    Unless you are a bodywork god, i'd say get a donor. It willl never line up or seal properly without one. If its just to wheel, maybe, but if you plan to DD it or care about how it looks, the donor approach is best.

    If u are just going to be using a soft top all the time, i say it can be done fairly easy. But i would get a donor if u ever plan on using a full hard top.

    The soft top will attach to the top of the regular cab K5. The kit comes with a bracket (if you buy the fasttrack style of top) that gets screwed to the top right behind the windshield that the top locks into. You would also have to cut your doors down and I would recommend using the end caps from a 73-75 if you can find them. It can be done I believe I have seen it on here. I also plan on doing the same thing as I do not have the space to store nor can I find a 73-75 windshield frame but I will only run a soft top.
