    What did you do to your TJ today?

    been a work in progress past two weeks or so, all started with the common soft top rear window zipper pull being worn out and pulling apart in my hands. so much for the use of the bristle brush/zipper lube from bestop. so the soft top is useless once again... I have two fabric tops from...

    Clutch cylinder issue

    not sure to answer your direct issue with the clicking, but I can confirm I have had clicking and the intermittent sense of something binding then clicking when pressing the clutch since replacing the clutch master and slave on my NV3550. some days mine is silent other days I might get a click...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Been getting a clicking when turning past few months, knew there was a little play in the front universal joints though. Recently moved to a new place with a 33’ wide by 23’ deep garage and have the room to work on the bigger jobs vs the old place with a garage barely big enough to get the jeep...

    Bestop rear straps keep coming loose

    I may have misunderstood but I have not seen any mention of trektop. "straps and hooks" im under the impression of the sails and plastic wedges that fit under the tub lip. your probably correct. I hear soft top and I assume the typical oem style.

    Excessive brake dust?

    worn out notched pad slides on the steering knuckles causing the pad to hang or worn brake hose? id agree with the temp gun approach.

    Bestop rear straps keep coming loose

    I have the same issue when folding back the front portion. I have since ignored using the "sunrider" position, roofs either all the way on or all the way down for me. one thought is to adjust tension on your roll bar pivot point for the soft top by moving it away from the roll bar one hole...
