After way too much time wet sanding, priming, wet sanding, painting, wet sanding, clear coating and polishing; my mistakes in painting my dash panels are hardly noticeable - so they got re-installed this evening.

I installed PRP seat covers (Daytona red) and the insaneaudio JL3001 9 inch head unit. Just like being in a completely different jeep now.

Thanks @insaneaudio and @prpseats for an incredible upgrade on both accounts.

(The backseat are running 1 day behind due to shipping)

Nice job, even if it took some extra TLC to get it looking OEM ! Big fan of the painted dash panels here. Jeep should have color coded each interior dash panel to its exterior. I swapped my grey for the Rubicon Red and couldn't be happier with it against my white Jeep.

Installed the American Adventure Labs M.A.S.S. Cargo Shelf. Pricey, but incredible build quality and they show that it can work with the soft top. If my soft top is on, I usually leave it in safari mode so I'm not worried about the folded top sitting a little higher in the back. I like that it will offer some deterrence to people messing with whats in my cargo area while in safari mode, but mostly excited to be able to strap more of my gear down securely for the trails. Between this and the frame from RR Backbone, there are a bunch of places to strap more gear down.

Nice! Is that removable, too? What does it weigh?

Weighs about 30-35 pounds total. You could either remove 8 bolts and take out the shelf and leave the brackets or you might be able to remove the 4 bolts holding the brackets and remove the whole thing. Its not a quick disconnect system or anything, but it is really sturdy and high quality.

I must have been super exhausted as I replied to the wrong thread!!
We’ve all been there!

I was a touch confused but then read Bestop makes the top materials, even for the OEM production stuff? Is that true?

True. Bestop is the OEM supplier.

How long did the seat cover install take?

Therefore the "premium" top = the black twill?
Yep. I have the Sunrider for Hardtop and it is exactly the same material as on my premium soft top.
