custom soft top idea

Well, I had an idea a while ago. And I finally got around to photo shopping it.

Want some thoughts on it. I think it looks really good.

When I have some spare cash laying around I'm gonna have a go at it. Will probably mock it up with a bed sheet or something some day to see how it would actually look.

There is a hard shell version of that and a soft shell.

Look here: Gallery For > Diy Truck Canopy

5th row down looks close to your drawing.

As far as looks it comes together nicely
Practical value is limited because rear opening is small so cargo loading hampered

Those are somewhat similar.
Mine will be based on a roll bar, that will tie into a future exo cage.

Sides will be 100% removable, top will be as well.

I don't really haul crap, if I do, I'll simply remove the canvas. Will be a hell of a lot easier to remove 3 pieces of canvas vs a large hard topper.

Not bad looking. Sure prettier than the tops that grow taller in back!
Did it up your mileage?
