what made it take a couple hours of work? on my 89' bronco all you had to do was take 10 bolts off and get another guy to help get the top off. 10 minutes at the max to do.

It took a while cuz i had to take the seatbelts off...took the rear seat out...did some other crap...it took 15 mins to take the top itself off...a while for all the prep work...almost took out the carpet...but decided against it...also did some stuff for my stereo while i was at it..ill try to get pics before too much longer...no digi and don't wanna pay to have film developed.

Congrats! Topless is the way to go! I still miss my '90 K5 every now and again (but don't miss the problems I had with it) :flame: My Avalanche comes pretty close though with the midgate down, tonneau off, sunroof open, and windows down :rocking: Enjoy the days of cruising topless!! :head: :head:

Or, do what I did- get a bit for your cordless drill! High speed, and you'll have the bolts out in under a minute :rocking: Kinda fun pretending your on a NASCAR pit crew too... :anitoof:
