Looks good! How long did it take you to get them? I am still waiting on mine, it's been about a month so far.

I got caught in the rain with my top down for the first time!

Had to pull over on the interstate and frantically put the top back up, but I left the side windows at home so they wouldn't crease. I was amazed that the back didn't get that wet at all, but in another pay check (or two, or three) I'm going to buy one of those storage bags for the side windows so they don't get damaged by just chucking them in the back.

I'm debating whether or not I want to plastidip my wheels until I can order new ones... Anyone have pictures of 2013 Rubicon wheels plastidipped? Also thinking about the inside of my hardtop.

poly performance bolt upgrade kit for track bar and control arms installed.

factory holes were not wallowed out nor did I see any signs of damage after 8k miles, but I feel better knowing I don't have to worry about future issues.

Definitely not installed by the factory. 2014 JKUR with manual A/C. The first time I looked I thought I saw them but when I went back with a flashlight I realized I was looking at the white plastic baffle, not air filters!

Picked up the set of 2 from Quirkparts on eBay. $36 shipped. OEM. Does WIX 24302 come with two filters, or do you have to buy two of them?

I actually like the look of the stubby.

I place (throw) mine in the back all the time. Haven't gotten a crease that the sun hasn't taken out.

Thanks ... It's one of the few mods I've done that I didn't have to make fit.

Those look NICE! How much did they set you back?
They were 520 for the hole set. If you decide to order a set call and talk to Mitch and tell him your on the forum .... Fantastic customer service !

It took a month to get mine. And if you do custom stitching it is even longer but well worth the wait

Not today...but this week a lot was done to Lego.

Axles, gears, lockers, gussets, sleeves, brakes and rotors, head lights, antirock, dif covers, painted rims, painted headlight rings and Jeep logo, finished red inserts for fenders, repaired a paracord grab handle...its been a long week....I'm fighting to remember the entire list.

Removed top to give it a good clean. ..didn't quite get to it. Removed doors to refinish the handles...didn't get to those either. In the process of making grill inserts...halfway there. Havin far too much fun with this build. Now to finish breakin in gears to get her back offroad. This pavement is killing me!

Where is that thing? Behind the glove box? I looked through the owners manual and can't find a thing on it..

How much did it cost ?

Not really, it was a little tricky to get a nice texture. I used about 75 psi. Other than that it was pretty simple, it makes quite a mess though.

Picked up a used and cheap Best top combo. Still trying to decide what I think of it. I was more interested in the bed cover than the whole thing.
