Installed the @DesertDoesIt seat jackers today. Quick and easy install and it sure changes the seat base angle quite a bit! I'm going to have to get used to it but I can already tell it should alleviate the nerve pinching sensation these stock seats seem to give alot of us.

Been looking at a soft top. What's the major difference in the Trektop and the Trektop Ultra?
The Trektop sunrider feature only folds back for the front. On the Ultra you fold back for both front and back seats. Also the Ultra folds all the way back and down similar to the OEM soft top when you remove the windows. The Trektop only can run as a bikini top when the windows are off.
So the extra 650.00 gets you full sunrider and fully down.

Installed motobilt led tail light conversions. Along with this I made new wiring harnesses for the tail lights so everything is plug and play with the factory connector. This way I can completely go back to stock if needed without having to repair any wires. Just unplug one and plug in the other.

Be warned. The seat jacker is great but be cautious if you live near water, humidity, or moisture of any kind. The bolts provided will rust if your neighbor sneezes within 100 yards.

Here is mine after 2 months.

Made a little more progress on my storage compartment. All the big pieces are complete. Now to get the brackets made for the vertical pieces to tie into cargo tie downs.

Looks good! Is it necessary that the side verticals are walls? Could you achieve the same support with a few well placed vertical strips, sort of like studs, rather than vertical walls? Going with "studs" could gain you back a bit of space, both from the wall thickness and also the area above the fenders. It's not much, but I have the diabolical slipstream which has a similar design but is using a couple of key pieces for vertical support. I keep some rain gear and an extra hat stuffed up above the fenders that way I always have them if I need them. I'm in a 2 door so every bit of space I have is valuable.

That's not rust, that's built-in Loctite! 😉
