Question Rear window foggin issue.

Hey guys (girls). New YJ owner here.

Im well under way in my mods, and am going through the needed stuff first, before i spend on random goodies.

Bolted tool box on rear fenders, lights up front, HID's, lifted, etc.

One thing thats bugging me is that the hardtop on this yj doesnt have rear defroster lines on the glass, and no ducts for hot air. I switched to a yj from an infiniti g35 (my lady's driving it now), so not being able to see out the back is killin me.

So my questions. What have other hardtop owners done to fix this issue.

i found a light inside attached to the rear area of the hardtop, and a wiring harness where the hardtop meets the body. figures i could do something like a fan or blower powered by the wires that would normally feed the light...

idunno, any input?

Start off by finding any leaks and stopping moisture from entering the cab.

When my hard top is on, i never get the fogging, but i also park in the garage.....

My hard top has the rear defrost, but it hasnt worked for a long time, the tabs broke off the struts for the power and ground to the grid.....
