Haha, I just put my soft top back on. I've been running with a bikini top & doorless since November...but I'm in FL & put my top back on in hopes of getting my ac fixed for summer.

Nice build btw

Edit: really doorless mostly for the past 2 years considering I usually have a garage to park in

Had to work today so only the windows came off. I run the factory sail cloth top.

Okay. I'm going to have to replace mine this spring and I'd been considering the (gasp) Smitty one. Apparently they actually can be pretty damn good but it can kind of be a hit or miss on that. I tore my rear passenger window last fall because it was too cold to zip it back up.

For $250... i don't know if it's even a bad idea haha.

For a whole top, thats a steal. I got my rear window re-stiched last year. Maybe about 2 inches, and that cost me $100.

Yeah it's $250 for the whole top. Tinted windows, etc. I've had my top (stock) for 5 years and I got it off Craigslist for only $200 so I suppose it's been worth the cost Might just have to be Smitty!

Weather was nice so I gave her a bath. Also, had a leak from the front diff cover plug. I put some plumbers tape around the plug, hope that will stop the leak. Also, since switching to the new oil, I checked the RMS leak today and it was dry, and really hope it stays like that. I was very happy to see that.
