I run one all summer when the top is off. That will stop most of it.

Well other than the 3" of water that was standing in the floorboards it dried out pretty well. Pulled the plugs so it took care of the water.

I have a bikini on order, it says itll be here tomorrow.

use a screw driver, put the metal tip on the bolt that holds the wheel in place, put your ear to the end of the screw driver. Move the screw driver around to the different pulley wheel bolts and listen, you will hear the difference.

I replaced a few myself, but then when I mentioned it at the dealer they replaced them under warranty.

I think my problem was twofold. I had a high temp problem, poor engine cooling for a long time (Plugged up rad exterior, replaced under warranty) in addition it seemed to always happen when I washed the engine bay (even though I didnt' spray right at them, a bit of water was enough)

they are about $30 CAN and takes 5 minutes to replace. I keep a few in my garage now, but since cooling was fixed I haven't had to do it again.

hehe... I've been very lucky. I've had the top off and no doors since Memorial day weekend. So far no rain except a short storm yesterday evening. I carry a 12'x14' tarp folded up in the back just incase.

Rebuilt Teraflex front lower control arm joints, at the axle. Easy work; 15 min per arm. Notched transmission skid and crossmember to allow more front driveshaft droop. Two nice ribbon stripes in the driveshaft from flexing this thing. Checked front brakes for an annoying chirp, and lubed RCVs.

This weekend I spent close to 20 hours upgrading the stock stereo.

Polk dxi6500 components in the front
Polk dxi650 two ways in the roll bar
JL XD400/4 amp
RE-q5 bass processor

Not as easy as I originally thought, but I sure did learn a lot about Chrysler electrical systems :kill me now:
