    [​IMG] <font color=red> I'm doing the same thing. My power tailgate is nothing but a P I T A and the hard top is just dead weight. So a Kayline soft top it is, permanently![​IMG] I'm still waitng for it to show up but when I get it on the truck I'll let you know what I think and post some pics!

    Well ordered a kayline today. After talking to them on the phone they set my company up as a distributer so I got one. I'll be doing a complete install write up.

    Hey guys,

    I didnt have any problems with drilling the body and I love mine. I would guess my paintjob is far less than Shawns so I didnt hesitate. Shawns truck looks great and so does mine! Kayline did their homework. I would like to thank Shawn for some pre-installation questions. The top went on like a breeze. The review should be done this week. Waiting on pictures...

    Hey Shawn, did you notice that you can still roll up the factory window? I tried it the other day. It is about 3" away from the top but it still is functional if you want to cut the wind some when you have the rear window rolled up.

    Hey Moose-
    How much will it be for us K5ers to get the Kayliner soft tops through you? Do you also handle lift kits, steering stabilizers, shocks and shackle flips? Let us know.

    Thanks!

    I don't mind the holes but after owning a Skyler and seeing Steves Canback up close, there should no reason they can't make a drill-less top. The factory bolts should be able to support the cab channel with no problem. Velcro could of been used on the back instead of the channel which requires holes. No problem on the help Neil. Call me anytime. I did notice you can roll up the window but knowing my luck, the wind would bust the window in half and it would land on a cop going down the highway...
