Hi Tom. I've got an extra used one in storage. I have no idea what it looks like, but once I figure that out, would you want to trade anything for it?

Tom,

I have a 1995 Softtop. 3 months after buying the truck I put the fiberglass hardtop on. I always thought I would go back and fourth.......but after installing a roof rack I never went to the trouble to swap tops.

I also have the Bikinni top (I think that is what it is called - the top that just goes over the seats, and has two straps to the back...........SAME DEAL with this top.

I have had this Softtop stored, with all the soft windows, and window bag since the car was 3 months old. I believe I also stored ALL the parts to attach it.

This truck has sentimental value to me......and I have always thought it was special that I had all the original parts. But now that I have had the top stored for 11+ years.......I am starting to lean the other way.

I have not though of a price........and I don't know what the shipping would be, but I guess I could open up all that I have stored, and take a picture of the parts and pieces if you are interested in pursuing this.

Let me know..............Flagg

What's your number?

Tom:

I was down at our storage unit yesterday and looked at the top. Go figure that I didn't have my camera!

Here's the situation: The top that is currently on my truck is in good shape. It has one + shaped tear in the left rear, with each axis about 1.5 inches long. On the same panel, there is also a seam split that is about 3 inches long. All of the plastic window panels are in very good condition. It's made by Bestop

The other top is also a Bestop and from what I could tell, it has a couple of seam splits, the rear plastic window zipper is toast and it has a few other issues. For some odd reason, I think I'd rather keep the beater top, as I have a hard top on the way which will be used 7 months out of the year.

I'll take $400 for the top that is on mine now, and can send you pictures if you're interested.

Call me at 970.274.4042 if you want to discuss. I'm open to ideas

Follow-up Post:

That's what I sent on Saturday.

Hi Flagg,

Do you still have your softtop? If so, I am really interested in it. Do you also have the cross bar that mounts above the rear tailgate, the side fasteners, and alpine bow?

Thanks,
Brian
