    If any of you are like me, you probly will never put you'r hard top back on again. After getting a Kayline full soft top and a Kayline Roll bar top for my 75, I decided to make use of the tailgate for storage. First I took all the screws out then put hinges on the cover, and last put a cabnet key lock on it.(the window was smashed a long time ago). The best thing about it is nobody (but everyone here)
    knows you have anything there!

    Just an suggestion.

    Did you seal the gap where the window used to roll up and down? Not a problem when the top is on, but you could get water down in there when one of those sudden Colorado afternoon carwashes fire up while the top is down. [​IMG]
