This may have been in the old forum, however I certainly can't be the only one that is looking for a hard cover top for the Reeper? Not the bolt on diamond plate, but similar to the Jeeps, where you can pretty effortlessly remove it or put it back on.
I've googled it and no one has one. Anyone looking to make one any time soon on here? Beaver Off Road?
I did buy a nice used piece of 3/16 diamond plate today for $70.00. Found it on Graigslist,It's 43 inch by 46 got it cut out this afternoon. Need to put a bend in it and cut a little more on the front left & front right. Then paint it gloss black. The birds can't dump on me so easy.
3" lift, Supercharged 100hp, Water/Meth injection, Dynojet Power Commander w/autotune, SuperTrapp mufflers, 31/10.50/15 Cooper STT tires, K&N, PRP seats, BOR Walker Evans shocks, Flaming River rack & pinion, heater and a crap load of other improvements.
That web page comes up unavailable but there is a link in the search that takes you to a page it was created with ,www.wpbyexample.com/detail/paristxmotorsports.com, this shows a better side view of the Reeper and top. They have removed the roll bar. They do have a Facebook page.
:-[ It looks as if the hard top development has stalled. I can understand the issues with limited production runs. There is one on YouTube that looked very good that I didn't find on the forum. Try a YouTube search for "VLLN industries Reeper hard top part 1". I wish there was a part 2.

So it's been a long damn time since I've been around these parts of the woods. Just wanted to pop in and say hi to my reeper family. So many things have been going on I haven't even had time to ride mine in over a year. Sitting collecting dust.
UPDATE on the hard top : finally got the casting mold made for the top and removed all the design clay off the truck so it's actually drivable now. I'll probably have a working prototype with mounts ready by January. I'll post pictures along the way for you guys to see it. It's VERY unlikely these will ever go for sale unless I can find a shop that can reproduce them for me. But hey, who knows at this point.
Great, all good thing. You know how live just comes out of nowhere and smacks you in the face... that happened and between parents health and multiple kids under 3 and a real estate development project... oh yeah and the wife still needs quality time in between all that, it's been a crazy couple of years.
I've got a few new Reeper things going on so I'll be one here more often.

Hello all, new to forum and picked up a new sport a week ago or so. What do you think of this? All I did so far was just lay it up there. Looks promising to me. Now how do I add pictures...lets try this

Never thought of that angle, but because I'm from Washington it would make an awesome sled in the snow as well. So I finished it up today and met all my goals. 1. Cheap, the whole project was $90, 20 for the roof and 70 for hardware. 2. Secure enough for 50 MPH speed using original attaching points 3. Easy to remove, 2 wing nuts 4. Can be slid back if you want the sun to shine in Heres a link to the finished photos goo.gl/photos/62pNvNaTjUwAhpqo7
Also did a small mod to allow headlights to be aimed at the ground instead of birds, again on the cheap and a bit of kludge but it works. Heres a link to photos and a couple quick vids of that goo.gl/photos/P3AX1HYN78KJ5Rec8
The roof is from the "Club Car" brand golf cart, the 2 seat "Precedent" model. The top gutter drains to the rear things sticking down. Originally those went into the cart struts which drained water out the bottom of the cart. It is aprox 44" wide x 57" long. Single thickness except around the lower edge which is hollow and about 3/8 thick. The nice thing about this roof are the hand holds which are perfectly placed for this use and it rigidity due to design shape and ribbing.
