Nene Overland Extreme Soft Top-Double Cab

Thoughts on this? I personally think the idea of having a double cab soft top would be pretty neat.

Very blingy. Would look right at home pulling up to a club and/or featured on TMZ.

Ah! good to hear. I agree, the open air is awesome. That's one I would want to see in person to be sure the fit and finish is spot on. Nothing is worse than a windy, loud, leaky top if it doesn't fit well.

Your tub isn't ideal for this set-up

No, because your bed is separate from the cabin, and because the bed is wider than the cabin. Doug probably has the real photos I'm looking for, but there were 130s built for the Dutch government with an integrated bed that was flush with the rest of the body. This was the closest I could find to what I'm talking about, but you get the idea.


We spoke about a similar one here, but of course no pics.

Aha! Thanks Josh, you got your point across perfectly, despite the lack of proper pics.

I personally think the Nene truck looks pretty sharp, along with MANY of others they have---but not much of a fan of the silver cage, steps, etc on the particular photo depicted. That's just me. My main question was really regarding the thoughts on a 110 or 130 double cab soft top though, not the complete set-up on the Nene 110.

Photoshopped? Let's see the NAS defenders!

I prefer 110s, and living here a soft top is a must. 130 or 110?? Depends on size of your crew. Both are super cool. Gets more looks than a Ferrari or G500 at the traffic light!

Mark, that's pretty sharp. Especially like that you still have a roof rack w/ the soft top.

Slightly more polite than Pimped, but not much.
