    I took a hard top and cut it up and got some tarp and put in some snaps. NO holes in the body. made mine for not that much. Could have a boat shop make the top, but can be done on your own.

    or buy one!

    FYI my top cost me about $10-$20 to make. but did not look the best.

    I ordered my Fasttrac from Off- Camber, took about 2 weeks to recieve it. Put it on in April, and all it has done is rain since then. There is NO leaks and it looks great. Can't wait to leave the windows out of it!!! I think after shipping and all it was about $540. Well worth it to be topless and yet keep the cats out! (DAMN CATS!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif)

    i ordered one from stc speacialty top company and it sucked. i have the one that makes your rig look like a truck half cab and tonue cover. the hardware was three ribs to hold up the tonue cover and some rail system to keep the whole thing on. wel the first time it rained a huge puddle formed and stretched it out. i called the guy at stc and he told me that was normal. well after cussing him up one side and down the other i went to the hardware store bought some electrical tubing and made three more ribs and solved my problem. moral of the story the cover and stitching were good but the design needed my fabrication to work.

    having a soft top would be great... but i just cant justify spending $500+ on one. Wonder if the specialty top boys would sell me just the part that attaches the top to the half-cab top part... the rest would be easy to make myself... and a lot cheaper! lol!
