    So, now you can ditch your hardtop and tailgate. I know someone who needs a tailgate that has an operating back window. ;)

    Good for you! Soft tops are sweet. I'd never go back.

    Soft tops rip on trees.

    are you the same guy?

    I was following a thread on roof racks and some guy said, "Roof rack? You mean tree catcher?" If you said it on not, it was still pretty funny!

    valid point

    but with the insane variance in weather in the NW you have a few options

    1. go w/ the hardtop till july
    2. be a man and let everything get wet all the time
    3. get a soft top

    i chose 3 because i still use the functionality of my back seat. plus getting a soft top helps me shed unwanted weight from the top and the heavy ass factory tailgate. i will probably have it in safari/ tonneau mode most of the year.

    I like my idea better:

    1) Have a Blazer that is for summer use that the top stays off of all together.

    2) Have another Blazer for year round (winter) use with a hard top.

    3) Have another Blazer that's in between the two and gets used in the spring/fall.

    4) Then have one that looks like a shortbed and doesn't have a top.

    ;)

    Not all of us have a wrecking yard/used car lot in our back yard though.

    Good buy on that top I think you'll like it way more than the hard top. I just have a bikini on mine now and love it.
