any of the following - goof off or goo gone, alcohol, adhesive/max remover Or you can buy a rubber wheel from a paint shop (looks like a big eraser) that chucks into your drill that will remove all of the old tape/adhesive.

Sounds like a piece of cake compared to the adhesive left behind by those friggen red stripe mouldings. It took me over 6hrs with adhesive remover, scrapers, a hair dryer, and anything else I could think of.

line up the lip on the top of the end cap with the back edge on the mount. they slide on. just give it a few taps and it should slide on.

Yesterday i started fixing the cracked hatch, I love working with fiberglass so i got the first layer on.

Today i dropped it off at a transmission shop and will hopefully not cost to much to stop the gears slipping.

New wipers all around.

Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.

Just drove the rig today to work and back. Haven't done anything major since this past weekend becasue the girlfriend will probably murder me. I spent the previous week and half doing the following:

- Driver side U-joint (took 5 hours, don't ask - still have to do the pass side)
- Installed a 750 watt power inverter
- Rewired my CB antenna
- Changed both headlights
- Took out the backseat to make space for spare parts, tool bag, camping gear
- Put on one new BFG AT since I blew one the last time wheeling
- Straightened out my bent up belly pan
- Changed the oil
- Flushed the rad and all hoses
- Installed new LCA's for the third time, but this time they're aftermarket and won't bend (I hope)
- Went over every nut and bolt to make sure all was tight
- Did brakes front and rear
- Removed rear hitch locking pin with angle grinder

There's probably more but that's all I can think of off the top of my head

I also removed the door trim. Just used soap and water with a washcloth. Took a while but it all came off and looks great.
