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

Now it will need to be because the next 14 pgs will be people arguing that it sould, or should not, Thanks.

And who uses totally anymore, are we back in the 80's again?

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.

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.

Prothane motor mounts (stock mounts were 100% shot) removed all carpet... got a decent rust patch on the drivers side foot area... planning on sanding that off and painting it over tomorrow.. then adding some drain holes and plugs for them.
