    That's a nice looking truck. A fresh paint job would top it off. Also maybe some chrome/aluminum wheels, but that's just me. Nice work!

    the top was way too much work,
    first off the kit was very cheaply made,
    there were hardly no instructions or measurements,
    to call tech support was like $3.95 per minute,
    i still have to guide the windows up and down after welding in a track support,
    one piece already cracked,
    the glue tech bond is the biggest sham ever ran all over everything and still does't hold,
    the latches they send are just crap,

    now it's done i like it to do it again NO NO NO if i ever say yes hopefuly someones there to slap me,

    i itook in all 3 12hour days start to finnish, about 50 cut wheels and lots of test fitting,

    the total cost was around $850.00 or so,

    if i can do it again i would of cut the top choped it and filled in the gap, than i would of payed a sail maker to make cab cover like a jeep has, it would hook under the hood and go to a slant down to the back of the cab to attach, i'd put it on when i went places just in case,

    since it still leaks i only drive the truck when it's nice or just drizzly anyway,

    the company i bought it from AIM INDUSTRIES is in my opinion the worst and i would never ever recomend them to anyone,

    for support i welded a 1" square tube acrossed the back and three going down to the cross support,

    for the roof i used the same and went acrossed with 2 one on the back and one on the windshield support to affix the clamps to, i will take some pick this weekend,
