You can even get a 30 day free trial of Prime.
I still find Rock Auto or Advance with a code cheaper for most things though. Can't beat 2 day shipping though, and Amazon video is pretty decent!

Found out my muffler is breaking apart. lol Now to think about how I want to do my exhaust.. Probably route it to before the rear tire. And since I'm cheap probably just slap a glasspack on it.

The RockAuto part is still $5 more, plus shipping, with only a 30-day warranty. Believe me, I weighed the option.

Oh I'm not saying you're wrong, I was talking more in a general kind of way.

This thread has a good step by step with pictures.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/c...moval-1228233/

I resoldered a couple of the pins that probably didnt need it, only the one pin circled in that thread is for the coolant sensor bad issue its the one the pink wire on the harness hooks up to on the VIC unit.

If you can see any other pins that look like the solder is cracking might as well add a small amount of solder to them before putting it all back together so you dont have to do it again.

The whole job took an hour or less.

Went to flash an updated tune to it via SCT and ended up with what seems to be a stone dead PCM. Waiting for SCT tech support (which is minimal over the weekend) to send me a recovery file to try to get the PCM out of limbo in hopes that it's not just fried. So now I'm stuck with a dead ZJ for possibly a few days

How much for the 31's?

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys a Jeep. And I ain't ever seen a sad person in a Jeep!!

Took the radar detector out of it and put it in the new wj. No need for it since I put the lift on. I really wish the wj had 16" wheels so I can put the Duratracs off the niner on it and get 32's for the niner.
