No offense, I love the new black Rubi, but the Tan Sahara was so badass!

OK. I'm cutting her. Tite Top time! Have a line on a couple of the half tops. Going for a scrambler theme I believe. I miss the last half top but i love the extra horses in this rubi!! Rather than color match like my Sahara Tan was, this one will be painted like the factory semi flat.

Ok. Half top is supposedly getting ready for shipping. Just did a little editing with the computer to see what she'll look like! Im thinking different bumper though. Maybe Genright Aluminum. Not feeling the stinger!!

Update on Tite Top by Avenger. It landed and looks great. But the window kit that came with it was rough. Trying to get it corrected with Avenger! Also front PureJeep bumper on the way as well as Rock Hard Roll cage reinforcement!!

While I drool over literally every wrangler (except one that belongs to a rapper) I think your tan one was on another level. Black just doesn't cut it : P

Ok, Half top going for paint next week. Rock Hard roll cage going in for poeder coating hopefully next week. Pure Jeep bumper is on the way!! And I ordered a cool product from Michigan Vehicle Solutions. Its a soundbar made specifically for the half cab JK8. In order to fit the top the soundbar must be removed. This keeps the speakers where they belong!! Last Jeep I had to put them in a cabinet behind the seat!! The cutting starts tomorrow as well as the wire re-routing! A few pics!

Thanks Dave S !!! And niether can I!! Ha!!

Heres what was done today. First the bed area was stripped of carpet and plastic. Then I started cutting enough roll bar to dry fit the top. Last, I started to seperate the wire looms that travel along both left and right upper rails. These wires will now travel inside the quarter panels where they belong!!
