No noticeable fading or wear after one year. To tell you the truth these are so rugged looking that I think a little bit of that would only add character anyway. I know it wouldn't bother me any.

I had my doubts about them being 100% waterproof myself, but I never planned on letting them get soaked either. On a daily basis for me it might be better that they breath more rather than repel...

Of course it all depends on how it was driven during that short trip vs when you were getting 19. . Maybe drive it a little more to get a good average. I just got mine back from the dealer yesterday....

I am in the camp that thinks a good harness and secure tie-down is the way to go rather than the safari nets if you are truly interested in the safety of your dog.

TREKTOP NX SOFT TOP - Brand New

I got 17" ATX artillery wheels. I went with 17s to get the "D" rated tires which I assumed would be a little less stiff than the "E" rated which is the only choice for the 285/75/16.

Thanks for all you replies. I normally run at 35 psi and now I feel confident enough that I can let out 10-15 lbs if the need arises. Stay safe.
