    Hi everyone, I was looking into buying a soft top and those canbacks look the best. Does anyone have one and how much are they? Any suggestions on other brands? Do those Canback ones leak much?

    I dont own one, but have been really reserching them. They are great tops, I beleive according to Steve, they leak some at first, but i think he said it curred itself (Could be wrong on that) Anyway i want one extremely bad but there major down fall is the price, i got a price of $1110 to my door with side windows and including shipping. I really am tempted, but am haveing a hard time deciding if i should pay a quarter of the value of the damn truck on a soft top.For a lot more info check out the write up steve did on it under product reveiws, and then foolow the link on that to the Can-Back web site. Or e-mail them and they are great about getting back to you, they responded to my e-mail the next day. I wonder if several people are interesedin getting one at around the same time if they couldnt give us a group rate. cut it down to a thousand or so. It is worth looking into, If e-nough people show interest, I would be will ing to contact them and ask.

    These tops are great, mine leaked the for the first week I had it and so far a year latter no leaks, I might not of had the seal tighted down enough the first time, I dunno. I will talk to Charlie when he gets back in to find out the scoop maybe I can talk him into some kind of discount.

    I have one sitting in my garage. Maybe someday I will find the time to put it on?? I got the Pachyderm w/tinted side windows and pacific blue fabric. I think I only paid about $1,000. shipped.
