Your Jeep looks great! Just a heads up, I bought that same Trektop NX top before last summer and I feel like I should warn you that the back straps will work start to tear away from the top. I ran it without the windows all the time though so you may have better luck... If not, I ended up buying a strap to replace the two that ran from the tub, through the back of the top and back to the tub again. In the end though, I realized that I needed to do something different because fabric is always going to weaken over time and I decided to buy a second hard top and take the windows out.

That's a good question man. Looking forward, I literally have a handful of free days the rest of the summer.

In other news, I randomly met Tony Pelligrino today. That was cool.

Yeah, nice guy. It was really random.....they all clearly had the same craving for Ale Emporium deep dish pizza that I did. I had no idea they were in town, just great timing. The yellow comp JK is built very nicely.

Hey guys, I'm selling my tires. If you'd like 5 excellent MT/R Kevlars, here you go:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f125/...-sale-2691186/

No problems with them at all. I'm simply wanting to try out a different tire.

I'd buy them, but I'm considering other tires than the MTR/Ks myself. What are you looking to try?

I'm looking to try out the Cooper ST Maxx's for improved snow/slick road performance and a quieter ride. They look to be a nice aggressive, tough AT. I'm not able to do nearly as much wheeling as I once did so these really fit the bill for the time being.

I run them on my f250. Great tire. Hard as a rock and pretty heavy though.

I was looking at the same tire too. Quiet, long lasting, and tough! They are among the heaviest radials out there though. At 35 12.5 15 they weighed in at 70lbs, whereas the mtrks are 67 and my previous ttc's were 66lbs. Thought long and hard about it. Ended up with the mtrk's ironically. Great road manners for a MT with more tread depth and void.

Treaddepot was great about having the tire weights for many brands if thats a concern.

Yeah, they weigh 79 lb whereas the Kevlars are listed at 80 lb. Identical as far as I'm concerned.
