Added some new side markers to our front fender armor. Got a pair of 3/4" led lights , drilled a few holes in the plates in the extra space we left for this, wired them up and tinted them with some spray tint. Took about 30 minutes for theb whole deal.

Just the aerosol duplicolor bed armor. I cleaned the existing liner I have really good and they are bonding together really well.

Took the doors off for the first time since fall. I guess I didn't lube them good enough, they were harder to get off then when I first got it. I actually had to use a jack and lots of pb blaster to finally get them to budge. But I'll get to enjoy a few warm days topless. And I'm gonna make sure i lube the crap out of my door pins before I put them back on

I like to use white lithium grease to lube my hinges. I clean and re-lube them before I put them back on for the winter, I haven't had any issues getting them on or off.

Would like pics and info on how you wired it.

I'm either going that route or the other set up I've been looking at for awhile, were you simply flash your high beams and the garage door opens, it cost a little more.

Now due to the fact its a Rampage frameless top I cant close my back window. And it rained the past couple days so been driving around with a tarp until today.

Unfortuitly the top is just past the 2 year warranty.

I broke down and put the doors back on. I'm still running the bikini top, but they're calling for snow later tonight, and I didn't want to drive home with no wind block.
