I hope it becomes a mass buy item. That would be great.

This is a great idea...finally I can down size to just this top, instead of a bikini, safari, full soft top, and a hard top. I feel this will satisfy all our requirements. I would like to be put down for one please

I can see that the standard roll bar/cage will fit under it. Any idea if the half cab roll bar will fit? As you can see in the pic at least mine is a little higher than the roof...

Also, can the skin from the rear section be removed or do you have to remove the whole rear section? Similarly, if I wanted to go totally topless for the day, about how long will it take to remove or reinstall the front skin? Or is this a just easier to remove the whole thing? Curious, its often easier to store/stash the skins in the truck than the whole frame, if your already out.

Again, great job! Let us know when pricing is set.

Sorry about the delayed response. I have been on the road and just got back last night. Leaving for Moab Friday. Anyway, I stopped posting about my top or looking at the other tops because I did not want any confusion about who did what. As it turned out 2 of the 3 tops I know of in the works showed up at the LEBC event and were very different. At 150 feet they look about the same but the closer you get the more diff. they are. It was not a matter of coping or upping the ante just two groups coming up with what they think is the best top. That is the way it should be.
The front and rear part of our top is stretched seperately so either part can be removed leaving the other part tight. In fact the rear part (rear frame, rear top, side windows and rear window) can all be removed together and remain tight by removing 8 bolts and un zipping the 2 parts. The front and rear part of the top is connected by a zipper and the zipper is covered by a flap that uses 1 velcro to hold it down. The zipper is on top of a hoop. A water hose does not produce leaks.

At the side or center? The hoops are higher in the center.

I know the new Heep and Geo Snacker tops have mech to unclip and then fold back the top as easy as a sun-roof dose on modern cars, is it this easy on this top??

Regardless, I dig it and am scrape'n the piggy's belly as we speak, by the time they are for sale I'll be place'n the order!

THX CHUCK!!!!!!!!!!

The front can be rolled back or removed by removing 3 strapes and the snaps across the front

The top will be available in white. The time? I hope in the next few weeks. The sew shop will have the top later this week for a few finishing touches. Then he will make one from the patern and give me a price. I am leaving for Moab Friday, I hope he will be done by the time I get back.

Sorry, I'm tying to find out how tall from the bed rails to the highest point. Or how much taller is the center than a stock hard top?
