    *RELOAD PAGE IF PHOTOS DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY RESIZE*

    I picked up a used Supertop from somebody who was selling it with their truck on Craigslist for $250. Installed it yesterday, and decided to go wheelin' up in the mountains all day with a buddy of mine. It was his first time ever off-roading, so I let him drive the Taco a bit. Took a few pics with it, and I gotta say...I really love the dynamic it adds to the truck! Didn't put the windows on til I got home late last night, what a bad idea...those things are impossible to put on in the cold.

    To anybody who is even considering buying one for your truck...I highly recommend it. Amazing product, hands down.

    Throw up your own Bestop in action photos if you got 'em!! :cool:

    Everbody has their own opinions on them I guess...I just love the versatility and the build quality. I don't think I'll ever sell mine.

    Sweet pics... I'm really torn between soft cap vs hard cap. I really need a cap for my dog. Really like the look and versatility of the softcap.

    The hard caps are nice if you plan on leaving them on for long periods of time, and you have the money for them. I went with the soft cap because I can fold it down when I'm not using it, or even completely take it off without sacrificing too much space to store it. The only drawback with the Bestop is that you have virtually no security of items inside the bed. I just wont ever put anything of value in there.

    Nice man. Glad you got some pics up.

    How's the range with your firestik mounted like that? I know you were researching options before. I had no luck with my humongous K40 mounted in that exact same manner.

    Truck looks good with it on and no windows, though!

    Thanks man. I have no way of testing the range on the 5' Firestik...I need to get it tuned first, then possible do a test with another member or somebody who has a CB in my area. Hoping to test it this Sunday at our mountain meet.

    LOL I had them up on my website, which automatically resized them, but the links show them in full size. My bad, but there is a disclaimer in my first post :cool:
