I've had mine for going on two summers. It's wayyyy easier to take off then on My back window zipper broke too. There number 10 zippers any cleaners will have replacement you can buy off them for pennies. But quality has been good. No leaks or anything and it doe look good!

Although complicated I've found the best/easiest way to put the top on. Is zip the side windows on slightly, then clip in about 6 inches of the door, then zip the back window in about halfway on each side. Then fully snap the doors in and then the sides and then pop the tailgate bar in and fully zip and tie down the back straps.

Thought I had a weeping water pump.....but just a loose top hose clamp just enough to let it drip down front of the engine and dripped from the front edge of the oil pan, whew! Tightened it up, ran to high temp for awhile, shut down and no leaks!

Installed pair of brand new shocks from a JKU Sahara in the front of my TJ. I still had the stock shocks upfront and they were a little tired especially now that I have sorted out my sagging front end. The JKU shocks are around 1.5" longer than the stock shocks so should work much better with my lift especially because they were free. It is afted 12am so I'll see how they ride tomorrow.

I replaced my fog light bulbs, had one blow-out last week so I dug my old ones out of storage.
I never throw anything away

Looks much better with all the lights lit

I want 1.25 wheel spacers probably. Don't have a lift, riding on 31's. Would it look bad? If not, what are a couple good kind? Not too cheap, or too expensive please.

Bought the Smittybilt C.RES cargo net and extended bikini top. Going to use those as a fair weather replacement for my worn out soft top, then go to my hard top that I picked up for the bad weather months.

Can you post some pcs when you get it installed? And any pros/cons that you can think of. Been thinking about buying those.

Yeah, no prob. I might do it tonight if the rain will calm down just a little bit haha.

I kind of wish I had picked up the Bestop bikini top, I'm sure it's probably going to be better quality then the Smittybilt one, but we'll see. They only had the Smittybilt one in stock though.

Monstaliner is an outstanding liner. I like the texture and the choice of colors. Also you can't beat the price.

I didn't bother taking pics and doing a write up because there is one here: Monstaliner: A Full Install Write-Up - JeepForum.com

What I can tell you is fully stripping the interior is more work than it sounds and prep work is THE most important step. Take your time, it takes several hours to do it right. Planning, sanding, wiping with MEK, and MASKING are what makes the install. I really wish I masked a little bit better on a couple spots.

Also, that stuff does not come off your hands if you let it dry.

That being said, the final product is awesome!! Great texture and color and it is tough stuff for sure.

Follow the write up and the instructions with the kit and you;ll be good to go.

Drove it up to the 3rd annual Pirates of the South Central meet and greet, which is going on about a mile from my house. I don't think I saw any rigs running anything less than 38 inch tires. It felt like I was driving a toy

I do wish it was black. I just got this Jeep about 2 weeks ago and I plan on modeling it after a white JK Rubicon I had.
