...if they don't get back to you by the time it comes in, I'll let you know.
Looks like we'll need to put together a list of questions for you! haha
Also slap a tape measure from the forward bed rail to to the top of the forward bow, if you can.

So if I’m reading your website correctly, this isn’t available in Black Twill to match most softops? That was the biggest selling point for me. If I’m correct, I’m out

From what I've read, it's coming, just not released yet

@Bestop does this window panel open at all? I know the corners provide structural resistance to the frame, and in other trucks it doesn't really matter, but I use my soft top in "Safari" mode or just with the back panel out a lot in the summer, and access through here would be really nice... Not a sealed pass through like a lot of folks want, but just this forward window open.
@Bestop I would like to know this as well please.

I got mine in over the weekend. The front window does not come out.

I also took measurements once I installed it, but I don't remember exactly what they were. I think it was 22.5" from the front rail to the top of the first bow and ~23.5" for the middle two bows. I'll double check today after work.

Sorry for the delay in answering these questions. I was out at EJS last week. The forward window at the cab is not removeable.
The Twill is coming soon but not available for order just yet.

Bummer. That was one of the things that sold me on the Softtopper.

Might there be any plans to make the forward window openable or removable? It makes sense for a number of reasons:
1) Access to main cabin
2) Heat dissipation whilst rest of canopy is closed.
3) Relative increased security whilst rest of canopy is closed.

@Bestop

could you throw us the install directions? They’re not on the website yet and im danger close to my deadline to get either the bestop or the softtopper.

my curiosity is how tall the rails are that sit on the bed. They seem overly tall to me but look okay with the tonneau.

im also curious how the topper connects to the trail rails

im almost sold on the bestop, just want to be %100 before I drop $1k + on the top and tonneau combo.

Or are you looking for dimensional drawings?

I'm thinking the easiest way is to buy the top then head over to a marine cover place and have them make it removable with a zipper. I would prefer if it came that way though.

Because of this, I am thinking of going with a bed rack and having a whole cover made.
