Loosen the adjuster sleeve on the drag link and turn the adjuster sleeve until straight (the link from your steering box to the tie rod bar)

What I did to my TJ today

^^ yeah it's pretty easy
If you are looking at it straight on. Rotate towards the ground to make the wheel urn towards the driver side and up to go towards the passenger side

Sweet thanks. Are there any more pictures like that around? Love how easy it is to follow. Wish there was an entire collection of those for an entire jeep.

Shouldn't be a pain. Only takes a couple min. Check out YouTube. There are a few good videos there to help you out.

Plan on taking my top completely off! Just gotta find a way to store the hardware. Got a cargo net and a bikini top on. Probably never putting a full top on again!

Looking at a brand new soft top unfolded and spread out across our bed to loosen up. It's 40* here! Says not to try to install till it's at least 70*! I think this next weekend is suppose to warm up to around 70* for the high, let's hope so.....
