Hope you post some pics of that! I wants to do it but I have never done anything like that so I'm not exactly sure where to get started. Maybe if I see someone else do it, it will help.

My phone is always in the mount since the only music I listen to is Slacker radio.
I gotta get me one of those. I killed my last mount when it got caught under the seat when it slid forward. I'd like to start using my phone as a GPS and to play music over Bluetooth.

Got an entire soft top set up for $200. In great shape, no tears or rips and windows arent all scratched to hell. Also painted my headlight bezels and rear license plate holder with krylon fusion.

Yeah my last one just didn't seem made for a Jeep. My phone would fall out sometimes and it was really jittery. The heavy duty one really does the job well though!

Not a mod but I thought I would give the mod people a heads up.
The Big Lots by my house had this deal. You may want to check yours.

Who makes the best engine skid. Want quality, strength, and a reasonable price. I was thinking of going with skidroad.

Protection and reasonable price don't go in the same sentence. That being said. Savvy makes the best. Undercover fab being second. Rokmen being third.

One thing that drove me crazy was the elastic that held the rolled up back window. Always looses it's elasticity. Took them off, trimmed them so the rear one was 1 1/2 the length of the front. Got the wife to sew velcro on them and used remaining elastic as pull strips for the end. Works great! No more slouching rear window after a few miles!

Yea I know but it is in the roof where the support bar is. The leak is the stitching around it. Already tried duct tape.

Actually just put the top on for the first time bought it in Sept and Jeep had hardtop on but came with soft top too. Its an 06 Jeep si the top can't be too old plus it has no tears. Seemed to be in good shape till it rained do all tops leaks a little in heavy rain

If they all leaked I could not have bought a Jeep. I have an 06 and it is still raining almost everyday here in Seattle. I haven't been able to take the top off at all since I bought it

You live in Seattle.. You'll have two days a year that it's sunny enough to drop the top,
