    If you just want it painted, you can do it yourself with rattle cans. If you take your time, it'll come out real nice. Otherwise, any body shop will do it too and will color match it for you if you want. For the money, I just paid Off Road Evolution to have mine sent out and get powder coated.

    Don't know if I trust myself. haha. And I think I like the idea of having it powder coated as well. Thanks for the help!

    What is the reason for having the front center bars connecting the front top bar to the B-Pillar roll bar off-centered in the Rubicat? Are there any benefits from this?

    What makes you think they are off center?

    Looks centered to me....

    Do you still have the Tuffy overhead security CB console from the Rubicat? I might know someone who'd help take it off your hands for the right price.

    I called Rockhard and asked them about the Bluetooth mic in the drivers side A-frame upper, and they said that would be fine as well.

    What do you (they) mean by fine? I haven't put my A-frame upper trim back in yet, but I remember thinking that I'd have to relocate the mic hole. Right now it's just zip-tied to the Rockard cage.

    That's all I've done.

    What would you recommend using for the clearancing you mentioned where the hard top meets the clamp?

    A die grinder with a sanding disc will clearance it in seconds. You just need to be delicate and skim a little at a time.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
