So to give a little back story, my wife and I are expecting our first baby in Oct. and she has gone on the whole make everything safe kick, which I agree with... However, she has turned her eye to my Jeep and wants me to put my hard top back on, so I was wondering if anyone has installed a sun roof on their hard top or knows of a good brand, so I can keep that sun light coming in... I know these guys make one SFC/CRL Sunroofs



Hope to hear some ideas... Thanks, Wes

Im no expert, but if you were in an accident with a hardtop, wouldn't it just shatter and shoot plastic and glass all over you and your newborn? Seems like a softop would be just as safe.... Maybe they don't shatter on impact, I don't know, just an idea?

Why not just make her car the designated baby car? Until it gets cold (I'm assuming you use the hard top in winter if you have one) then just run it like you normally would.

No I already have an LED flasher installed but I imagine that you wouldn't get and fast blinking since they don't actually do any blinking and just turn on when in reverse.

I just searched 1156 white LED and they came up. Gimme a few minutes and I'll post a link to the ones I purchased.

Edit: Link as promised. Ordered from this seller since they ship from the US and not Hong Kong. Figured shipping would be quicker http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=63376222738

Well what I can tell you is that the hardtop will not help one bit protecting you in an accident. Like it is said on the top itself : "The top on this vehicle is only intended for protection against the elements and is not designed to keep occupants in the vehicle or protect occupants in case of an accident". My boy rides with me in my Jeep on a daily basis as I pick him up from school. I have a softtop on. The only downside is that I need to keep the softop windows on at all times when he is in the Jeep.

you have no idea how hard it is to decide lol
but its def between tan and od green, if i do tan roll bar, then im painting the sound bar green and vise versa. i have a feeling the light bar will be best green, i dont want it to stick out to much, the lights them selves can be tan

I have thought about making my roll bar red. I think it would look real good on the black jeep.

Mine covers are fading pretty bad. There is a write up somewhere that someone painted the covers.

If you find it let me know. Need to do something with mine. Dupli color makes a vinyl/fabric paint. Not sure how it holds up though
