WOAH... did you modify your Pop Top? Looks good! That's how I would want to do mine! Did you have to sew on extra material to the canvas in the back and add a lifting mechanism back there as well? Very cool!

Re: Moab

It a secret.

Just kidding.
I was driving down the highway at 75mph in a 40mph head wind and had just installed a new type of latching system to the top. well it didnt work and the top blew off scared the crap out of me . It was 14degrees and I was 200 miles from home as well as pulling avery cherry vintage chevy truck. Thank someone that the top flew over the truck and missed it but a total loss on the top. and a cold ride home!

I found 2 more tops and bought them but the canvas's were nasty so I designed this one and had it made. I have one top left and the exact same canvas minis windows and it is not attached to the top but that's easy.

as for the latching system I went back to the trusty tule rack it just works so good.
