top,doors,heat,and glass are very nice in the winter for plowing driveway. but with the top on it sounds like your riding in a tin can that someone is beating on with a ball bat.

Some people will go to great lengths to own a Jeep without buying one

New radiator installed, new p/s cooler installed. Ran it around the yard a while to make sure the cooling fans came on. The explorer dash cluster isn't tickling my fancy, I might ditch it for some basic gauges. I'd rather know exactly what my temp and oil is at then just a generic sweeping gauge.

Also got my brake lights and tail lights wired up. Ordered a new cb off ebay so hopefully get that this week. Need to make some tow points front and rear, undecided how to do it/ where to put it. Also installed my limit straps on the front.

So I decided to ditch the Explorer dash cluster. I picked it up at a junkyard for $25, while it worked and all my gauges and lights worked it just didn't read right. It was showing my engine temp over 3/4 and the oil pressure barely off the bottom line. As well it was screwing with my Alternator. So I bought 3 Summit gauges for now, oil-temp-volts. Got those wired in last night. Temp stays around 180, oil pressure HOT is around 25-30 @ Idle, and after wiring in a 194 bulb and socket into the Alternator harness is right at 14 @ idle with loads.

I installed the hard top, I think my LR 1/4 must sag from back to front . The top fits good along the windshield and all along the pass side, but on the drivers it sits right at the rear corner but then progressively makes a larger gap up to the door pillar. Oh well nothing a few larger washers, bolts, and some thick seal can handle. Its not a street queen.

Installed the hood last night, reinstalled the front driveshaft and checked for binding. Guess I needed to run the slip at the axle side instead of the tcase. Driveshaft can operate at more of an angle without binding this way. Ears and shape of yoke make the difference.

Taking it out today to shake it down and have some fun. Figure out what more needs to be done prior to our trip to Attica in 1.5 weeks.
