Bestop All Weather Trail Cover

With all the sudden summer downpours in Boston lately this is my new favorite convenience item. While I know it is a Jeep and it has been rained in numerous times, I'll avoid it if I can. I can throw this on by myself in a couple of minutes. Simple, effective and completely water proof.

Awesome. Lately I've just been driving around with my front freedom panels on and letting the back get rained in. Keeps me pretty dry throughout all the storms we've had but I have been debating getting one of those emergency tops. I just feel like I'll see it's raining and be like ahhhh who cares and the emergency top will go to waste

This thread is incredibly detailed. I really like the look you have pulled off with this Jeep. My wife and I went through the same thing on my last TJ, and we are doing it again now on a JKU we recently purchased.

I've been caught in downpours several times already this summer. If I know it's coming I'll throw the cover on ... a lot quicker and easier than pulling the soft top up and zipping in windows. It is also nice to keep the dew off the seats if I've got to be on the road early in the morning.

Thank you. It would have been a lot easier to have done the build thread from the beginning rather than trying to remember when things were done and in what order. Make sure you start one for your JKU and update it as you go!

2013 PA Jeeps All Breeds Show

Today I sent in a registration for the PA Jeeps All Breeds Show … woo hoo! Entered my Jeep in the show again but don’t expect any placement. Our major mods number more than 4, so we fall in the “Unlimited” class where the sentiments seem to be “bigger is better”.

My shopping list isn’t very long this year but it is always fun to see the demo and prototype rigs and the latest and greatest toys.

It’s always a good time. Please stop by and say hello if you attend!

Next Mod Teaser #2

No guesses on the card board box so here is another clue for our next modification. Iím going to be pressing TOGM to get it done before the PA Jeep Show in 2 1/2 weeks but I doubt it will happen.

Gain Dishwashing Liquid Magic

A few months ago I read a thread about Gain Dishwashing liquid being used to remove the sound/heat shield under the carpet. I tried it and it is magic! A big thank you to TheBoss (IIRC) for this helpful tip! A soak overnight and it peels / scrapes right off in big strips.

Just went through the entire thread. Love this build. I am going to at some point install most of these exact items so its great to see what they will look like when i am finished.

And my guess for whats in the box would be a Trail Cage from PSC.
