Ordered on Tuesday and delivered today: Dietech Offroad relocation brackets from Dietech and a set of Best Top mirrors from Morris 4x4 Center. Great shipping time with standard shipping! Unfortunately, the weatherman is calling for rain this weekend. Looking forward to pulling the doors off and putting these to use.

Trying to figure out why the floor of my jeep filled with water after sitting in the rain for the past three days. Second year with the soft top and never leaked. Pulled the plugs, opened the doors and have an industrial fan blowing on it over night. Tomorrow the carpet comes out and maybe some bedlining is in order.

There are much worse things to be known for, you did an awesome thing and you deserve what COP4X4 are doing. Enjoy.

I've been watching that! I wondered if it was somebody here, but figured there was no way. Nice job! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Confirmed a vendor received my broken Lockpick...hopefully a new on will ship out tomorrow. Time to order a rear view camera.

I also received my Rugged Ridge light bar. I'll look at it some more tomorrow, but I might send it back (if I can get free return shipping through Amazon Prime) and order the Olympic version for $20 less. Odd that the Mopar, Rugged Ridge, and Olympic bars are almost the same, yet there is nearly a $40 price difference.

Take them out, make sure all the seals are laying where the are supposed to, then "HAND TIGHTEN" them back down to snug, NOT as tight as you can get it. If you do it to tight, it creates a gap between the freedom panels, and you get more leaks.

Loaded her up for a move and thought she looked a little fat so I made her get on the scale while I watched. But she pegged out at 5400lbs. She got mad when I called her tubby.

As a Oklahoman, I think it is a great story to follow among all the tragic events lately. As a fellow Crush Jeeper, I can't wait to see the finished build.

If non-OEM tint is used to match the factory tint, some years down the line, it will become apparent that the non-OEM tint has faded or changed color slightly.

But that's just my experience and YMMV.
The Ceramic tent and Carbon tents do not fade.

I hear ya. Took my top and doors off for Memorial weekend after having my JKU a freaking year and now I'm addicted but it's freaking boiling outside. I put it back on, but plan on taking the top/doors off but leaving the freedom panels so I don't fry.

Do you tighten them down? Around here, people "lose" them all the time (they get stolen off of parked rigs). Sticking a screwdriver through the hole in the flange on the end of the pin and giving it a quarter-turn or so past finger tight will stop them loosening and keep people from swiping them.

Decided to buy Loretta a present, so I ordered her a Viair 450-P automatic. Portable air with automatic stop and 100% duty cycle....sweet. Air down and inflate now easy. She needed this.
