We've had ours for about 14 months, just now saw this thread. It's my wife's dd and removing the top or doors would not be a good idea where she parks it in the city while at work. Anyway, she loves it. Just had all three tow hooks powdercoated hot pink.

Just did a couple thousand miles in my Recon for 4th of July week. The Jeep did great! From Washington to Southeast Utah (family visit, no time for Moab trails sadly), Valley of the Gods, Arizona's Tonto forest, Grand Canyon, and Bryce Canyon. It was so much fun.

Hi. What top is this, and what's the install process like? Wife and I were talking about putting something over the removed freedom panels the other day when the sun was beating down on us on an otherwise nice-weather drive.

My dealership is getting in a White Recon with everything soon, should I go and trade in my Grand Cherokee for it? I've become obsessed with Recons.
I understand your obsession. Especially those Recon / 4xe wheels. I'm obsessed with those wheels.

Looks like an Alien Shade. Folks have had mixed success with that brand, we have one, had a couple of the bungees break, they sent a replacement set. It's not too bad putting it in, the last few bungees you put in are extremely snug.

Much obliged, thank you!

Would you buy it again?

How is the sun blocking aspect of it? Basically just want it to keep me from sweating when it's a comfortable 80 degrees, but clear blue skies and the sun is right overhead just radiating down on my face!

Ya I would get it again. It's like a very tight woven solar screen or those shades they put up over the playgrounds around here. So it does an excellent job of keeping the sun off you. I burn very easy so this thing was a must for me.

I’ll jump in! It’s been a while since I Had a Jeep before this Recon. I love it! I’m debating wheels or wondering if I should just stick 35’s on the stock wheels. What are you guys planning?

Late reply I know, but the Recon wheels are so damn awesome, I don't know why anybody would replace them unless the tire size absolutely required different wheels. :) I hope you stuck with these wheels!! I'm considering 35s (315 wide) with these wheels as a future modification.
