Anyone have pics of STC top folded down?

Post by nybronc » Thu Jan 19, 2006 8:10 pm

I'm trying to get a better sense of what an STC Fast Track soft top looks like once it's been folded down. I am planning on buying one soon, but I can't seem to find any good pics showing how the top looks once it's folded down onto the tailgate. Actually, I'd like to see a sequence of photos showing the top as it is being folded down, and a final pic of the top on the tailgate. I am partly interested in seeing this because my spare tire is mounted inside, on the tailgate, rather than outside, on a swing-away tire carrier. I want to see what kind of clearance/interference I can pretty much expect.

Anyone out there feel like shooting a few pics and posting them here?

Thanks!

I've got that top. But I don't have a camera. If you have your spare mounted between the tailgate and rear seat, the bars will not lay flat across the back due to the fabric bunching up agaist the tire. I don't recline my top down, just remove the windows and keep the top up.

I don't have a sequence set of shots , but here's mine folded down.
I have a couple of storage boxes on either side that the tops sets on , then I just bungee the top down in place.

Hope this gives you some idea:

Are you pissing in your tire? I've heard of people using water in there tires for more unsprung weight but never saw how it got installed.

RT -

That's just the kind of shot of the folded down top I was looking for.

Based on what Shawn seems to think is happening in the shot, here's a link you might need to check out (LOL):

Hey Mick..

The soft top gets packed up for the winter and the hard top goes on around late Sep - Oct . I'm such a wussy , wanting to be warm and dry and all.. :P
I'm much better suited for a area like ,,say,,,, oh... Hawaii .. !!! :lol:
Yeh,,,,I'm just a little jealous...

It's my only Driver..My pickup was collecting too much dust just sitting around , so my freind owns it now .

The top's not bad in the rain , although I wish they'd use a little more material at the back corners . They leave a gap. Same at the doorpost's.

It's easy too take off and put on so when the weather get's warmer here I can take advantage of the odd nice days here. :)

Oh yeh , it's a STC fastrack.
