It does look good, I would just take care that the oil doesnt run down your Jeep and dry into the paint.

The denim pretty much sucks it up like its spent 3 weeks walking the Sahara. I've applied it thrice now in between rain and washes and has yet to bleed off on the tube.

I bought one of those, two piece hardtop ... thinking it would be easy to take the front part off when I wanted kinda top down. I spent $3000 on that top, and had it installed "professionally." It squeaked like a mf. Right above my ear like an old time styrofoam cooler, squeak squeak squeak. I hated it. Sold the Jeep with its new top.

My next Jeep arrives hopefully today (being shipped from Cal). Softop, TG.

I put 1 1/2 spacers on I have had no problems and they cured my rubbing problem much cheaper than new wheels but I bought mine used from a WF member

This works great I have it done on ny top but one tip once you start doing don't stop as the oils dry up it sucks the moisture right out of the top and will cuase it to go to s@&t real quick. Just like armorall on plastic.

Made a shifter handle outta my old D30 spider gears. Cost me less than a dollar (minus the locker). Just bought the M10x1.5 nut, welded the gears together, and then welded the nut in place.

I have 2" on mine with 31X10.50s. Was going to go narrower, but I found a deal on the 2"s so that's what I got. That being said it cured my rub, and pushed the first tread out from under the stock flares. Looks good, drives good, handles good I couldn't be happier.

Here is my latest mod, well addition, a quadratec Stereo lock box...love it!!



I took mine off to paint. It took longer to take them off then it did to prep and paint them. In the end a better job though (if you are pickey)

I think comes down to where you live and how much salt or rust your Jeep has been exposed to. I live in Ontario & even with having the Jeep rustproofed every year. I needed drills, grinders, & loads of patience to take them off. It was a B.S. job. Good thing there was not a swear jar near by......... Every single nut was seized or spun on its self.

Good luck

Looks like you did the fender and guard too? How long has it been lasting?
