Any recommendations on nice seat covers? I was thinking of going with the Wet Okoles, but they are so expensive.
For me, seat covers are no trash bags. I live my Sahara seats too much! I know how it is. Mods never end. Think good and hard about what you really want though!

I was actually very surprised at how quiet they are on road as aggressive as they are. They also seem to drive well down the road, they don't seem to pull with the road imperfections at all. I haven't compared them to the duratracs, or any other 12.5 tire though. I have heard very good things about the duratracs though. I am very pleased with them so far and I prefer the look of a tall narrow tire, I would definitely recommend them.

Nice Jeep! Here is my '98 Stone White TJ Sport. Looks near the same as yours! Almost 10 years I have had this Jeep. Going to be hard to let it go here in a few months.

I've got a few rips/tears in my seats that need covering. What seat covers would you recommend?

Very nice! Nearly identical, possibly long lost siblings what half doors do you have?

They are full soft doors that also break down into half doors. Got them as a combo when I purchased by Bestop Supertop years ago. I always thought it gave the Jeep a "CJ" look. I also have the CJ style mirrors on it too.

I haven't had a chance to air them down yet, so I can't honestly answer that question. Do you think the narrow tire will cause issues on the 8" rim when running low tire pressure?

where did you get the soft top extras? door surrounds/tailgate & windshield bars.

Total cost is like $750 from quadra... not very cheap Bestop Trektop NX is only $635 shipped including hardware.

I bought the Rampage top and header bar from jeepaddons.com for a really good price... A lot less than quadratec. I had an existing soft top that was in poor shape, so I did not need the surrounds or tailgate bar. I probably would have gone with the Trektop NX if I needed all of the hardware. I would definitely recommend calling jeepaddons and pricing whichever top you choose, I am very pleased with their pricing and customer service, they even offered me a discount from their advertised web price when I called in my order. Plus free shipping. Give them a call, they carry Bestop also if you go that route.

Matt,
Thanks for posting this transformation. And thanks to everyone else for chiming in. I'm just getting started in my Wrangler adventure and appreciate learning from others' experiences.
