Yeah my neighbors got a kick out of it one dirty old man stood on his balcony drinking a Milwaukee's Beast staring at my fiancee while she was handing me tools hahaha, gotta love Fort Worth!!!!

THanks for the replies, i drove around yesterday before the skies opened up and we got like 3 in. of rain withthe top off and the Dirty Dog shade made it quite pleasant, the wind was managable and the sun was really cut down. All in all really nice and especially cool that your soft top fits right over it, never have to take it off except to clean!!! Laughing

that bumper looks really good. does it attach to the bash bar or just covers it?

i like the top also. does it flap around alot? how does the rear attach on the front part? looks like it would catch the wind alot since there aren't any straps on the leading edge of the rear section.

both look great

The XRC bolts right up to the stock JK mounts and then the frame rail below bumper mounts. I think that is what you were referring to as the "Bash Rail", I had to drill four 1/2" holes for the bolts on the rail. All in all there 10 heavy duty points of contact for this bumper pretty solid if you ask me!!

As for the Dirty Dog shade each edge is secured to the sound box with velcro. I drove around yesterday at highway speeds and were moments when the screen did flap mainly passing large trucks, but the flapping was very minimal. There are 2 straps connecting the rear section to the front, from the instructions it was not clear if that was the correct position for them. But I made an executive decision and attached them to the 2 panels!! :teacher:

I have the SpiderWeb ShadeTop on my TJ, and I love it. Doesn't flap, either. I mean, it moves around with the wind, but it doesn't do so in a major way or a way that causes noise.
