Replaced my driver's side window regulator and door switch! I now have the ability to open the window again, so do my passengers...

I'm not that impressed with ozzy mechanics and Jeep auto's so I got one from Rockauto. At least I know it will be the right one and it will work. I installed an alarm system in a business that reconditioned t/c's a few years ago and he told me it was a bit hit and miss whether they worked or not because he had no means to test it beforehand.

sounds like a good idea, as quotes my ranged from full re-manafacture,
to "replace whats needed", you had to ask, and prices differed a lot.

Out of interest how much did that Rock Auto T/C cost including freight?

Finally got that stubborn bolt out of the thermostat housing. Tried everything, eventually just drilled it out and tapped a new thread in.

I have been working on my white Jeep adding my goodies I have been hoarding for a while and transferring the parts I want from my green one.
I have added a RE 3.5 inch superflex kit into the white one. Installed a winch into my ARB bullbar and swapped it across. Added my rear tyre carrier. Modified my JJ headlight loom and swapped it with my headlights too. Replaced those parts on my green Jeep with standard parts. Installed my UHF and added a new stereo head unit. I swapped my wheels and tyres between the too.
I also did a water pump and timing belt on a Corolla.
Not bad for a weekends effort.

I added another relay for my LED light bar and swapped some wires around on the driving light relay so when I activate the lights it powers the light on the switch.
I was expecting a response from you. Man you are quick.
Your loom is awesome.

Installed some drawers in the back today.
Still have to trim and fit the wings but so far looks and feels good.
There was also a lack of tranny fluid when I checked today so topped it up and will see how it goes tomorrow, new trans filter kit is already on the way.
