    Think I changed my mind on color combo, anyone have pics?

    I like that red/orange 81-82 posted above, on white. And it would go with the tan stuff you already have.

    I think it would look awesome with silver decals in the 81-82 or the 83-84 pattern. And it would certainly be unique. It was very hard to find any white CJs with silver decals. But you'd have to change your interior color scheme. The tan wouldn't go. Not a great picture, but. I've always loved...

    Been a while since we had a Beer thread...

    Anyone else try the SN Resilience yet? Nice dry hop flavor. Not my fav, but pretty delicious. Hopefully they raise a ton of $ for the people devastated by the fire.

    Any of you NOVA guys remember this place?

    Small world. We lived in Broadlands VA from 07-13. We really liked Leesburg, but I've never heard of that place.

    Soft tops for scramblers

    I like the look of this too. (y) Speaking of soft tops, I'd REALLY love replace-a-top material in a thick 'sailcloth' for my Bestop top. After having a sailcloth top on my TJ the thin material on my 8's Bestop soft top is very inadequate. I tried to encourage Bestop to offer this but I think...

    Salt - when is the road safe?

    Salt makes me :angry:& :crazy:. I wouldn't drive anything nice on the roads here in MI until you can't see the salt residue on the road any longer. Their is no hard rule for when that will be.

    If you like the Mosaic hop try Mosaic-Hero from Revolution Brewing sometime. Imo, very good. I do love my Founders. If you haven't tried the Azacca ipa you're missing out. It's a winter seasonal. Very delicious. 😋 And of course the Centennial ipa. Yum!

    Cragar SS?

    Another vote for the Turbines! Probably a PITA to keep clean though with all those 'vanes'. I think the factor wagon wheels are cool, in 15x8.

    Gladiator

    Speaking of headroom in the driver seat, when I had my TJ I had tons of headroom. And I remember thinking, from a designer point of view, that Jeep should consider lowering the roof on these a little to improve aero. I wonder what happened with the JL.

    WOW, what a crazy top and interesting bed rail. 'A' for effort!

    I hear ya. It would be interesting to do some investigating into why the JL seats/cockpit are so different from the JK.

    I also noticed how high you sit in these. I'm 6-6'1. I didn't try adjusting the seat down. When these cockpits are layed out they should be designed to accommodate the vast majority of the population size. They have 3D manikins in various percentages of the population. It's a delicate balance to...
