That would look better proportioned on an unlimited. That would be cool to have though.

He is getting a cage made right now for this one shown in pics above.
He said the plan is to have a cage for front of rig and then one behind hard top so you can take the hard top off easily.

Kinda like a scrambler halftop

Is he able to recline the seat at all?

I only ask because AEV's roof for the Brute is longer (at least visually it looks longer) and it allow the seat to be reclines two notches.

Just curious.

Why didnt he fab a removable bulkhead, ie the CJ8? Seems like it would be a better idea. Probably easier to put it, minus the huge ass rear section of that top. Also would allow a better point to store cargo against. Fiberglass is tough, but I would want some steel in there. Especially if you had heavy chit back there. I loose highlift would smash that top to pieces.

I bet you would sell the hell out of those. I assume they would work on the unlimited model too---I bet that would be really popular. The guys that are into hunting around here do that a lot on the CJ/YJs. They take the Scrambler halfcab and bulkhead and put it on the CJ/YJ and use an early cj5 roll cage.

Looking at that again, it does appear to be two peices, with a lower bulkhead. I'd like that lower peice to be metal. pretty cool!

That would look (and work) great on an Unlimited.

Actually the bottom piece is totally seperate from the top so anyone with some metal skills could easily make the bottom out of metal.

I think the Scrambler half cab could be made to fit on a TJ pretty easy. The YJ and CJ top are almlsta perfect fit for a TJ... The half scrambler tops go around pretty cheap, in the $200-300 range used, or even less.
