shouldn't be a problem. Whe the title is switched, all they ask me is if it's the actual miles on the odometer. I tell them no. They mark the appropriate box.

Next on the agenda:

So, while I'm waiting for the new speedometer/odometer to come in I decided to go ahead and dive into the interior. I just ordered a carpet kit and OEM floor mats from teamgrandwagoneer.com, then kick panels, door lock cylinders, and door lock springs from BJ's.

I started removing door scuff guards and carpet. The aluminum scuff guards cleaned up nice, so I'm actually keeping those, just using new stainless screws when I re install.

Once all the carpet and seats are out I want to coat the floor with something and then start taking each door apart to replace springs, lock cylinders(front only of course), clean & lube everything, then reassemble.

When I did all this to my YJ the hardest part was having to park it for a while! I've only had this thing a few weeks & I still WANT TO DRIVE IT!

The carpet kit was like $315 and the OEM floor mats were $75.

They also have the replacement rear panels with and without carpet on them, but thankfully mine are in good enough shape to keep.

Drivers Vent window latch repair:

My drivers side vent window latch works about 50% of the time... if I'm patient. The passengers side works just fine(probably because it was used way less over time).

Initially my thoughts were to just replace both latches. So... the drivers side latch is no longer available at the dealer and/or teamgrandwagoneer.com and the passengers side latch is ONLY available at teamgrandwagoneer.com for OVER $70!!!

Let's see if it's "fixable"... It feels like there is a "sweet spot" for it to work. I usually have to wiggle the latch back & forth while pressing the release button and then EVENTUALLY it opens. I noticed what looks like a "roll pin" holding the latch on so I punched it out with a pick, pulled the latch to see what's up... Turns out the spring was just wore. I just stretched it out a bit with some pliers, cleaned, and re installed. I took the extra time to clean the latch with an sos pad and it shined up like new! Works perfectly now

Not sure, but I know they are very similar to the ones on my YJ. I would bet they are interchangeable. They've all got to be pretty close.

Is yours broke or does it just act up like mine was? If so, save some money and pop it off and stretch out that old spring
