Trektop by Bestop. Anyone have one?

I'm looking to replace my top. I look into the rampage top and just read a thread on it. The noise isnt a big deal for me, the lump in the middle isnt a big deal for me either. What I would like to know is if anyone has or knows someone that has the Trektop by Bestop? Was wondering if it would be a good choice to spend the extra money and get a better top or if it makes the same kinda noise as the rampage one. This is the part number from 4wd.com BST56801.

Just a note if you don't know, there is a new Trektp NX comming out very soon. All three windows now come out (though they do not stow like the rampage) and it has a sunrider folding fromt.

Exactly.

The sunrider feature is pretty cool, but IMO still isn't a true frameless top because it has all the front hardware for the sunrider feature. It looks like it would take a while to remove the top completely, whereas I can completely pull my Rampage off in under 10 minutes. The stow bag is by far the BEST feature Rampage top has. The bag is also removable for safe long term storage.

That said, if I had the extra money would probably go with the Trektop. I love my Rampage top, but Bestop has a lot more resources and the Trektop looks like it fits a bit better and the Sunrider feature is pretty enticing.

I have a feeling Geoff will be chiming in with some info, which I would like to hear.

I was considering a Rampage top but I see the NX will be using a factory header bar permantly affixed to the top.
I like that feature!
