Frameless Soft Top
 
I have fallen in love with Viking Offroad's Fast Back Top. I was wondering if anyone else shares my opinion? http://vikingoffroad.com/viking_fastback.html

I'm with ya on that top. They just started shipping them last week. Everyone I've spoken to (online) seems really pleased with the quality of them. I haven't seen one in person yet but I'd like to see for myself.

It really seems like the perfect top for me with the way it functions. Hopefully after I get a few other projects knocked out I'll be able to get one on my rig.:D

Wow, I gotta say, I love that top. Darn, this is going to place above some things on the wish list.....why do you guys have to show me this stuff ?

Scout 12-07-2006 06:07 PM

I guess it's better than blowing our money on drugs or cheap...well...you know what I mean. :D

i have to get a soft top next summer (this coming summer) so maybe this is the one to get.

Scout 12-07-2006 09:54 PM

bigjeep, that is EXACTLY what I'd get if I were you. It's a soft top and a full bikini top all in one.

mrbigjeep 12-07-2006 09:56 PM

holy smokes, it is?! i didn't read anything about it. i just looked at the pictures. its not much more expensive than a normal softop so i should definitely get that. i'm gonna search that site some more and see if there is anything else i would need to buy to go with it or if that includes everything. that thing looks sweet too. i'd be the only one in my city with one of those. that will be a nice compliment to my jeep.

Scout 12-07-2006 10:06 PM

All you need is a Bestop windshield channel. If you look on their site there are more pics of the top folded up into the storage pocket.

Yall have fun running those Jeeps around with the tops on. I think I'll put my money towards something else.

amy 12-07-2006 10:12 PM

Oooh, I want one too! I need a soft top for the summer months and that would be perfect.

i gotta have a soft top anyway. its so much easier to take off (down) than my hard top. i'm not drivin in the rain with the top off and since i have a hard top i can't go out when it rains because its so difficult to get the hard top on. so im gettin the softy for the summer and leave it down except when it rains i can flip it up much faster and easier.

Scout 12-07-2006 10:13 PM

Well everyone can't be hard core like you. :D

When it's 20 degrees outside, I'm riding with a top. Being cool isn't having snot frozen to your nose and tears streaming down the side of your face. :flipoff: 20 degrees = top.


(I crack myself up)

sooooo, I was wondeing what that was on your face :rolleyes:

Scout 12-07-2006 10:17 PM

BTW & FWIW - We did run Palo Duro last year with just a bikini top. Not a full bikini either. It rained the whole time we were there, hailed twice and it never got above 55(ish) degrees. The guy in the back was bailing (sp?) water out the whole time with a red dixie cup. I'm sure jeeptales has a few pics of that somewhere.

amerijeep 12-07-2006 10:17 PM

I'm running my top this time of year, but I wouldn't invest in a new one. Stays laying in the weeds too much.

mrbigjeep 12-07-2006 10:18 PM

That's gross. i'm way to good lookin' for that to ever be the case.

Scout 12-07-2006 10:24 PM

^^^no, it's snot all right.

Can we wreck a thread or what? :flipoff: :D

NWilhelm 12-16-2006 04:30 PM

i wanna get it cause i dont have a soft top, just a hard top. so summer months i will rock this bad boy. hopefully it will come in soon.

Scout 12-16-2006 04:32 PM

Man I hope you do get it. PLEASE post up if you do so we can drool over that thing. :D

activelydying 12-16-2006 04:43 PM

that thing is freaking nice. i want one. i need one.

bluvikng 12-16-2006 08:51 PM

I saw the proto-type in Moab last May, and I was very impressed with it. I just can't believe that they have taken this long to start shipping them. It is by far, the handiest, easiest top to have. You can go from hot, and opened, to closed up against t-storms, and other inclement weather. I had a regular safari top on in CO, in Sept. and got mud and rain all inside our Rubicon. Not fun to clean up all that mess.

NWilhelm 12-25-2006 03:02 PM

i snagged one for xmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
