Long time stalker, first time poster. I had a couple questions that I'd like to get some info on regarding my 2.5 Jeep, from some Pacific Northwest owners (or similar geo/climate). I'm in Portland Metro area.
First off, I see a ton of posts about tops so I'm reluctant to ask a question about them. However, I have to replace mine again. I've gone through 2 factory tops since 2007. This is my DD, so it sees a ton of rain but gets garaged at night. Where I end up leaking is on zipper seams, lip seams, seams, oh and door skin SEAMS. Is there a brand that holds up better than factory, or should I just silicone line all my seams? If I have to, I'll replace whole thing and save for Super Top NX, but of course would rather avoid having to shell it out if I don't have to (say Quadratec instead)?
I have a 2.5 with a Jet chip. It originally was running on 33 BFG MT, but I down sized thinking 32 BFG AT would help the scoot. It didn't, and now looks small
and still toddler crawls around this hilly metro area. Do these motors just lack the go go power, or are the 4.0 similar in same geo areas? I only have 84k miles on it, but am sure I will run it into the ground sooner than later and need to decide what to do motor wise. Rather start pondering it now.
Lastly, I have this camel/spicey interior and want to change it. With how rainy it is here, has anyone had good luck with painting it and having it last in super rainy areas? I have read the thread with the Krylon painting interiors, but didn't see anyone in my area having done so with results.
Sorry this is long, Flame on and send me elsewhere if I just posted all this in wrong area. Thanks in advance. I had my Yota stolen and totaled, and went against my roots and got a Jeep. I feel dirty, but am digging it.
