    two loops. one on the inside of the windshield and one on the hood. go to a place where hicking/camping supplies are sold and get a nylon strap to hold the windshield down. some kind of soft rubber bumper should be placed between the frame and hood. only bad part is gravel popping up and hitting you.

    axle seals can be a pain and brakes are easy are ur rear seals leaking or are u trying to be preemptive in replacing them

    thanks for your input. I have a hard top and steel doors to run for the three months to get me through winter. Thats not a problem. The soft top I want to purchase will be going on in april and off in like early november. I just cant decide if I want to run the full soft top of the half. P. S. Have you seen those new Smittybuilt PVC nets? I think they are pretty awseome. I might have to get one of those too. Never enough money for all the stuff lol have a good one ttyl

    Element doors and halftop vs Supertop: My personal opinion on things like this? I really like to be able to totally change from Summer to Winter. I like full doors and a hard top in the winter, and I like Bikini tops and tube doors in the summer. It's like having two vehicles. But it gets cold here in Colorado, and really hot in the summer. If I lived in milder weather places, I probably would run a Supertop year round, and just take out the windows in summer.

    The Bestop upper sliders will not fit Element doors. The pin placement is all wrong. Upper sliders are designed only for factory doors. It does not have anything to do with weight - in fact, the first Element Doors even had a foot step that you could stand on (but only when door was closed).

    i take the lazy way out with the u joints a shop does um 10 bucks a pop and its just easier to get them to do it hehe i know I'm lazy

    i never remember the part number on those, i almost get it right, but its not hard to look up. non greasable u joints are better. no real special tools, a hammer, a small chisel and punch, if the rings are on the inside of the shaft they are a little pain. its almost inevitable to ruin a couple u joints when you're learning. there's a bunch of little needle bearings inside the caps, don't lose them when you remove the caps for install, keep the joint lined up with the caps or else you'll crush the bearings during install also. if its your only driver, and you have to take it apart after you get parts, get an extra joint, and return it if you do well.
