I really like my Supertop NX to be honest. I mostly like the fact that the hardware appears to be stock, unlike the round tube frame and Velcro the other Bestop's have. I do REALLY wish I had the Sunrider option though... But I could not get the Sunrider with tinted windows in spice. As for the NX top, I can put it fully up in just 5 minutes (yes, I have timed myself at work when it started to rain on the way in once and just had 7 minutes before 8am! What I love is how well the soft doors fit the frame, not only do they sit recessed into the frame and not on the outside of the top, I have no wind flapping at speeds as high as 75-80 with everything closed up AND the heater outside vent open! It takes a few minutes more to work with all the snaps along the top of the doors, but I will take that over Velcro that has started to wear and not hold as well. The top folds back nice and has some elastic that wraps over the frame and hooks into the belt rail to keep it from rattling (although, it's not enough to stop all the rattles on bumpy roads) I have not had water puddle up on the top yet, so it sheds rain very nice and does not leak at all!

Two downsides... you MUST have half doors and the full doors will not work, and you must drill holes in the windshield frame along the sides of the frame. It's fine with the soft top, but I put the hard top on in the winter and the frame that attaches to the windshield frame must be removed, leaving the drilled holes visible. But, it's only in the winter and it gives you a good time to make sure the holes don't start to rust!
