Mornin Gunner, now that you have had the soft top for a couple of day's what do you think. I would pull the hardtop off but I have no place to hoist it or store it. Starting to think a soft top is the way to go.

Good Morning. I'm pretty suprized how quiet it is, And I am getting use to the idea that I don't leave anything I can't live without in it overnight. But I am excited about how fast it goes from closed to open. I bought a spider shade for it already.

Morning all. Back to court for jury duty today. I think we find out who will be finally selected today. I'm excited to come out and play at Cleghorn tomorrow. See you all there!

I am so happy not only am I taller but I ride smoother and straighter. Although now I have to watch my speed! Looked down at the gauge and I was doing 75... In a construction zone that was 55! Oops! No wiggles or vibrations at all. Amazing. I stayed between 50-60 all the fine before. There goes more gas mileage

I'll let you know. But so far it feels great. I do have the currie HD springs on the back so I feel pretty confident I'll be fine.

Hang in there, hopefully the worse is over and you can be home feeling better very soon.

I have the soft top that came with my JKU, I'm having the same issue figuring out where to put the hard top once we take it off. My car sits very low and we built the house with 10ft ceilings in the garage. I need to have Mike figure out if we can mount a hoist over the spot I park my car in the garage. We have our bikes hanging up there now, but they are easily re-located.

The boat takes up the other half of the garage so that's not an option. The only other thing I've thought of is storing it at my son's house. He has a big 3 car garage and lives alone, plus I own half the house. Maybe my 50% should be a section in the garage

Yeah I still havent done that. I've been waiting for my bumper to go bye bye. Now to take it to the detailer. We ran with the windows down and the inside is pretty dusty. Usually have the air on recycle.LOL we are such sissys. Now with the soft top it is going to be a whole different experience.

I have you all beat, I have goldfish crackers and animal cookies all over my Jeep Caleb decided it was more fun to throw them than to eat them

I may just let Leo hang out in there for 30 min or so, that would be easier than vacuuming and I guarantee there would be no more fishy's or cookies to be found

Gunner I'm really digging the new front bumper, the body color bumper looks good! Did you get a big enough winch!!! lmao

I've been debating on painted my jeep flat desert tan ... or leaving it black and painting my the insides of my wheels OD Green (think jungle boots). Thoughts?

I thought the same thing when I saw the winch and I have the same one. Then I realized mine is recessed into the bumper so it looks much smaller.

I really feel sorry for anyone that gets hit by me now

Mike and I almost bought a dessert tan JKU, he really liked the color. Too bad it wasn't his decision and I liked Orange Crush
