Got some 4x2 fog lights from Walmart today. Going to wire them in with two relays to come on with the reverse lights. As well as have a switch to be able to have them on without the reverse lights if I want them for like setting up something behind me. As well as a switch if I don't want them on withy the other reverse lights.

Made an oil catch to keep the intake clean. Air line filter in between the PCV line to the intake. Not final but this is the only place it would fit. Going to have to fab a crazy bracket.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any magazines with zjs in them. I'm kinda tired of reading about brand new jks worth more than 10 of our zjs. Don't get me wrong there cool but I want to see rigs for the more average person.

JK's are not cool. The earlier ones would overheat the trans and set it on fire. I have seen some lifted JK's that look cool but most people who own them that I have come across are not cool. They are huge, underpowered boxes. I love the old CJ's. Just my 2 C.

Replaced the PCM, then drove her out to Little Elm, 55 miles away, through construction and traffic, and bought 5 Moabs with practically new tires for just $300.



They all fit in the back. Now I'm ordering my lift.

Still having some stalling trouble. Any ideas boys?

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

Nice! What tire size!

Stalling, CPS? Maybe loose PCM connection?

I love cjs too. And I have met one guy around here that had a jk, lifted winch mud tires, covered in mud, nicest guy around but he is the only I have met with a jk that was cool.

255/75/R17

And I read something about CPS causing trouble. My issue is (on the new PCM and the old one) I'll be driving along and it'll stutter or completely stall out while I'm moving. For that matter, it doesn't like to decide what gear to put the tranny in between 20 and 35mph while accelerating. This seems to happen, regardless of whether the connections are snugged up with zip ties. (And I mean snugged up. Like 2 65lb zipties on each plug, pulled as tight as you can get 'em, further tensioned by 2 more running across the rest)

By the by, I ordered adapters for the wheels, but I'm having trouble deciding on a lift. Gonna be running 255/75/17s (~32x10.5), on top of 1.25" adapters pushing them out. I know I'll need to lift it, but how much will keep them from rubbing, without having to trim anything? I've been searching the general internets for this, but I can't find anything definite.
