    I built my own for a fraction of the cost of the Skyler top. I used a frame from an old tonneau cover that I picked up for next to nothing. I bolted pieces of aluminum angle to the stock locations on the back of the cab and then bent and attached a 2 inch wide piece of aluminum up and over the top of the back of the cab portion. I had the tonneau cover made at a local shop which also installed a zip-able rear window. The total cost was $150.00 for the upholstery work and $20.00 for the misc. aluminum and hardware.
