pics!

    I think you had said you were using a hardtop before this? If so, did you happen to notice the height difference with the Trektop and your hardtop?

    Also, I’m assuming you got the twill version of the Trektop, right?

    Thanks again for your help. Much appreciated.
