Thanks. That's what I was hoping for. I know why it goes to defrost, but I was a little worried that the leak could be behind the dash.

Today it's the rear wheels, rear brakes and e-brake. The last two old trucks I bought had the e-brake completely disabled (as in no cable). At least this one looks like everything's there, just needs to be fixed. Then I have to swap the 1 7/8" ball for a 2" one, and fix some broken welds on the trailer. Then I can look at the vacuum issue.

After market parts for my 2011 Overland

So I've recently purchased a new/used Overland and I was looking for performance parts. So far I found a Borla Cat-back exhaust and the Air intake. Is that the best exhaust system to go with? I also have been thinking about going with those new black aluminum wheels that come with the GC Altitude. What do you guys think about those rims? My Overland is Black so I'm not sure to stay with chrome or go dark.

Does anyone know where I might find the dimensions for the SRT-8 hood? I would love to put that bad boy on my Overland. LOL
Also I have a 99 GC limited for sale if anyone is looking for one. It has 200K miles on it.

You probably have a WK2 if youre looking at swapping a SRT8 hood. This is the ZJ section for 93-98 Grand Cherokees. Google the year of your GC and youll find the associated alpha code. To answer, the Altitude rims look cool but are probably an arm and a leg and not available used yet unless someone upgraded.

If you ever drop your fuel tank for whatever reason, remember to reconnect the gas filler tube before you go get gas.

Tried putting some 134a in this afternoon and nothing doing. Don't know what the issue is. Put the hose on like I always do and it would not suck it in. The engine would cycle like the AC was kicking on and off the compressor wasn't turning??? Never had this issue before. Anyone have any tips? Bad recharge hose? Don't think that's it. Could something be clogged?

Last time that happened to me, the a/c clutch had gone out.
