Look at building a top out of 16 gauge. The Myers top I have is very light even with the glass in it. It felt about half the weight of the yj top I had on it.
I agree. One of my biggest complaints about AWD/4WD is the added cost of the components, and the drivetrain HP loss you're going to see with it.
This is nowhere near a correct figure, but if you say there's a 20% loss in a typical 2WD setup, what do you think that loss is thru a 4WD setup? 35%?
