Rampage Top Owners, fitment question

Does anybody have a pic of one of these tops from the inside, front seat area?
I am looking at which top to get. I like the bestop, but really like the idea of a place to store the windows.
Problem is I run a overhead console that might get in the way of bows if they come down any lower then the stock hard or soft top do.

Couple pics of the console, think it will cause a problem?



Thanks

Also will this top work with my Bestop windshield channel or will I need the rampage one?

Front seat looking straight up? I'll snag some pics in just a couple minutes for you.

I'm not positive but I think you'll be good. I don't have a tape measure but for reference I took these pictures with my iPad 2 and the supports are wider than my ipad2 is long. About 2 inches longer than my iPad. The overhead console may go right between them. If it doesn't I think you still might be fine. Hopefully someone is running a similar set up to you and can chime in.

It should work fine, I also have the Bestop header and I haven't had any issues.

It will work with the Bestop header, and the support bars can be removed if they don't fit. In fact I would remove them anyway because the overhead console will provide the same suport as the support bars.

I would be more worried about the fact that it doesn't look like the front tension strap can be used with the center console.

Put a footman loop on the console and hook it to that. I think it would look cleaner in the long run.

Yeh, that is the plan. It was made so that the footman loop can between the CB and the back panel. I will just have to shorten the strap.

The center strap comes around the bottom of the roll bar to the footman loop, correct?


Thanks for the input guys.

Chris, thanks for taking the time to shoot a couple pics for me.
I do appreciate all the help.

Yes it does.

Its an awesome top and alot quieter than others that Ive had. Looks like it will work with that console you have there just fine.

I'm also running the same bestop headers and its all working just fine.

Ran it as the brief top today and it is way quieter than my smittybilt extended brief and tonneau cover. First time with the windows out and stored up top. I seriously love this top and wish I got it sooner!
