  1. Hardtop removable side glass! Probably totally safe, maybe!

    So, I took the plunge last season and decided to make my back glass removable.. been running it all winter without problems, so I figured I'd share, if anyone else wanted to be crazy. Step 1: Cut out your back glass with a windshield removal tool (harbor freight). This is a giant pain in the...
  2. New MasterTop products on Quadratec

    I gotta say MasterTop is killing it with cool new stuff lately. First their collection of cargo covers, windjammers, and bimini tops. Now they have a whole slew of standard replacement soft top windows (slightly cheaper than Mopar) plus a couple of funky new options: All vinyl (no fabric)...
  3. Any JL Hardtop owners that have a JK Hardtop to compare to?

    I'm wondering if the back window bar/seal at the bottom of the window/hatch/liftgate is the same on the JL and JK... it looks realllly close. The JL liftgate glass is only sold as a single unit, but I can get this part for a JK. I'd also be curious about the hinges - it's the same story...
  4. Anyone with a TJ (YJ?) Hardtop: can you measure your hinges for me?

    I'm wondering if the bolt holes of a TJ hinge will line up to the JL hardtop hinge bolts. From pictures on parts websites, it looks like there is some left/right bolt spacing variability (one hole on the TJ hinges is oblong). I'd also need to check if the overall width and height from the holes...
  5. Help me understand how my clutch pedal failed...

    Here's the scenario: Clutch pedal lost all hydraulic pressure (no resistance, wouldn't actuate the clutch). My vehicle did not yet have the first recall performed (though the dealer had three appointments to do it and didn't, for whatever reason). However, my hose never had the clip attached...
  6. Help me decide: Tire size/specs for 6sp JL Sport w/ JLUR springs

    I will be putting on springs/shocks from a JLUR soonish, and I'm anticipating my OEM Goodyears will start to look a bit out of place... so I'm shopping for rubber. I want a snow rated tire (I have to carry chains now) that's good for highways, gravel roads and offroad trails with maybe some...
  7. Complicated fog/aux lighting scenario

    Hey, perhaps old pros at lighting could lend some advice. Here's what I'm trying to achieve (BTW, I don't have a Tazer and I don't think I want to blow $200 on it for this little side project.): 1) I never want my aux lights to be on when my lighting mode is on low beams. 2) I want to use my...
  8. My admittedly weak justification for buying a Jeep...

    So, back when I was convincing my wife that I needed a Jeep, I used our somewhat challenging property as the justification. We have a narrow, twisting, somewhat steep dirt path down to a bunch of downed trees (firewood!). Clearly a Jeep was the only way to collect that wood, right? Even though...
  9. Color matched vinyl for factory paint?

    Has anyone tried or been able to color match factory paint to standard vinyl colors (3M, Avery, etc)? I'm sure it won't be 100%, but as close as possible... I've been trying to find a vinyl to match mojito (just playing around), but colors on websites are pretty subjective. As best I can tell...
  10. Easy jumper for High+Low+Fogs?

    Is there some easy way to jumper the high beam relay to keep the low beam and fogs on when highs are on? I have decent visibility far away when my highs are on, but considerably worse visibility in the low beam range compared to my actual low beams. My eyes have to adjust from bright to dim...
  11. Out of the mouths of babes...

    So, I'm doing yard work with my 9 year old daughter today and she says to me... "Dad, can we go offroading tomorrow in the Jeep? I don't wanna be mall rated." I had a good laugh, so I thought I'd share. Of course now I have to find find some place to take her that my Michelins can cope with...
  12. Soft top in safari mode, MPG increase?

    I've only put about 2000 miles on my Jeep, so, this is not based on long term numbers, and it's still breaking in, but I seem to have noticed a trend (looking at the evic). For the first 1000 miles or so, I had the top in mostly safari config, as the weather was nice. I was blown away with how...
