    Condensation in my 50

    Hey everyone i know there's a thread already on here about this and I don't know where to put this. I just bought a 50 off of a friend of mine for a 100 bucks. It's an off brand bar and it has moisture in it. How do i take the cover off to dry out or what do i need to do take off and what do I really need to take off of it for it to dry? What should i do to reseal it when i put everything back on it? Thanks

    Take off all those little Allen head bolts and dry it out. Reseal with silicone.

    I'm too lazy to do that to my foggy rigid, and it only has 4 screws!

    Not sure it's great for it, but I've been running my rigid with moisture in it for like 2 years. Just too lazy.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
