Half cab and full tonneau

Has anyone had any issues with the badger half cab not letting you put the seats back as far as they can go? Im about to order a top from Chris, and while im drawn to the utility of the half cab with the half tonneau, im pretty tall and am concerned that the half cab drop curtain would not allow me to put the seats in a comfortable position. Anyone have experience with this?

Also, what the heck is a full tonneau? Does anyone have a picture of it on a D90?

Lastly, I ordered Badger footwells thinking they were the replacements for the cardboard kickpanels. I cant for the life of me figure out where these go.

Thanks all,

bbc

Here's my take- there is a bar that holds the drop and tonneau together that goes behind the seats. Although it looks like it would, it does not restrict the movement of the seats- they don't go any further.

You need to lean the seats forward to put the drop curtain on, but once on you can lean them back almost all the way. The seat back helps push the drop curtain out and cuts down on the "flapping" noise by holding the top tight.

So, the only thing the drop curtain really affects is the seat lean angle- and unless you like to drive on your back it won't matter. It's really only two or three degrees less than what the internal roll bar allows. Hope that makes sense.

Ron,

Who bought that Full Tonneau from you? I wonder if they use it. That is exactly what I need for the trail, since I never put my ST on.
