After months of horrible hood flutter or whatever you call it. I installed daystar hood wranglers. Now no worries at 80mph. They where so tight i couldnt even install them. But after 3 mins in front of the hair dryer they latched right on.

Another Set of LED Halo Projector headlights

The first set failed, and although they were better than factory, the new Projector models have a much brighter and more even lighting pattern. I also added the little 15" rubber antenna so my lazy *** can drive through the carwash now without the antenna beating on the windshield. I KNOW I KNOW wash it yourself. Anyway the little antenna is about 95% effective. Some of the weaker stations went away, but the good news is I don't lose stations at night when the LED headlights come on. With the big factory antenna I was getting some noise on stations below 95.3 FM 95.5 and up worked fine, now with the little rubber thing. No effect from lights.

The Halo Rings are a bit smaller on the new version, more like some other Halo styles.

Not sure how old your JK is but my 17' does the good old hood flutter when heading into the wind. Anybody try this "Hop-Stopper" from ORO?

Picked it up after getting the back up camera, remote start, tints and the wheels powder coated. This is my 17 after working out a deal to get rid of my 16 that had some leak issues.

Installed a Harken Hoister to remove my hardtop

With the weather hitting into the 70's and 80's in New Hampshire, it was time to switch out the hard and soft top.

I spent about 2.5 hours yesterday setting up the Harken Hoister system in my garage. I got it here:

Installation was straight forward and worked like a charm the very first time. I am sure my buddy appreciates not having to give me a hand changing the top out. (I've taken it off by myself in the past but it wasn't fun nor particularly safe so I ditched that inspirational idea).

Took my 2015 JKU to the dealer today because of a coolant smell at the nose (30,500 miles). [Smell for the past couple weeks, but no coolant drips or obvious drop in coolant level, etc.].

Dealer replaced the radiator under warranty and gave me a free oil and filter change.

I think you're going to be very happy with it. I used mine so much last summer. Takes about 5-10 minutes to get the top on or off.

I did the same thing! But with the harbor frieght 440lb hoist. Took me alot longer to install since i had to make a strap n get extra bungee cords to hold it up so all the weight isnt on the hoist

I can't tell from the picture are you using bungee cords to hold the top?
like through the hoist and just bungees?
or are you just doing that and then lowering it to the ground?
