 There are no zippers in this system! Zippers have been the traditional catch point for dirt and a continual wear item. The Trektop™ Pro eliminates that issue. The two vehicles on display at the 2014 SEMA Show included a Jeep® JK Wrangler 2-door with the Trektop™ Pro soft top plus a long list of other Bestop® accessories.

Bill Haberkamp, Product Manager at Bestop®, provides an in-depth tour of the new Trektop™ Pro and shares the reasons and engineering behind this sweeping breakthrough in soft top technology. The glass rear side and tailgate windows have all the benefits found in OEM hardtops with the option of removing these sections for the “open air experience”.

Here, Bill Haberkamp explains the many ways this top kit and its optional features can enhance a Jeep® JK Wrangler 2-door or the four-door Unlimited!
