I have 35% in the front doors (which in VA the fronts can't be any lower the 50%) The rest is stock right now. The rear doors, and the rear quarter panel windows are stock at 20% which is dark but you can still see into the Jeep. I do not want that... You can have as dark as you want on the rears.

Edit: Pictures look good on the transmission cooler. Glad you got that installed. I may hold off on mine now since the Factory cooler should be fine for now. =/

Sucks about the wing nut man. But you put one some serious ring terminals! As per your pictures you do not have nearly as many threads as I did on your bolt for the terminal. That must have been why your wing nut hit.
I'm not sure my pictures will even apply to yours actually. I mean they might, but my cooler definitely runs through the radiator and not the condenser.

I really dont even need the wing nut, I just used them cus they came with the terminals... even if it were up a couple threads, the fact that it was that close to the hood metal would make me very upset/nervous. I'm planning on gluing a small piece of plastic behind the hood insulation where the terminal punctured through just in case something happens again so it'll just hit plastic. I think the problem was my undersized battery broke loose from the factory hold down clip so thats where my strap will help me out till I get a new battery this summer

It would make sense that it would be in a core of the radiator. Where do you think I should look under int the FSM?

Even a bolt like you did will work just as well. A socket will get it off no problem! A little extra insulation won't hurt at all. Your battery isnt a group 65?

Saw your post in the 'What did you do today' thread on the trans cooler and decided to head to the build thread. All the pics are awesome! It looks like it wasn't too hard of a job, how long did it take? Also what cooler did you end up going with?

Heyyy man thanks for checkin it out. I try and remember to take a ton of pics when I do something, having a decent camera on my phone makes that nice and easy plus they'll upload straight to Jeepforum. It really was not hard at all the way the soft line was located it was begging me to do this mod. I'd say all and all it took me about an hour... maybe two actually... but it should only take an hour for somebody with the right tools and some common sense. Even less if you follow my pictures haha. A chunk of my time was spent planning it out and finding good ways to route or mount stuff. Actually most of my time was honestly trying to get the soft line off the factory hard lines because mine was being a pain. Channel locks twisting it helped with that. Also the second hardest part was getting the new hoses on the factory hard lines. I dipped the tip of each hose in the puddle of ATF in my drip pan preemptively which definitely helped it out a bit.

I ended up going with an autozone brand "Compressor works" part 911676. It ran me about $40 plus a couple bucks for the extra hose. When I picked up the cooler it turned out to be a really nice solid Torqflo Plate and fin style, I was not dissapointed at all

On the topic of not wanting to clearance my fenders... I've found a solution. Rob if you have extra space in your u-haul at the end of this year... yeah ummmm lets just say I'd have no reluctance to take a saw-zall to $20 fenders

Well... it is 580 miles of driving each way but if you come up the least I could do is help you install them haha. Honestly I dont think its worth it but hey I wont stop ya! Looking at the fenders again they might be a bit rusty so I'm getting kind of nervous but you know what... hell I offered him $15 each and at that price I think they're worth their weight in scrap and I could just chop off the bottoms and then later down the road hmm what bushwhackers anybody? Considering they're in the process of producing them right now!

Hey for that low of a price. You really can't go wrong. You can always sand and repaint for a project. Cause they are spares. Haha. Is is rusted were you were going to trim it off?

What is that 9 hours one way... could do that in one day round trip. I want leather so bad. Knowing my luck it is probably that tan color. I think the gray was darker. But I guess we will know if you go pick those up. Or whatever haha.

Yeah you know they were going to be hacked up anyways and I'd be doing some intense clearance work on em so I wouldn't bother with any rust I'd just cut it right off, it'll still look awesome and I'll keep the clean factory fenders in storage if I ever need to go back to the old ones. Jeez my solution to not doing irreversible mods is to buy more bolt-on parts to swap out with the old factory one and holding onto it until I need to sell the WJ
