However, I have all the seals for the windows guides, tracking, small vents and everything they need but have been procrastinating because I know it will get involved. I just want to replace all of them at the same time since it will require I tear open the doors. The window guides at glass sides are bad; cracked and separating in some areas. Not looking forward to it but knowing me, once I get into it, I will go all out. I plan to add Dyna-mat on the inner door itself to sound proof it as well. Might as well since the inner door will be open and exposed!

16ft Jim. Bought down in North Carolina for $2500 from the factory to haul my future John Deere series 2 Tractor and the Jeep.
Looks like they went up a 100 bucks in price: http://newtrailer.us/trailers/utility-trailers/3-5-ton/

We were also suppose to haul the CJ to this years Jeep Fest in Butler, PA but that has been canceled this year due to the BS COVID-19 epidemic.|

Replaced the seals on the hard top side windows. What a PITA but they are DONE!
Replaced the H4 halogen bulbs to a higher wattage. Glad I did because one of the old bulbs was ballooning.
Replaced a few rubber lines and added fuel additive to clean fuel from within. (Archoil-AR6200)
Tomorrow I plan on retouching (Textured Paint) the console and removing the rear-view mirror to a more center position.
It was a fun FUN DAY amidst all the chaos lately!

Note that RockAuto calls it a "steering coupler." If you do a search on "boot" you won't find anything.

|Alabamacj71981||Started after a year of work! I Monstalinered my hard top, rattle canned the inside white, put on all new shocks, shackles, refurbed my leaf springs, Monstalinered the inside, rebuilt transmission and transfer case, put in roll bar cover, new seats (smittybilt), new decals, New Tuffy 10 inch console, New twin stick, and new optima yellow battery. Holy crap. Almost there. Just have to fix a weld. Then I’ll be rolling again.|

Noooooooo. It's made by Crown. Where can I but the good one?
And since I just now replaced the lower column bearing with a Crown one, should I replace that too?
And my wife wonders why I drink!

Replaced the boot on the lower intermediate steering shaft. It wasn't that hard. I used a space heater to warm up the rubber boot and the heat made the rubber stretch far more easily. Oh and turn the warmed boot inside out to get it over the steering pins.
One thing to watch out for is losing the washer at the bottom of the steering shaft coupling (bell). I put everything back together, put radiator back in and topped it off, then walked by where I packed the boot with grease and found the washer on the ground. Yup, had to pull it all apart and redo.

I am almost 6' 1". Depends on the time of day.
The roll bar padding cover was made by an upholstery buddy of mine years ago. It is very easy to make.
1. Buy some "real" roll bar padding from a reputable place (comes in different colors if you want). Plumbing insulation is not a good substitute - will not protect your head.
2. Bring your Jeep to an upholstery place to have covers measured and made. The cover is essentially just a piece of HD vinyl (doesn't have to be black) with the ends folded over and sewn. The sides (after being folded over and sewn) can attach to each other with a zipper (more work and cost), or Velcro. I think I put a few snaps on mine because I bought a bunch of snaps and a snap plier tool and was bored one day.
If you were really counting pennies, you could make a cover without sewing (which I did for the little grab handles on the roll bar up front). Get the vinyl, fold over the edges and superglue them in place (put a weight on top as it is drying to do it right and to make sure you're getting a flat edge). Then glue 1" wide strips of Velcro along the edges (make sure you test it to make sure you're putting the Velcro on the right sides of the vinyl). Then buy some snaps and a snap plier to put some snaps at each corner, and however many you want along the edge.
