    Hey all.. I spent last summer picking and choosing my trips based on weather and slathering sun screen on my kid before any long drive in the sun.. One summer of that was enough, so today I ordered a top from softtopper for my 84' Jimmy.. Hat tip to softtopper as the ordering process was really easy.. They even refunded me a few dollars after they calculated shipping and it was less than first thought.. Here's to hoping the install is easy and the quality is good!.. I'll post up once it's installed with some pics and my thoughts.. To anyone who's installed one of these.. Any tips or tricks for the install that are maybe not covered in the instructions?..

    Let the top sit in the sun a couple hours, it well help it loosen up some and take your time adjusting everything.
    Seam seal the seams before you put it on as well.
    I've had mine outside in a storm we got 7 inches plus of rain from, not a drop inside!
