Thanks. Yours looks pretty similar in alot of ways as well. Is that Silverstone Metallic as well? I still think removing the jugs was the single biggest difference in appearance of anything I've done to her yet, lol.

Looks nice. I've heard both good and not so good about these. Please post again after you've had it a while and talk about usability.

Thanks.

Will do. I can tell you the thing wasn't easy to get on. And we had a garage that had been heated up to 80 with the top in in it for an hour before we started. I'm hoping it will get easier as it ages. But the fit is clean and tight for sure.

Great -- sounds about like some of the other things I've seen. Looks very nice, though. I just wonder about how easy it is to take down, put up in summer, where it would be stored on the jeep, etc. Always looking for info.

You are selling your hardtop? Do you drive in the winter? In Michigan I'd think you'd have problems with snow weight damaging the soft top. I don't have a hardtop and try to not get snow on my top for that reason.

took the duster cover off and put the supertop back on. the weather is about to get a little wet... lol. i really struggled to get that stupid duster off. it was just on so damn tight i couldnt get the rails loose.

and of course putting my spice supertop back on just reminds me how much i want a black top. -.- if any of you guys are within driving distance, i have a really nice Spice Supertop that i would LOVE to trade for a black one. lol

Decided to go ahead and put the soft top on (after getting mad at it Saturday)




I called Quadratec about getting the sail panel window replaced...

And then after about an hour or so with a razor knife I "fixed" the sail panel.


And stored the hardtop on the hoist I built.

Totally worth the $11.98 shipping included. May be able to find it cheaper but that's the one I went with and think its awesome. Mine has been broke every since I bought the TJ last year.

I like them too. I see you do not have mirror reloc brackets, any chance you've tried them with the sliders? I'm afraid I won't have a usable mirror with the sliders. Maybe on the driver's side, thinking about just doing that one.


Today I got my subwoofer properly wired, and found out how easy it was to remove he center dash cover to correct the wiring that had been mislabelled by the P.O. Got my front speakers to actually function again as well...now we're rockin'
