It's up off Squaw Pass a mile or two before Echo Lake and the turn off for the Mt. Evans Rd.

Jacket, yup. The soft top is old (the first batch sent over by Ehsan) and by taking it off for the winter I am hoping to extend the life for a few more years. I'd like to say the hard top is warmer, but between the poor fitting top-to-windshield frame gasket and poor old decrepit door gaskets the rig is drafty as an open air horse buggy.
The hardtop looks great Ricardo , much better than the camo did, in my opinion anyway.

I'd guess that the hardtop is not any more drafty than a soft top and if you get a few more years out of the softy, you're good. ;

As an alternative, you could run a bikini top in the summer and the softy in the winter if ya don't want to hassel with taking the hardtop on/off and if its just as drafty as the softy Anyway its all good!

Great pics! You were close home for me but couldna gone anyway as I was helping Zach with the rust removal on his pig. He's stoked about bringing it to the RS meeting. Wednesday.

No. I didn't want to interrupt. I heard you at the same time Nakman jumped on.
