thanks to you both.

the rear basket is 100000 times better than the rack up top.

the basket goes in and out with 30 seconds if you line it up great.
the roof top, you need a trust worthy partner so you dont pierce the top, then you have to tighten the clamps around the bars. then you have to hope to fit in the garage. blah blah blah..... all i did was stack water up there for our trip. those 3 case of water were gone in 4 days.


figured by now i would have a bunch of crap from everyone for:
* wearing flip flops
* all the bungee cords
or something else.

*Are you seriously wearing Reefs? Rainbows are where it's at, bro!
*How'd you get up there? Did the same helper who helped you get the rack up there also lift you onto the rollcage? And if not, get some damn wingtop protectors!

There was that good enough?

I would disagree on the Rainbows. Try some Olukia flip flops and get back to me.

I believe this Tithonus was just at Safari HP. If it was it started as a hard top and was converted to a soft top by them. It looks like the wolf top has been modified by adding windows to it.

Driving with my five year old in Palos Verdes, I saw a yellow 95/97 speeding down the road.

Barry: Sophia look out the window. What kind of car is that.
Sophia: a defender. I don't like them in yellow. They look like jeeps.

I've taught her well.

I know what you mean... when I saw this one I must have walked around it at least 15 times, with a smile that made my face hurt. I fell hard..
