Spent the last 4 days replacing the rear main seal, oil pan, transmission cooler lines, transmission pan, and shifter cable. The oil and transmission pans had some rust bubbles, and were inexpensive. The RMS was easy, but getting the exhaust header off about kicked my butt. My bolts between the header and exhaust manifold were very corroded and I couldn't get a wrench on them until I removed the left fender.

The transmission oil cooler lines were easy, once the exhaust hear was out of the way. The only issue I has was one of the spring clips, that hold the line into the radiator cooler dropped on my floor. I spent an hour looking, and I couldn't find it. Local auto parts store had a 12 pack of 3 different size for $11. Sure enough, after I bought a replacement, I found the lost clip laying on the floor in an obvious location. Doh!

Installed a flood light and tested it in the field.

I swapped out my front speakers for pods with Polk 5.25" speakers and replaced the struts on the back glass. Now the glass goes all the way up and stays there! Amazing!

Yeah, I only had the hardtop on the Jeep for a few days after buying it in the spring and walked into the rear glass at least three times due to bad struts. Hurt like hell. I ordered new ones but pulled the top before they arrived. I put them on before I put the hardtop on this fall and it’s nice to not fear for my forehead when I walk around the back of the Jeep when it’s open!

Installed a BRAND NEW 2006 OEM TOP on the LJ. The aftermarket top that came with my Jeep when I bought it was garbage. So I drove to the dealer to show them and stumbled upon this one. It was unboxed last week for the FIRST TIME since 2006. Belonged to a Rubicon with one owner. They bought it with both top options but only used the hardtop. Never used the soft top. Not once. Crazy find. I was like...

After a 30 minute switcheroo I drove home with my new factory top. Been feeling like this all day....
