I have the chain bolted on with 1/2 bolts and then the bolts and chainend links are welded on both sides

dangerous and not allowed in any reputable club. not my jeep, but i just thought i'd pass that along. i'm assuming you use a d ring to attach to, and when a chain link lets go, you have a 4lb deadly steal projectile bullet flying 100 mph any direction it wants to.

sorry to make you mad but i mostly only deal with mud, i live in PA were the most abundent 4wheeling are mud holes. I also use the jeep for mud bogging events were you are required to have a chain or strap attached to your vehicle in case you need pulled out.

hey, i'm not the one hooking to it, so no big deal. just thought i'd bring it up, i can't believe that there's actual events that recomend doing that. a hook or clevis that is attached to the vehicle is much safer, than a section of chain, that gets slacked and then tightened under jerking power when pulled on with another vehicle. a link gets weak and someone is gonna get hurt.

a strap will at least flex and stretch with that jerking force, and if a strap breaks it will go flying, but less chance of flying metal. also why you are not supposed to use strraps with hooks built in.

The top is actully in 2 pieces.there is the top piece that goes from the windshield around the roll bar and attaches to the floor behind the seats. The back is a tonneau cover wich snaps to the front window piece. The top is completly water proof and it stays warm in the winter. You can unzip the back winow and you have a bikini top, or take the top off and just run the tonnueau cover. I got it from ebay for 200 bucks but they have the samething in jcwhitney for 150 bucks
