So far l like it.
I would think the aerodynamics would bring exhaust inside when you don't have the side windows down. That air swirls around back there... Back towards the Jeep and the back window specifically.

It really reduces the buffet when the Freedom tops are off. Its not quite as good as running with the top completely off, but its a LOT better than having all that air get tangled up in the back of the truck then coming back to thump your ears.

I'm 6'2" and have plenty of head clearance under mine.

when freedom tops off, i just drive with the window open... it does get rid of wind noise, and gets better mileage on the highway

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.
How much did you pay for the jack if you don't mind my asking?

I'm waiting on my jack. I like the look of them mounted on the rear and upright. But I'm with you on not paying that kind of money. I think mine is getting painted to match the Jeep and mounted on the roof rack in the back.

OK. Just wondered. I've often thought that I wish it came out quickly like the doors. That would be nice

Yup, love that stuff.

I also use their fabric protectant on the interior. Seems to work really well.

That looks like my Body Armor bumper. Between it and the Roof Rack, the holes didn't want to line up right for me. I'm guessing you ran into alignment issues with just the bumper?

Hmmmm....I might. I'm in Belgium. The trailer hitches here come out from the bottom of the car, immediately turn upwards for about 9 inches, then end in a head. Got the picture? I've told my wife I was going to spend a Saturday going around and hanging testicles on the Euro cars with hitches on them.

Eh. I went out on the net and got you a picture.

Now that needs some nuts. I would grind a run around the top for that added detail.

A ring around the top is what I meant

It is a Body Armor rear bumper, I didn't order the spare tire holder bc I've read bad reviews about it, but this one was very simple to install. I just had to loosen up the big hex nuts in order to line up the others.

48inch all cast hi-lift was 89. Same prices as pretty much anyone else, however they have free shipping on anything over $100, so I added the off-road base for it, and a handle isolator - checked around and since nobody with similar pricing was offering free shipping, it worked out best with them.

I changed my stone guards...

Kept the black ones so when my Jeep's having a mood, I can change them up.
