You might want to go put on your flame suit.

Yes, they do...every....single...time

Brake calipers, should have taken an hour....took 2
Brake rotors, should have taken an extra 5 minutes while doing the calipers...were rusted on...took an hour.

The softtop, should take 3 minutes to put up...windows often take me 15

breaker bar prolly wont work....impact gun works awsome caseu of the leverage u get you can push straight down on the gun, cause of the local of the bolts it just works better, i tried a breaker bar it kept twisting in the torx and eventuall stripped it, i cut that one out. The impact gun took the rest out in about 30 seconds

I understand your pain. It took four hours to replace shock absorbers because of the 16 years of rust and whatever. After that experience I just startd multiplying by 4 the time I figured I needed to do whatever work. Now that it is my daily driver I really have to be careful. Fuel filter took over 3 hours due to rusted bracket and a skid plate that came off in about 137 pieces. Body mounts and bushing replace is on going, averaging about 20 minutes per and I won't include the time for the one bolt that is currently broken and I hope to drill out this weekend.

I guess it is the good/bad. I have an unaltered original YJ. I could be fighting with a mess created by someone else.

if you use pb blaster for a couple of days before hand (most times, even a few minutes can work), and an impact gun, you wont have a problem with 99% of the bolts.. the spring main eye bolts and the body mount bolts are sometimes the toughest..

just put antiseize on any bolt you remove and you will be good to go..
