Re: Hard top question
If I can direct your attention to the left...
It comes off easily, though the newer ones have a special security torx that has a nipple in the middle. The torx bit can be easily found however.
I believe there are 15 bolts total.
taking off putting on is a bit of a pain, so I now have a nice year round soft top. We are supposed to be getting some really high winds today/tomorrow, so I will test whether it blows off or stays in high winds [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
kidding, should be fine, works great on the highway.
The hardtop, I built a 33" tall platform, 8x8' so that I could do the removal/replacement myself. I can back the truck right up to it, so its just a matter of doing the turtle with the shell on and off the platform, into the bed of the truck.
It weighs about 150lbs, so if you don't have something setup like I describe, it is best to have the help of another person.
