Default BDC Soft Top

Has anyone tried the BDC soft top from Softopper.com? Looking for a review before I drop $1k.

Went ahead and picked one up. Fits good, works good. A little time consuming to install. Will not be the quick on and off I was hoping for but definitely nice to have the top back and rear window out on a whim.

It looks cool. What do you think now that you have had it a couple of weeks? How long does it take to remove the soft top? Noisy on the highway?

Quality is good. I'm in southern CA and it's been pretty hot of late so the black soft top isn't ideal. I haven't removed it yet but I'm planning on doing that this weekend to go back to my hard top until it cools off a little more. I'm guessing it will take 30-45 min to remove and get the HT back on. Road noise is equal to any other soft top except quite a bit of noise comes up between the bed and cab. I took a large blanket, rolled it up and stuffed it down along that edge behind the seat. Made a huge difference in the noise from that area. Wind noise is about the same as any other soft top across the windshield. There are a few places where some 1/4" single side sticky foam between the supports and vibrating top would make a big difference. I will add those when I put it back on next time.

Now that you have had the top for awhile longer, what are your thoughts?
