Are you running larger tires with stock gears and haven't re-calibrated your computer?

My wife called me from work and asked how to put the top down! She's been driving with top up and windows out because of the wind and "work hair". She quickly realized she needed to pull to the 2nd level of the parking garage because of ceiling height. She then wanted to try and put it back on by herself. Almost got it but couldn't get the front latches. I just installed the top a couple weeks ago and its tight and we're still getting t know it.

Not hating at all... But what parking garage are you going to that it cant fit a stock JK in? Tahoes and standard SUV's sit higher than JK's do.

I added my new club sticker for our offroad club! Check us out on FB if you're in the MD area

Snikt, it wasn't too bad to install, but I had to make the bracket first which took a few days of trial and error and then figuring out how to cut and bend the steel without metalworking tools. The compressor itself was a special of the day on Amazon and I got it for $49.99 I believe. Pretty good deal...However I took it wheeling today up near Idaho Springs, CO and when I went to air up after running the trails it was so hot just from being in the engine compartment. I mean it was scorching hot to the touch. I did air up and it worked fine. Now I know the value of having an AEV heat reduction hood.....

Me, too! Restored mine to "Like New" condition. Even my neighbor is perplexed by the amount of time I spend cleaning it. Yesterday, he said in his English-by-way-of-Pennsylvania accent, "You do realize that's a Jeep, right? It's allowed to be dirty." For the record, he has two beautiful Mini's that are ALWAYS clean.

My contention, "Mud is fine. Sexy, even. Pollen and bug guts? Not so much."

I stared at it for awhile and decided that the new Argent AEV Savegre wheels will look good on BFG. So, I started the process of having their 3.5 SC lift ordered and installed.
I guess I'll have the shop give me a quote for the wheels and 35" Duratracs while I'm at it.

What kind of cover is that for the back? Also how much do they run?

$41 that's pretty cheap, were you like 4mph over? They must be going for quantity not quality. Sucks either way tho.

37mph in a 25. It was $40 + $1 online payment/transaction fee. No points or record so it's not a big deal.

I think they just try to get as many people as possible but then also bank on people not paying on time. If you notice they got me on 3/4/12 and the ticket that came in the mail said it's due by 3/31 or a $59 late fee is added on. My guess is a lot of people don't pay on-time causing them to triple the money they take in.

I searched around and this was all I could really find to point out what they look like.



They are usually just mini-vans parked somewhere on the side of the road. They can be difficult to spot and they move from place to place so you can't really rely on them being in certain areas consistently.

There are a few "undercover" mini-van in the metro area here too. Devilish bastards.

Did they also take a picture or you rear end? If not, how did they know who to mail it to without a front tag?
