    Pop Top roofs

    This is the kind of info I'm looking for ! There are a lot of options available, but only very few real life usage reviews. If the fancy one breaks or has defects in the field, and the basic ones don't, then I'm happy to live with (in) a basic one ;) Hi Wout, I know that truck and would love...
