Minor Upgrade Questions


Bought a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport and haven't had a lot of time until now to fix it up a bit. Need some help in figuring out the best way to attack.

1. It's a hard top and I'm looking to switch to a soft top. Any recommendations on a soft top to use with full size doors?

2. The driver side door is sometimes really hard to roll down. Does anyone have a diagram to the door internals so I know what to look for once I take it apart?

3. The flares and bumper are really faded. I've read a lot of good posts about painting both. The bumper has a big dent in the back. Is this worth going to a junkyard to find or should I just purchase a new one?

4. One of connectors to the side view mirrors is peeling. Does anyone know a good place where I can buy just this one piece? I've seen the whole mirror assembly, but was hoping to avoid replacing the whole thing.

Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

Most of your issues such as the peeling mirror, rusted handle, bumper and faded fenders are easily repaired by sanding them down and repainting with black satin fusion rattle can paint. The factory bumper is pretty weak so I'm sure you can hammer that dent out fairly easy.Along with the new soft top, you will still need to buy the frame, hardware, door surrounds, and tailgate bar unless you go with a frameless top or some Bestop tops, which comes with hardware.
