    I remember those type from the 80s, my dad lost one when it diintegrated on a highway, it was 7 years old. They are light and inexpensive though. Just do 1 thing, wait n see a taco go by with one on and see f you like it. Some businesses use them in my area.

    Would not be my first choice but my family has used those type of tops on all their truck vehicles over the years with no issue. Of course their trucks were true "work" trucks and overall looks were not that important to them,

    My wife agrees with you guys. She says it wouldn't look right on the truck.
    I hate to spend the money for the other options.
