This happen to me also yesterday. I ripped the headliner of and dropped the moonroof along with taking the moonroof motor out to force it closed by hand. When I used it that day it slowly died out and the little circuit bored near the motor started clicking when I hit the switch. I wonder if it's possibly the motor that died out or the board soldering.

How much was it for you? And was the circuit board clicking when you hit the switch?

Got some new spherical bushings from jks for my discos to replace the worn ones.

Put some amsoil atf in my newly installed 231.
Installed a prothane poly trans mount when I did the tcase swap.

Anyone need a single prothane trans mount for a 96+ V8?

Well it has been forever since I have posted due to a broken right wrist. Finally got the clear, and replaced the 318s tensioner. Tomorrow I will be tearing down the old 249, there's a guy in Wyoming that needs the front half, if anyone else needs any of it PM me. Next I will be rebuilding the 231 from a 95 YJ and install it on my 4.0. The 231 was a Christmas present from my little brother but I didn't have enough room to bring it home then. They finally brought it to me for my birthday in March, but I broke my wrist the day before installing bamboo floors in my home. It has been a difficult time missing my jeep therapy.

I need to have it moving this weekend so that I can get it inspected, licensed and out to Uwharrie before I miss any more season or before our first child arrives in July.
