With the Bestop half top one can leave the rear compartment open and so be able to transport tall items, in my case the fishing cart, the rods on a vertical rack, etc. As much room as the hard half cab really.
Off course when driving at highway speeds it would be prudent to close it again as the air flow over the open rear may present issues but in my case I'm only looking to drive to the beach at 30 mph and once there crawl over the sand dunes.
