Drove home from the California coast yesterday. For about 40 minutes was in fairly heavy snow. Do all you folks in 4-letter country (snow) have trouble with the right side wiper getting blocked?

Looks nice. I have the same Rio Grande Jeep, but I've been wondering does it originally come with a tan top from the dealer?

Scored a Bestop Sail Cloth Top, frame and windows for $90 on CL. One small professionally repaired tear at the front, and a 2" drivers side window tear at the bottom (unrepaired). All I need are the corner, side and back rails and I'll be good to go, so if y'all have any you want to sell to me, dont be shy!

Jo-ann fabrics sells a iron on patch that works great. Just make sure you iron it on the inside.

Replaced driver side wheel bearings (inner / outer / spindle). Once I get home from work, pulling the passenger, and expecting I'll have to do the same. So much for PO stating axle was just redone

I tore out the alarm system. It all looked factory when I was tinkering down there a couple weeks ago. The only thing I'm unsure about is one of the wires ran from the box to a relay which is connected into a green wire and a blue wire by the steering column. I was curious as to what those wires would be for

Turns out the relay was for the ignition. I nearly s*** myself when I unplugged it to check for voltage and it wouldn't start. Then I couldn't figure out how it was wired. Works though now. Haha

Got one of the new side steps on. HighRock slider step from Bestop

Here it is pulled down



and here it is up



Instructions say 1-2 hours to install. Don't have a clue who does the time estimating for some of these projects, but they should hold a seminar and actually prove they can do these things in that time frame. Driver's side took me over 3 hours after gathering up the tools, but the passenger side should go quicker
