Modular Jeep Hard Top

May '17

Fiberglass is not my favorite material to work with. I learned this during this project, my first large-scale foray into composites.

I followed Jeff Scherb's instructions on Expedition Portal, and added a little bit of my chaotic personality to it (read: screwed up a bit).

I am able to remove the side windows and rear glass, while keeping the roof over my head. This prevents me from getting more sunburnt scalps.

As far as I know, this is the only modular hard top for a Jeep JK Wrangler being run right now - I'd love to see more in use!

This project was way too intensive and chaotic to make a decent quality video of, so my full photo dump is available here.

Ask me about:

  • how I like the functionality of the top
  • my experience using Monstaliner truck bedliner
  • if I'll ever mess with fiberglass again
  • most outstanding mistakes
  • noise reduction
