Made my own a couple of years ago using a Bestop duster and bikini top with a custom made cab enclosure. Local Boat Canvas shop stitched up the rear panel with fixed window and snaps to seal up with the duster.

What is that you have keeping the back up? I'm tired of having a pond back there after a rain.

I bent up a piece of 1/2" electrical conduit with 90's on each end at the right width to hit both wheel wells. Then I trimmed each end so it was just tight enough to stay snug o the carpet.

I ran it for two years in northeast pa with minimal leakage. But I stripped my roll bar as you can see in the pic, took off the seat belt and ty-wrapped the top at the roll bar areas tight!

Ok i'm confused. I'm looking into buying one, but if you get the "hardtop" version (comes with surrounds) then it looks like they come with cheap bent bar surrounds that fit around the door like crap, but if you get the "softtop" version (doesn't come with surrounds) then you can use the factory plastic surrounds for a nice fit?
