    Yeah I've been thinking about purchasing a soft top for my 1989 Blazer and I was just curious on how good they are. How many of you guys have gotten one of these tops from this company? and do you think there worth the price thanks, John

    I don't know about the half cab version but I have a Kayline top for my full vert and love it! It seals better that the old rubber on my hardtop. It is allot noisier goin down the road but hey, I loveit!!!
    The price is very high, some have had thier own made by local custome shops! Something to consider....
    I got mine about 6yrs ago and it still is holding up well. I switch back and forth from soft to hard so that ain't 6yrs straight, you get the idea[​IMG]

    How much did yours cost? And how long did it take you to get it? I live in California and I think it would be sweet this summer to have a soft top. The only thing im worried about is people breaking into my Blazer. Have you had any problems with theft? Anyways thanks John
     
  4. Whenever you have a soft top or the top off, break-ins can increase. There is nothing you can really do about it besides not keeping anything valuble inside the truck.

    Also keep your doors unlocked, if they see something they want and the doors are locked, they WILL rip through the soft top. And then that is lost also.

    Good luck

    I just installed a Tuffy security console with a compartment for stero, it is big enough to easily put a couple of amps, see the review on the main page.

    kayline rocks! got a tan one on my blazer and a black one on my jeep. would reccommend the deniem over the regular though the denium looks like stock jeep tops and the regular can be armouralled for a shiney finish

    Opinions are like assholes...you know the rest

    I've had my Kayline top a few months and have already had 5 snaps pull out. It fits good but the snaps are super tight, it's painful to push the snaps together that hold the sides and rear up.

    Kayline just came out with the new Fast Trac model for the 76-91 K5's. You can get different colors and tinted windows. Like Steve said, you can protect your stuff with a Tuffy console. Most stereos have a detachable face plate these days. Don't forget it shaves the weight off your pig which helps with milage and off-road.
