    I like the full top better. Never did like that "chopped-off" look. Sorry.

    if it went straight back from the cab to just behind the rear seat and THEN angled down to the tailgate area it'd be cooler...

    the truck on the webpage is a full convertible. what is this top going to look like? i am almost ready to buy a soft-top for my full convertible, is it going to attach to the front windsheild and go straight back to the tailgate. that would be bad, what would happen to the rear passengers? i would like to see something though. no pics yet.
