TJ inner doors

It got too cold for me to bear anylonger today so I put the top back on the doors. I noticed 2 things.

I have a crack on the molding on my inner doors and the windows don't want to roll up or down. I am thinking the windows need lubricant. I have never had a need to take my inner door panels off. So can anyone provide some insight as to how to remove the panel?

Also My top is weathered to the point I have seen alot of older jeeps where the top material turns to grains. IE rough. Is there anything that I can put on it to reverse or repair this problem?

I tried wax once and that was a mistake. Took months to get rid of it.

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

Move to California and you won't have to worry about doors, much less a top.

The door panel will have clips...just pull on the edges...after you remove the typical inside hardware.

As for the top.....Armorall 'might' help a little....but otherwise, about time to buy another one.

Eddie Hit the nail on the head.... Diesel is killing me plus I am getting tired of unhooking the trailer every day just to get out of bed and hook it back up the next day. I think I will leave it loaded with tools and hooked up to the trailer. I may even put road tires (salvaged road tires) on the jeep to make it handle a bit better on the road.

I would like to grease those windows up. I would imagine that D dawg is correct that there are some clips but how do you get that window handle off. I don't see a screw or a clip on it...

You need to push the panel in a bit and pull on the handle so you can see the clip that's there. pull it out with a screwdriver or small pick but keep an eye on it as they can flick off. You also need to unscrew the door pull handle and without looking I can't remember if there are one or two more screws lowdown on the panel. After that it just pulls off.

As for greasing the window, the mechanism on mine has always seemed fine. I think it's more likely to be the door trim that the edges of the window slide up and down. Mine have caused problems in the past and another guy at work was having problems with his windows sticking on his 4x4. One of the fitters told him to squirt some dish washing liquid soap down the door trim. Worked a treat on mine too!

I have a soft top but I think best way to protect the hard top from decay would be to repaint it.

best way to get the handle clip out is with a rag, slid it in at the panel and move it back and forth, it is suppeer easy, i used to use a screw driver and it took atleast 10 min per handle, with the rag trick i can pull them off in seconds, and the clip usually pokes into the rag so it doesnt go a flying.

now as for the mechenisims inside i cleaned all mine down with electrical contact cleaner and then lubed them up with dry graphite lube, and they all work great.
