going for the quiet ride, and a bit warmer. altho its technically spring, im still seeing temps in the 20s at night. its my on and off dd. i have an 03 gc as well and i can always use that when its really cold, but its no comparison to my yj. i always like the head turns when especially since i just dropped almost 1k on tires. to anyone running 33s, red letter general grabbers are the way to go. i had x terrains on it, and you could hear me coming a mile away. these 33 are nice. quiet, good tread. so i guess my posts on cl are fruitless? i wont gain anything by swapping tops? well, except a rear windshield wiper and def. i did plan on doing some work to my top. the rear window gaskets leak, all around even on the hatch. re doing them, also either carpeting it or using something else. i was looking to quiet my ride a bit. did some looking and was going to use sound proofing. i happened to be wandering around walmart with my wife the other day, and i found some black mat kitchen sink mats. they are like a wrestling mat only not as thick. $10 a piece. On the off chance I bought two, and since i had to plug the holes in my ds and ps floor pans and let the carpet dry i put them in under. they reach all the way under the seats, a few cuts with a razor knife and they fit perfect. i put them in, added the carpet, and the sound change inside is beyond noticeable. quieter, warmer, it even seems like a smoother ride. $20, and it did that. well worth it. im thinking about doing the entire tub, and using the same stuff on the top. ive heard about carpeting the top with good results, I am sure this stuff is the way to go with the top also. just have to find solid pieces, not door mat size. but thanks for the info. i figured i would ask. i just dont remember all that noise with my other yj, but it has been a few years. guess its just a jeep.
