I finished installing an am/FM bluetooth receiver. I left the original in place because it is a radio and cb combo.

I replaced the brake light switch on my 46 CJ2A. Seems like I just replaced it. I go through a lot of these on my Willys; I even usually carry a spare just for this reason. Anyone know where I can get a good quality switch that'll last a while?

I also took the bikini top off, and put the full soft-top back on.

RFJP.com or Kaiserwillys.com? Not sure about the brands they use, but maybe they can help.

Thanks. I just bought another "spare" from NAPA. Paid $12-something for their best one. So if (I should say "When") the one I just put in it (I think from O'Reillys) fails, we'll see how the NAPA one does. And then maybe I'll buy another spare from one of those two places. I've got stuff from Kaiserwillys before and had good luck.

Agreed, everything I've gotten from Mike at Kaiser Willys and Ron at RFJP has been good quality stuff.

New front bumper. With front basket rack

I know this is taking the original out of my CJ7 but I need it to be more functional for me..

It worked really well. I didnít use the whole YJ batt tray because I didnít want to put more holes in the CJ firewall. I would have given myself just a bit more clearance to get the the CJ batt hold down bolt, but thatís an easy mod for another day.

Nice fab work!! Curious, what do you plan on hauling in it? I use a cheap hitch basket on the rear at times when needed. Make sure to post up some pics when you have it installed.

His rack looks nice. My guess is that it is a cooler rack for fishing or for camping. Some guys that surf fish use something similar. I am not sure they do that type of fishing on the beaches of Texas thought.

Replaced the rubber on my Trico wiper blades with some fresh ones. Rather than buy the entire wiper assembly ($20 ea.) because that's how they sell them, I opted to get a 22" blade set and make 4 sets of replacement blades by using my Dremel. Since two come in a pack, I made out good. They are much better than what came on the Trico's originally. Now I have back-ups!

Bolted up the skid pan to finish up work on the twin sticks only to discover that the rear axle shifter always moves to neutral and doesn't stay in high or low.
This is just sitting still without the engine running or anything.
How odd, something to be said for rusty gummed up shift rails that stay in gear....

Time to dive back under there and make sure everything is still in place.

Is this with a new fancy boot installed? They can sometimes pull the shifter back into neutral. Or you aren't getting enough movement to get fully past the shift rod detent.
