    Hi everyone. I installed the softopper on my truck and it looks and fits great. Very happy with it. They make a good product.

    I think they look great!

    Tan Softopper, Pyrite Mica truck - best color combo on the planet if you ask me. I may get one if I decide I want to forgo automatic car washes for good. I suppose I should do that anyway...

    Thanks...

    I bought off craigslist for 300, (sorry HRDTACO) I was surprised how good it looked, I thought gray would look better, but I was sold once it was on...

    Installed mine last weekend. I went with the Best Top...same price sounds like. So far happy with it. Cold weather has made it difficult to attach the side panels but the zippers are holding it in until it warms up.

    Black on a white truck looks sweet... and yes I get a lot of questions too!

    I was looking into these. I see on their site "white" is a color option, but 99.99% sure that would like shit.

    Mine stays really dry, you have to seal the seams, like any tent, once a year or so.
