Well I'm in AZ and most of the time I'm wearing a suit and tie to work. Bad enough wearing that shit when it's 115F outside.

I got 2" all around. If you don't mind a stiffer ride, definitely do it.

My jeep gets tire shine when I can. Nothing wrong with shinning shoes once in a while.

Looks good.

Nice wheels - I am running 325/65/18 with a 2.5 inch lift. Do you have any rubbing issues with stock suspension?

I order my Trektop NX from 4 wheel parts. It was on sale for $650 and came with a free underseat storage box from Bestop.
Afterwards, I ran by the outdoors store and saw some self-adhesive camo tape for guns. Grabbed a free sample and wrapped my t-case shifter. Sorry for the bad phone pic

Stock suspension. Not with normal driving. The shop I went by said I need a lift before I try going off road.

Great idea. Do you have a pattern for the cover?

I got the idea from a few guys that made them for their JKU's.

No pattern but its really easy if you use cardboard (I used a large box) and mark and cut as you go until you have it fitting. Then trace onto board and cut out.

Just like the fact that no one will be able to see into the trunk area when the roof comes off in summer.

New Feet on the way

Been lurking for Wheels/Tires for a while. Pulled trigger from DTD today.
33x12.50R15 with MB Chaos 5 15x8. Hope it works out on my 2012 JK 2 DR. Feels like waiting on a new baby. Anybody in need of 17" Wheels and Tires in Houston area. Only have about 6K miles on them. If no takers, will try to put on Grandsons 97 TJ.

Does that cover have anything holding it down? That's an awesome idea. Just wondered if it could blow out

If you can retain that shelf (up/down) some how, it could keep the stuff below it safe. With the doors off and the gate locked, no one could get into that compartment.

Plastidipped the stock wheels. I think it came out pretty good.

You'd need to fashion a locking forward panel as well, otherwise someone could just tumble the rear seat and get in from the front side...

That could be. I was thinking that the seat may not be able to rotate forward with the panel in place. Or, maybe there is a way to lock the seat down. I may have a new project coming up
