The rip has gotten bigger progressively, still debating on a top, cause I'm going to need one eventually. Also, I am loving the idea of a half cab....

How about a soft halftop?

Oh, and if you just need a new side window, I have an extra pair for an LJ.

I saw that a couple months back. I like the look of it, but I don't really understand how you were able to make it? I saw the actually 1/2 cab online but I can't find the cover for it. Did you make it?

DD'ing the Jeep anywhere you want to go is 90% of the fun. I thought about 37's and did some thinking and calculations and I'd much rather build bullet proof axles on 35's rather than risk them on 37's.

Sometimes I find myself wishing I had done a 2" BB, 1.25" BL, on 31's and built other stuff from there...

Didn't have to make anything, it's just a rampage cab top. It is actually made for early model TJs, but it fits the LJ just fine. You just have to buy the header bar and deck cover separately. Honestly, it's kinda loud, so it's not the greatest for a daily driver, but it's only $170!!

I don't mind it being loud haha. I looked and both bestop and rampage are neck and neck, but I found the bestop duster for the unlimited. Would either work with that duster? What is your brand duster? I'm pretty sure the speaker pods will fit in the half cab also for both.

Aftermath of jeeptoberfest. I didn't get any action pics but it did well, besides the fact I rubbed the belly a little bit.

New top is on, and man, I can't believe how much clearer it is to look out the windows! And the best part, a 10yo jeep smells brand new!

Well, I got a bestop duster and wrap around windjammer, and I love the new look of it. I got it installed last night, and it rained this morning, and behind the front seats were soaked. I much as less figured that would happen. I don't think I can get it pretty watertight, so I'm doing the old fashioned way of a seal... Until my carpet comes out
