two hours a lot of cursing and a few tears (because i had to drill holes in the bko, and the top was mounted. about an hour this morning and its stretched out and in place. got what a PITA. allready there are a few things that i would like different besides that fact that i have clear windows, i wish that the side windows rolled up like they advertised. and i wish it fit a little better but it is what it is. oh year and having to roll the fabric around the plastic to get it in the channel was a PITA too but all in all i like it now that i have done my little rant her are a few pics i snapped

Nice. If you haven't tried already, you might be able to find an upholstery shop to make you some tinted windows for your soft top. My jeep has a soft top, and I always get my windows repaired, instead of buying new. The cost difference is considerable. $100.00 for repair, versus $400.00 for new. There must be a company that makes tinted plexiglass window material as a cut to fit deal, so the upholstery shop can cut the plexiglass, then sew it into the canvass window body. Airplane windows are plexiglass too.

yeah it was nice and much easier to put on but you couldn't put any one in the back seat if you wanted too if it started to rain so that part sucked i was not very excited about how much drilling there was either but its over and done now and i can always weld them shut if i want to later. after being on there for a few weeks i'm not that impressed with it either but it serves its purpose. cant wait for the slow season, after deer and duck, are over, then its time to herculine the front half and replace the last of the rotted body mounts, maybe the fenders and tailgate. maybe ill build some bumpers as well

You should get some better quality pics. I've been wondering what the soft top would look like on my black bronco and from those 2 lil pics it looks SEXY on the black ones.

If you don't mind, would expand on what things about it do you dislike?

the back corner on the drivers side pops off if i try to lock it in, the 2 pieces rail system they use is kinda getto , All broncos are one size the bed rails never changed ect... the top is a Pain In the Ass to do by your self, the back window is also a PITA to get secured, idk maybe i'm just bitching but for the money its pretty shottly made. the zippers have already pulled from the wrong side on me once. blah blah blah.

I have the original STC fast track soft top and have to agree with you because it can be a real pain at times.

I wish they would make the one that has the snaps like i had on my '79. I could put it back up in like a minute.

i still have my skyline but i thought that was a pita oh how i was mistaken, the thing is growing on me i will probably still put my hard to p back on for the winter, not that we have alot of snow but we have alot of wind and dont want tree branches ruining my top.

well i have been dealing with the smell of fuel for far too long, i finally broke down and bought a new fuel tank... decided it was time to put it in so i cleaned the new tank and gave it a coating of Chassis saver which is an awesome product may i add. and put that sucker in last night, took me about 1.5 hrs only because when i was doing all the body work i had already removed the tank once should have replaced it then but ... such is life

well i did it i got me a brand spanking new tailgate. the way i figure it if i'm gonna lift it and such i might as well have the body ALL squared away, i have a doner truck for fenders and doors so i'm not worried about them till inspection time, but i'm gonna post the process of the new tailgate install. started roughing the primer inside to accept the chassis saver which i will do two coats of on the inside and one on the outside before primer. should make a nice seal. well here's the first pic. many more to come

well it's sanded ready for primer. but I have to test fit it because it may need a little bit of customizing so it fits properly trimming one side and re welding it so the gaps are correct. when I put the back half together the right top was in 1/4 inch in and I didn't realize it was too buisy trying to get it back together. will post pics later

well i've had a lack of ambition for the tailgate because of the cold and lack of a second set of hands to help test fit it.
But tonight i installed the new head unit that i got for x mas from my friend here are some pics after the install


its a jensen vm 9414 the thing is pretty sweet. i will get some better pics in the daylight tomorrow but was excited to get it in its a major improvement over the Rat shack kenwood that i had to put in there when i got the BKO.

Yea I know what you mean with JBG soft tops. I've had the chance to look over a few of them and was not impressed at all. Seems like it was designed and built by a bunch of retarded Chinese kids, and not a company that "knows" Broncos. But then again, nothing is impressive about JBG so I'm not suprised. I can't believe they are a vendor on here.

Yea if you need it, you need it. I needed some stuff when I was building a Bronco 2 with a 74 Bronco axle. What a nightmare, and customer service is absolute shit. I am running a RC 6" on 36 13.50 15 Swamper IROKs.
