            If i remember correctly, it was somewhere around $1300 shipped. Have to call for updated prices.

                I have one on my 97 TJ that I bought from gr8. I really like it. I had to cut the original sport bar and took off the rear half. I reinforced the inside bars. It really cuts down on noise and is an easy one man job to put on and remove. If I can figure out how to post a picture of my "mini scrambler", I wil show it off.

                    We talked to the guys who make the GR8Tops at the dixie run and looked at the product. Theyre very well built from the two examples we saw. They fit together nicely and appear to be waterproof. You do have to modifiy your roll cage to make them fit though. This does not lower your safety but just something you should consider.

                      This should be more than sufficent reinforcement, the highlighted (yellow parts) are what you get. It's from Poison Spyder, called the trail cage, and it's cheap at $298.80.

                            Looks like the rear tire fender hump. that's what it looks like with no cage bolted to it.

                              Muddeprived, thanks for posting the pics for me. What you see in the box is the top of the tire well. Fixing to have a spray on bed liner installed in the box. I am thinking about swapping out the factory tailgate with a drop down one off a CJ. When I have my dog box in the back my labs don't have have a platform to jump on to get in their box. Lifting 2 100# labs gets old. I want to replace the 30x9.50 BFG AT's with a set of 32x9.50 BFG AT's and I am wondering if 2" coil spring spacers and OME shocks would give me enough lift. A friend just gave me a set of '05 Rubicon springs that I am thinking about replacing my original shocks with. I plan to replace the stock wheels with Soft 8 15x8's. I have a stock 4 banger. Should there be any problems that I might need to know about. Any suggestions? Thanks again.
