Button is still there, but instead of pushing a button sideways, you push down on the entire thing.

I'll explain it better later, right now im too tired to think straight.

Thats kinda like the shift knob on my DD.

Of course in a 3 pedal car it makes sense to have coms control on the shifter.

Went to the junkyard today with a good bit of success being that they had 11 ZJs, though wasn't going for anything major, I got-

Fuel door because the spring in mine was broken

Lock actuator since my drivers door auto lock didn't work, took it apart and cleaned it pre-install

Fuse panel cover since mine has been missing since I got the Jeep

Floor mats, also missing

Center console lid because mine was cracked/cut

Found an intact owners manual which is mostly useless since I have an FSM, but still nice to have

Handful of bolts, screws, fuses and relays just to have 'em

A bunch of panel clips to replace the ones I will likely break taking the panel off to do the lock

Though I totally forgot to get a couple of side marker housings, mine have started taking on water, also forgot to grab an XJ shifter to replace the enormous ZJ shifter, but now might try something like the guys above did!

Got halfway through pulling a hood release cable and handle but decided I liked the handle I rigged up more.

Also found as couple of completely clear and UN-yellow headlight housings for my old lady's Honda CRV which has ugly yellowed ones.


Not a shabby score, and a nice cool cloudy yet dry day to spend in the JY!

Rescued her from disuse and abandonment. Brought home our '98 5.2 Limited with 88k miles on her. Grey with black interior. Couple of minor dings and dents but otherwise in great shape. She joins our '89 Waggy in the stable. Can't wait to tinker away!

Fixed the "bad coolant sensor" solder on the VIC!! Also decided to prime paint the lower form on the tailgate and clean up the plastic trim. It's getting there.

Installed the trim piece back onto the liftgate after it sitting in the garage for a couple months since I adjusted the threaded rod and fixed the door sensor in the latch

Dropped it of to get the all of the brakelines and brakehoses replaced.
Nice to know that the lines wont explode when i really need them. (one line was so bad that it fell apart when the mechanic touched it)

Could have done it my self but didnt feel like it + i am allergic to brakefluid, my hands swell up and start to itch like **** even if i get one drop on them.

This wasn't today but yesterday:

A buddy and I went to a local Honda/Kawasaki dealer to inquire about various bikes. Finding their inventory limited, we decided to drive to Dallas, roughly 35 miles away, to visit a larger Honda dealer. I suggested we take his car, and even tried to start my 240 (which isn't insured) but that had some problems, so I foolishly made the decision to drive the Jeep the 35 miles on the highway from Arlington to this dealership.

Within 10 miles, death wobble had set in. I make it up and around another 5 miles or so between bouts of death wobble before it starts making a loud clicking noise. At this point I stopped on the shoulder to try and diagnose- I thought a wheel was gonna tear off or something. All 4 wheels were completely solid and torqued down to spec, though, so I carefully carried on. The wobble refuses to go away, so finally I take the first exit available against all the local construction that could get me to the destination. Drove the next 20 miles (the route was several miles longer via city roads than over the highway) at city speeds and it was fine. Checked out the bikes, I'm strongly considering buying a 250cc CBR for some fuel savings. (Hand-calculated my fuel economy in the ZJ by the way, yesterday: 13.8mpg. Not quite as bad as the overhead would have me believe) Tried driving on the highway a short distance, since the steering damper had a chance to cool down. Nope, immediate wobble. Drove the whole way home on city streets, since it was around 6 when we left the dealership and street traffic was doable. Screw driving into the sun though. Couldn't see a damn thing. Accidentally took Royal instead of Walnut Hill, a couple streets over, so I probably ended up doing about 50 miles back home instead of 35.

Anyway, the long and short is my swaybar links and track bar are totaled. Now it makes that click whenever I corner. So when my paycheck comes in I'm gonna go ahead and order all the front end stuff I need.

My track bar bracket came lose in my front end snd was clunking pretty bad. So I tightened that up as much as possible.
Also did the rear brake pads. Hopefully the last 20 bucks I put in the tirdy5
