Default Bushwacker Soft Top

I've been looking at Bestop NX Glide soft tops, but came across Bushwacker which has two versions:

Fast Back - bushwacker.com/trail-armor/jeep-trail-armor-fastback-soft-top-14925
Flat Back - bushwacker.com/trail-armor/jeep-trail-armor-flat-back-soft-top-15225

Has anyone checked these out?

The Bushwacker Trail Armor Flatback has been installed.
It took about 3 1/2 hours to unbox & layout all the parts, build the frames for the door surrounds, then attach the covers.
It is actually a farily easy install.
A couple tips -- When building the surrounds, it doesn't distinguish that the front bracket is smaller than the rear bracket. Also, when tucking the main top deck to the upper door surrounds, it is best to un-fasten the velcro first. This loosens the fabric just enough to tuck the plastic strips. Then fasten the velcro back in place.

It fits pretty tight. The tonneau cover was hard to tuck in, but just waited for some sunshine to loosen it a bit. The road noise isn't too bad (a little louder than the hard top) but nothing out of the
ordinary for a soft top.

It is a well-made, good quality black twill! I like it!

Will that flat back top work for someone who has installed the rear seat recline blocks? Any room behind the windbreaker?

Good question. I don't have the recline blocks installed, but I'm guessing the seats are angled towards the back a bit.
I just went out to check the spacing. There's plenty of give / space in most of the windbreaker area against the back seat, except at the two corners. Its really tight at those locations only, with not much give. I can fit my hand between and it gives some separation just barely.

Based on those pictures, I'd say no, won't work with the rear seat recline blocks. I have the blocks installed and they definitely lean the top of the seat back more than that top is going to allow.
