I see no reason why they shouldn't be when the soft top is down, but I'm not sure how well they would work if you wanted to run with the soft top rolled like in your picture. The panels are stiffer than the soft tops, and fasten to the tub at the bottom using the rollcage bolts as attachment points. That's not to say you wouldn't be able to get creative with them though. The kit comes as three panels, on for the cab and around the doors, which fits forward of the roll bar, a center panel which fits in the front part of the rear roof, and a rear section, self explanatory. The panels secure to the roll cage via Velco straps. Can provide more pics if you need.

I'll post a bunch when the truck gets here. The photos I have now are crappy Witham sales guy pics and don't show anything useful.

I would like to figure out if these canvas 110 soft tops fit the Tithonus cages. I've heard speculation that they don't but not sure. I prefer the look of these to the plastic tops. Many of the plastic tops on ebay.co.uk are really expensive, too.

Chris I could be wrong but I don't think it will. I had a 1980 series 3 109 ex mod with basically the same top as the defender canvas you have pictured, TRUST me you want the PVC top. The way it secures to the cage makes for very little flapping. The canvas requires treating and still flaps like a flag in the wind. The gutter system for these trucks are extruded aluminum and are very nice. Trust me, the pvc top is a fare superior product.

Abe, I guess I need to see one in person. The flappy canvas would be nice in summer--I'm usually rolling with the door tops off and the sides rolled up--but the PVC would be nicer in fall and spring. I'll definitely be rolling the hard top in the crappy Seattle winter, though.

You may be slightly misinformed - winter it seems is the only time that it's not raining in the northwest... Oh and the two weeks at the end of summer right after the kids start back to school.
