I wouldn't imagine you having any problems at all. I would be willing to bet you would have more problems with an OEM top than this one for sure.

Someone I follow on IG just order a top from ORH, so I'll see what kind of service he gets. One of the thinks I really like besides being able to go from fastback to cargo back, is that their fastback allows you to open up the top all the way to the back. So many only open up the front part and/or have all those bows in the way if you can open it up.

Don't mind me just stirring the pot. This is a smoking deal. I know you are up in Colorado but for $600.. He posted on FB under North Texas Jeep Club. I'm sure you could talk him into shipping.

From what I read you can add the fast back top onto this. Basically the multi top is this top + the fast back top. Might want to email them to confirm but if so you could save $600-$800.

Yes sir. Gunmetal 17's with the wheel protectors. I love the 20's just couldn't stomach the increased prices for 35/37's for a 20" wheel. Looks great though!

Originally I had the Halos and Demon eyes wired up to turn on when the Jeep was on and the Demon eyes to turn off with the power of the headlights.

After a few weeks I decided I wanted a little more control on when they were on and off.

Glad you posted up that you decided to switch them. I've been going back and forth on that part. I could easily connect them to my sPOD, but don't know if I want to have to turn them on every time.

I've ran the harnesses for the main lights and the devil eyes, but I've not installed anything else. I'm trying to figure out where to put the two smaller boxes for my front and rear angle eyes (mine are setup to work as my turn signals). There is so little room behind the lights for all of this stuff. Any tips on where you ran your wires and stuck all the "black boxes"?

Are your Halos color changing? That's another area of wiring I have to figure out. They sent me two "octopus" wire harnesses, but I haven't really figured them out yet.

It was a pain trying to find space. It helped removing the air box to get more space. The driver side wasn't too bad. Did Tom not send the links to explain the harness?

Honestly I wouldn't waste the space on your Spod unless you have to have it. This was simple enough with a switch and relay. When I first got the lights I didn't want to mess with it, but the more I showed them off the more I wanted to choose.

Here is my passenger and driver side. Obviously real estate is at a premium on the passenger side because of the harness, is setup to be on that side.





Fun pictures




For what it's worth I plan on getting a spod but I will be keeping these separate. My Halos are just white. Once the tag was over $800 my wallet got really tight.

He did send me links and some install instructions... they are just not the best when you have all the options on your lights.

Thanks for the pics. My winch cables are ran in that same passenger's side areas as well, so that's not helping. I might have to reroute those to free up more space.

Right now I've only got one thing on my sPOD, so I have plenty of room and can easily move them off of there later if need be.

Love the Hillary sign!

Got my superlift trackbar today. You could say I needed it. Install was a breeze, got the axle for the most part centered, only odd thing was my steering wheel shifted after install.

So I felt compelled to write a better response than, "Holy shit it's amazeballs".

So when I bought my Jeep it had the lift already on it. They didn't upgrade anything from what I can tell except springs, and shocks. Obviously I knew that some key items were missing that would need to be addressed. The first bandaid was the GEO correction brackets which were well worth the money till I find some lowers I really like.

So like many I have 35's and the Jeep drove well on the highway for what it is. In my area of TX there is a ton of highway construction that has been evolving for the past year. They have traffic going up and over medians, uneven pavement; asphalt as well as a bunch of dipshits that drive too fast on these surfaces that like to weave in your lane.

Needless to say driving to and from work wasn't white knuckled by any means, but if I hit a bump or uneven surface you could feel it badly in the steering. The only reasoning I could think of is that one tire hits the bump and the track bar was too weak to absorb and keep the axle stable thus feeling it to the wheel. I am not sure some of you understand the importance of upgrading items like this, as you can simply have someone get in your Jeep and turn the steering wheel and you can watch the OEM track bar bend before moving... not good.

So in short I have never been happier with a $113 expense. The Jeep feels 100% more secure and stable, and there is no more feeling in the steering wheel going over any bumps. Seriously, if you have a lift, or over sized tires do yourself a favor and chalk this up to the "no fun have to do mod" and do it.

I honestly wish I would have done it sooner. Night and Day difference.

Now you need to adjust the drag link to get that steering wheel centered back up.

I also need to re-center my front axle. I noticed the other day that it was offset to the passenger side some. I tried knocking it out last night, but the adjuster sleeve nut was being a bitch and I ran out of time to work on it. I hate having to put the jeep back together without finishing what I started

Installed my ace inner fenders today. Overall great quality but they do not fit my fenders flares without modification and there was not nice way to do it. I will definitely recommend these, stupid easy to install and look awesome.

Looks like it is going to the dealer:

For whatever reason I keep blowing the M18 fuse (Passenger Running Lights). Not sure what happened or where I went wrong but there has to be a short somewhere that I cannot find.

I hate electrical and I hate the fact I have to leave it at the dealer. electrical is always a huge needle in the haystack. Hopefully they know the ins and outs of the circuit and can track down the culprit. If not, I may just throw a 40A in there and see what burns up.

The M18 fuse list for the turn signals. I attached the wiring diagram see if that helps.

So a small update. Work has been crazy as well as my cerakoting side bizz and with the addition of a cash back refinance on my home. Nice to know my initial 40K down as turned into 100K in 2 years. I suppose that's the housing market.

The short to my lights was my own stupidity again and it cost me $100 for the dealer to show my how stupid I was instead of me taking a simple deep breath and rechecking my wiring.


I had planned on going up to 37's with locks, but I just cannot see a better pro list than cons right now. So I am going 37" Ridge Graps with Saltas.

If anyone in North Texas is reading this, my current setup will be fore sale in the next month.
