No its a 3.5" front rear swap with RE coils. 32" tires. No rubs, but need bumpstops. 2" bb requires cutting for 32's.

Cool, I figured it looked bigger, just reading your profile information said BB so I had to ask.

Back Hatch Glass Wouldn't Lock!

So today I popped my back hatch glass open to place some items in the rear and the glass hatch lock wouldn't release to allow me to close the glass.

So, looking around I saw that there were only a few (about 10) phillips screws holding the back plastic moulding on the hatch, so I removed those so that I could see the actuator better. I used some silicone spray to lube up the mechanism and voila! Works like a charm.

The whole "repair" took about 15 minutes and it's operating just like new!

I love it when a repair goes well. Albeit it was simple, it still restores confidence that I can fix most of the issues I run into with it.

Well everyone knows I had my little problem this afternoon with the hood. Made an emergency run to pick a part. Got new hood. Hood hinges. Upper rad support and then driver door lock. Started the repairs off by welding te cracked driver door were the latch bolts. Got the new latch in. Just need to fix the sagging door. I remember a while back a fix to it but can't find it. Anyone? Then I moved to the upper rad support. Now I have a straight one. Hood hinges. Let me tell you what. Even if your hands are moderately sized that's a pain in the a***. But we are all good for school in the morning. Dad told me go to advanced and get some good pins so I have the extra safety for the hood.

Drove it to the parts store to get gaskets and junk for an '02 Frontier. Spent the rest of the day with the jeep playing tunes while wrenching on the Nissan. Frontier is now fixed, major PITA to work on.

For the first time there isn't a thing I need to repair on the jeep. Damn good feeling. The 4" IRO SA lift is stiff as balls, but i think i just need to air down the BFGs or go to a larger tire.

Time to break some ****.

I saw those pics. Knowing that you are ok and the Jeep is fine I have to admit I did laugh because it looked pretty silly. Probably all those violent cartoon when growing up.

Took a giant leap and attempted the capacitor swap in the ECU after experiencing all of the symptoms previously mentioned.

1 1/2 hrs later, fingers crossed ...(wait for it) fired right up! Whew!

Don't want to do it again, but good to know I could if I had to.
