    I have a SuperTop for my DC LB. The thing was easy to put on and even easier to fold down or remove. I would recommend this as a great solution if you are not sold into getting a shell.


    As for the 3rd brake light i also didn't even hassle with it. I believe it can collapse with the top because it is very slim. Its the wiring that might be an issue.

    Not a problem! The last two photo's are current. I'm running a 3 inch lift with OME 886's up front, and HD Dakar's in back. The extra leaf with the HD Dakar's gives it a little rake that I'm not a fan of, but I tow a lot so I got to have it. :cool:

    the 2011 that I know of are not any different. I don't notice any difference in noise because I have at tires and my radio covers up any noise. Got mine for about 580 from amazon.

    yes they are. I had a problem with the frame, one of the poles didn't want to go together so on that part I sanded off the powder coat and repainted it with some rustoleum. I really like mine it looks really good on a black truck.

    Damn, just saw you have to drill through bedliner to install. I can't do that as its a company car. Gonna have to find another option I guess

    no drilling required!!!!!!! there is 4 clamps (2 each side) they use the rail system. and i suggest for the front, since they use velcro to hold down the front window, get some C-clamps to help to hold it down.

    I had one for a bit but eventually ditched it for a lockable shell with better rear visibility (glass window) and the ability to put a rack on top of. The bestop was great though.

    My only complaint is that the windows attract dust like crazy. There is an anti static products out there but I haven't had time to try it.

    So you don't have to drill through the bedliner for the clamps. That's how it showed on one installation diagram.

    nope no drilling at all. I might be able to take a pic of ho it clamp tomorrow if you need it. part of the clamp slides into the rail system and the other part clamps the rail for the bestop down to the truck.
