That is a beautiful rig... We are right in your wheelhouse. We upgraded to 31.5 Falken Wildpeaks to fit the stock rims. Gives some serious clearance. When are we gonna start having the "toad Trailhawk" getogether... we are in.

Nice setup. Four down is so much nicer. We started with a tow dolly. Did that for a couple months with an old '99 Saturn. I didn't really mind the dolly when using it, I just didn't like the storage aspect. We found our '13 CR-V for sale all set up for towing with all the equipment. Sold the dolly and the Saturn for more than I paid and we have never looked back.

Is that a new paint job on your TJ ? What year is it ? Looks GREAT ?

Ours is a 2000 and has factory paint on it...hood has some oxidation...we call it patina ! Bought the new soft top and found an OEM hardtop which, unbelievably, is close to new. LOVE OUR TJ !!

Thanks Bob! we loved the red and when we knew it needed a new top, we thought the tan would not only look good, but be cooler than a black top.
I will tell Ron you said he should paint RV Red !! haha !
Have you guys decided what you are going to do ?

I like that !! For some reason, the hardtop looked like the type which fits the older models...I did waaaay to much research before we bought this one !!
