    I don't know about the half top but I have a http://www.kaylinetops.com top and I love it! It seals out the weather nicely and the frame/bed rail design limits the about of holes that need to be driled into the bed rails.
    good luck

    I agree with Burt. Kayline is a good choice. With their new FastTrac model and different colors with a tinted window option, Kayline is what I'm going with. There's also Bestop but I haven't seen a color option for that. If you want a truck look, check out Skyler or Creative Products.

    I strongly urge all of you to stay away from Bestop. I bought one and it was junk. Poor craftsmanship and the cheapest parts they could get. I wrote a letter detailing my complaints and the called and told me if I'm not happy return it; for a full refund. To make a long story short, after they got it they wanted to deduct a 20% restocking fee. It took dozens of phonecalls and almost a year to get my money.

    Friends don't let friends buy Bestop.

    Recently installed a Skylercorp soft-top. Very happy with it but a little on the expensive side. There was no drilling and the thing is easy to take on and off. Has a great look too. They have a websit, you should check it out.

    Did someone say Kayline is coming out with a new top this year?
    Is there an option w/ the kayline to keep the spare on? I would like one, but I would also like to keep my spare rack on.
