I finally got the hardtop on. I used the cargo strap method like I usually do. I’ve decided I’m getting too old for the cargo strap method, so I’ll be in the market for one of those fancy pulley lifts next spring.
My son and I went for a ride around the neighborhood. Our usual route takes us through a small local park with a dirt road. The road was all rutted out for some reason and much rougher than normal. Theo had a great time, so I was heading around the block to do it again when the Jeep died. I was able to get it started again but it would crap out again every few hundred feet. I’m pretty sure the issue is a loose belt, but I haven’t looked into it too deeply. I was just happy to make it home!
