Hey Badrobot did you buy just the hardtop or a trailer with a hardtop on it.
I've been looking for a top like this for a few years. Do you mind me asking how much you paid for it and from which base you picked it up.

Thanks

I purchased just the hardtop. I picked it up from Nellis AFB, NV.

Someone asked me about my license plate holder. Here it is how I did mine. Since I am not a welder and I don't have welding machine. I just used scrapped aluminum, nuts, bolts and license plate light that I had. It almost costs me nothing.

Looks like the tag bracket is unsupported on that one side.
Two bolts through the cargo tie down and nothing the other side.

If you pull that trailer enough, even that small amount of unsupported weight will cause metal fatigue towards the supported side.
Not to mention it will bounce as your driving. Which is what will eventually cause the failure.


Install looks great.
Support the other side and it will be rock solid.

When you say $$ do you really mean $$$$$$$$$$$? Or just $$? Can you quantify? Just idea of price range of new one. They look really cool.
You will have to call and find that out yourself.
I'm sure they're not cheap.
But they look very well built.

They do not offer one for the M101A2-3 trailers. This company anyway
If they did, I would own one.
