Feel free to. The spiderweb shades help keep the wind down which is good since the mornings are still cold. I am trying no to figure out how I can "fold" them up when I want to run open without having to fully remove them. Maybe even using them to create a "pocket" to hold the trektop windows.

I am loving my spiderwebshade. I folded the back piece under itself when i threw my soft top on the other day and i roll up my back windows and stick them in the fold to keep them with with me while the top is on.


Just fold it under itself and loop the bungee cords.

just undo the one of the sides, roll it up and wrap a bungee cord around it.. would that work?

Yes....33x12.50x15, and no rubbing. My wheels stick out pretty far, and I chopped my factory flares.

It may I am also looking to see how hard it is to remove and replace the plastic in the side windows for the trektop. If I can pull it out and easily get it back in then storage should be easy.

The main thing to rub is flares. I have 32x11.5 on my stock tj with only 1.25 BL but I have no rubbing at full flex thanks to wider flares the PO installed

Replaced my drivers seat bottom foam with a new replacement from Mopar! Made a world of difference from the old worn out foam that was on there.

Oh and replaced my torn shifter boot as well.

Debating on when to change my oil. The guy we bought it from put Synthetic oil in it. I know nothing about synthetic oil, but it's expensive. Anyone recommend what weight and type of synthetic oil i need? Thanks.

Anyone know how hard it is to replace the U-joints on the front axle knuckles of the Dana 30?? Climbed underneath to check for a squeak and noticed mine are SHOT.

The hardest part for me was getting the 12 point bolts off that hold the hub on. Then you put the front up on jack stands and use something thin, metal, and about 3 or three inches long and wedge it so it rests inbetween the hub and something that doesn't move on the axle tub. Then turn the wheel inside and it will pop the hub off without damaging the gasket most likely.

That was the hardest part for me.

Day 3 of my Jeep's makeover. Today's task was installing my Or-Fab tire carrier/jerry can mount and cruise control. I started with the carrier because it is a bigger job. All in all it wasn't too difficult at all and once you get over the fact that you are drilling pretty big holes into your tub it isn't bad at all. I ran into a couple of issues that slowed me down a little bit. First off I couldn't get the OEM striker pin off of the OEM mount so I tried cutting it down to fit among other things with no luck. Not too expensive of a replacement part though so I'll just run to NAPA tomorrow. The second thing that slowed me down was they sent me the wrong hinge mount. Luckily I ordered the non can carrier as well on accident so I was able to dig through that box and get the correct one. Here are pictures of the trouble.

Holes don't line up.


The correct mount is on the right.


After I solved that issue it was pretty straight forward. Here are some more picutres from the install.

my "creative" way to support the Evap Canister without unplugging it all.





I spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to figure out why I couldn't get it to latch.




I love the look of the carrier. There has been quite an improvement in the past couple of days.
