Picked up a hard top, found a 95 yj and grabbed the wiring for defrost and rear wiper washer. Looked like it would be plug and play a quick look under dash and maybe a 89 yj did not come equipped with rear defrost will have to figure that one out

Mine is a base model so I am lucky it had an ashtray. When I replaced the rear window it came only with the hols so I loooked to for the wires didn't find anything that wasn't being used so I blew that idea off. However there is room in the panel to do it. You can also lay your wiring in the existing loom going back that way so not too bad a job. Should be simple just have to get a couple of switches and go from there.

Jeep looks great and nice build. I am having a hard time deciding on keeping my top tan or painting it black after I get mine painted. The black on blue looks good too. Keep up the good work!

That is a great looking / clean YJ. Not that many left that solid & clean in this part of Canada. Love the color & the square lights on the front. Good job.

Donny, could you offer some details or more pictures on your lockbox? I need to do the same thing for my YJ, and yours looks great.

It is simple can be made from wood or metal. Use some brackets one side and a top, mount them together . When you close and lock the back door no one can see or get to your stuff
