The handling was noticeable at first, but nothing major. I haven't even filled her up since the install. I'm close to E now though, so I'll see how it is tomorrow after work.

So I got back a little earlier than usual from Boston today, and it was a BEAUTIFUL day outside. I decided to get that damn soft top off.



Cracked open a beer...



...and took the duster out of it's box.



Put the duster on first...







...and then after a round of golf with the birth-giver, I installed the rest of the top.



I like the look so far, but now I'll have to pull into the driveway so that if it rains, it doesn't run forward into the cab.

Looks good. If it wasn't for the rear window not sealing 100% I would probably be running a duster setup myself.

You are not going to be happy when driving while it rains. On a more positive note , it looks great with the duster/safari top .

Yes , the rain will go past the doors and whip back in . It makes for a "refreshing" drive

I wouldn't mind one bit. I usually run sarafi mode all summer unless there is a torrential downpour in the forecast. I dont mind the nice mist.

Also- that summer shandy is delicious. I had myself one or 12 Saturday night.

Harbor Freight started importing them by the container load and selling them for less than I could buy one . Sadly the pre killed monkey market is now flooded with inferior cheap imports .

A pre killed lion loses some of the scary factor . But if you could train one to play dead you might have something .
