"Almost done" does that mean you can see the bottom of the list?

Yeah Mark, I actually can...it's about 6 more things. The auto swap was the last big one. Now if I could stop adding to the list, I just might finish...

Jeeps are never finished, they're just "in between" the next new trick mod that's available.

Yep, that's about it...and then your store will open and my list will go from 6 to 60 faster than a jeep will

Bill that's my problem, when I do one thing then I see 5 other things I want to do also. It is almost like chasing your tail. But damn it's fun.

Stan, it sounds like you have a horse in this race. BTW, how about opening a store in HB?

I have long term plans that will make our out of town fans happy. Not saying tomorrow, but I've got plans.

I'll just have to exercise some patience then.

Another question for you Stan. I'm thinking about reducing some weight from my rig, and taking off the hard top and going to a fastback like the Offroad Hero or TREK NX or . Do you have an opinion as to which fastback is of the highest quality?

Bestops reputation and experience with jeep tops is top notch, but...I'll be installing the off road hero cargo on my JK soon, and will have a full report from install, to noise, leaks, and any other issues. I like the idea of having the top convertible to other configurations.

But how often do you stack gear all the way to the roofline? Sometimes, looking cool trumps utility. Lol

Curious what you think of it, I was looking at a thread on it the other day.

I'm totally undecided on a top. I like the versatility of the Trek NX because it seems to be the easiest to take off, but not crazy about the fastback look. I like the way the ORH looks.

Anytime you rock the Rubicon, but if you a just a day tripper no-worries, looking cool is a priority.

Yeah. If I'm Rocking the Rubicon, or anything hundreds of miles from home, I'm taking the top off, and piling gear above the cage as well. Lol.

I prefer the looks of the ORH, but the stories on JKO about shipment delays etc. are a concern. I'm going to wait until the spring anyway so hopefully by then Stan will have his and some feedback.

Right now I doubt if my Hardtop will ever come off. Maybe the doors when we do Moab but not the top.

That's a good idea too. Keep the hard top, and install lightweight doors when I wheel.

Now for some more research.

You could always cut the roof and install a large piece of lexan in the cutout. Most likely about a grand to do it cleanly.

I read that too. Also read that they leak in significant rain, ok in light rain. Unclear if the leaking has been fixed in the current model.

When the weather was nice in the spring and fall last year, it was really nice running with no hard top and just my spiderweb shade. I noticed a difference in the handling on and off road without the top. Seemed to handle easier and not as top heavy.

Main problem for people with the hard top though is that it's a pain to remove. Easy with two adult men. Not so easy for my wife to help me with it. Too bad there's not a way to cut the rear into two pieces.

Probably around 100 - 150 pounds or so. The problem isn't the weight though, it's the bulkiness of it.

My wife can help me take it off, it's just difficult for her. However, she's too cheap to pay for a hoist. She'd rather help me remove it every time. I've removed it 5+ times with her help.

I've read a few people have removed by themselves. I wouldn't try that though.
