    I wouldn't mind a soft top. But not sure how water proof it would be here.

    Softtoppers don't leak. It will seal better than your hard top.

    Here we go again. There should be a sticky for the "Blazer Soft top" where all this information that keeps coming up can be put and we can refer newbies to that link. Leakage, fit, price, where to buy, ease of use, is Skyler still making soft tops, when is Best Top going to start making them, etc. keeps coming up. Im all about helping people out, but it does get redundant.

    Yes sticky.

    And yes they keep the water out. Even here in the PNW! My hard top leaks and I want a softropper to avoid that issue. Also 300lbs lighter than a full vert.
