Well i just chopped off the top on my 4runner last night and am getting ready to start meshing together the top piece and cutting the back 14" after work tonight.

I chopped mine yesterday, it looks great but I am having trouble making the "bed rails and edges" look decent

I am thinking about putting a truck cab rear section in place complete with sliding rear window (I have a totaled 00 tacoma to play with) and then making a canback set up type cover for the rear.

im afraid it would look like a ridgeline..... UGGGGGGGHHHHHHHh i think it would be sweet to just get maybe the 2wd rear side glass or something from some other place... and stick the regular 4runner tailgate back on so there is like a 1 foot cargo area

Wow... chop and bob indeed.

Looks pretty good. Do you plan to close in the back or just leave it open?

Did the back end come up just because of all the weight taken off?

Heres an Idea Cap it in in Checkerplate

These pic's where taken when I was redoing the floors in bed liner. But you'll get the idea





I run a soft top in the winter or when it rains. Here its half on half off
