Installed mine the other day. Wanted a 2-tone just for something different. The black looks nice on the sides, but the white will keep the contents cooler in the South. Softopper did this for no additional cost.
Am satisfied by the quality for the most part, though some of the hardware is way too flimsy for a product designed to go on the back of an otherwise very "abusable" truck.
Will go to the metal shop on Monday to have some of the plastic hardware replaced by metal parts instead. Even some of the metal parts need an upgrade.
This is not a waterproof design. Sure, it will keep the rain off, but unless you elevate your cargo off the bed floor, it will probably not stay dry.
Also, get those convex side-view mirrors to help with the lack of visibility. (I used these anyway to get rid of blind spots. Having driven a moving truck for years, this is no issue for me.)
All that said, I am happy I went with Softopper over Bestop, for the reasons mentioned by previous posters. The lines of this top look really good in person, and it will take very little work to upgrade the weaker components to expedition quality. The versatility Softopper provides over a hard top, a naked bed, a tonneau cover
, or even Bestop (which no longer offers mesh windows), is well worth it.
