the search button is there for a reason, as well as subscribed threads.
I don't think it is much in the way being in the tech section, but i wouldnt really care too much if it got moved.

I think it's neat to see what everyone does to their yj on a daily basis, but my

I've gotten many good ideas from this thread by reading what other guys have done. If it went to general discussion, I would never see it since I rarely go there. Not the reason why I'm on this forum.

Considering that other model's tech forums have the same type of thread, I don't see a problem....

What is performed on other's jeeps is tech worthy as they often include the technical details and [if they don't] they will no doubt be provided if asked for by any of us.

I replaced my ignition switch which ended up taking four times longer than it should have because i didn't read the Haynes manual before starting. I took of the steering wheel and all that junk before i realized that the part i had to put in would not be able to fit in the steering column. I then realized that the part was under the dash, which would have been a 30 minute job rather than a 2 hour job

Fixed the hardtop/windshield problem with some stuff I bought off ebay. It was 7 clips that slip over the top of the windshield frame, and 7 machine screws. Snugged down better than the day I got it!

I also pulled the trigger on a Grant GT steering wheel. Once I figured out that you DO need a steering wheel puller, it came off in two minutes. Also, make sure to read the installation directions very well, as I had some problems with getting the horn to work.

Total time: 3 hours (with multiple trips to AutoZone)

Total beers afterwards: working on #4.

I got a Jeep, it's lifted and it's got crap bolted to it.

Yesterday, moved my huge CB from where the passengers knee was supposed to be to where the ashtray should be. Then I attached the ashtray to the bottom of the CB.
