Installed my sound bar. Wow that was a pain! Then I removed the amp and big speakers from the rear so I have cargo area.

After that I started to install my cobra 19 cb radio. Gonna run the whip wire tomorrow!

[QUOTE=wwch99tj;14287089]Decided today was the day to switch tops...
I scrubbed the soft top and gave the Jeep a bath then I removed the top and sat it aside to dry


I gave the Jeep a good coat of wax before winter


All cleaned up and ready for the hardtop I took just one last toppless ride for te season


My wife and I sat the top in place and i bolted her down and installed the old set of upper windows that i dyed black a few months ago

wwch99tj, man you got a sweet looking JEEP!

Finished up my Top Hoist

I bought a hand winch and rope from HF and various pulleys ,eye hooks, cable clamps and quick chain links from Lowes


Installed the winch on the wall


Put 2 eye hooks with a piece of galvanized pipe between them as a "pulley'' to get me around the corner of the wall to ceiling


Then put the 6 eye hooks and pulleys on the ceiling(making sure to hit a floor joist) also put the 4 eye hooks on the platform that used to be the hardtop dolly. i also ran the rope through every pulley.




I used a small D rind to transition from the rope to the winch hook.


Last i put my summer windows and soft top on the platform and raised it to the ceiling, I put 2 ratchet straps on to keep it up in case something fails.

Installed a new passenger side mirror and installed the quick disconnect bolt that was missing from my discos to begin with. Then I got to practice welding some more. Helped make my dad a Halloween theme brush guard haha. Looks pretty awesome.

My parents gave me a 1.25" JKS body lift for my birthday, but I have no time to install it

Replaced fuel rail and throttle body (walking through junk yard looking for harness I found both already pulled and figured I needed to try them anyway) $40 later and jeep idle's better, didn't get chance to check high end sputter though.

On plus side I now know I can swap fuel rail under 20 mins (damn leaky o-rings)

Replaced inner axle seals and installed alloy USA outer axle seals to keep the dirt out.

Not too bad a job, took 3 hrs total and I have never done it. Repair shop quoted 4 hrs.

Rebuilt my rear drive shaft. The clunk in the rear end when getting into gear is gone... I hadn't quite realized how much I was babying my worn driveshaft. It shifts so smooth now. Wife just asked me to run to the store. Sounds like an excuse for another test drive.
