    I have a 1st gen but my shell is open where it meets the cab. The boot keeps the water out, some drips through but it just drips onto the rear window, not into the bed. It's an awesome feature to have and really nice if you camp in your bed as you can just crawl through the window to reach anything. Also nice to be able to grab things at the end of the bed or while driving (rear passengers that is).

    One down side is over the years it has rubbed the paint off my cab. Kind of a bummer if I ever go shellless (like right now) but o well. I'm sure you can put a film or something on the cab to avoid this, my truck already came with the shell so the damage was done.

    Seems most replies here speak to the “seal” between the cab and canopy...

    Here’s an option for the front window.

    Snugtop has an option for a “fold up” front window. It folds up, into the canopy, and is held in place with gas struts. The kicker is that it has a handle that you can access from inside your cab, if you roll the back window down. You don’t have to crawl into the bed to open or close it.

    I’ve been shopping around, and just learned about this option the other day.

    Out of 3 main company’s snugtop is the only one that has that options. The person I spoke with said back in the early 2nd generation tundra models with the crewmax, Toyota had helped snugtop come up with the fold up window design so it works well with the crewmax window. So best option for easier access would be the snugtop with the optional fold up window. Just got mine the other day.

    Tundra1078, could you post some photos of that fold up window? The only one's I've found online aren't very good... I'd appreciate it!

    Attached is a picture of my brothers snugtop. I’m getting the exact same one.

    Can’t say for sure. I don’t have one of those stickers/stamps so can’t say if they do.

    Can you fold the window up from inside the cab with the rear window rolled down, or do you have to do it from inside the bed? Are you comfortable driving with the window folded up?

    Do you know what the premium on the fold up window was? This feature could really sway me towards the Snugtop.
