Inner fenders come off with about 8 bolts in less than 2 minutes. The only thing attached to them will be the rock lights with a quick release connection. Easy access!

Last night was a bunch of small basics.
Rock lights installed.
Fill the squirter bottle & confirm it works.
Install the side screens in the Genright fenders.
Install CB.
I attempted to install the rear seat but it appears the rear latch brackets on a 93 YJ differ from the 90 YJ so the seat only attaches in the front. The donor rear seat is at my daughters so I'll have to see if it works.
Ran the antenna line for my HAM radio.
Started looking at a new mount for the CB radio antenna.

Next step is to pull my windshield hoop back off and fold the windshield down. The wiper linkage is rubbing on the inside of my HIGH QUALITY Chinese aftermarket windshield frame. Gotta see what I can do about that.
Then I need to modify my hoop tie in's & then install the soft top.

Getting close.

Took it for a little test drive and all seems well.

Still to do;
Install new Yukon Lockouts.
Pack tools.
Load on trailer.
Wheel!

Looks great. I put my lock outs on today and I'm batting .500 on them. One works perfect, one won't budge. I'm gonna pull it back apart tomorrow to figure out what's hitting in there. Oh and you'll need an extra hand to hold it all together while you try and get the large snap ring in. Unless you still have the little groove in the stub.

Same mirror I have been running for years. Just swing it forward out of the way.

No, that test will be when the rear locker is installed.

That's today's project.
I had heard it takes channel locks to turn them.
