I have thinking bout getting on for my JKRU, however by the looks of it, it sits low in the roll bars. I'm tall and don't want that thing slapping against my head.

For those that have them do they sit low in the cab?

It's attached to the holster. The right place to put it.

Which one did you order? The deluxe or the normal one?

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger but would like to see more images.

I think you missed my point...

It's not a "clip". It is a "magazine".


The best place for it is in the pistol. Use the holster for the extra magazine.

Wanted a little width so I got some Rough Country 1.5" spacers. Not a fan of spacers and with my "pizza cutters" I sure didn't need them. Hub centric and $59 bucks a pair figured what the hell. Also instaled the recovery shackles and I will change the color on those tonight probably.

I asked you a simple question. i grew up in the hood, inner city, got by just fine without a gun over 20 years, it was just a question, don't post a fire arm pic sitting in plain view of your ride if you can't handle a question about it. Showing off a gun thats easily accessible to anyone who wants a piece of your ass isn't too smart. Good luck if you come across someone who wants it more than you do. Amen to that...

Yeah, I checked the site and did not see many specific images, just a lot of general/vague images. I'm 6'4" so my head is in the middle of the roll cage somewhere becuase of how high the seats in the JK are. My YJ has a bikini top that has plenty of clearance for me. The spider balls and shade do seem to hang a bit lower that the top though....it would been very annoying if my head was rubbing against that for along ride.

HiLift jack arrived today from Northridge4x4, tomorrow I'm off to Lowes to get some ubolts and so forth to mount this up to my rollbar at the tailgate. Anyone who thinks I'm paying $75 for a HiLift mount just to get the same $5 worth of hardware I can find locally has lost their freakin mind.

Can't wait, heading up to the Eastern Sierra Sunday night and going to take a run along the Laurel Lakes Trail sometime next week.

Guys and gals, a mod already gave 2 warnings about going down this road (off topic), just in case you may have missed it.

303 protectant works great. I use it on the flares as well as the top.

Took the dash apart to give the jeep a good deep cleaning. I'm getting ready for a photo shot for our calendar that we put on.
