Just installed my Top Cap EZ lift. Really easy install and works flawless. I can finally take my hardtop off by myself. Easier to get off than to put back on, but should get easier as I get used to where the jeep needs to be when taking it off.

Great looking JK! I am ordering a 2014 JKU when my color is available and I am planning on ordering a AEV 2.5 or 3.5 lift with 35" tires as soon as I pull off the dealer lot. Are you happy with the 2.5 inch lift or wish you had gone with the 3.5 lift?
Thanks

Thanks!! I'm happy with the 2.5" for the most part. I run a pretty light Jeep, but still got 3+". I think the 3.5 is a better package, but driveshaft issues could pop up. I think I will ultimately go with Adj control arms probably and 37's next summer. Rides pretty good for a Jeep, but its still a Jeep.

Dog threw up in the backseat today. Trek Armor seat covers cleaned right up and look brand new. Now have to buy them for the front.

Pretty good so far. Rides pretty good for a Jeep. Not perfect or even close to good, but pretty food. Handles well.

Just installed the HH headliners. It took 25 minutes with the Velcro. Initial drive @45mph and it makes a very noticeable reduction in noise level. Can barely hear the cars pass me unless they have a throaty exhaust. I will test hwy and heat tomorrow.

Just removed my PIAA lights of my bumper so I can prepare for a rigid led bar.

Just installed my Tuffy Center Console Insert. I really just wanted something hidden and easy to access that I could store cash, CC's, DL, iPod and iPhone. It should be pretty secure although I am only using the 4 stock T-20 bolts right now. For the smash and grab type of thieves it will be fine. I think I will drill the the two optional holes at some point, but my Jeep is never really in a situation that any thief would have enough time to get what they want.

Sold my HT. Was tired of it and not being able to take off unless I knew weather. Soft top is louder, but I will get used to it I'm sure. Like the looks of HT better, but too much hassle for me.

Purchased the Fox ATS and Synergy relocation bracket. I will be installing next week since I didn't want to lose my 9/16 TB bolt and the bracket won't be here until Tuesday. I'm sure it would be fine replacing the 9/16 bolt, but I replaced all my TB and CA bolts for a reason so I would like to keep them.

Just added the Fox ATS. Still trying to play with stiffness, but I can say it does help in high wind situations especially when set to stiff and it's easy to adjust.

Sweet progress man!

I personally like the look of soft top better than HT...

It's grown on me also. The ease of taking top down is the best part.
