I lodged a few complaints with Bestop the other day. I'm glad the cab is enclosed better than my old windjammer, however this wraparound jammer has a few issues.
First, there's no consideration for the roll bar straps of their tonneau (duster) cover. You basically have to cut slots in the new wrapjammer if want to tighten up the tonneau. The rollbar straps of the tonneau are rendered useless. Second, the snap strip across the back is too high, and even if you try to snap it to the tonneau, it's too high and tight and won't stay snapped. Another mod needed right out of the box.
One last observation, if you use the opening between the roll bar and old windjammer as a line of sight to traffic off your left side, that's gone. Not a design issue, but from a usability standpoint I miss the glance over my left shoulder.
Had I known the fit and function issues, I would not have purchased this. My guess is you'll see an updated version from Bestop fixing a few things....
