    there used to be a company that made something like that with windows for visibility.....they still do for Jeeps, but not Cruisers. Installed like a bikini, the sides/back were under the edges, then open when bad weather hit.

    Discontinued about a month prior to me ordering 2 years ago :cry:

    I have a custom upholsterer guy that I've used for canvas needs before . I was just hoping I could buy one of these $90 deals and make it work.

    I wish someone made a duster type deal for us too, coulda used it last night.

    when I am finished with my project I was planning on having an upholstery shop make one of these out of a tough boat type material. Anyone done this before and know how much it cost (roughly?). Please keep me updated on anyone having one made or making one, pics!

    thanks,

    Noah

    I have one of these. It was made by RockGear. I bought if from and LCML lister back in the spring and yet to install as I am currently body off. If someone is interested in taking the lead in getting a replica made up I can lend the top out for a few weeks as it is just sitting in the garage.

    I tried one made for a TJ on my cruiser this past weekend, it was way too small.
    I guess custom made is the way to go.

    Where do you live Alf? Wanna just sell it outrigh, hehehehe

    I am in Atlanta. Everything is always for sale but I doubt if you would like my price.

    Well Alf,
    you never can tell. I have alot of parts, do you need anything and want to maybe trade/ or just let me know what you'd take for it, the worse that could happen is I could fall over! :D

    old thread... new info.

    i recently have had some communications with RockGear and they told me that they do not have any proof that they ever made a top for the FJ's...

    I wrote back and told him that i know for a fact that they did and if all he needs is one to use as a pattern, we might be able to make that happen.

    i also informed him that we (FJers) are quite a large group and that I am sure a FJ top would sell well...

    i will keep you posted.
