Who cares what it looks like, as long as it works. Looks ok to me except that you might need some support above the windshield hinges.

First, we redid the spark plugs (they were ok but the gaps sucked - since we had new ones we'd already gapped we just replaced them. Wow that rail is a royal PITA. But it doesn't idle rough anymore yay.)

Then we redrilled the trackbar to put the wheels back under the jeep (which pushed the steering wheel almost 90 degrees out. Doh!)

Finally, we did this:

(The girl on the passenger side is wearing steampunk welding goggles. They prolly helped a lot, actually - I hit 55 and was having real trouble seeing the road Meanwhile she is laughing and roller-coastering between the oh-**** bar and putting her hands up in the air..)

Then on the way to the crab shack this happened Stupid warrior piece of ...grrrrr. Going around a turn (fairly gently) and PING! ting ting ting.. as the bolt sheared and the washer went bouncing down the highway.

Created a good way to keep "half-door" tops in back and not rattling.

Me too! Looks like a rock dented the 3" tall area between the top of my windshield and the hard top. Just a touch lower and I'd be shopping for a new windshield so I should be happy........I guess. It's a pretty good dent down to bare metal, so I can't believe I didn't notice it when it happened.

Tried to adjust the T/c Shifter linkage to no avail.. My tj hates me, also found a leak by the harmonic balancer.

When I'm in the TJ all my problems go away, dirt, rocks and hills make my day. :)
