I was able to get that same logo for $8 off eBay. No need to dip. It really looks good with the white grille. Nice!

Define issue?? It still goes 70 at 2K rpm and is fine. Not ideal just fine.

Loss of power mainly. I wanted to get 35's but would most likely need a regear. What gear ratio do you have?

Just received my Spiderweb shade. This week the ORH top should be here and 80* on Sunday so I will install all of them. My summer/dry weather set-up will be JKini for front section, ORH middle section for the dog and Safari Straps for the rear. I hope I thought this through and it will work together.

Can't wait to see these Safari straps. I like the idea of throwing those on just the rear sides of my JKU.

That'd leave me with tube doors, full length Spiderwebshade, Safari straps on rear sides, and an open back.

PC. What I like about the rims is they are black, but don't stand out from the tires like some really black rims do. I would never put tire shine on my tires so these rims blend in well.

After some thought, I actually decided to sell my ORH top last night after having it on for two days. I chose not to sell my HT because I will now have a garage next month to store it and will be doing a lot of traveling this year. I ended up selling for more than I paid so it worked out for me. I will use that same money to get the interior LineX'd which is a better mod for me actually. It is a really cool top that looks great, but it is considerably louder on the highway and I knew that would bug me. Any one can PM me if they have install questions because his instructions are pretty much useless.

Just a quick update to my build...I have sold my safari straps because they got in the way when loading my portable soccer goals into the back. I also sold my JKini and bought a full safari Spiderwebshade to cover my dog also. I also removed my carpet in preparation for LineX. Then I had kidney stones and had to go to ER which was pretty expensive. So I bought AEV floor liners until I pay off ER bill. These liners are actually pretty awesome and I think I may stick with these and no carpet instead of LineX for awhile. I also bought a Top Cap EZ Lift for taking off my hardtop. It should be here in a couple weeks.

Now I'm bored. I have nothing to buy except maybe Trek Armor front seat covers so my JKU will be basically waterproof and dog fur proof!! I guess I will start planning for 37's.

Just received my Top Cap EZ lift hoist. Won't get a chance to install it until next weekend though. I also just pre-ordered my Trek Armor shade. Next up on the agenda is Hot Heads.
