Do those "reverse lights" put out any useable light?

I just did it to mine. It took me a little over a week but I only got to work on it a couple hours a day during the week. You just need muscle to get it all taken apart. Mine were so rusted in we had to cut them out with a torch and beat the ends out. After we got everything taken apart it wasn't hard at all to put it back together. It shouldn't take you as long if you can work on more often then I could and have bigger muscles. I'm a girl whose 5'6" and 135. And I could do it with some help!!

Got the top down for the first time this year and took it out to play for the first time with a biggish group. And bought a season pass for the local campground trails. About to go take my stripes off. I'm going back out to play tomorrow and might have gotten a few custom pinstripes done today!!

Yes they are really bright. Polarized 4.5 watt leds. A lot brighter then my stock back up lights. I'll try to get some night pics tonight

I'm getting less and less impressed with my new soft top...Bestop sailcloth replace a top
I put it down for the first time and it won't lay as flat ad my old top, the plastic that holds it in the door surrounds won't allow it to lay all the way down?


I don't want to bend the pieces that clip in the surrounds because they are "L" shaped... confused

Flip em towards the inside.....between the two angled pieces.

It just takes practice. If it breaks the first time you fold it up, THEN send it back.
Here's another shot.....

Brought her home from the offroad shop. Regeared to 4.10's. Nice difference.
Also had a few little things done. Glad to have her back. Now if it would only warm up enough to take the top off!

Brought it in the garage for exploratory service. Most bushings are worn out which explains my tail waddle. I also saw how the short stock arms make for a hell of a time when flexing ons 4" lift. Finally discovered that my end is about half inch to the right but wasn't able to get it adjusted just yet. The rear trackbar, although adjustable doesnt have the stock plate nut thing and I'm having a hard time getting my wrench in there.

Finally fixed the cable in the seat to tumble is forward. Took longer to pull the seat than replace the cable. Best $6.50 I spent on my TJ yet
