I really like your soft windows though ... Not a bad option. Did you make the windows yourself?
its more of an aesthetic concern rather than structural. i just dont know if ill like the look or not.

I like it ... The more I look at it the more I really like it.


If you wanted to add more bolts, I'm sure you could just drill a hole and bolt to the top of the tube steel.

I dig the i tube hatch idea. I would go that route as well if I didn't want to keep the dogs secure inside

I wish I took more of this route now. I don't drag on anything now, but my trans mount sits a little too high now, putting everything at a slight angle. My e fan hates it.
