What did you do to your TJ today?

Mine came with the front bow, it has the stamp. Don't bother me at all!!!

I thought all Trektop NX came with the bow??
Bestop stopped putting in the front bow in the Trektop in the last couple years. They said that in their "opinion" you don't need it. You can call their customer service and buy it separately if you wanted it and yours didn't come with it. Probably just another way to cut cost and get another part sale.

I won't be upset if it has the stamp. Would I like it better without, yes.

Mine must have been new old stock, I bought it off Amazon within the last year. :unsure::unsure:

I got mine in early March from Amazon and have the front bow too. I'd say Amazon probably has a good stock of them across the country. I just got a Bestop trail cover from Amazon that was sent to them from Bestop in 2022 per the shipping label on the box.

What was the issue with it? I got a Bestop Trex Top from Amazon that I'm hoping to put on this week.

I bought a replace a top… waited 2 months for delivery and when it was delivered they had sent a front seat for a CJ. 🙈
 
Finished assembling the half doors. Need a set of new uppers.. the ones I have are FUBAR.
Made a few snubber spacers via 3D printing. This one was a discard I test fit.. proof of concept and all that. The printer ran out of black.. hence the grey stripe.

Got my Blackstone report. Never done one before, but if I’m reading the summary correctly, nothing to be concerned about. 39k miles on the jeep.


: There’s a little extra lead in this sample, but everything else looks quite good. Lead shows bearing wear, but we doubt there's bearing problem since that usually leaves more iron, copper, and tin in the oil as well. These other wear metals compare nicely to universal averages, which show typical wear for
the 4.0L Jeep after ~3,900 miles on the oil. A low viscosity is harmless without fuel dilution as the culprit, and we didn't
didn't detect fuel or other contaminants. Check back at your next regular oil change to see how lead
is trending
