    Simple and cheap and that means more money for other Jeep parts

    Guessing your winters will make a hard top more useful to keep hanging around.
    It's funny because got a hard top on just about every Jeep we've bought but eventually sold all of them. This might be the first one we keep.

    This is true. Back when we still lived in SoCal, we hung our hard top like this and it could be a pain to deal with. Fortunately, I have a shop in the back

    Love the drone footage! Thatís a great solution. I stored one for a 2 door, on a cart. It was always in the way.
