Finally decided which top I want to order for the jeep. Gonna get the Bestop Trektop NX.
Now I need some insight as far as the color. Which is like the OEM black:
Black Diamond or Black Denim?
The only reason I ask is I have already gotten gol if a set of black soft uppers that were from a factory top. I can't really see a difference in the colors on the web, but know there has to be a difference.
Thanks for the help.

Black denim is 97-02 (97-00 non-sailcloth 01-02 sailcloth)
Black diamond is 03-06 (all sailcloth)

The black diamond is a deeper black if that makes sense.

The black denim looks more faded.

...that being said, I've only seen black denim non-sailcloth....idk how much color difference there is between them both in sailcloth, but I think what I said still stands

Edit: from TXST8tj's thread

Black diamond on the left:

Removed thermostat housing, thermostat, upper and lower radiator hose, and the water pump. All because my water pump bearing seized up on me. Replacing all of it tomorrow when my parts get here.

Installed UCF Lopro mount and cruise control switches out of a Grand Cherokee. Got the servo as well. The throttle cable is a little short so I will be doing some modifications to it soon.

The one I got is not for a wrangler at all, it was out of a grand Cherokee that I will be modifying. I am not even sure it will work but my guess is that it will since the servo looks exactly the same just the cable is shorter.
In regards to an Unlimited (LJ) it should be the same as a 03-06 TJ.

Today I got a little more work done. I really wanted to do the Vanco brake upgrade, but really don't want to stick that kind of money into these axles. So I got EBC front brakes from Amazon for $192.86 EBC GD7204 Rotors, and DP71255 Pads. I just took quick before and after pics, not too much involved in replacing pads and rotors.

Went up freeway 50 thru Lake Tahoe, down to 395 in Carson City - north up to Reno and 80 to Boomtown Cabelas where I picked up 5,000 rounds of ammo that was on backorder....for 14 months! Took 80 out to 49 and south back home. Found several back roads that were snow covered to play on - great day in the Jeep...
More snow coming in tomorrow

Took my jeep out in a huge snow storm this morning and in the snow, even without 4x4 it's still better than most trucks with it, just needs a little more gas pedal!

Oh damn now thats what im talking about, how much was all that? i've been needing .357 ammo and .38 special for my new revolver but every time i go anywhere its never in stock. I think this shortage is all created by the producers themselves just to jack up the price, that along with the outrageous liberals attacking the supply chain. Some place wanted $35 for 20 rounds of .357 still haven't bought any but the price has got to come down at some point its crazy.

Yep, time to learn how to reload. Cost me around $8.00 for 50 rounds of .357 to make.
