    hi... I was wondering where you can find a reasonably priced soft top for my blazer... i have an 85 k-5, and i was just wondering who carried them, what sites to go to , etc.

    p.s. Anyone know why my truck ( when im almost stoped) feels like someone is rear ending me. 4x4 problems? any info would be great.

    It could be a host of problems, is it lifted? Tell us the specs, and fill out your bio, but off the top of my head i'll say its probably lifted and you're getting a slip yoke bind and clunk, try lubing the rear drive shaft slip yoke. but thats just a guess without any info on your truck.

    Would it not be cool if Offroad-design just made them.

    Skyler is in the process of selling out to a larger company. They told me they should hopefully be up and running again by mid summer, I am in the process of trying to get a more exact date from them but so far have gotten no responce.I think i am going to wait becuase i am verry impressed with the quality and design of their tops, but I dont want to wait to long, so if they are going to take forever, i will just have to get one custom made.

    Welcome to ck5!
    Does it make any noise when it does that? If it does, do you have an idea of where it's coming from?
