Re: hard top back on?
It was 40 degrees last night, supposed to be near the frost temperature tonight (freezing). Friday it was in the mid 80's, a heat wave, Saturday the cold moved in and settled down. It never got above 60 degrees all weekend. We're putting the hard top back on this weekend, every year we wait and put it on in November, but we've done a lot less wheeling this year and decided to just do it now. It's 53 degrees at 9AM here now, warming up.
I put the Scrambler top on a quick latch system, so it takes 30 seconds to undo the top, have you guys thought of that for your tops? Reid Tool carries some latches that have a 1,500 pound hold capacity (700 pounds working) that go cheap. I bought boat latches for the Scrambler, but it's a lot smaller, they work well and have been on for years, no problems.
