Absolutely love it so far. Keeps everything tight but doesn't push me to one side or the other and I really like the relocation bracket because this should be the last one I'll ever buy because it's up and out of the way. My biggest problem with it so far is that it was YELLOW! Also I thought the instructions were pretty crappy but it was manageable.

I like those, makes for a cool looking Jeep. Your Jeep as a whole looks great the way you have it; black and silver, the decals and of course the safari straps.

That reminds me of the days when I was a kid and pushed a lawn mower around asking people if they wanted their lawns mowed.

I need extra cash since Iím a Jeep owner and could go door to door asking people if they need any stumps removed. I just need to figure out what to charge.

Anyhow all kidding aside, thanks for the memories and cool pic.

I have absolutely no road noise. They are very tight and I've been running my Jeep just how you saw it in the picture above: freedom panels, doors, no back top and Safari Straps. Rain or shine and I love it!

That's how I roll too! Just remember to pull ALL the drain plugs. I forgot about the ones under the front mats two weekends ago, doh!

Been getting a decent amount of funny looks as it's raining



Update: Will hopefully be scooping some new tires soon to replace my slicks!

My buddy found a great craigslist deal on some 35x12.5R17 BFG KM2s with 90-95% tread on 4 and 100% tread on the spare so I finally got my old KM2s off (slicks) and got these installed today and couldn't be happier.






I also realized that this picture is hypocritical because I have my hard top on when I said I drive with it all summer and I did put the top back on for a "Tornado Warning" but it is back off!

I just had to replace my KM2s a couple of months ago. I think they are a great tire and have been running them for the last 5-6 years. They actually handle pretty good on wet streets besides off road.
