Can you comment on the available space vs the stock glove box? From their picture it looks really shallow, almost like that flash light barely fits.

I was stationed at Ft Knox. Coincidence? I think I'm going to order the tuffy

One note about glove boxes. My buddy pulled his dash apart for the cj dash conversion.


There is a ****load of space, that glove box could be quite a bit bigger IMHO

They are very small, my 92 has a tuffy and you can barely fit anything in it, but it's better than my 91 that doesnt have a glove box.

I got the Jeep back today from the body shop. Insurance covered replacement of the entire steering column.

So, in the past 3 weeks, I've taken the Jeep to get inspected, Stereo was stolen and steering column damaged while there. Paid $1300 for a new exhaust system and all new rear brakes.

Went camping

Got a new stereo installed (thanks State Farm)

and got a new steering column.

My only complaint, is that the steering seems a bit "stiffer" than it was previously...I was used to it being a bit loose, but now it's kinda jerky, and responds REALLY well, almost too well. Is it supposed to be like this? Is it now "fixed" compared to what I was dealing with earlier?

thanks...been a long week, lets hope that nothing else happens. in the past month, I've had to go a week total without the Jeep. My rental while at the body shop was a Mazda2...tiny little roller skate!

So I had a fellow jf'er photoshop this for me.


forumrunner_20120712_195306.jpg

My idea is to paint the C-RES spice and sew on material and velcro so that mimics how a soft top seals around door and incorporate it with my safari top.

What do u guys think!? I think its pretty B.A.. its like the bastard child of a c-res and the rampage frameless top.

I like it... If you can get the door seal thingy right you should be set

It looks cool but as the former owner of a CRES I wouldn't suggest them to anyone. If you're looking for a better option try something from Raingler

They're cheaply made and stretch out easily. They seem quite stout at first but they soon develop some areas where they will pop out of the channel that holds them in. Mine lasted two summers and then I gave it away and got some Raingler nets which also double as a cargo rack. I laid on mine on the 4th and watched the fireworks show. Try that with a smittybilt product. And btw, I'm around 250lbs

I've had the cres about 8mo now and have been completely happy w it. The raingler are cool but if I have the top on then I have no need for the net. It fits well and looks good imo.

For around the door I was thinking of the front half of the bestop soft top frame hooked up like normal. Maybe securing it to the roll bar in a few spots

This inspires me to get creative with para cord... I think I can make a safari/bikini style top, weaving para cord, and using carabiners to secure it to the roll bars....

It's been nearly a year since I touched the YJ (been sitting in the driveway since last summer). :/

However, I finally got some motivation back and replaced the input shaft on the NP231 from 21 spline to 23 spline. I put the planetary gears and input shaft back in and put the snap rings back on, but I need to put the covers back on and bolt it back together. I would have done it now, but I don't think I have any RTV around. :/

I've made a DIY sunshade for the JKU.

I used some nylon webbing for edges
looked like this

Some solar screen (the kind we use for the frames that go over windows in FL-its pretty thick mesh)



And a brass grommet kit. You could secure it with paracord if you like, I used 10'' bungies
