Default Canvas top for cab

Who makes the best top, with all the snaps, for the M715?

I really like the top I have from WeeBee Webbing, http://www.odcloth.com/products.html I have had my top since 2005 when I built my truck and it still looks like the day I bought it. Granted I store my truck inside and roll topless most all of summer.

Surplus City makes a good top. They had the best price when I was shopping around, about 5 years ago.

The rain gutter is different between the two tops those companies make, I believe WeeBee makes the correct style, you may want to consider that and not make a decision based on price.

Correct, Weebee's is made using an original copy of the blueprints and may be a bit more expensive, but the quality is that much higher.

I agree on the quality of Weebee webbing's canvas quality . They are not the cheapest but the best is never is . They are also a member of the MVPA.

My truck is outfitted with WeeBee canvas also. Great products.

I'm within an hours drive to WeeBee Webbing.
Dave and Donna gave my wife and I, a tour of their shop + seeing all of Dave's toys. My favorite was the PBR Patrol Boat.

The Surplus City top, the rain gutter is in the wrong position, it starts way up near the top corner and runs on an angle to the back. It looks kind of odd when you see it on the truck. The Weebee Webbing top, the rain gutter runs parallel to the top of the window frame and then tapers off after the window.

Also after going to look at the Surplus City top again, it is also lacking the flap on the inside rear of the cab that helps seal the top to the back of the cab and keep drafts from coming up from under it.
