If you mean actual carbon fiber, it may have bad static due to not being grounded? I dunno. Our carbon fiber tools and parts don't seem to collect any more dust than the metal ones.
The wrap stuff. The weave just picks up and holds the dirt. True CF is hard and smooth. At least the stuff we have.

Not a HUGE fan of the cowl fiberglass hood...but I do like that style of hoods. The Durham hoods are nice too. They have a flat fender as opposed to the Campbell hood.

By "we" you mean Blaine made them, right?

Interested in seeing the "Savvy Off Road Roll Cage"... maybe I'll be glad that I've financially been unable to pull the tigger on the Poly Perf Cage!

You would be better off buying the Poly Cage then the cage we are building. It is one off and made to do one trail. Helldorado, Area BFE. If you know this trail you will understand why we are building it the way we are.

I don't know the trail, unfortunately, but will be interested to see it (both the trail and the purpose built cage)... I wish you guys would do some Alum. Windshield Armor that covers the entire side of the frame (unlike the other options out there) since I've recently messed mine up, but I won't pollute your build thread with what I'd like you to build...

I'm just happy to see that your not going "full JK" on all your new stuff and not forgetting us TJ/LJ guys!

Does Chris still make his hoods? I saw him at Moab and I forgot to ask him.

Good question. Looks like he does on his website. KORE out of Tulsa, OK sells them now too.

Awesome build. But at the same time I hate it, it makes me want to blow up everything I've done and am doing to my LJ and start over. Will be fun to watch.

Appears you are correct. So maybe just Durham and Campbell for now.
