Also, IIRC, the thread size is 3/8"x16.
Dang it, I can't do that. I broke the old thread of the shifter when I put the new shifter nob on about 2 years ago. Thx though

Had the new rubber seal installed in the windshield, installed the "Jeep" graphic on the side, and installed my door edge guards. This morning when it was 18 deg. I adjusted the fast idle to about 1400 RPM.

I found some Lexan today..ok back to happy mood

Took me most of the day to make the new window, and install then totally redo the adjustment on the hard top.
I had to rework my spreaders, and since the person I was trying to get their junk spreaders kinda flaked on me I just repaired mine till I redo my cage.

I am finally happy.


anyway enough hot air...

I notice a lot of pics of aftermarket cold air intakes. A facebook friend of mine recently put a new CAI on his Jeep and raves about it. From some of the research I've done, it doesn't seem to really make a huge difference in performance. I'm in Colorado and my Jeep rarely gets wet, anyone care to chime in about CAIs good or bad?

I have the 2.5L in mine, and added a CAI to see if it helped w/ hp. It seems to have helped somewhat, but maybe that's the $250 I spent telling me that it helps.

One of the pictures is mine. If I could go back and get my stock intake, I would, but my dad unknowingly threw it out. It sounds cool, but it sucks other than that. It does not help with horsepower. The only thing is does is suck in more water. The stock intake let's more than enough air into the motor, so a CAI is not justifiable one bit. CAI and TB spacers are junk and a waste of money.

I would imagine anything that lets it breath better should be helpful. I did notice a good difference in top end power when i upgraded my muffler from stock to an excelerator (flowmaster knockoff) really made a big difference in being able to sustain speed on the highway, but not nearly as much as 4.88 gears did!

$250!!! I built mine for $30. That is the worst upgrade you could have ever got for $250. Do some research, you will find out from the experts that CAI on a Jeep is a huge waste of money and actually lets in more dirt and water than stock intake.

Okay, I looked it up and it was $190, but yeah, tell me about it. I was a "newbie" when I did it. I listened to a guy who said it would make a world of difference. It didn't. I didn't know about the forum then either. Lessons learned I guess. Wish I had that $190 back, it could help fund a new rear bumper.

Yea true, but the air already breathes just fine, so the CAI doesn't make it breathe better. I have a magnaflow exhaust on mine, it made a huge difference, but my cat was clogged before.

The last 2 days I have replaced a blown out slave cylinder, rebuilt the exhaust, replaced the valve cover gasket, sanded and painted the cover with engine enamel, changed the oil and oil filter, sanded and undercoated the gas tank, undercoated above the tranny/transfer case, replaced the rear driveshaft seal, and I think that is it.

Tomorrow I plan on replacing all the spark plugs and wires, changing the fan belt, and welding up the broken exhaust mounts.

And none of this would be possible without the works of some Bud. Or a lot of Buds

Installed a K & N FIPK kit on the 4.0-
throttle response is better!!
Noticed the intake tube on the K & N looks
like an expansion chamber for a two stroke...
hmm tuned???

Over the past two days: took off the rusty lights, used a wire wheel to knock the rust off back to chrome, and painted them with a Rustoleum textured black.
