I recently found these also. My question is....does the extra "thickness" from the new rail protector, interfere with the way the top slides underneath the rail for a good fit? Hope that makes sense. I need a pair of these too since my tub rails are pretty scuffed up and missing paint in spots.

How do you make a table out of the tailgate using wood. I've seen somebody on here do it, just can't remember who. Thanks!

So got the front alignment done.. but I still have steering wheel dabble at times when I brake or let off the gas. O asked the shoo and they said all they could adjust was the tow.. apparently the caster is out too but I need a cam caster bolt kit???? Any other suggestions.. everything started after putting coil spaces on

Got Line-X premium in the interior and put on a new Bestop sailcloth top on my 2000 TJ. The folks at Line-X in Ruckersville did a great job. So far as the Replace-A-Top goes, I'm going to echo what others have said--definitely wait until a warm day to let the fabric sit out. It was 75 here and that was *barely* enough. I'd actually wait until it's 85+. Thanks to the wifey for helping me stretch the top enough to beat the storm!

The spacers or any other suspension lift would throw off the caster and you would need cam bolts or preferably adjustable control arms to fix it.

As long as the strip doesn't overhang the lip you should be good to go Prefit before you peal and stick.Start at the rear first.

Got a little frustrated at my Rampage frame-less top. Part of the Zipper ripped on the rear of the of the driver side window. This is a week after breaking another tooth on the passenger side rear of the window and the slide part of the zipper on the rear window. The top is just over 2 years old and I feel like the windows are fallen apart!

For the record besides that I still love the top HAHA.

Good to know. Mine is missing the hold down. The bungee cords I'm using now work to hold the battery, but a real hold down would be much better.

Got new tires... nothing earth shattering, but better than the passenger cars tires that were on it when I bought it.

Got her starting again. A wire under the wheel must've come loose. Messed around a bit and got it working. Also replaced the fuse for the fogs and got those working. Anyone know if the PIAA fogs came stock?

Replaced my spark plugs. That should help...


Now looks like I need a new radiator. Leaking around the top. Hope that's not too hard.

Are those Poison Spyder sliders? I believe I can see the Spyder cutout.
