Those of you running the curtain, do you have to move your seat forward or more upright?

No, you shouldn't have to, unless you ride in your truck gangsta style in the "lean back" position. That said, the curtain gets some of its rigidity from the pressure that the backs of the seat against the curtain provide. So, the seats will touch, but the straps on the curtain are long enough to give you quite a bit of adjustment if needed.

I have not see the need to move the seats up. Lavender bought one and he is fairly tall, he is happy.

How can you go "gangsta" with this bar blocking the seat?

The backs of my seats touch the bar. Maybe I am gangsta.

Received the drop curtain today and I'll go ahead and echo previous pages and say it's wonderfully constructed.

My car is at Rovertek getting the treatment so I can't comment as to fit quite yet. When I get the car back I'll post drop curtain pics in full gangster mode.

Thanks, Tom!!!!

Any chance you have access to standard ROW 110 ?

Seems to me you could use the same strap locations as Rainglers cargo net.
Its mounted behind the rear seats.

They told me that it fits the 110 as well. No roll cage.


I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Id bet a few of us ROW guys would be interested in keeping the car cool in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Thanks.

Rob

It's too warm to tell how much it will improve the temps when cold but it did seem to cut out some road noise.

Oh, if you have a tick ford you might want to add a snaps to the flap that goes to the B pillar because otherwise the top flaps at bit more at speed (which you have to unsnap to install the drop curtain. It should be easy to do though. I forgot to take a photo of that but will tomorrow.

Tom and I spoke about this a few times but I can't remember if it was cost or something else that was his concern. I thought it would be nice if these drop curtains came with double-sided snaps for those who need to use the B pillar snaps for their full tops, surreys, etc. My Badger full top has a velcro sleeve that wraps around the B pillar up top (i.e. the snaps are not used), so what I do is snap in the top corner pieces of the drop curtain, then snap in the center-snap, and Velcro inbetween all of the spaces between those snaps. My full top doesn't vibrate. That's one of the reasons why these drop curtain snaps stick out an inch from the rest of the drop curtain, so that those with the Velcro sleeve can get their B pillar sleeve through those spaces.

The easiest thing I would suggest for you would be to snap in the top corners of the drop curtain, then snap in your full top into the next snaps on either side, then snap in your drop curtain into the center snap.

I'll get a picture up later, but on the tickford there is a flap that wraps around the top of the B pillar from front to back and this is the one I am talking about. Because of the direction it goes the tickford flap is what will need the double snaps, not the drop curtain.

For a full Velcro set up I would recommend punching 5 holes (using. Grommet punch) so the snaps poke through. Or ask me to sew a set of Velcro on both sides of the curtain...

Gotcha. I thought they came down from the back of the B pillar, not wrapped around the front then to the back. The bikini section of my Badger half cab top has double-sided snaps on there, but it's because his design was built FOR a drop curtain to snap into the B pillar. Yes, it sounds like you'd want to install double sided snaps in your Tickford full top flap for the best results.
