Re: Truck For Sale
How much of a pain in the ass is the top to get on/off the new Jeeps?  I had a CJ-7 when I was at Auburn, and it sucked.  And when someone decided to put a knife through it multiple times at Patio apartments, I just used a bikini top full time.

The factory soft top is a two person operation.  The BestTop that I have is a two person operation to fully install it, one person to remove it, but it rolls back which is how it is in the pic and that is pretty easy.

The factory hard top for the 4 door models has basically T-Tops for the front seats that are super easy to remove, three latches and it's done.  The back half of the hard top is a two person job because it weighs about 150lbs.

At the risk of opening myself up to photoshop hell and copious amounts of ridicule....


I've got 400 bucks saved up and a Murray lawn tractor if you are interested in a trade.

It's a Wrangler, not a CJ-5.

Re: Truck For Sale
Sweet I like the flat tube fender flares and the stub bumber.

How do you like the best-top soft top?  Leak at all?

No leaks at all.  Mine is their original Trektop, but I would highly recommend not getting that in favor of their new Trektop NX.  On mine the rear section with the windows cannot be separated from the top and the top rolls back.  On the NX it can convert to a safari top by taking off the rear section separately and the top folds back.  Seems to be much easier to live with.

Here is my baby BTW.  I haven't done much yet.  Neoprene seat covers, painted the rims, and added the step bar.

Looking at Craigs list for soft tops.

Re: Truck For Sale
Eventually I want to:

Change out fender flares
2" lift kit
33" and different rims.
new front bumper.
soft top
 and thinking about changing out the front grill.

Love this one.

Just noticed that this thread had come back to life.  If you want 33"'s you don't need a lift.  Just go with flat fenders and wheels with 4.25" of backspacing (or spacers on stock rims).  With a 2" lift and flat fenders you can run 35" tires.  A lot of guys that wheel recommend that as it keeps the CG lower.

I would also recommend getting on www.jkowners.com
