Nah it's all good. Trust me i wish that was the worst I've done but its not. Last time I was on the trail I got on the radio and I said "Hey Marty take Video of this!" And it cost about $8k and a month with out my jeep. Awesome video, and now I watch it on my phone every time I'm off roading and I start thinking of doing something stupid.

LMFAO! My daughter bought me a T shirt for Xmas. One side says " Hold my beer watch this". The other side shows a TJ rolled over on its side. "Truer words never spoken" I love that shirt!

Here's something that was cheap and easy.

I picked up a set of these cheap spring loaded clamps that Home Depot sells for under $3 and mounted them between my sun visors.


Worked perfect for the flashlight that my step dad gave me for Christmas.


And with the flashlight having a set of led lights on the side it doubles as an overhead light. (Much brighter than it looks in the picture)

Only thing I'd be worried about is hitting a good sized bump and getting clocked in the nugget by a flying flashlight. Being the fraidy-cat that I am, I might try to tie those metal prongs together some how. Looks cool, though!

I thought about that, I did, trust me. lol

They hold it pretty damn tight and the flashlight is actually very light. It's aluminum with led lights and uses three AAA batteries so if it does come flying off it shouldn't be too bad.

It's the Rampage frameless top, and I love it.

There's a pocket above each sunvisor. As for the bar, it has two fiberglass rods that run from the front to the center bar of the roll cage. They help prevent water from settling on the top in a pool.
It has a few other cool features like a built in storage bag for when you take the windows out.
Another fact about it that is rarely mentioned is that if you do take it completely off the whole thing will fit into the provided storage bag and can be easily stored somewhere like behind the back seat or under your sofa. I leave mine there when the weather is nice.

I have the Rampage top and I didnt know that, tho I rarely get to take the top completely off since the sun is a killer down here. But its in Safari mode almost year round so that kinda makes up for it.

Yeah, it can be harsh here too but if I know that I have a few days of nice Sun in a row I will leave the top at home and roll with a Sun shade bikini top. I have a friend that's going to be making me a sun screen top that can stay in with the Rampage on, if her elbow ever heals from her breaking it on her kids skate board.

Has anyone ever made a mod to turn on the dome lights while the tailgate is open? I'm curious because its pretty annoying when it's dark out and I can't find anything.
