I really like it. I do have a few complaints though. The soft top frame, the bars that hold the top up, rust on the inside. In the summer I don't have the top on at all, so this is annoying. There is nothing to prevent it from happening. Sucks. The other thing is that when running it as a safari top, top up with all the windows off, the rear corners don't want to stay in place. I don't use it as a safari top, but that is also annoying.

Other than that, its been a good top. I really like the tinted windows. It has also performed well in the winter.

The floor lighting seems really bright in the photo, how bright is it really? Do you find it distracting? Have you had time to really try it out? Curiosity...

Today I bought 1/4" steel poly coated lines and rubber hose to replace the return fuel line, which leaks like a sieve. Currently it runs down the driver's side of the Jeep, over the exhaust system. The leaking fuel conveniently evaporates off the muffler... I've been considering re-routing the line down the passenger side, just under the fuel supply line.

I installed a white board in the garage to keep a to-do list going for the CJ. It has a variety of tasks listed on it, including dirty and clean jobs, time consuming and quickie jobs. This way, when I have a few minutes to spare I can go out and pick an easy job and do it. I'm hoping it saves me a lot of that time I spend going "Hmm, what could I do with these 15 minutes I have but not get my work clothes dirty. Usually it takes me 15 minutes to look at all the projects and decide on which thing to do next...

It's not really that bright and it's all aimed strait at the ground. Not distracting at all. I had them in my bronco and now in my jeep. They are great.

Swapped out my fixed column for a tilt column ..... don't understand why a lot of folks think it's hard. Took about an hour start to finish and $45 at the JY.

Finally got my Jerry cans installed. I added two tubes to the back of the roof rack to attach the Jerry Can mounts. One of the cans is the toolbox can which is nice to have around with a 36 year d vehicle!
