    3/4 length bikini top

    How is it that a 3/4 length bikini top that shades the back seat isn't readily available? Anyone know where to get one or do they have to be made? Has anyone retrofitted one from one of the jk's or such that are longer?

I even bought the spice carpet, decals dash ect. But the Olympic white with silver 85 Laredo combo keeps gnawing at me. I'd really like to see...

    It is a classic brand which I am not familiar with, and the guy is asking $1000 or $500 and a pistol. He says it's just dirty but that there are no issues. What do you guys think about price, condition concerns and brand?

    Well, I didn't see wheels listed anywhere so Im posting my question here

    First off, are there wheels out there that look like the jeep wagon wheels that are not? I bought a set and wonder if they are real. Second, between 15x7 & 15x8, what's the difference between the ability to put a slightly thicker tire on the 8? Advantages? Cons? I would think the 8 makes rubbing...

    Hard top vs. soft top

    I want/need (relative term isn't it) a full top for the scrambler and I try to be both thrifty and honest with myself. Thrifty in that I only want to buy one top and honest in that I know I am lazy and won't swap tops enough to justify buying two. So what are the pros and cons of a hard vs...
