I uses a sheet of aluminum I had laying around and cut it with one inch larger border and simply glued it on top. After several days of drying I bonded over top several coats to smooth it out. Turned out great. I never finished the inside part but same as before and need to bondo to blend in but left it alone and no leaks. Cost of only bondo for me. You could use a sheet of thin gauge metal too but I had the aluminum laying around. personally I don't understand a sun roof or even A/C in a jeep. I mean, do people understand the top comes off?

Just purchased a ram assist setup from a guy switching to full hydro. I got the whole complete kit for $150. Real good price. Right now I'm in the process of converting to hydraulic clutch linkage.

installed a hydraulic clutch linkage kit from novak jeeps. pretty easy install. the hardest part is drilling a hole through the pedal. i wanted to do this with out removing the steering column and pedal assembly. so i purchased a right angle drill and had just enough room.

nice. i took the clip off and just took the clucth pedal out i can imagine what a pain it would be to drill in the jeep. i looked at the novak kit but i ended up going with chevy 1 ton slave and master heavy duty. got them alot cheaper i wasnt sure about it working out i have a pretty crazy clutch and pressure plate. 3600lbs per square inch. i learned the hard way thats the last thing i want to give up. yeah i exploded one in a truck with the same motor made a show i dont ever want to see again. tell me you dont love the clutch so much more now..lol

Lol sucks when you have to learn the hard way. Yea I like the hydro clutch now. Just takes getting used too. At first I wasn't sure but after getting back in my car it's the same as my 240sx is. Just a little harder to push. Drilling the pedal took half a day. My arms kept cramping up so I had to take breaks. Well worth not taking out everything

Lol no I didnt. I looked at it and it looked like the whole assembly had to come out. What I did is remove e brake assembly to give me enough room. Man I wish I knew that before. Would have made it a lot easier

yes it does and i did say it should have...lol the cage in mine made it tough enough to get the pedal out in and then a bolt through it and i didnt have the dash in either that helped a bunch. oh did i mention trying to measure the rod so i could cut it and weld it back together. the only one i had was for a chevy it was like 9" too long

I did the same. I made my own rod for down at the clutch fork and made a custom rod for my buddy's brake master cylinder. I learned to weld four years ago and I couldn't imagine doing anything to my jeep without being able to weld. Got gas hooked up two years ago. I have a cheap crappy welder and I tried out a millermatic a month ago and am in love. Saving up for a better welder now but budget got tight as I bought ram assist.

Got the ARB locker installed replacing the lincoln locker and their free cover that came with it. Cover is really nice, thick and has a magnetic dip stick and drain plug too.

At first I had a problem with the knuckle wearing out around upper ball joint. I had a set of flat tops laying around so I had them drilled and tapped and switched knuckles so no problems anymore. I can drive 65 mph all day and it goes straight. Took me awhile to get the alignment and wheels balanced but I ended up doing it myself and did better than the local shop (crap).

Finished installing a constant duty viair on board air kit to power front ARB and to run air tools. Took me a while to install this as the directions kind of suck and they don't give you everything you need in the kit. Great quality parts but horrible everything else. I plumbed the output behind pass seat at an angle tucked away that everything is out of the way for anyone getting in the back seat. The compressor is actually very quite and the locker doesn't take much pressure or volume to operate. I can probably fill the locker close to 50 times on one tank of air. I mounted the tank on a plate and clamp it to the roll bar so no holes are drilled in fender and I can simply remove it whenever I want to if needed. This allowed me to tuck it inside the roll bar more taking up unused space.
