It hugs it all right, that's the only thing that supports it.

Jeff, the rubi looks great, especially with the new top... I've been thinking that when my Best Top goes, I'm going with the Rampage/Viking top... much cheaper than the Best Top and simpler too!
Can't wait for the pics from MOAB, hopefully when my jeep grows up and graduates college, it'll be sexy like yours and connor's and James'

Buy a safari top for wheeling in. Much cheaper to replace when it tears.

I love my safari top when wheeling....Actually I scrapped all other tops and run it year around. I use a wind jammer in the winter.

I must say, that top looks great. I wish I would've gone with one of those. I say sell the hard top and put the money toward more mods!

Me too, but I do miss being weatherproof. I'm just trying to help Jeffro avoid a costly mistake. Lol

Very Very true...but I just chalk that up to it being a Jeep thing. That and I've learned to carry a poncho in my O-S*** bag

The three of us should be in Moab on May 23rd. I'm sure we'll be willing to hook up with others, once there...so long as they're set up similar to us. We'll all be in Rubi's, with 2-3" of lift and 32's or 33's. Two of us have winches. The other two are LJ's, one is yellow and one is black. The three of us have been planning this for quite awhile now and we're getting pretty excited with each passing day. I have a thread about the trip in our Jeeps Going Wild section.

The Ramage will be ran in safari mode when weather permits...but I'm not into getting wet, or cold. I've also sewn up a hole or two in my previous soft top, so I know stuff happens....but I'm pretty sure I can't sew up a hardtop.

Oh, speaking of tops, it rained like a mother, the Ramage let in zero water. I traveled about 20 miles @ 60mph, with a 30mph cross wind and the top was tight and quiet. Not much more noisy than the hardtop. It's a winner in my book already.

Nope you can't, that is what duct tape is for.

I just ordered my a CB. I went with the Cobra I've been thinking about. Should be here next week, and be installed in plenty of time for my trip.
