    Just completed a little jeep improvement project - new reverse/back-up lights. There is nothing necessary about back-up lights, and if they didn't originally come on my jeep I wouldn't care, but since they are there they should work! When I got the jeep 6+ years ago, there was some weird tail-light wiring spliced into a trailer plug etc, and the old ones (I think OEM) didn't function. I cleaned up the wiring, new bulb, transmission blade connector etc, and got them working, but they seemed to always be a bit iffy (mostly I think it was a grounding issue from the housing/studs into the body). I would play with them a bit, clean up the corroded mount studs etc and they would usually work for a while. Went to do that this time...and the nuts were frozen on the corroded studs to the point that both studs broke off on one, and one nut stripped out on the other. So I bought some complete unit Crown replacements (could have just replaced the studs I guess) and mounted them up. I cleaned off a little paint around the stud mount to ensure good ground, and hopefully they will work for a long time - a lot of replacement stuff is not as good as OEM these days (clearly says made in china) - so we'll see. The plastic lenses are nice and clear with new bulbs so they put off a bit more light.

    spent a couple hours trying to stretch and get a new top to fit - it isn't all that warm today so that wasn't helping. Also spent some time working on the doors trying to get them to close with the perfect latch strike and nice and even fit around the edges....not sure its possible....but hey a new top! And its black - wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I really do with the black rock sliders. Off to Moab on Thurs....

    I insulated some panels on the buggy to hopefully reduce the heat on the occupants legs. Used a product called Lizard Skin.
