So I figured I let the bedlined tail light guards cure long enough.
Put them back on.

Awhile back Kmart, I think, was blowing this out at something like $2 a can. So I figured I would
grab it and maybe it will come in handy for something.

So I decided to try it on this small leak I have developed. I thought I might have gotten it the first time but noooo.
The first time I used that 3M RTV that comes in the strips in the box. Decided to try the Rustoleum out.
Using my air hose I think I figured out where the small section I missed is. Right around the plate under that bolt.

Didn’t do anything to my XJ this weekend. Instead I took the LJ, threw on the half doors and threw back the roof and back window, threw in some boogie boards and headed to Wildwood with my girls. Good day in the surf and lots of open air driving.

Well deserved, you've made some extreme progress on the XJ in a short period of time.

Thanks Lizard, still feels like i have so much to do but you’re right, doesn’t mean I haven’t gotten a lot done.
Gotta admit the wrangler is fun, I think I’m gonna enjoy it. Just wasn’t planning on it taking up garage space yet.

Oh I fixed the AC in the WJ the other day. It worked but had really weak air flow. Swapped the polarity of the fan cables and now it blows strong.
Apparently a whole series of the blower resistor boards were reverse polarity and the fan just ran backwards. Amazing.

Replaced the wiper arms/wipers and dropped in a new efan from a 97+ to replace my 95s with a busted frame.

Taken the last couple days off but for a few days before that was feeling my way through my rear seat headrest install.
Have not figured out everything yet but am getting there.

Unless you're enjoying the challenge, you could simply get a rear seat that had them stock. If not an XJ seat, you could Frankenstein sections of the frame in place.

I rotated my tires, cleaned up and fixed the grounds on my horns, adjusted the LED bulbs in my headlamp housings, cleaned up and fixed the grounds on my fog lamps, adjusted my driver's door window track, and got the yeti ready for a small weekend excursion into the Manistee National Forest in Michigan for a three day bluegrass festival just meer miles from my family's ancestral farm. Gonna get back into the woods, run some trails, see some family, and enjoy the top tier sounds of Keller and the Keels, Leftover Salmon, and Billy Strings.

That would mean getting one from Europe. It is a factory in those versions. The shipping costs that a couple people have quoted me are through the roof cause I have checked.

Also the rear headrests in those are a different size then front ones. Which means the extra Coverking headrest covers that I have might not fit.

Plus I have tons of extra front seat parts to cannibalize to try and pull this off.

Another option that guys have done is putting in the ZJ or WJ rear seats in there XJ's. Not a straight bolt in but it appears to be minimum modding to pull it off. And you do get the added bonus of having the split rear seat fold down option.

Here is shot of the front seat headrest bracket with the plastic tubes that hold the headrest that I am using from the front seat.

So you are doing what I was thinking, just from the front seats. Hope that works!!

i recently had my rear control arm and ball joint replaced on my 04 grand .old one was shot .rubber was gone.

to do the job my mechanic only charged me labor 90 bucks .

i got a great mechanic ,he lets me bring my own parts and just charges me labor .well worth 90 bucks to not to have wrench off old rusted 170 thousand mile nuts and stuff .

Pulled out my dead battery and put it on my charger. Run it thru 3 recondition mode cycles because it wouldn't take a charge. Analyzer says it's good now so I'm running a slow charge to fully charge it. Hope it will hold a good charge now.
