    Did you find a set of original wheels?
    I bought those 15' x 7" OEM's from a forum member here 3 years ago. Gave $300 for them and there's a set on CL locally for like $800

    Well after calling customer support, A.K.A. Randyzzz, the full soft top is on. He suggested that the top be a warm, 90* or so and it'd fit like a glove. Here are a few pictures of the process and the finished product.

    So much more room that the 1/2 cab. I'm a short 6'-3" and that dang thing was claustrophobic. Much more room in the full top. Mounting rear F&T seat tonight for the dwarfs and installing their seat belts when the brown truck brings them. Hopefully in time to pick them up from school.

    Wow, that turned out great!

    I keep going back and forth as to what I want to do with my top. I really dig the pickup look... but I, too, am long-legged, and just a little bit more room would make me a lot more comfortable!

    I'll be watching Kim Dawson's "extended cab" build pretty closely, when it comes time to build the cab!
    Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader...!

    As for the back seat, are you using the original location, or are you going to set it back a bit?

    Thx for the compliments. Roscoe1974 was nice enough to text me the locations of the factory captured nuts for mounting the back seat. Since I replaced my bed floor with one from Classic Enterprises there are no provisions for rear seat. I plan to locate it approximately where factory location was.

    FYI-FYI the Classic Enterprise's bed floor DOES have 3 captured nuts for seat belt anchorage. I used these and set the F&T seat where I thought it should go and fastened her in. THE KIDS LOVE IT! I picked them up from school today and they both said to take the long way home, WIN for Dad! I was also requested to drop them off in the morning, 2 for 2! Here are the install pictures. Also think I'm going to dye my vinyl seats for now. LMS Seats has leather manual bucket seats for $300 a pair, that's about what the Bestop cheap seats are...........

    Ah, you removed the bulkhead... that's what was on my mind when I asked about seat placement.

    Looks great!

    That looks fantastic! The Kayline has much better lines than the Bestop.
