Sucker Punch Had a blast at the beach last week. Had dinner and came back out to find another Granite JKU parked next to me. First time for me to see two granites side by side so I had to snap a picture.

Unfortunately, he told me since GCM was only available in 2014, they are hard to find especially with such low mileage (I bought mine from him with under 3000 miles). Out of 300 Jeeps that he has sold, mine was only the 4th. If you do end up calling him, let him know David K (from Massachusetts w/ the GCM purchased on 10/1/14) referred you. I had such a good experience buying from him and am going to help him spread the word.
I also bought my Jeep from Mike. He's awesome. My wife went back 2 months later and picked out a fully loaded Sahara from Mike. So we now have 2 unlimited Jeeps in the garage. She had to get her own since I wouldn't let her drive mine.

Very good reminder! I learned the hard way, but fortunately it didn't damage my top!

Congrats on your first Jeep, doylez! You did good!

Great pics Zigsrig!

I need to get a 2011 or newer hardtop. I picked my 2009 hardtop up for $700 and couldn't pass it up. I really want those wider windows. I put the hard top on for the first time without the soft top underneath this morning. Not sure why there is even a rear window. I can't see jack! Of course the 37" tire on the back doesn't help... I can barely see with the top completely off. Here are a few pics with the hard top on

It mounts to the PS frame rail. It just goes through the stock bumper (just like it does on the AEV bumper).

Intall wasn't too hard, just don't get ahead of your self and follow the directions (i had a small 1 hour detour for getting ahead of my self).

No rattles, squeaks... nothing. Its a great investment.

Congratulations on a successful hunt! I enjoy seeing that happen for you.

doylez Flew down to Virginia (thank you Wells Autos Sales in Warrenton, VA http://www.wellsautos.com) and drove her home (about 9.5 hr). What a fun road trip!

This is my baby not far from Wells Autos in Warrenton, VA. We had a good lunch before hitting the road:

Here's another shot of her in the garage:



More pics to come when the weather gets better and after I pickup my hard top this weekend. I think I'm gonna spend my work day with my laptop inside my Jeep to learn all of the ins and outs of this car as it's my very first Jeep. LOVING IT!!

Question for anyone. Do any of you have a good technique for cleaning the dust off the cloth interior and roll bar pads? I have been on some seriously dusty trail rides and the inside is a mess and has a coat of dust everywhere.

No, mine were non-painted.

Sorry for the delay. This forum only sends me notifications every few weeks. I have it set to notify me immediately.

At that point I was fearing many more weeks before coming upon another GCM but the very same dealership was able to find me another with same options but several thousand miles LESS. The picture above is actually a photo of the one that got away but the one I'm getting looks exactly the same. I am excited to join the community of owners
