I just got my jeep today off the lot... 5 hours away. Test drove it for about 45 mins, me and my dad both. Didn't feel anything. Get 4 hours into the drive home 2 states away and i feel a clicking noise underneath my gas pedal when I'm turning the wheel barely left and right. Came with a warranty.. but its upsetting. Anyone have/know about this problem?

I was also looking at the Olympic 4x4 Products 117-124 - Olympic 4X4 Products Safari Mirrors for 76-12 Jeep® CJ-5, CJ-7 & CJ-8 Scrambler, Wrangler YJ, TJ, JK & Unlimited - Quadratec

I liked those cuz they fit into where the door WAS and seem to be pretty easy to attach.detach.
I have these and live them!

Dome light upgrade photos. Before on top, after below. I know the 3rd picture has a fuzzy first picture but you can still tell how much brighter the back seat is from the second photo.

Awesome upgrade for under $20. Amazon.com: Putco 280003W Type T White LED Stick Bulb - Pair: Automotive

Let's try to keep on topic here people. This is a great thread with a lot of good ideas and info. It would be a shame to lock it because of a few members who seem to have a difficult time staying on topic.

Maybe a bit. Hard to say for sure from a photo but I would guess about $100 is what I would charge.

Another thing to do, and I think it's genius, is to just get some spot mirrors. A guy in my jeep club put some on his a/c vents. That's all he uses.

Best part… only $3 and change!

I got up early today and cleaned all the inside windows. I noticed that they seemed a bit hazy last night. And currently it is raining in Milwaukee so he is getting a bath!

Ditched the softtop for the rest of summer, installed The J-Kini, cargo net and safari straps.

Next is the Ace rock rails I'm patiently awaiting in the mail.

(1) Lange Hoist installed in garage.
(2) and hardtop off.
(3) Driver and passenger Lange mirrors ll installed on windshield brackets.
(4) Doors off the vehicle (What a bitch. I used a floor jack gently supported by wood)
(5) UV Treated Wet Okole Neoprene seat covers.
(6) Install soft top in the event of rain, but keep down and topless.

I just love the feeling of driving without the doors and top, but the wife is a little nervous watching the road zoooooommmm by her.
