    I have a Kirkham canopy too. I put spring clamps on the leading edge of the rear spoiler and put the bar in the V of the clamps (rather than tying the canopy to the spoiler).

    Ok, well I felt I should update this thread probably for the last time. At 195,000 miles, my trooper seems to have lost 1-2 gear, as I have no forward movement when in D. Two shops have both told me that repairs to the 1-2 gears and or a tranny replacement would be between $3000-5000.00. I have ready many, many troubleshooting posts on the Planet, and I know that it may very well be a solenoid (or several), but it was our decision to just move on (new vehicle already purchased) as my vehicle needs have changed, and my project focus as shifted to my Willys CJ2-a

    This was a good rig for us, while it lasted, and literally never left me stranded even with a sick tranny. I'm going to post it up for sale, whole, and if not sold whole, will probably pull parts off and sell piece by piece.

    thanks to all for your input over the 3 years or so that we enjoyed Cabby.

    New guy, I enjoyed reading your post and all the updates!

    I just picked up a 2000 trooper and this thread gave me a lot of ideas!

    Thanks! Hope you enjoy your trooper. We sure did. I wish it had lasted a bit longer, but until the tranny (a known culprit) failed, it literally had zero issues. Even with a sick tranny, it never left me stranded.

    Hey BIGdaddy...your thread lives on, as I'm following in your footsteps with my '02 Trooper build. Hoping, as all of us with automatics do, that it lasts a long time...!
