    Hey guys...

    I am considering selling off my Leer 100XL cap and buying one of those canvas top, tent-like, zipper-upper, safari looking thingies. Does anyone have one of these on their trucks? What are they actually called? Where can I find them? Would this be wise, or should I keep my leer and switch them out every summer / winter?

    I'm super close to pulling the trigger on a bestop supertop. I have heard nothing but good about them in general and i personally like the look. The only downside is it limits visibility compared to no top, but since you currently have a top... that will not be an issue for you. part number for bestop is 76306-35 for the 1st gens. found for around $500 on i think etrailer.com

    Thanks facemob... that's the exact one Ive seen around that I liked. I checked out what I could get for my leer, and it's pretty much a wash. If Im not gonna profit, Im keepin the hardtop as well. Cheapest I found was $550 at 4wheelparts.

    The only downside I've heard of is they are impossible to put up when it'd cold out.

    Thanks for that tid-bit of advice... this shouldn't be a problem though, since it's going to be my "summer top".
