    Is there a soft top where there is a clear cover going vertically and the rest of horizontal but low to make the k5 look like a truck instead of a suv.. i dont know if my description makes any sense but bassically its like putting a tarp over the bed and then getting clear material to cover up the open space right behind the driver side.. i know ive seen some kind of cover like this.. does anyone know who makes it or have a website?

    Skyler makes a top like that. It looks like a tonneau cover with a soft vertical part behind the drivers area with a clear rear window. I'm not sure if they still make them or not. I did see one on eBay a week or two ago.

    I believe they are still being made. I just saw one in the new issue of 4-wheel and off-road. Sigh, if only I had all my upgrades done and $600 to blow.

    skyler was recently bought out by another company and they dont knoiw when that company is going to resume making there tops again, it could be for this summer, next summer, or even two summers from know. Specialty Top company makes one, but I dont like theres as much.
