'best top' makes a nice retractable soft top i got one on mine, check it out

i dont have very good pics of it yet but when it clears up i can get you them,
you can order these at any truck accessory place

all windows are removable and replacable with mesh or can leave open

a few tips on the install

dont use the third brake light (really weak)
bolt the frame to the truck, dont clamp it!

i had one of those bestop retractable toppers on my toyota, i didnt like it too much, my dog ended up chewing it and i thought it would seal better than it did. but i think i was expecting more out of it. if i didnt have a dog to put in back and just wanted some shelter for camping and so on, it would be ideal.

1200 isn't bad considering the fiberglass ones can run much higher in price and with these you are able to do so much more in terms of stowing when not in use and if your in a bind for items that are taller then the cab.
the one i posted folds up like my tonneau does. right at the base of the cab at the front. imo that is a nice feature and worth it.

the soft topper one is the one i want. 589 before shipping. and shipping is 32 bucks.

i think i might go with that one. retracts down like a convertible kinda if you hve to put something tall in the bed. super convenient.
