That's what I did the other night and it turned into me not figuring it out... but I did get the rear brakes adjusted.

Went to a Jeep event with local club for toys 4 tots. It was at 4WP store, so of course I couldn't leave without buying something. Got me a snatch block for my gear bag, and also a replacement center cap for one of my PCxx69s.

I have them on my 30 and 35. They work perfectly, no leaks. I took seriously the directions, which say that surface prep is key, so I had the mating surfaces on the diffs and covers almost shiny clean before I installed them. I don't know if that was really necessary.

Cleaned my soft top windows with Plastx cleaner. It got rid of a lot of hazing and some of the smaller scratches. Before: image-1683117903.jpg After: image-3017798234.jpg

Took it out for one of its last trips. All the Windows come off and it was a beautiful day!

Changed out my busted Duralast wipers for the nice new Trico's. Really wanted to get more than that done today. Damn early sunset.

Washed/waxed it for winter and checked on the LED backup bulbs in the stock TJ taillights I installed over the summer. All it took was two 1157 socket extensions from ebay to reposition the bulbs to the front center, two 5 watt cree projector leds, and some cable anchors to hold them in place. So far they have been working great with no issues and are plenty bright to illuminate probably guessing 15-20ft or more behind the TJ. The stock TJ brake/tail light bulbs are just standard as they work fine for me, just wanted to make the stock backup lights more useful for parking and being in the woods at night without having to mount/wire external lights.

You can see the projector bulb in the center of backup light reflector:

Daytime pic, just the backup lights:

My phone camera sucks for night time pics as this is the best I could get with just the backup lights on:

Changed the engine oil and also the F/R diff oil.

I'm fairly certain the diffs have never been opened until now. Everything looked clean and the old oil was still honey colored with the rear being slightly darker. The good news is that my rear locker's slowness to engage seems to have been fixed with the fresh oil. I used Royal Purple 75w-140.

Finished replacing the master cylinder, proportioning valve and front left hard brake line. Bled the whole system with new fluid.
On my last wheeling trip a rock kicked up and hit the bracket where the hard and soft line connect. Cracked the hardline and broke off the end of the soft line.
Time for a beer or 4.
