i think you'll have to go for the m2 style, i think the main difference is it doesn't incoporate a harness bar

Call and ask Bethania. They do answer your calls.

Also, harness tabs are extra on the Hard Dog RBs.

I'm pretty sure all the M2 Hardcore bars come with tabs. If not I think they are $35. I'd give Tom a call and ask him specifically about the top on your car if it is aftermarket.

if its a zipped rear glass...wierd, what top is that? either way you should have to get a M2 bar...I have a zipperless robins glass window and I have the HDM2sport bar.

The HD M2 Sport bar will fit with the glass. I got the harness tabs at the same time, and the vinyl covered bar padding.

Why do people put M2 tops in their M1's?

I didn't know the DD model would still fit the glass window. That is neat.

i put the m2 top on for a few reasons:

first, you get a glass rear window that will lay flat on the rear shelf when the top is down.

second, stretching a new top over a frame takes a lot longer and is a farking PITA.

third, it looks better than an m1 top. the 'tailoring' at the back is a little tighter looking.

fouth, it's a bit cheaper if you know what you're looking for and is P'n'P with the M1s.

the M2 HDHCDD will fit with an m2 top. the m1 DD with a harness BAR will not.

I had read about the M2 tops, but never thought about doing it. I recently replaced the original top, top with tinted plastic window, rain rails and optional headliner kit was $400, and installation was $300. Maybe next time I'll investigate the M2 option since my rollbar will handle it.
