I have broken two fabtech springs and bent one other so it's just time for new springs, I am going with bds for the no fine print warranty! To answer the why 5 inch question I am thinking a head about a v8 swap and such I figure once it's all said and done it won't sit any where near 5 inches of lift! If I hate it I can always French the springs!

Much better on the alignment!

Why didn't you do another frameless top? I've been debating going that route vs. replacing my super top. My super top is well over 10yrs old and is just now starting to leak at the bow seams. So the quality is hard to beat, but the frameless tops looks so cool!

I plan on adding to the rear of my cage so the frameless top won't work for me, since it needs the stock cage to support it!
