Scott, they have a few readily available. From what I understand, they are just trying to get organized before going public. It's a really small company but they're supplying some really cool items.

What are the pros and cons vs a badger on this top?

Todd, my opinion? This is the perfect top to have while waiting that year/year 1/2 for the Badger. Or, the perfect alternative for those who simply prefer a CANVAS top, an oem part, without the looong cost. Not to mention, those who prefer to have something that not many others have.

The tickfords have a few more options than the Badger tops do, i.e. you can roll back the front section and drive that way with the tickfords, you can roll up the sides with these, etc. which you can't do with all Badger tops. Oh and these also have Alpine windows, which are pretty cool. From what I've seen, the fabric that they used to make these doesn't shrink as much as the Besttops did/do over time. It looks like the wait is also shorter with these.

Not all tick fords have the roll back front section. I found that out by buying a used one that the b pillar fabric to affix to the b pillar was completely different than the roll back type with no snaps or webbing to hold the rollback in place.

Just got the re-imagined tickford top from Phillip. All I can say is WOW. It's amazing looking, and really well made, Installation process is just like the bestop but less painful (less knuckle tearing). Here's a quick pic. Thanks Phillip!

Nice looking top. Re: the roll back front section - I see how that would work with the old snaps, but with a belt rail, how would you release the tension w/ the beltrail on the windshield retainer to roll it back?

I have yet to roll mine back. I believe i would need to release the snaps above the doors and the roll cage to allow some movement/slack.

Assume this does not work with a belt rail and must have original snaps? My 1994 has a belt rail. Love the look of this top!!
