Those Tuffy Bed Boxes are an interesting concept; I don't like how they don't sit flush with the bedrail, but interesting nonetheless. Kinda like RamBoxes for the Gladiator.

I wonder if Bestop has a legal agreement with FCA that prohibits them from marketing there own soft tops and or trail covers. If so how long do you think it is for. I'm guessing this is why you still see nothing for the JL's also.

I have no idea if they do or not. Just spitballing.

The soft top bed cab? They do not make one for FCA so they have no skin in the game. I was talking soft top and trail cover/rain cover.

I must be thinking of softopper then.
I do remember bestop teased a soft top bed cap here on the forums a while back.

No you are correct. Softopper is now owned by Bestop and they are coming out with a soft top bed cap.

I was referring to the soft top for the cab. Bestop makes the JK, JL and JT soft tops and I believe the Mopar trail covers also.

Curious about how much space is left between the boxes in the bed.

Can you tell if the rear has the Teraflex/Falcon 3.3 piggyback reservoir shocks as well? Maybe a pic if you can.
They keep saying they will have them immediately after SEMA.
Thanks

I'm always wondering how much the view on the trailcam is obstructed by these front bumpers with grill guards made for the JT.

Yeah, I was patiently holding my breath for SEMA hoping a fold down to the bed soft top version would show up. I will buy one if one ever shows up.

Maybe next year.
