    I know this is probably old hat for you guys, but I took the top off today so I could drive the rig out to pick up the new top with the sliding windows. I couldn't believe how great it felt driving without the top. I can't wait til next spring. As to the top, it's in pretty good shape, had to clean out alot of pine needles and spiders. What a bear to put on though. Definitely gotta rig something up in the garage to lift and store next spring. Gonna be selling my other hard top (non sliding windows) any thoughts on a fair price?

    I've been topless since the second day I bought my truck this past summer. Nothing better than a unubstructed view of the Sierra's. The snow is comming so it's gonna have to go back on soon. If I had a garage I'd leave it off all year long.

    Man, I need to update that top storage article, anyway here is a pic showing the final resting place of the hard top, it is never coming down, it may even stay up there if I sell the house.

    Man you got some sweet garage space. As it is I'll probably have to back the truck in, lift the top and leave it hanging over the hood as I park normally in the garage. Looks like it will work in my mind, just have to see if it works in execution (next spring).
