Scored a Hard top for $100.00 Both back windows are blown out, but nothing some Lexan cant fix.

Hope to be a little more comfortable this winter wheeling

You are going to wheel with a hardtop on? Even a $100 one?

Wheeling with a hard top sucks but they sure are nice the rest of the time.

They hold up surprisingly well, though. I rubbed my old one against a tree pretty hard and it was just fine.

Are you going to seal the lexan into place or rig up some brackets so they are removable?

Cool. For $100.00 I wont mind trashing it. Just need my son to be warm and dry.

Well, not much happening on my build. Sold my wheels and tires last night. Looking at getting a set of Spyderlocks and Krawlers.

Nice. You going to do another set of 35" Krawlers or bump up to 37s?

Tried to get Garzas 37 MTRs, but they sold too fast. New 35 Krawlers and Spyderlocks ship out today.

I love spyderlocks. I was about to order a set when I ran across a deal I couldn't pass up.

So new rims and new tires? Why'd you get rid of the old ones?

They are used, but almost new.

I got rid of the old ones thinking I would bump to 37s. Now I cant find any deals in my budget, and I don't want to miss anymore wheeling trips.

They sure are shinny compared to the old steel Allieds. Hopefully I can get them mounted tonight. Thinking the ring will need spray painted black though
