I'm thinking you might need to play with the spacing between the seat and the bulkhead just to be sure the passenger's head doesn't come into contact with the back window. Sudden stops and off road situations could spell ouch. This is a problem on facing seats in my SW off road.

I hear that. The bench seat wont be in the bed if the cab is on, just soft top.

Honestly a lot of people cant handle riding backwards in a moving vehicle. Would keep them facing forward.

Since these things no longer have any responsibility for HVAC work they are now orange footwell accent lights.

Window gap fix - sort of!

Hello - I obtained a new (old) BestTop and was saddened to see that the gap between the windows on both sides between the window and top (what might be the "B" pillar) still had 1/2 - 3/4 in gaps. I installed the top in the warmer weather and now that its cold the gaps are worse. I was unaware about the inadequacy of the heater (even after I fixed it) so the gaps with air rushing through the cabin made it a worse thermal situation.

So - I noticed that my top was missing the (metal?) rails that run vertically up the B Pillar. I decided to fashion my own and install.

See the gap on the drivers side below (#1). Was 2x that on the passenger side!

I fashioned some metal slats I bought at my local hardware store. Made them 24 inches each and bent the last 2.5 inches into a right angle.

I filed them down so there were no sharp edges and slid up the channel in the soft top.

Then finally, I pulled them forward towards the front of the Landy and secured with a clamp. I drilled a small hole and then pop-riveted them into place at the bottom (not top).

Happy to report that for the drivers side it was 100% fix! For the passenger side, I had to add a little sticky weather stripping but alas, I seem to be fixed for the winter!

Hope this helps any of you!
