    Hey, I've searched around on this site and all I could find was a soft toppers for the double cab long beds. Does anyone know who sells soft toppers for an 08 shortbed? If so, you know a good online dealer?

    Thanks,

    Sean

    I'm also thinking of getting a soft top.

    forbeskin....how's yours working out? Work workmanship? Any drawbacks? Anything unusual or difficult about putting it together?

    Thx.

    The soft top has been great! No drawbacks I've seen this far.
    The only thing i really had to do is adjust it up by the cab for
    leaking, but it was pretty minimal. set up isn't that bad, takes a little effort to get everything stretched out, but if you do it in the summer time, it should be easier. I just went through this crazy ass storm here in memphis and it wasn't even phased. It's super easy to fold up or down, it's a little tougher in the winter but not that bad. I do love the convience and the looks. Very sweet canopy. You also tend to get stopped a lot by people wanting to know where u got it from. Got stopped by base police the first week I had it, lol.
