Soft top thanks

I just want to thank NHMuddRunner and technoman for their info on the Skyler soft top. I ordered it, and it rocks! It was easy to install, it looks dope and the technical support was friendly and informative. I love going topless when it's hot out! Ha ha!

Re: Soft top thanks

Hey Spike: Was that top truly a bolt on? I was thinking about getting one this summer for my 82. Did you have any problems with it? It sounds like you like it but give us the info, thanks.

Re: Soft top thanks

Do you think I could get one even if I have a roll bar that extends to the rear tire wells?

Re: Soft top thanks

I am going to get a Skylar Top.. its more expensive then the Rest.. BUT it has a FRAME that you bolt on in using factory bolts, it uses VELCRO instead of Snaps.. (Better seal.... the Military Hummers use a velcro soft top... works GREAT, doesn't leak).

Also This top WILL not be able to be used in you have a Wheel well attached roll Bar... You can get a Soft Canopy top. K-BAR-S has them and so does Jeffs Bronco Graveyard.... These have a support frame and it looks like your hard top....

Re: Soft top thanks

Hey Shovel: The top we were talking about is from Skyler- check it out a www.Skylercorp.com. I don't belive that it will work with a roll bar as it fits like a bed cover on a pickup and fits flat on the "bed" section of your bronc.

Re: Soft top thanks

The only "permanent" part about the top was that the velcro for the tail sticks on; there's no holes to drill, just 5 rails to bolt on. In fact, they supply new bolts, 'cause the stock one's are VERY long , and probably a bit oxidized on most of our trucks. They say to treat the seams with Scotch-Guard (which I heard is being recalled, as it's carcinogenic). I treated the seam at the bend, and after a LUDICROUS amount of heavy rain in MA, those threads didn't wick. I did get a bit of moisture from the seams around the window (a drop or two fell when I shut the door and the top shook), but I've treated those seams and it should be cool. On my '90, I can run the top with the rear seat folded, or folded and tumbled to make lots of space in back. Either way, I can tear off the top and stow it and I'm back to a 5-seater. Kids love the back when the top's off! I would recommend a small amp, at least, if you're running around with your top off, but that's just my thing. So, in summary, no real problems, Mudd.

Re: Soft top thanks

Hey Spike: Thanks for the info on that top. Sounds like a quality unit. s I said I am considering one for my 82 and it's nice to get first hand info on the product from someone with similiar needs and demands as what I will put on it.
All I can say is "I love having a place to pass info back and forth with people with similiar interests."
