Installed new top... for first time putting it together, wow super easy!  I had one of the zippered versions, and it was such a pain, even after 2 years of use!

Drove to work with no doors via the toll road.   Cops did a look to make sure I had at least one side mirror then speed away.

Last night I got the new to me transfer case with the SYE installed, man that thing was a bear to align.  I also installed a Novak cable shifter.  I hope to get the driveshafts and new Barnes 4WD skidplate on tonight.  Then I can align the pinion and get this thing back on the road.

Drove it! Jeep made the full 300 mile, 6 hour trip down to Corolla with absolutely zero issues apart from some A/C condensation leakage in the passenger footwell. No explosions or fires, gauges clean throughout the trip, and achieved an impressive 19-20 MPG with consistent speeds of 55-70 the whole way.

The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

Glad it did great for you!  Good mileage too.  Also make sure the rubber elbow is on the HVAC box drain outlet on the engine side of the firewall.  I think a piece of 1/2" hose angled downward can go over it too with a hose clamp (what I did).  If its not there, the water wicks back thru the firewall at the outlet and goes to the floor or passenger feet and toes.

Yeah, I didn’t hit any rain on the way down—it’s A/C condensation. Should be able to take care of that this week.

Just to be clear - to maybe help others - when I refer to the water wicking, the condensate dribbles out of the box from the horizontal outlet outside the firewall.  If the regular OEM rubber elbow is not there (they rot and fall off or get bumped off) the condensate has a habit of wicking back along the pipe and gets back into the cab and drips on the floor or the feet.

Got the driveshafts (front original, new Adams rear CV) and the new Barns4WD skid plate.  Had to do a little modification to the transmission mount, but got the job done.  Still need to set the rear pinion angle and see if I'll need the angled rear trackbar relocation bracket and see if I need to reverse my rear shocks if they run the bottom spring perch.

Experienced one of the joys of Jeep ownership with it.  No windows or door uppers, combined with a significant downpour, made the commute home memorable!

Installed this Synergy basket in my JK. Their instructions had it mounted low - roughly even with the top of the tub. I wanted to be able to have the dog ride in the back sometimes and use the bed for other things so u custom mounted it up high and set it up to swivel down for access.

Drove the Jeepster on the highway for the first time.  Does 60mph pretty good, but I wish I had a tach gauge. RPM's gotta be pretty high.
