Do you remember where that was? I'd rather do that than $100+ on a new starter when the motor is fine.

Drove it back from a weekend of camping in the Adirondacks yesterday.

Pulled my front bumper off and painted the metal bumper black. I am waiting to see how it looks with my KOR radiator support and shackles on before I decide if I'm gonna cut my splash guards and leave it off. Right now it's sitting til I get a new radiator. I need to do my tranny cooler lines too as they're leaking, but I can't find on this website if this radiator has the factory type cooler in tank :
http://radiatorexpress.com/product.a...aia_id=1182114
If not, I need to know cause I'll have to order a larger external cooler and some other things. I've seen this radiator recommended on here before, can anyone help me out?

Never mind called the number since the website support was hard to figure out and ya it does have the in tank cooler like the factory radiator. But it's on back order. He said the aluminum ones are always high demand cause no one wants the plastic tank radiators anymore lol. But they should have more in the beginning of October. So I'm case anyone else wondered about that And let's be honest us zj guys always have other things to it that need to be done in the meantime(I'll finish up my hitch and gas tank skid this weekend hopefully instead)

Maybe a dumb question but have you checked/cleaned up your batt. Terminals? Maybe the starter connections too.

This has been my prob before.

Battery terminals were done not to long ago. I can hear the solenoid click but I crawl under it to check the starter connections.

Also labelled the Niner fan override switch. Not that anyone else drives it.... LOL
That's a great place !

Ordered a new unibody bushing end, new bushings, and mounting bolt from IRO so I can get my jeep back on the road.

Yesterday, straightened out the fender/door damage, and bought new JY rocker plastic to cover up the damage there for now. Today, I ordered front shocks, a double shear conversion, and 4 new control arm bushings. Meeting a guy later about a d30. Should have the jeep fixed and driving by Friday.

Don't even get me started on the PCM

More worried about my front diff going ping. it's making a metallic rattle when I do tight corners now, shoulda replaced the transfer case about uhh, 40,000 miles ago?

Can I just disconnect the front prop? what will it be like RWD only in snow or mud with road tyres?

Yeh you can pull the front DS. 4.0 doesn't have enough kick to break the rear end free anyway!
