1BLKJP Top looks great David. How's the engine swap coming along?

JeepCrawler98 Certainly - I'll be doing a review on everything in a few months; part of what bugged me before buying it is that apparently nobody has any good pix in their albums or any writeups on them to take a look at.

jeeperman Top and truck look great! Have to keep us updated on the performance. I would love to get one, but I am not sure I can justify the $500 for a new top, when there is nothing wrong with my soft top now...

MR.CLIFFORD you can see the lip on mine and I'm kinda in the same boat. I think I'm going to hack it up some more

Here's a pic that kind of shows what I did; I just followed the curve of the 'crimp' or edge under the hood with about 1/4 to 1/2" of clearance. I decided to cut it close after seeing some other fender trims that had more clearance and you could see the lip from the fender with the hood closed, which I didn't like.

amerijeep Man. It looks great. I'm jealous. Might have to trade the YJ. The top is awesome.

Got a new top!

So I had to replace my torn, filthy, moldy, headliner-separated, broken zippered Saicloth Replace a Top. I decided to go with a Halftop this time around because I really don't have use for the rear area any more (it holds the fuel tank and a battery and some tools now) and I wanted to mask it off. Overall I like the results. Install was a breeze, and the instructions were extremely well written (not that that would make me use em anyways ). To my happiness - the top also cleared my shoulder harness bar beautifully; almost as if it was made for it - which was the one thing I was a bit nervous about before installing this top.

So anyways; just thought I'd share some pics
