You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Also how do you get the c_clip out of the 44 to pull the shaft and get the backing plate off?

You have to slide the pinion shaft out. The C clips will just pop off easily after that. I just pushed mine in and collected them from the bottom. There are great details in this thread. http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums...d.php?t=482547

I've been doing all that too. I've got charcoal suede to wrap my door inserts and headliner in.

Put in my headlight housings yesterday. Word to the wise...stay away from the TYC housings. Those plastic attachment clips..? All of 'em broke...all 6 of 'em. Good thing the ones that were on the original were still one piece after I yanked the housings off. I cut off those ones off and installed them in the new ones. What a difference in clarity. I've still got to give it angry eyes but it's too cold to paint them right now.
The original ones were made in the US whereas the TYC's were made in Taiwan.....figures. At least these ones will hold me over til spring when I can get some good ones.
