If I did have a garage, I would never need a soft top at all and would just leave everything off in the summer.
Normally, I prefer unpainted Moabs, but on some setups I think they look great painted.

Haha, if my ac worked I'd like a hard top for the summer.

I miss having winter, FL is basically summer & a little bit of spring

I rarely ever use my AC, I'm actually thinking about converting it to an OBA setup soon. We just had the first snow for the season today, nothing stuck, but I'm ready for it. Hopefully the Jeep will be back on the road after this weekend.

Pinion seal is already done, hoping to get the stinger chopped off and the pre runner put on tonight.....Not sure if that will happen since my dad just got a huge promotion at work and we may celebrate tonight.

Well, I'm calling it a night. I was rushing myself thinking it was Friday night, but I have a whole other day to get stuff done. The stinger is off! Going to get everything smoothed out tomorrow and start getting it ready for the prerunner hoop.

Should get everything on the Jeep finished up tomorrow.

Alright, after taking a short break and looking at it, I moved the hoop further forward. I like this a little better.

Looking good man! Be careful using the flap just for paint removal.... it really takes away a lot of material and will make you a little angry during the painting process when you can see where you've hit it. A palm sander with some good 60grit will remove a finish very quickly.
