Well, to be honest with you guys. I had to put down my dog of almost 15 years on Friday. So I didn't really feel like doing anything.

Amps in the first aid box? No overheating issues?

I like mine. Framless tops generally take longer put up and down.

The wind noise is just as quiet, if not more quiet than my old bestop sailcloth. I've been very happy with the top so far.

None so far. I checked after an hour and a half drive at a loud volume and everything was fine.

Okay guys. I've been looking into some rocker armor for my next purchase. I'll be going back to work for a couple of weeks before staring school again. I'd like to stay under $400, and the cheaper the better. Here's my options so far:
Savvy aluminum base only $359
Metalcloak stocker rocker $399
Crown rocker guards $149
Genright rocker guard w/bar $399
Nemesis rocker w/slider $249 OR aluminum $365

About all I can think of. Any opinions or other ideas?

My vote is for the Crown sliders. Same as Warn and they can take a beating. Spend the money saved on other upgrades.

That's where I'm leaning. I didn't know if a rail would be worth the extra money like on the Nemesis.

I certainly wouldn't spend the money on Metalcloak if you don't plan to run the fenders (which a Stocker doesn't fit with). I'd go Crown (although for me it'd be whichever the cheapest option with a step was.)

My A to Z rockers are holding up nicely, and I've been beating on them. They are only $300 ish.

I hardly ever use the steps on my MetalCloak sliders. I really doubt I would miss them if they werent there.
