ROW Soft Top to Hard Top

How many folks have made this change? It's about time for me to ditch the canvas and go to a real hard top.

Where did you get the new top from? What "gotchas" or "lessons learned" did you have?

If you do go SW I'm interested in your mesh top. I also have a rear door with hinges that you will need.

Lets talk when you are up - there are a few ways to approach with different results and effort.

Man, it's a shame we can't have the best of both worlds. The ST is excellent for wheeling and feeling more of the trail but not so much for daily driving when you live in four season regions. I go back and forth all the time.

I went HT with my build simply because the ST was going to cost a ton more $$$.
Bought mine through contacts here.

Word of advice if your HT comes without a headliner install soundproofing etc before bolting it on to your truck!
