Why relocate the sound bar??
Since this will be my primary top, I didn't want the sound bar to be sitting out in the rain and eventually snow. Also, the speakers and dome light will be of better use in the actual cab with me

I'll probably get around to doing that soon and taking out the back seatbelts but there was a storm a' brewin and we wanted to get it on asap and my old top was doing nothing to keep rain out.

Changed my O2 sensor and put a one foot hose on the A/C drain and stopped it from leaking into the passenger floor. $.47 for the hose and $34 for the sensor. YAY!!!

Oh, and painted my wheels, made some hinge post mirrors, extended my spare bumpers to accommodate the offset, fixed the passenger seat so it doesn't shake around and rattle, and.... umm.... I think that's it.

While it might have been "luck" that it ended up there IMO (and from my experience) that gap is a real asset if you ever start switching to a bikini or wrap around jammer...and I know the halftop flips back like a sunrider...I ran one for about 3 years and just sold it off when I got my Frameless NX...but I have been running the duster and wraparound Jammer with my Safari top.....I never really had any problems with my hallftop.....(here's a Pic).....just didn't like it as much as what i have now....GOOD LUCK WITH YOURS!!!!

It was a clear vinyl hose at lowes with 5/8" inside diameter. I think the outside diameter was 3/4 or 7/8. It was on $.47 per foot and I just bought a one foot section. Fits on snug enough that you don't even need a clamp.

Yeah the one I took out was Bosch. It was constantly throwing codes. Glad to have it changed out now.

Do you really need a special tool to change those sensors?

I used my TJ as a stereo today while I laid 15 yards of mulch for my girlfriends parents. It killed my battery, but luckily I have a manual and was able to roll start it!

I didn't. I just used a snap-on 7/8 wrench and it came right out.
