Left lights on by accident must have bumped the lights out of automatic mode killed the battery. But it seems to run really well now? Did i reset the computer somehow?

New page should have a wheeling pic

Installed my new starter today, no more staying engaged in the flexplate. Saw a listing for a set of 15 inch aluminum grizzly wheels (xj sport, wrangler, early tj) and contacted the seller to find out he had just shook hands on a deal earlier that afternoon. Never fails .... day late and a dollar short!!

Full tune up on the ZJ with new plugs, wires, rotor, and rotor cap. Changed the oil and cleaned the throttle body/IAC plug. Tomorrow is tires!

Waited yet another day for my lift kit and parts to arrive from Iron Rock Offraod......Turns out after I gave them my credit card number, they all ran off to Moab with out putting anything into a box and mailing it off!! WTF!!! Thanks guys, guess I will be waiting another month to receive my stuff. Seriously not happy about the transaction to this point.

Yup. When the battery is disconnected, or gets down past a certain level, the PCM loses stored engine parameters. It is now learning how the Jeep needs to run, so in theory if you go easy on it, it will tune for better efficiency. In theory...

I wonder if i was that guy. You in TN?

I painted a set of craigslist wheels ($50, thank you very much) and put 'em on. I dig a Silver ZJ with black rims.

They've still got folks working - you'll get your stuff, don't worry.

Remember, modification parts are mostly custom, especially for Grand Cherokees. There's not enough of a market for these vendors to have unlimited stock. A lot of stuff needs to be built to order.

Not sure of the name brand, but semi gloss high heat engine paint in a rattle can. Man, honestly, it looks alot better in the picture but it works for what I want. More prep would've helped, i'm just not that patient.
