Bad auto dimming mirror and good auto dimming mirror.


Pop of the old one.


Has 4 wires, 2 for heat and 2 for auto dimming.


Top one is auto dimming and heat, lower one only has heat.


It is cheaper to buy the complete mirror assembly than just the glass part.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

6 fouled plugs

Jeep was running like crap had the same symptoms as a misfire i just had fixed by one bad plug. Went and bought a whole set of plugs . Upon removing them i discovered they were all black. Threads all gunked up. Read the code and got a code that said running lean p0171 i think. My buddy said that's o2. I had just had my upstream sender replaced at the smog shop two weeks ago. I unplugged the sensor and plug it back in. Cleared the code and problem solved. Drove around for a while and code hasn't come back. Stupid plug.

Got a lot of little things done on my jeep today, mainly relocating the horns and added 2 more, dam they are loud!!

Tomorrow is the big day, should be receiving my new Griffin radiator and Warn 9.5xp-s winch.

This winch is 6.0 HP, has 100 feet of synthetic rope, 9,500 pounds of pulling capacity with fast line speeds and has extreme-duty sealing for superior water resistance.

The Griffin radiator is 30% better cooling than the stock radiator.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Found a niner in a used car lot. It was looking pretty sad. The spare was on the front left and it was flat, center console lid was broken off, there was a mystery switch above the hand brake. I was prepared to pay $2500 for it and ask forgiveness from my wife later... Price was $5600. I offered to fix it up for $1000 so he could actually sell it at that price. He declined. I told him I would be back in three months.

My ZJ has never been stuck, it was just taking a break from being so awesome!

If you don't have a full size rack to put it on, you will likely have a rough time with the hammer as you just can't get a good swing. I took mine down to the local yocal and $20 & 10 mins later it was done. (that was after a day and a half, broken ball joint separator, bruised shoulder & deflated ego!)

That's exactly it, super hard to get a good swing with the swaybar and everything else down there.

I looked it up and it was $287. Where did you find it for $230
I replaced mine about a year ago, but I would like to know who has cheaper OM parts.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

I'd like to know as well. Are the only source for the auto-dim the OEM parts from dealership?

Thanks for the above pics, i had read about the discoloration but thats the first photo's i'v seen.

While i have your attention. Would my 98 Laredo have the harness for the autodim and heat function? I'd love to add this feature..

I didn't check to see if they had the part, but from personal experience I'd say 123autoparts.com has the cheapest OEM parts... My timing cover and kit were about $40 less there than at rock auto.

On a 98 like yours I believe the wires are there for the auto dimming mirrors.
May have even had a dimming mirror at one time and someone replaced it, that's what I did until getting the new auto dimming ones.

This is where I found them for $287.

It showed up this morning, 85 pounds of pure beauty, and the color even matches my jeep.
Planning on doing a custom stealth mount once I finish up a few other things.


This adds 6 HP more to my jeep, well kind of.

Now I'm waiting for the Griffin radiator to arrive this evening.
