    i have a kayline top for my "74" blazer. i put quotations because technically my truck is a '79. you can see the pics of the top. go to the home page, side bar project vehicles; money pit.
    the top is for a 73-75 blazer/jimmy. it is black denim. i have no complaints about the top, it is quiet and dry and has put up to alot of abuse in the woods. the sides and back roll up to make a "bimini top" covering the front and rear passengers.
    i bought mine from turner four wheel in georgia. 1.800.THEJEEP. call them.
    hope this helps,
    MTPockets.

    I contacted Can-Back about thier tops and wondered if they were going to offer a top for the full converts. Unfortunately here is what they replied with:

    >>Michael; Thanks for the inquiry, but unfortunately not. The half-shell 76-91 proved to be more than a challenge and we decided not to take on the full top. Sorry we can't help you out on this one. Sincerely, Dick Lamont.>>

    So I guess Kayline is one of the only ones...

    AS FAR AS I KNOW KAYLINE IS A GREAT TOP TO HAVE. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS DURABLE AND EASY TO PUT ON AND OFF. I FOUND ONE FOR MY 74 BLAZER FOR $413.90 WHICH INCLUDES SHIPPING. THE SITE IS http://store.yahoo.com/camelot/trucks.html

    DAZED AND CONFUSED IN A 74 BLAZER

    I've had my best-top for somewhere nearing a year now. No complaints whatsoever. It was under 500 bucks too. I got mine from JC Whitney.

    Anyone else reading this and looking for the same should know I contacted Kayline and got the following responce so it may be worth the wait for their new top...

    Dear Sir:

    We are completing development on the fasttrac top for the 69-72 Blazer/Jimmy, at the present time. The fasttrac top for the 73-75 Blazer/Jimmy will be the next top we develop. We will begin on that when we finish the 69-72 top. I do not have an expected completion date for the 73-75 top, as yet. We do make a snap top for the 73-75 Blazer/Jimmy.

    Thank you for your interest, and I hope this helps.

    Sincerely,
