That's some great info JeepBronco! I have given the connection from top to tonneau a lot of thought too. Squeaks are what will be the deciding factor on how to go. Like you, I have things pictured in my head but not quite right on drawings or anything yet. When talking of having the top sit on the tonneau it would need some sort of rubber gasket as well as quick lock system to hold them together. Just can't figure how to do it without it rubbing the hell out of each other and squeaking. If I get any other ideas I will bounce them off of you and see what we can come up with!
