SHE WOULDN'T START....BEEN THAT WAY FOR DAYS. WOULD START WHEN SHE WANTED, SO:

1) Installed new battery ($69)
2) Installed new alternator ($65).......still wouldn't start!

3) Installed salvaged starter ($37).....still wouldn't start! Click....Click....Click.
4) With some helpful tips at the very end of the day.....installed a salvaged Starter Relay ($17)......she fired right off!!
But then, I broke the little plastic thingy that closes and opens my choke plate on my carb. Spent 3 more hrs trying to figure out a way to fix the stripped screw that holds the plastic thingy in place......fixed it....what a day!!!

Just got done, 14 hrs later, cracked my first beer (well deserved). It sucked that probably my battery was fine, alternator was getting ready to go, didn't need a starter and the one thing that would have made it work was that stink'n little metal block of a relay switch!!! Upsetting. A days worth of bad checks, but at least I can drive the YJ now!

Come to think of it, I haven't done that in a while. It is pretty amazing how much space you have in there once you get rid of all the junk...

Mine was so bad, I actually removed it to clean it, but what I actually like is not having the console in there (which isnt a reality) but I am going to look for a lower profile console or something, it seems like it gave me so much more room, of course without it I have no place for all my "crap"

Good luck! Its nice to try and help people but MOST of them will turn on you in a heartbeat if any damage is done to their vehicle AND won't help you at all if something breaks on your Jeep. I'd offer them the use of my cellphone to call a tow truck and nothing else.
