You also need to install your upright channels. Did you get a chance to send the other covers back?

Getting there (sorry Chris!). Tried getting it out to you before vacation, but it didn't happen. This week for sure.

You're talking about the vertical piece of the Gutter Kit to the rear of the window, right? If so, I have them off as I'm repainting them black.

Are you kidding me! I have wanted door tops for 6 months now! I didn't know they were in production again.
Josh Can you take a photo with the door top zipped all the way out? I want to see how they look zipped out.

Zipped down today. Here are some pics I took. Looks like when zipped down they hit the door catch a little upon closing the door. It doesn't get pinched in there though from my attempts.

That's the perfect photo to show that with the window zipped down you might as well take the canvas door top out and put it back in it's bag. The purpose of the zipper is for when you go to a toll booth or ATM machine. The purpose of the door top is to leave the hard door tops at home and use the canvas ones when it starts to rain or get chilly.

Definitely agree with you, Chris. Looks like they'd be fine zipped down while driving, etc., but I wouldn't recommend keeping them unzipped and down if you're going to be in and out of the truck a bunch. Like I said they didn't get pinched (even when I tried to see if they would), but I could see it happening at some point.

Great product (once again) Chris; definitely a useful upgrade from stock...as always, looks like you really took the time to make these work properly.

Horsey, is that a door seal hanging near the rear of the door top?

Yeah, I think like 2 posts ago in this thread I mentioned how I took those vertical bars off to repaint them (remember the PO had put silicone sealer on it? Some of the black coating came off when I took the silicone off).
