    Looks good. Where'd you get it? Looks like a Canback, tho I know they don't make them anymore.

    Nice. I've been thinking about getting a soft top. How do you like the snap down design? How much does it move around while driving? How easy is it to open the tailgate?

    Snap down is cool. To be honest i really didnt even notice much of a noise issue with this over the hard top. its a little bit noisy when it rains but thats it. Tail gate is easy since with this your window is always down, only thing is you have to drill the other parts of the snap into the tail gate. Only thing i wish i wouldve done is been a little more carfeful with measurements and waited a week or two for it to get warmer for the easier install. my measurements were right but when we started drilling one side was off by like 1/4 of an inch and made it harder to get the top on.
