Everything I have read says the HO72 has all the brawn of a 14 bolt in a petite package. Youcan also swap the HO carrier for a 14 bolt locker. Pure win!!

Alot of people complain about the drum brakes being 'only' 12"..... That is stillALOT of brakes for a jeep

Im gonna buy the brackets from Dan at ruffstuff to run disk brakes in the rear.

And so far i think the only thing you can really change over from a 14B is the spiders and shafts. You cant take an ARB or anything that throw it in. But a lot of the HO72s come with a detroit.

Ive read that one a couple times. It says the same thing, you can use a 14B detroit but thats it

got a hair up my butt today and decided to play around on the Jeep for a bit. nothing really needed to be done so i decided to make a removable windshield. When the windshield is removed everything is so much easier to see on the trail.


First thing i Did was remove the lower windshield bolt to be able to fold it down. I actually pulled all of the torx bolts and replaced them with grade 8's.




Then I began to drive out the hinge pin. All you need to do is take a punch and hammer it from the inside out.





you can see the pin in knurled on one end to keep it in place. the pin is 7/16" x approx 3 3/4"-4".




then unplug the wiper motor and remove the windshield




heres a dark picture of it removed. I'll get one with daylight tomorrow






The only thing left to do is buy a pin that will make it quick release. I cant wait to eventually wheel without it.


It'll look a lot better once i rebuild my cage. The A pillar will follow the windshield angle better and therefor look better with the windshield removed as well.

Got to build a chanel into the cage for the bikini top to slide into. Pasty white guys need LOTS of sunscreen, with all the gear and tools you carry I don't see room for a 5 gallon bucket of sun block, can't be getting sunburn on the trail!

I like the removable windshield. I will definitely just knock the pins out when I need to take mine off. Seems a lot easier.

Got the removable windshield finished up today. I ran to Tractor supply and got some hitch pins to use. The stock pin you knock out it 7/16". I tried to find a 7/16" hitch pin but they didnt have any, so i snagged two 1/2" pins. I then just drilled out my holes to 1/2" on the hinges.


New removable pins




And some daytime shots sans windshield






This project only cost me $10 total for the hitch pins.
