Folding the windscreen on a YJ?

Stripping LoModYJ down for the roll cage install this weekend...trying to remove the sport bars coming forward to the windshield...looks like I need to fold the windscreen to get the bars loose (after the [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] torx bolts).

Is folding the windshield as easy as removing the two brackets above the speaker grills and undoing the sport bars? Is there anything hidden behind the dash?

Re: Folding the windscreen on a YJ?

you should only have to remove either the big torx in the bracket or the 2 smaller ones. I THINK it's the big one, but it's been a while since i've done it.

Thanks. it was just that easy. having Torx bolts that actually cooperated and didn't strip or break helped whole bunches.

Re: Folding the windscreen on a YJ?

Jeep looks cool with the Windshield down! I see you removed it from the adjuster. I take the T50 bolt out on the back of the role cage. You also mentioned that you stripped out a couple torx heads, I had the same problem and invested in better quality Torx bits. My dad always had Craftsman tools in the garage when I was growing up. I'm starting to find that they aren't made like thay use to be [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]. My Craftsman set is getting smaller. Everytime one snaps or breaks, I buy one from the Snap-on truck.

Re: Folding the windscreen on a YJ?

Actually had no problems with the Torx bolts this time around...

The reason for folding the windshield was really to just get the sport bars out...Taking it over to Goferit Offroad today for a front cage.

Interesting to see what had accumulated under all my carpeting over the last 14 years...and the 2 parking tickets I got in Hilo, Hawaii that fell down between the dash and the windshield...don't think I ever paid them... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
