I have seen it in person and I have to say I like the blue better, but i'm not a big fan of the color yellow.

Everyone has different tastes. It's stronger and more stable than it was before, that was the ultimate goal.

Yeah, means nothing to me except the opportunity to poke at you. It looks good. (well, maybe not the blue)

With that in mind, body armor won't do much good for your hard top.

Thanks for the heads up! I figured he was joking but I don't know Jim well enough to tell so given the amount of time and work put into this, the last thing anyone wants to hear is that it was better before.

The hard top keeps the 3yo smiling on the trail. We had an experience half way through Python with a hail/rain storm without a top. Need to get a new to me soft top too. The old one is torn to the point that it wont stay stretched anymore.

Future plans include reworking the cage, suspension seats, and removing the body lift.
