    TAKE IT OFF, TAKE IT ALL OFF..............


    Bikini Top or tarp attached to a cage would be cool.

    Strip it down! :grin:

    I don't trailer my rig, but I do live in the Nevada desert :)

    I don't have the doors, tailgate, or top on and love it!

    When I do get to the trailering stage I will most llikely cut the roof off and modify the front and rear fenders to my liking :)

    take it off...like someone mentioned use a tarp over the "valuable" things inside you don't want wet. Then when you wheel in the rain...BE A MAN :grin:

    if i had mine on a trailer i would strip that mo fo.

    tube doors would be cool and keep ya safer then no doors,

    tailgate - i would ATLEAST GUT IT and sell the window and the regulator. Then i would weld in some sheet metal throw on some hinges and some locks with a layer of clear plexyglass and you got yourself a dam good tool box

    roof - cut it and use a tarp for a cheapo bikini top. :) maby even get out the sawzall and make it a full convertable. :)

    Even though I have a trailer I'm not stripping mine out. It will get some tube doors this year (next project) but I'm leaving the roof alone. With the wife and kids it's nice not to have to worry about them sitting in the sun all day getting sunburn

    leave it full body, its much more fun squeezing a full body rig through the trails around here, especially when the jeeps guys and stuff watch you slam the body into trees or rocks. :D
