3 Quick questions - nooby from Pittsburgh

1. Do I have to go to the Dealer to buy a refill for my rear wiper on my 07 Wrangler Unlimited X ? Can't find one at any of the auto stores in the area. Suggestions ???

2. There are a couple of deep scratches in my (hardtop) roof panels. Is there anything made to cover these or is a "home" remedy available ?

3. Really like the OEM fog lights in the front bumper (mine does'nt have them). Is there a kit available to install them or do I have to get a new bumper ? Not afraid to get my hands dirty ...

There you have it !!! My first 3 of many more to come... Thanks in advance - I'll try NOT to be a pest

As to your 1st question I haven't a clue, but seems like there should be another way other than going back to dealer. Question 2, I have not run into that issue but I'm sure there is a home fix or simply getting some fiberglass filler from a auto shop or wal-mart maybe. On question 3, it would probably be cheaper to buy a used bumper that already has the light holes rather than trying to cut them into a solid bumper. People are always selling their stock bumpers. I plan to replace my bumper sometime in the near future and will be selling my 2011 bumper if you are is in the market or have not found one yet.

Yes. That is a Mopar OEM blade/arm. BUT, there is a way around it http://diggsc.typepad.com/tomorrowan...d-pivot-p.html

Sorry but I'm no help with any other questions. I'm surprised I know the wiper blade answer. I don't even own a hardtop.

Where at in Pitt are you? I'm from Ohio but I'm in the Moon/Robinson/airport area A LOT

I'm sorry if I'm wrong, but the TJ stock bumper is hollow and the inside of the bumper is easily accecible... (mind my spelign...I mean spelinng...i mean...whatever....) without milk jugs(big plastic inserts on the outside of the bumper) If the metal on the bumper is thin just take a drill to it. The bolt for the lights aren't wide. Where were you planning on mounting the lights? toward the outside?

Sorry I don't know a lot about JK bumpers so if I'm wrong... at least I tryed

I don't have a hardtop, but I'm guessing you have a line running off the fluid bottle going to the rear wiper blade. I'd disconnect there, and blow air through it. I use my mouth but if it doesn't work use an air line.

Sounds like the pump is working and u got yourself a clog
