One of my bolts broke off leaving the threaded part in the hole and its broke off flush on the inside but i look underneath and i can see the bottom part of the threaded part of the bolt sticking through. I can almost put vice grips on the end and attempt to turn it. it sticks down like an inch or more.

So maybe I will just avoid any electrical work...

I'll give this a look next time I am working on it!

A pro I was gonna go through for a new alarm/remote start kit said they wouldn't even touch it and very highly recommended taking to a dealership and have them pull out/disable the factory alarm system because it all is just too touchy. Most of the time, the factory alarm system starts going haywire with aftermarket kitd. It's a little different for the different model years, mine's a 95, so take that as you wish.

This is the first time in a long time I've heard Best Buy do good work. Maybe you got lucky and had someone who cared and knew a lot about their job.

I'm sure glad they did! And it is a cheap remote start.

x2. It's been a good 9 or so years since I heard of Best Buy doing anything decent, let alone good. Glad it worked for ya! I'll have to look into that again, see if I can find someone that would guarantee the work(doubtful but worth a shot)

I just put the Jeep through inspection, and it passed with flying colors (all it needed was a horn!). All of the fluids, except the transfer case, have been swapped. All in all, between the bedliner, fluids, inspection, tires, and full brake swap, I was able to get this thing on the road for about $1,000. All it needs now is a steering stabilizer. Any recommendations?

Did you get the seats welded in?

If you havent got to that yet, try drilling through the center of the bolt from inside. start with a small bit and step up a size and drill again. then when you get almost out to the threads get under it with a pair of vice grips and turn it out from the bottom. the material that is left will be weak so it just deforms and turns loose. i used a scribe to get the remaining metal out. I spent all day on two bolts.... but i didnt have welder and nothing better to do.

They have been completely welded down. I didn't personally do it, though.

I have a minor leak in the upper radiator hose and have also found some coolant sitting on the floor. 1) fortunately it isn't carpet, but bedliner , and 2) I had a bottle of coolant flopping around in the trunk, so it may have actually came from that? Will report back if I figure out what is wrong.

FWIW, the weld job on the driver's seat:





It gets the job done (but my ****ty camera on my phone doesn't, apparently).
