Let me know where there is a nice one for $450 and I will go buy it.. That's a good deal if it is a factory unit in good shape.

I hope you bought it! I was going to say, if you needed a hardtop and were are trying to find one for a TJ for less than $450 you would be very hardpressed. Not to mention upset when someone else bought the one you passed up! $450 is a great deal as long as it is in pretty good shape. Bestop or factory, tinted windows or clear.... I already have a hard top, and I would have bought that just to re-sell, haha!

You should take the soft top off, just fold it down and there should be 4 spots where it connects to the roll cage. Just unbolt it and take it off.
Having the soft top on with the hard top will just get in the way when you open the back.

Remember where you put the parts for the soft top. That was my issue this summer!

A big THANK YOU to AmbuGrl and Mudvain for upgrading me.

Hey guys, Im trying to get my front end aligned, but from what my dad is telling me, the tires are out like 7 degrees and the auto shop wouldnt do anything for it, went to a guy that bends axles to fix it and said he cant fix that much. So Im under the assumption I have to cut my knuckles off and re-weld them on at a different angle to make everything straight? Does anybody know a place local that does this kind of axle work? Its a ford d44 if that matters at all.

Did any alignment shop actually measure it? Not to be one dad questioning another, but my eye's are not calibrated that closely. You also didn't mention if you are seeing any odd handling or tire wear.

Im not quite sure what my dad did, Im 2 hours away so I cant really watch him, but he didnt just look at it and figure the degrees. The tires seem to be tilted out at the top quite a bit, and while driving down the road it just seems to be all over the place. Its hard for me to explain it, you just have to drive it to eperience it, haha.

so you're dealing with 7 degrees of positive camber? that sounds kind of weird because the load on the axle will usually bend the tubes the other way, creating a negative camber angle. the ground pushes up on the tires while the weight of the jeep on the springs pushes down on the tube to make the axle bow like a smile when looking at the jeep from front or back. just like walking on a board supported at the ends. in order to bend the other way, the forces would have to reverse and short of landing the tubes on a rock or stump oir something like that a couple times I can't see how you would bend the axle that way to get the kind of angles you're looking at. have you checked the ball joints and the hub bearings?

I have to talk to my friend and see what he wants to do when the time gets closer, and we will go from there.
Any more info on this and will you be at the next HV meeting?
