Do you have the 1/2 doors to swap back on as well?

Full doors with no top looks a bit odd.

Your gutter kit is not from Badger as far as I can tell, as you should have footman loops attached to the inside of your gutter "fins". Also, while Badger's tops are nice, you do not have a NAS cage, and so a half cab top won't exactly fit as well as it would/does on our NAS trucks, as they utlize the snaps in our cage.

Just buy a bikini top with straps - it will work well-enough getting around your gutter kit, and you'll want the straps to secure the top to something on your top. Strapless bikini top would have to utilize the snaps on the B pillar of a NAS cage that you do not have, and so will not work.
Interesting. Who made it then?

The fins looks great. I agree that topless is way to go. If you go full nude they wont serve alcohol and that just kills the fun. Goldfinger's for the next SD rally anyone?
