I want the sun, but I burn really easy. Seriously, within minutes I'll look like a lobster (plus my family has a history of skin cancer). I didn't get a bikini top because I didn't want to buy a header as well. Maybe one day if I get the Rampage bowless.

Still has an open top feel, but I am not fried at the end of the day when wheeling. Plus, it is tough to damage when laid into a tree

Also, after about a week of topless riding, I'm dark as a Mexican.

this is true dude, I looked like that suntan lady that was in the news a long while back...leather skin for sure. I made one out of white vinyl, it turned out cool, but not cheaper than the spidershade

Yeah. All it took was grinding about 1/8" around the center loop. It didn't let me push the bracket down far enough to screw in.

Then I took about 1/2" off the back of the plastic since now the plastic doesn't tuck above the windshield.

Took her off road down at the end of my "dead end" road. Only dead end if you don't drive a jeep

Replaced my OPDA with a Dorman.

Put the dash back together after tracking down some dirty connections that were causing my gauges to stop working. Was a dirty connector under the steering wheel on the lower left panel. Looked like it had gotten wet and corroded. I painted the dash plastic iwith matte fusion paint and it looks pretty good.

Replaced Blower Motor Resistor

I swapped in a new blower motor resistor, and now I have four speeds of airflow again. Found one for $15 by looking around. Some places wanted $30+

Alright... Changed the backing track to a number from Kill Paris. Should be accessible on your phones and what not now. Thanks for watching

I did the same thing today. "Most people think this is a dead end" I said to myself.
