For $23, how much of the cage were you able to cover?

I just needed to do the two bars between the windshield frame and the main hoop as the factory padding was looking pretty rough around the Rock Hard cage - I had to zip tie them together as a temporary fix

Here's a couple of snapshots showing the Rapz in place. Since the stock padding is so fitted, the stretchy neoprene Rapz made the install really easy - just cut to length and then cut notches for the bars. I'm definitely happy with how it turned out as having these two pieces custom made was starting to look expensive

The velcro on the inside sticks right to the the neoprene making it really easy to create a nice, clean seam that lays flat. I'm glad they did it this way rather than having to mate to another piece of velcro.

Here you can see the factory padding at left and the Rapz at right... not too bad looking and damn hard to tell the difference without looking close (like this).

After my LED tail/turn/stop light mod my flashers were way too fast. Sounded much like a machine gun. Anyway, pulled that relay out from under the steering wheel and cut the appropriate curcuit and it was all golden then. Flasher working normal again. Thanks Stu, for the write up on that.

carved up a plywood hard tonneau to serve as a prototype for an aluminum one. scratched up the roll cage while i did it though.

also switched out the factory bestop windjammer buckles and nylon with straps and side release buckles from strapworks.com .... now, i can leave the windjammer in the jeep, and when it rains, buckle it right up. takes seconds.
