Is there any good way to pull out the front metal bumper support? Mine kinda got caved in this weekend


Now my passenger side fog is recessed back in the front bumper and looks goofy..

Unplugged my upstream o2 and reset computer. Drove for a while got p0132 code for the unplugged o2 sensor, obviously. No p0171 code though so hopefully I just need a new upstream o2 to fix the p0171 issue. But was also thinking if the o2 sensor is unplugged how could the computer know its running lean without the sensor in and maybe thats why its not throwing the p0171. But it idles smoother and smells rich if anything and not lean. Doesnt hesitate momentarily from a dead stop like it was with the o2 plugged in. Still lacks a little power though.

Then I ripped apart the 231.

All this



just to remove this



Tomorrow Im going to clean it up and reassemble. Hopefully.

I had to do this once......chained the hitch of my zj to my truck (blocking the tires wasn't working to well on my gravel driveway and attached my chain come-along to a tree and the front bumper. It actually pulled pretty straight, I was surprised.

Yeah I have a similar situation.....full insurance for my 93 zj is just as much for my 04 ranger....makes no sense to me...total out the zj...what like 3,000-3,500? Total out my ranger and its over 10,000. You would think they (the insurance company's) would take something like that into consideration.

Got my kolak exhaust installed. Magnaflow high flow cat and fm 70 series.. Love it. Barely hear it inside the jeep but nice rumble at low and high rpms. haven't got on it because of the newly rebuilt trans. Btw is gov pressure solenoid better as oem instead of aftermarket?
