Yes, but they shut off about 1/4 from the lowest setting instead at the lowest setting...

Found a thread about cleaning the soft top windows with pledge instead of windex. Cleared the windows up immediately and they smell like lemon.

There is a whole thread for this, stickied to the top of the YJ General forum.

I have to work today, or I would get started mocking up my NV3550/8.8 swap. Need to install the NV3550, and 8.8 (mocked up), verify my pilot bushing will work,
Figure out how far below the frame the Tcase will sit so I can order up the correct Barnes skid, and set my pinion angle.
Then I have to re-install all my stock stuff because the next step will take my YJ down for a few weeks.
Send out the 8.8 to have the perches and tubes all wended up.
Install my locker, and all my new brakes, then (in 3-4 weeks) install everything and have a 2.5L with a NV3550 and 8.8...

But nothing today....

You can also get plexus off of Amazon. About $10 per can, but it lasts for months after you use it.I, and a can has lasted me two summer's so far. Has the best reviews out of anything there is for plastic Windows and specifically prevents and helps remove clouding.

I use Pledge. It lasts 5-6 months or so. Smells like lemons, but the smell only lasts a day or so.

Those are pretty swank dude, got a link to the ebay store you bought them from and/or the brand? Also I'd be interested in seeing how they look turned on.

Finally solved my fuel pressure /pump issue. Turned out to be a bad connector/harness. There is a tiny amount of play in the connector. If I wiggle the connector, the jeep fires right up and gas gauge works. If I wiggle it the other way, she starts to sputter and gauge pegs. Seem all I have to do is replace the connector. Any suggestions? The weather pack connectors look good, and buying a kit is pricey, but I'm thinking I might run into more of the same issues in the future. A weather pack kit might be a wise investment.
