Hey nitro, did the folks at custom upholstery just repair a couple of spots of worn stitching or did they have to completely dismantle the top and re-sew it? Mine needs to be completely re-stiched, just trying to get an idea for cost.
Hey Chris...I don't know about the group...never met any of them either...but I would also be excited to get to know a few more people, especially fellow Jeep owners
Jode...I fabric on my top is still all good...but the little plastic slider things that connect the top to the body are broken and in poor shape... any ideas about that?
Hey American, Didn't see this post till just now. Sorry for the delayed response. I would have to see the plastic pieces to possible give you an idea about that. But if they're broken and that's the only problem, there might some options to explore...

Hey Chilly. Yea I applied there already... Unfortunately no response.
I'm pretty sure they dismantled the top. They said that alot of my stiching was dry rotting(?) mine started to rip over the doors and I have loose threads at the back window. So I belive they did the whole top, and I think they might be able to get the plastic pieces your talking about. But it did only cost around 150 and took about 3 days with reconditioning, I didn't think the top they showed me was mine when I went to pick it up( Idroped it off a light grey and got back a dark grey) they offer free quotes so feel free to stop buy and ask.
Lots of people that drive Wranglers, but only a few Jeepers, that's my impression.
I'll wave to you though!
Very good explanation! It's a shame that some people who drive Wranglers don't know, or don't want to be a part, of the Jeeper community! All well, to each their own! Can't wait to see yall on the road!
Hey guys new to the forum. Really looking to make some keep friends to hit the beach and b.s. with wrench and what not. I'm in the monkey junction area. Drive a silver 06 unlimited. Still stock but I just traded in for it last week.
Welcome Shawn! If you enjoy you're Unlimited half as much add I do my TJ, then you're gonna have a blast as a Jeeper!
Jode, yes the waves were awesome this weekend! I got barreled for the first time Saturday, freakin' sweet! Not enough speed on my tank of a funboard to shoot out though- pretty wild to see it close out from both sides of you at once lol!
Not too sure on parking, as I live walking distance away in Kure, but I'd suggest come down towards Kure / Ft Fisher, you don't have to pay to park at the public access points along the main drag outside of CB. Hell, for that matter we should get up & paddle out some time!
Thanks I love it already. I previously owned a cj7 defiantly a jeeper at heart. Trying to decide on a lift and 33's or 35's. Are you guys gonna be doing a club meet really want to meet some more jeep friend.
I just moved into the Monkey Junction area from Topsail Island! Hope to see you around, I have a Lime green Rubi on 35's if you see one its me. As I have yet to see another Lime Greener in Wilmo! And p.s. I wouldnt mind doing a Wilmo meet and greet. Seems there has been lots of talk about it, but nothing solidified.
And Chilly, I'd love to paddle out with you. Much more fun paddling out with a buddy! I miss living walking distance from the surf... Only been 10 days inland and already having some regrets! lol
Anybody rig up a hoist for their hard top? Our garage isn't all that big and I could use some ideas/help
I used 4 ratchet straps hung from ceiling. Adjust so a couple inches higher than top. Back in, lift one back corner then the other then the front. Drive out and you can still pull in frontward to park.
Hey jode I'm off for the next 3 days it's my Friday today. I'm planning on hitting Carolina beach as much as possible. I'd love to meet up with you and anybody else that feels like going out. I'd really like to check out your ride and lift. Trying to get an idea what I want to run on mine.
My wrk schedule is 3 on 3 off so it changes each week. But If you guys would like to get together in the evening that sounds great. Anyone up for hells kitchen in downtown tonight? It's dollar taco night might be fun or other suggestions.
