What are some of the pros and cons of a hardtop on a LJ? Does it have a better ride? The only down side I can see with a hardtop is it's a pain to remove and put on with out the right set up.

i really like the lift. the ride is bumpy but thats mainly due to a 4 inch lift and stock short arms. Hopefully after this summer i will do some longarms which will give me a much better ride. I had procomp shocks and i switched to the skyjacker hydros and it definitely helped the ride quality.

Hardtops have their up's and down's like soft tops.

HARDTOPS: quieter, heavier (may make your rear sag), able to just lift the rear window to gain access - but make sure you don't have anything to impede the opening (i.e. Hi-lift, spare tire...), nicer in the winter, you can put a sun roof, cargo rack or light bar on it. Great with full steel doors. Gotta find somewhere to keep it. If you already have the rear wiring/windshield washer fluid line you're golden!

SOFT TOPS: Sunny out? Put it down or open sunrider, noisier, more chances for leaks, windows scratch easily, only need one person to take off, take out windows to make a "safari top", great with half doors. No need to run wires or liquid lines.

They each have pro's and con's. Just gotta decide.

A hard-top is obviously more secure too. If I had to pick just one, it would be a HT. I hate the sound the soft tops make on a long road trip when you notice it the most, it will drown out any music you're trying to listen to.

Never Mistake Kindness for Weakness. What is desired in a man is kindness, And a poor man is better than a liar.

Yup. I pick the Jeep up from Blaine tomorrow, he was nice enough to take time out to do the install for me. Him and Gerald are good guys.

I'm kind of late here with my response. I don't know if your asking about factroy wheels from the original TJ I had when I started the thread or now. Since I started the thread, I have traded off my TJ and I now have a LJ Sahara like yourself. Yes, I do have the Sahara graphite Moabs. I also have a set of regular Moabs I switch around with as I rotate. So you will often see pictures of my jeep with either wheels and even a mix of both.
