I believe their purpose is so that when you go topless the metal rings don't flap against the roll bar and make a metal to metal (or is it metal to plastic?) tapping noise. I used to peel them off when putting the hard top back on but it is kind of a pain in the *** to slide a hand under there and get them off. So I just poked right through them with the freedom top bolts and leave them on now.

Looks good though.
It was on my list but I forgot to add it to the cart when I bought the mount. It's in my cart already for my next Amazon order.

Put on a spare tire cover. Hope this will stop the black stains on the rear bumper. As a plus,it looks good.

Also plaati dipped my EZ pass black so that ugly white thing wouldn't be on my windshield.

Got her semi-naked and took her to Canyon Lake. It was a beautiful day here, though a bit warm. It hit 97 on the thermometer on the way home. I didn't care, I had the "no tops, no doors, 70 mph" air conditioning on!

How's it sound? I really like gibson, but on my old 2004 Dakota I did a cat back and it was much louder than expected and droned on the highway, so I have been hesitant to put it on my jeep.

Wrong thread -

And when you post a new thread or find another one that is more appropriate, please provided details of any modifications you might have done that would help people get ideas how to help you. Its hard to guess without details. Could be lots of things.

Accessory Power

Installed the JK Accessory power tap from CFE Products. Lots of disassembly to install, but ends up really clean, no wires hanging out, no hacking, nice and factory like with 12v/7 amps available...

Don't know if this will help but I installed a lift and changed out shocks and springs. Not long after I was getting a noise in my driver rear and couldn't figure out what it was. Bothering the p!ss out of me. So I had someone bounce on the bumper while I listened and ended up being the shock at the lower bolt connection. Wd40 and it disappeared finally. Hope that helps. I could only hear it when I was going slow over bumps with my windows down. But it was a rattle/squeak noise.

We took the doors off and enjoyed the day with DieTech brackets and BestTop mirrors. The setup works great and no vibrations. The kids enjoyed watching the road go by.

Had a great fathers day. Went to the lake where all of water toys are. 80' Lakeview House boat, 21' pontoon and an old 1986 Ski Nautique 2001. Went wake boarding, skiing and all the other stuff you do on the lake. On the way there and on the way back had a very successful Jeep wave day. I would say an up 90% wave back day. Everything from a CJ, YJ, TJ and a bunch of JKs got in on it today...including a really cool 10a Rubicon. I saw more JKs today than I have seen in a long time. It was an incredible day for it.

Felt brave today and put a freedom decal on the hood. I really like the look of this freedom star on other JKs. So I put it on myself. Not bad for a first time decal applier.

I drove it back from Bantam, where we had a great time. Put my super deal scratch and dent Body Armor doors in the corner of the garage until the mirrors arrive on Tuesday. Then installed my new Bestop passenger side lockbox I picked up as well so now I have double the storage.

That looks awesome! You did a great job. It's a big decal so it must have been challenging. Nice work.
