Are you able to ride with the seats all the way back? Seems to me like you'd have to skootch them forward a little.

The poster above has the version I'm talking about. If you look at the instructions on the "hardtop" version, the door surrounds are just a bent bar, and you have to bolt a bracket that connects to only the bottom of the roll cage instead of both sides like the factory surrounds. There is also another bracket that is bolted to the surround, and the other end bolted to the tub... The "softop" version tells you to wrap it around the surrounds just like the factory softtop. Why would they even design such a poor product when the factory door surrounds work just fine?

See where the top meets the door? Such a poor fit and poor quality! I hear nothing but leaks and that you have to slam your door with this version.

does anyone have any pics or know of anyone running the halftop without the rear roll cage? I know this is potentially dangerous but just trying to get an idea if it's something I wanna do
