Replaced rear seat with Bestop Trailmax seat with headrests

I did this primarily to provide head support, so my son is safer in a rear end collision.
Seat came in 2 days for $275 from Amazon. Wow!
The hardest part was getting the bolts out of the brackets....

I didn't know to think about gearing and came to find mine had 3.07. (Aftermarket diff covers had no tabs). It was pretty anemic with 31s, and 5th gear was useless unless going downhill. Much...

U may end up waiting forever if your holding out for Dana 44. A Dana 35, properly geared will likely suffice, unless ur a hardcore rock hound.
Just FYI, I found a Dana 44/30 pair geared the way I...

Hold out for 6cyl. It's known to be very reliable, even with high mileage. And going with a 98-99 will be cheaper than a newer one.

It has to turn over a couple times before it fires.
I had the fuel pump replaced about a year ago, so I would hope fuel pressure isn't the issue.

Disconnected each terminal, wire brushed each one, reconnected. Both look fine, with no corrosion, rust, etc.

Off = 12.7V
While cranking = 10.5V...

Guess I should've included a pic, but the posts look perfect, to my eye. No corrosion, tight connections, etc.
Is it still worthwhile to disconnect and wire brush everything?

If I bolt this "across the rear" bar onto the rear corners of the TJ roll bars, can I still move my soft top up and down like usual?

My 98 TJ is a little slow to turn over at startup, but once started runs fine.
