Got my custom, one of a kind hard top put on. Note the rear windows are sliders. And from what I found, there is not another top like it anywhere, beings mine is a prototype.

It came with the Jeep, when I bought it. The top was made by Glassline Inc. in Redding, CA as a prototype for Best-Top. However Best-Top opted not to use it for one reason or another.

Looks like you can only use factory soft uppers with it though

And that may be why Best Top opted out

Added Spidertrax wheel spacers to my 16" Jeep Cherokee rims. Very pleasantly suprised with the result. Cleaned fuel pressure regulator. Helped a friend replaced thermostat in his YJ.

Nothing exciting today. It was nice outside I drove to work. I got to work and realized I had left my laptop at home. So I drove home, picked up my laptop, and then took the front top of the JKU. Then drove back to work in a good mood. The tops haven't gone back on yet.

That is my accomplishment for the day.

drove it around the block(as a front wheel drive). the rear drive shaft is removed, so I put it in 4H just to take it for a spin. I was desperate for a topless Jeep ride.

Installed a new turn signal flasher to rid myself of the "fast flash" from the LED install.

When doing an install of any sort from notes on this forum, youtube vids, instructions etc....I seem to always go through this process...never fails.

1. Pre mod: Oh, I can do that, it doesn't look that difficult.
2. During mod: WTF? I've read, attempted, read, attempted.
3. The Ah-ha part of the mod: Oh, so that's how it's supposed to go, now the directions make perfect sense.
4. Post mod: How did I not understand to begin with, why do all my mods take 500% longer than everyone states it took them....I must be an idiot.
