Hard Top via Fat Fabrications just installed.

This required a fair amount of fiddling, but ended up pretty square.
Took the better part of the day and with help. Elephant ears go on
next but that's easy.

I will be mounting two 50W solar panels on the roof to keep the LiFePO4
battery topped off. Inside I will be insulating the roof and adding an
overhead console for radios and instruments -- that all comes later. I
have had enough mod's, time to hit the trails.

Loving following your build Ron, it’s looking great!
We have done many of the same mods I have just been slack on posting my progress.
I want to get a hard top on mine too, initially just the front but eventually the whole length. unfortunately I’m in Australia so will have to sort something out locally.

Fabricated a mounting bracket for a pair of 50W Solar panels.
There's a "bow" on the mount to conform with the bow in the
roof. A total of 100W is about the maximum you can get over
the roof of the cab but that's plenty to keep my LiFePO4 battery
topped off. I may run the power leads down the Antenna mount
later, for now they go in under the rear curtain.
