Probably the best wiring link I've found so far. There's different pin outs depending on the year yj. I pulled all 96 stuff from the xj, but everything 91-96 on the xj should be the same.

Netting

I am going to the Jeep Jamboree in Big Bear with my daughter. # days of camping and wheeling. I took out the rear seat to make room to load up all our gear and my brother-in-law shows up to ask to borrow my skill saw.

I went to look for it and realized I had one of those stretchy webbed cargo net things from my wife's old 2000 Ford Windstar. It used to hook into the back area to keep cargo from rolling around.

Turns out, its a perfect fit between the roll cage arms behind the front seat. A few zip ties later, and I have a cargo net divider.

If you can find one in the pick a part etc. not a bad use for it.

You can find those that are two layer, meaning they have a storage area thing. That make sense? That would be perfect.

These cargo nets can be found in some of the Grand Cherokees as well. I have one from a '95 that I have used to keep my cargo in place in my YJ when I don't have my back seat in.

I don't have a way to load pics, but I used an old cargo net from a HMMWV to make a dog net in the back. It has 1" nylon that intersects every 6". I don't have a sewing machine, but i do have a drill and 1/4" impact that will drive some stainless selftappers through the intersection points and into the rollbar very nicely. I made 1 for each side window and am going to make one for the back that will utilize the stock door stop brackets (the little metal bar that slides through the nylon loop) to secure it to the floor or the rear gate. This way I can use some nylon straps with a hooked buckle to attach it and pull it tight. 4 of those at the floor, and 4 more up each side should hold it just fine.

I am sorry you live in a salvage yard and have a third grade education. That is no reason to be an *** to people. We have a place that specializes in Jeeps and you would think they guy has to **** out each and every part he sells. He tried to sell me a set of 1995 full doors for 1000 dollars. I'd rather pay a little more for a new part with a warrantee. 4WD and O'reilly Auto parts treat me well and give me fair prices. Plus both places have ALWAYS honored their warrantees.
!1000 holy i picked my full doors up for 15 buck on a yard sale needs some tlc but not bad missing door pins, a corner window and a door panel

Now that's a great idea! The only Pull-a-Part near me has no Jeeps, ever, but they have 3-4 hundred minivans, mostly Ford Windstars. I'm gonna look for some of those nets for several different things. Thanks!

That's a great idea! I have the same issue where I live. The only Jeeps that are in my local salvage yards are (occasionally) old CJ5's, XJ's and ZJ's, and one MJ.

There are several junkyard upgrades for our YJ's. Look at what you want to upgrade then use the search feature to find write-ups on options.
Just curious about the 4.0 TB. If you install one on a 2.5 do you need to change the cam or do any other mods to it?

I havent personaly done it but I know theres a right up somewhere.
I think you have to change the idle controll thing from the 2.5 over to the 4.0 throttle boddy.

Is there a better sending unit I can use that is less likely to screw up? Different tank altogether perhaps?
New here,,, reading some of the comments on the fuel tanks,,,

I did this modification on mine a few weeks ago 15-gallon to a 20-gallon tank, I had a quarter of a tank and topped the tank off with 14.2 more gallons. Drove over 140 miles before the gauge moved off full.

Hers the link for the modification.
