    I guess you have not called them, the stripped model with no side windows is 750, then the side windows are 75 bucks each.

    If you have a nice roll cage you could rig something up pretty cheap by just putting some fabric over it tied down with bungees.

    It is an expensive top, but it is very high quality and should last a long, long time, you can easily add a roof rack to it also, going to be 90 today, just rolled up the sides and back, ready for this weekend.

    I don't understand why they don't make them in white. That is the only color that would match my k5. Oh well, I don't have $900 anyway.

    Very easy to install, the roof rack bolts to the spreader bars that are between the ribs, you can see pics at http://www.can-back.com
