It gets easier after a few beers and the egging on of friends.

Plus the old carpet reeking to all hell didnt make the decision any harder.

The worst part is actually getting the carpet out, after that its all prep work.

The transfer case. Check the tires for abnormal wear. I can try to get pictures of my tires if you want to know what the tires shouldn't look like.

Took out my carpet to let it dry out. I hung it up on my back deck and it had a solid stream of water coming off of it for at least 5 minutes. I have no idea where the water is getting in, but its the most wet right where the hvac comes out under the passenger seat. Is there any possible way water would get in the system?

Your drain is clogged..;/ I used an air compressor and blew out all the hvac lines stopped the leaking for me. But Ive also heard of windshield seals and a number of various cause just have to investigate. On another note I like the remove before flight keychain. You a crewchief?

gonna pull the yoke and seal this weekend and see what the deal is. i did not see any wear lines on the yoke when i had it off and was cleaning it up. maybe it snagged the new seal and i didnt catch it, i dunno

That and getting a new windshield keeps my floor dry now. I thought it was my AC drain so I followed the video only to find it wasn't clogged. I attempted to re-seal the windshield around the edges with silicone to no avail. I eventually bit the bullet and paid for a new windshield. No more leaks.

Got around to doing my upper rear control arms, were a bit more annoying than the lowers. Unfortunately while spending time under her I noticed my oil leak seems to have increased. It's dripping from the bell housing but idk if it could be coming from my valve cover (need to eventually replace that gasket with a felpro). The more peculiar problem is coolant leak right above my radiator fan pulley but below where the upper rad hose meats the block.

Still no leaks in my drive to work today... shop owner said to pull it in & they'll put it up & the hoist & try to point out what they think they saw but honestly, I'm startin to really think they're full of pooooop. Doesn't look like my elec. WJ fan is going to arrive before Saturday, so I guess that mod is another week out.

Anyone know any info on this 11 blade plastic fan? Pulled it from a 98 5.2 limited at the junkyard.
Is this the "max cooling" option back in the day?

While I'm no fan of Quadratrac (on my 2nd ZJ with it) it can always be swapped for NP242 SelecTrac... something I may move from theory to reality one day.

The transfer case check was a good recommendation. Otherwise, no worries about that Magnum 8 at all, so long as it's had very regular oil changes. The 4.0L I6 is a bullet proof motor but having owned 3 Jeeps with em (2 XJs & my previous ZJ), once I went 318 with my current ZJ nearly a decade ago now, I'd NEVER go back. It's just mated better to a ZJ. I6 was a great motor in a XJ but honestly, was kinda sluggish in my former ZJ, ESPECIALLY on hills. The MPG difference is maybe 2-3MPG lost, max; well worth it, IMO. Best of luck & hope you land it for a great buy!

Well, I pulled it back into the shop this morning, engine bone dry as its been for a week+ now, to see what the hell they're referring to with a leaking H2O pump. The mechanic & I studied it & found some green residue on the bottom of the pump housing on each side of the weep hole, despite no active leak. He thinks that "rubber seals" inside the pump may have temporarily stopped the leak but recommends replacing it for cheap insurance (not cheap on my time tho ). Seeing that, I'm inclined to agree with him & since I'm installing an e-Fan at the same time, I should swap the belt (glazed a bit but not cracked...again cheap insurance) & swap the thermostat out for a 180* to assist the e-fan a bit. Prolly all good ideas, just $$ $$ & more $$ spent. Can't wait til this is all over with.

I think I'm still gonna halve the work & go ahead & do the rear brakes & cold air intake tomorrow... reminds me, I gotta clean that K&N with the K&N cleaner/oil, probably tonight! Then, pump & fan next week, since the damn fan isn't expected to arrive til the end of Next week, despite costing $20 to ship
I'll probably also tackle that set-screw swap or washer bulk-up that goes thru the PCM's heat shield cover behind the overflow tank. 30min. job, max & if it prevents further driveway die out, it'll be well worth it. Better than being stranded or replacing a PCM.

A Jeep's work's never done, as we all know.

Seems like it could be a lot of wire exposure once it's bedlined.

Most of the wires that are on the floor are for the powered seats. But they are for the most part kept out of the way from being damaged. They run along the metal seat brackets. All the other wires were easily move out of the way and ziptied to a safe spot.
