Hey all

Anyone have safari doors? I want to know if they have a place to put the rear-view mirror, or if I'll need mirror movers also.

    I have a black soft top which came with my 2000 Wrangler Sport. I used for 2 weeks and switched to the hard top. I then traded in the car and dealer never asked for soft top. Now I have this like new soft top which is just collecting dust. It will fit a 1997-2000 model wrangler and costs $995.00 new from dealer. I am asking $350.00 plus cost of shipping to wherever. This top fits the model with full door--top goes above a fixed full door to top of winshield. If anyone needs--contact me a Boniecki@colint.com.

    Well, with the accident i was in (not my fault) i get to have my stock front bumper replaced. Woo hoo! I've been wanting to get that changed to an aftermarket for a while and now the insurance company is giving me $140 + labor to get it changed!

    So i chose the warn rock crawler bumper. like the way it looks and it already came with attachment points for rings, hooks, and lights. Now i just gotta figure out a way to get my insurance to pay for a lift. ;)

  • Hi everybody...I just bought a 2001 Wrangler Sport and was hoping to get some advice on security/alarm options. Can anyone make a recommendation?

    Perhaps one of you Jeepers can answer my query. We have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler, 4.0, 5 speed transmission. I have been contemplating the purchase of a tow bar that has two connecting plates that bolt to the front bumper and terminates into a wishbone type arm(s) with a coupler. That's the easy part. Now, my question is, does one just put the transfer case in neutral just and release the parking brake, or is there other considerations such as locking (unlocking) the front wheel steering, etc.? Can anyone help?

  • You may want to try this:

    Splice the ignition wire at the starter with a HEAVY DUTY toggle switch and fairly heavy gauge wire leads. This will cut off the power source to the starter. If you have a console mount the toggle switch in there. Remeber to paint the switch black so it doesn't stand out.

    If you have an electric fuel pump you can do the same to that. Just remember to splice the power feed and not the fuel gauge wire.

    You can also buy the stuff to conceal the wires under the Jeep. Its that plastic tubing that the factory uses to protect the wire harnesses. Tape the ends well so that the wire doesn't show. This makes the job look professional in case the crook has time to look for the reason why "his/her brand-new Jeep" won't start!
  • Does anyone know how to remove the factory cross bars on roofrack of the 2000 JGC? I have a Yakima system attached to the rails, but the factory crossbars are in the way. With my Explorer, I was able to loosen a couple of screws and slide them off, but I can't figure these out.

    Does anyone know where I can get an inexpensive hardtop for my 1990 Wrangler YJ? Do they make hardtops for that year?

    Dennis81... to remove your crossbars you need to pop the rear caps off the side rails and slide the crossbars off at the rear of the roof rack. I'm not exactly sure how these rear caps are installed... snapped on or bolted. You should be able to figure this out by looking at them.

    Oops... from the date of your post, I'm sure you've found this out by now! ;0)

    I own a 95 Grand Cherokee Laredo without factory fog lights.I would like to install some, but would I have to drill out the front bumper for the brackets?Thank you

    Anyone ever install an after market keyless entry system?How difficult is it?I bought a used grand cherokee and I could not get the remote for it.Dealer wants over a hundred dollars for one.Thank you.
  • Last month, I paid $100 for a second remote AND key for my '99 JGC Ltd. Dealer said key could not be duplicated elsewhere, b/c of the embedded anti-theft device, however, the remote alone was only $45.
  • If anyone knows a good website that tells how to install an Amplifier and Subwoofer sound system into my Jeep, I would really appreciate it. I have a box with 2 10" Subs and a 420 Watt amp with a JVC 45x4 Watt Deck. The Deck is installed, but the Amp and Subs aren't. I have all the cords and connectors I need also. Thanks for the help!!
  • its my turn to talk about my jeep comanche, most of you are saying "whats that?", its a cherokee pickup okay, i have to say that so you get a mental picture, i have jks quicker disconnects (the owner is my father), ACOS coil spacers, bilstein gas shocks model 5150, coil-over leaf-springs in the rear, track-bar, shock conversions, new motor mounts, with 34" Mickey Thompson TrXus(by interco) tires, custom front bumper and Warn winch, IPF headlights and to top it all off a 3cd in-dash changer from a nissan frontier. if anyone wants to talk about jeepin in rapid city, talk to charley at Chimney Canyon 4x4 and he'll get a hold of me, or if you want to talk back to me, e-mail me at psychokid23@hotmail.com and put the subject as Jeep talk 22 so i'll know not to delete it with the rest of the crap i get.

    Switch to a smaller CB - something like the Midland 79-290. It is an SSB rig, and is MUCH smaller. Look into an Overhead Security Console from Tuffy - or one of their replacement center consoles and put it in there.

    It is too much work to try to find a safe mounting location for anything larger.

    All,
    I'm considering swapping out my 6 disc CD changer in my 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited in favor of a Sony 10 disc DVD changer. And then, installing monitors in the back of the seats for viewing. It looks like it has the same overall dimensions as the one in there now. Has anyone out there done anything like this to their Jeep(Liberty)? Do I need to change the stereo as well or, can the OEM stereo handle the feed from the DVD player?
  • I was thinking of buying the 6 speaker outland soundbar. Does anyone know if this is a good system or would recommend something else?

    need cheap 16's for my jeep will not pay more than $200. :mad:
  • Definitely try e-bay - That is where I bought my jeep. Speaking of which, my jeep only came with a hard top. Can you give me any tips on how to get it off? I'm clueless. Trying not to go to the dealer
  • Has anyone seen or heard of a lift of more than 4.5 inches for the Grand Cherokee if so who makes it. it's a 1994
  • bookittybookitty Posts: 1,303
    Jay,try a local Jeep Owners club; they are all over the country. My wife has a 1999 Wrangler, and my son and I have removed and re-installed the hard top. If there is a rear wiper, that needs to be unplugged, and you will also need a size 50 or 60 male torx bit. If you own a Jeep Wrangler, it would pay to have a set of the torx bits. If you see a jeep with the top removed, don't be shy. Usually Jeep owners are really nice about sharing information and helping others. That's how my son learned. Good luck. You might try an Internet search to locate some local clubs.
