I'm not running it, but my thought is that while it looks cool, it raises 90+ lbs higher than running it verticle. Not sure why someone would want to go more top heavy.

I'd hate to change a tire on the side of the highway with one of those.

Ok noted it will suck to take on and off but it looks so good I might be willing to deal with that. Just want to see more pics could only find 3 on Googe image search.

About raising the center of gravity would it be any worse than having my hardtop on?

It isn't only about getting it on and off. It is about taking 100lbs and raising it up 2 feet in the air and what it does to the center of gravity of the Jeep. Generally not a good idea. Functionality over form.
