I want more info on the easy awn. I was gonna get one of those tent trailers, but the top tent like that is perfect.

I'm a big fan of overland rigs, and want to get into the "sport" myself.

X2 (I hate to do that)! Anyway, add me to the interested party list. That is a very clean aux switch panel.

Scott,
Those 2" Rigid lights are new to me; how do they compare to the Solstice cubes. I was thinking of mounting two of those in a flood pattern on the back of my Jeep, flanking the third eye.

Would you please tell me about the roof rack that is on the SEMA 2009 Jeep Overland.

I have searched on the internet and it shows it to be an ARB. However, when I go to the ARB online catalog, there is no such rack listed for a Rubicon Wrangler Unlimited.

I am interested in mounting a rooftent and awning on a hardtop Rubicon. I would like to know how it was done on your vehicle.

Thanks.

I was just out in Arizona, got to meet Scott and take some pictures of this project.
I'll try to remember to upload them when I get home. I think I took close-ups of the rack mounts.

There was this thing too; note its rack:






And speaking of Mr Brady... ...the shaved-head guy.

Nice pictures of the J8 Bill.

I am loving that truck and the Overland JK. Jeep really nailed it with the four door.

Since there were pictures of the inside mounts on ExPo, I just shot the top part. It's an ARB; this is what the rack looks like up close:
