Can someone post pictures of their tailgate bar retainer clips with the hard top window? I see people running them with the hard top but when I put mine of the window doesn't like to close all the way so I cant use them with the HT.

Those are for the soft top rear window.  ALL soft top hardware has to come off for the hard top.

I've heard that some people are able to keep them on.

But yours doesn't work with it on right?  I know some people are able to keep the windshield channel on for the bikini with the hardtop too (on a YJ) but mine wouldn't fit that way.

Took my diff covers off, cleaned the diffs out, painted the diff covers, and rotated my tires. Noticed my bumpstop cup was a little loose so I tightened that up. Changed my washer fluid out for the prestone stuff, also topped my coolant off. How does everything look? Found nothing broken.








This did look a little odd on the rear ring.

You should invest in some Lube Locker gaskets, so you don't have to ever clean that RTV off again.

Gets the job done, plus I'm not gonna be like YOU and lock my rear and snap it. But if I do snap it...all the more reason for a D44!

I said screw it. I'm going for the trannsmission tonight.

Found out my nutserts are welded to the frame.





I found a little rust, wire wheeled it all off, primed and painted.





I didnt like the way the filter looked. Had a ton of junk on it too.




I'll look for leaks in the morning. Emptied 5 qts in and saw nothing while I cleaned up. Skid will go back up tomorrow also. Diffs will likely be done wednesday to let the paint/enamel cure and harden.

I ordered the front from NorthRidge 4x4  http://www.northridge4x4.com/shop/lubelocker-d30  And the 8.8 from ECGS  http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-6240457-ford-8-8-lubelocker-gasket.html  (ECGS also has trans pan lube lockers too).

Bought myself a new OX cable for the rear. I need to protect this one from the exhaust a little better this time.
