Talked to a guy at Advantage about the top.... At the time I purchased my top (May 2007) there was only a 7 year warranty on the vinyl, which I still fall within. At this point, I'll be taking some photos and sending them to Advantage to see if they'll cover it under warranty. I talked with my local truck accessories 'friend' and he's gonna write up a receipt for me if I need it. It was never mentioned when I talked with Advantage.
On a side note: If the 'vinyl' isn't covered under warranty... I was told (by Advantage) that it costs $100 to buy the vinyl tarp and it can be installed easily at home. I think he said 'free shipping'. If this doesn't fall under warranty, I won't hesitate to buy new vinyl.
The guy at Advantage had asked me - "Do you use vinyl protectants?"
I said YES and that I DO NOT use ArmorAll but couldn't remember the name of the stuff I actually use. I don't know if this will bite me in the ass or what....but the current warranty listing states they recommend Vyn-All-RX.
Once the weather clears, I'll take some photos.
