Don't use sillycone, I've heard it will trap moisture and promote rust. I've been told butyl rubber is what you want. It comes in caulk tubes too.Other than it leaking like a sieve over the windshield, I love it. I'm going to pull the stock gaskets out and use black silicon to reseal the gaps. There is so much headroom, I can stand up in the cab.
With people asking $1k+ for hard tops, it's really hard NOT to just weld one up.. ****, even a shop would charge less than that.. couple hours plus materials....Other than it leaking like a sieve over the windshield, I love it.

looking suspicious near a school was the crime. Pulling in, letting your kids out doesn’t allow time for the mind to wander. It’s over and solved before anyone can get too nervous. Or pick up a phone.And you didnt get raided? Wow, thats a mile stone, I got raided for parking across the school for 5 mins with 8 police cars and they were all 6' tall on steroids, not the donut cops.
Good idea. I have often thought about offering mine to the local FD and PD and Game Warden. Then Harvey showed up, and I just went. And they were more than grateful. In fact, we were greeted by Houston Police Chief himself twice. Once with a request for help, and once with a box of doughnuts!Here’s what I did, when I first got my truck registered and road worthy, I drove it down to the police station in my town. I parked it and went inside and talked to my police chief. I told him my hobby and offered him my truck with no questions asked if they ever needed it for any situation that ever came up.
I sure hope you don't beat yourself too much about that, Buffalobwana, you're not the first to go there.The last three days, I literally should have done something else as I have had to cut off everything I have welded on or toss everything I have made. So frustrating.
I cut out a fairlead mount, drilled the holes, (paid zero attention to the numbers I was using as a measurement) fairlead fit nice. Clamp to bumper in prep for welding, look at winch sitting on bench, look at fairlead and nice polished fairlead mount.
The sinking feeling hits me. I have made a beautiful mount for a 10” fairlead. (Winch is 12” OC)
