Ok Awesome thank you!! My jeep is my baby just annoyed that this needs replaced with only 25,000 miles and hoping it doesn’t cause issues in the future. I will stop worrying and let the warranty handle it!!

I think we all feel that way about our Jeep's, its that "Gear Head Love-a-fair". On the brighter side, its still under warranty! Hope you get it fixed and back soon, you might get separation anxiety..jk'ing

When I bought the NX top off CL, the guy was also selling the doors. He gave me a pretty sweet package deal for buying both. They are the Highrock Element doors. They seem pretty nice.

Great looking set-up!! I really like those NX tops. I believe Rampage makes a nice storage bag for the NX sides / windows. So if you want have them with you and not scratch 'em up when running just the safari top.

I rigged up a removable holster for my Glock 17/19. It cost less than $25 and seems to be working fine. I bought a Blackhawk holster and some industrial strength Velcro from Walmart. The holster already had the loop portion of the Velcro sewn into it on the right side for putting an adjustable strap on it. I cut off the material covering the Velcro on that side and then put a piece of the latch Velcro on the side of my console. Because I got a few pieces of Velcro in my pack, I'm going to sew a thin piece into the mag pouch and put another strip on my consol just to have Velcro on every contact point (it still holds good even as I have it set up now). Here are some pics of how it turned out...

Picked up my 2010 JK on Monday. Just installed the BestTop underseat lock box. And, I have a roughrock rear bumper and tire carrier coming in tomorrow. That bad boy will be my weekend project.
