I have an old HTC, it's slow as hell to load pictures and pages but I see it all. I'm about to change and was debating on the S3 and the S4.
I think I will see what it looks like on my Wife's S4.

Don't know, I switched from my LG phone about a year ago to this one and install the app to it when I got

Looks like I will be doing the same thing again in the next few days when I switch phones.

On a galaxy s blaze and no titles on the app. Sometimes the avatars go away too. Not all the time. Not a big deal to me

I see that! ^^^

To answer the question... No I have not. I have a window storage bag that I acquired from a JK that I could use but I found it to be more of a pain then just rolling the windows by hand and tossing them in the trunk or under the rear seat. Most of the summer I have my mesh top on so I don't even have my windows with me.
I use the storage bag for the fold up outdoor chair with the cup holders. It fits all three Windows of my TJ perfectly

I thought about that but, I figured since my mother-in-law has sewing skills and I have some old DCU material laying around so why not use it for something.

This thread has been awesome. Thanks to all of you who have contributed.

I purchased a Rubicon last month and have started adding some small mods. Less than $75 total.

Here is the Jeep... 2004 Rubicon:



Here are the mods that I've added over the last week or so:




The tail light is kinda hard to see, but it looks great at night. I was a little apprehensive at first, but it turned out way better that I expected. All it took was a can of bedliner and a Bama decal.

Welcome to the club. Enjoy the ride. Your DNA is changing right now even as you read this. You will become a Jeep lover more and more, side effects will include but not limited to a shrinking wallet, everything will be more fun with mud added, you will have more and more urges to mod things, you will want to park all the way across the parking lot so you can park on top of a pile of snow, it wont matter if it is a mountain or a mole hill you will park on it.

Here's a couple of picks of my DCU soft top boot.

Already had the material, 2 old uniform tops. Just needed an assist with the sewing.

cheap driver seat repair

not sure if this qualifies as a mod or not, but it's a heck of alot more comfortable than sitting on broken wires/springs. The original supports were rusted through and broken. I also stuffed new foam into the left bolster which was broken down. Had the foam laying around.

I used the big cable ties that are intended for duct work. Can get a package for about 10 bucks.

kinda of a pain to take the seats apart, sprayed fresh paint on everything before putting it back together.

Oh ok. And it's alright. There aren't many trails big enough for jeeps but I still enjoy going up there. There's one trail I really wanna try that's more technical. But the main trail is pretty fun as well
