I like it; since its frame-less I could put some speakers on the wheel wells if I wanted to, I might. Also if you take out the side and back windows it completely open around the back corners and all. Also the front half of the top flips back which is cool. One thing I do not like about it is the inability to roll the back window up and store it. It has to come out if you want it open..

I stand corrected. Makes perfect sense. Thank you for that.

NCRick Today I bought and installed some Truck-Lite LED's on my 98 TJ - I picked them up at 4WP for $370.99 + tax. They went in super fast, can't wait til its dark to test them.

I haven't been on in a little while but in the past 2 months I have done the following:

Bought/Installed Bestop Trektop NX - I think the top was original, it had seen better days

B/I New Upper Door Skins & Frames - Had the sliders, hated them

B/I turn signal arm - old one had the cancelling tit broke off, had to shut it off manually

B/I new headlight switch - started acting up, had to hold it just right to work

B/Had Installed 31x10.50 Goodyear Wrangler Authority's from wallie world, on sale for 143 ea. w/some pro comp 51 in flat black. opted for a set of 5 - I can't stand when someone upgrades wheels/tires and keeps the dinky spare

B/About to Install - Pro Comp 2x2 LED Flood Lights on Lower Windshield Brackets

Lastly I installed a sweet arse jolly roger plate on the front bumper.




I am probably forgetting something but needless to say I have dropped some cash in the last few months.

Didn't realize this post would kick up so much debate, I just figured I was in the clear because from what I looked up, the union should always be on the right, which is the left to the viewer. But maybe it is different with vehicles... either way I still like it and have no plans of changing it.

If you type in American flag decals on Amazon, it's the one by RAD DEZIGNS. I've ordered a ton of decals from them and I haven't had a problem with any. As far as I could tell, they don't have reverse flags decals though, another company does but their reviews suck. WWCH posted a link earlier of some regular and inverted ones for sale, if you'd rather have that.

When displayed in a window it should be displayed in the same way, that is with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street."

Either way you look at what I did, the union or blue field is on the viewers left, guess I don't know why you think it should be the other way around...
The passenger side...

Laggy Flushed/bled brakes. Removed reservoir and cleaned, it was all gunked up.
Flushed steering fluid.
That covers all the maintenance fluids since I bought the jeep.
Ground off sharp metal from part of control arm mount that a rock dragged across. I kept dragging my head across it every time if go under driver side of jeep.

Tomorrow I'm gonna spec out the drum brakes. They are squeaking when I release the pedal. Probably just needs grease where shoes pivot/rub on the back plate.
