Never heard of Gr8 tops. But after a quick search they look like any other generic one.
I'm holding out for the pricier ones. Been zeroing in on the Autana Sky. But it's hard to pull the trigger on a $2000 tent. But mounted to a rack on my utility trailer with my quad parked under it. Just so convenient I'm sure I'm gonna pull the trigger this spring.

Have you heard of the Frontrunner Featherlite RTT? http://www.frontrunneroutfitters.com...-top-tent.html
Apparently it has the lowest profile on the market when closed (<8" height). If I was to get a RTT mounted on my roof rack I'd want one that is as small as possible while still retaining good quality.
For now I think I'm leaning towards building a rear deck enclosure. Something that 1-2 people could sleep on inside of the LJ. I would want it to be able to fold into a shorter deck for when the rear seats are in and to be able to fold out all the way to the front seats when the rear bench is tumbled forward or completely removed. I've read that such a deck can be as long as 72" folded all the way out which is good for me since I'm just 5'7". Any thoughts on this?
