Could I bridge the fuel pump relay? is it a basic relay?

Outside has been fully detailed, axles and wheel wells painted flat black, engine bay detailed, some performance engine work done, new tranny, 242 transfer case swap, new rear, slotted rotors, new tires, shocks, the list goes on and on. She looks great, runs great, is pretty damn quick and will kick the @ss out when punched out from a stop with no problem. I plan to have it a long time,and keep it looking the way it does for just as long. I have an engine build in the works making roughly 425 horsepower out of a 360 with no blower and no turbo all motor. The 5.9 was a special Jeep $42,000 in 1998 and not a whole lot of them were made and roughly half of them are left. It's got a lot of options not used on any other ZJ of any year, it's not just a bigger motor. With out the 5.9 there would be no SRT today. Would you wheel an SRT? I wouldn't. Just me i know its a Jeep but its not just any Jeep.
I don't get it either but I know not every car guy can get it or think the same. I've seen people since high-school that would get something really nice that was obviously taken care of or something new and then trash the hell out of it. I would never take a vehicle that costs what a new Jeep costs out in the mud. Have you priced new Grand Cherokees lately? I do understand that if everyone thought like me there would be no new Jeeps sold so somebody has to be the first to take it off road. I guess things are different for people on the other side of the poverty line lol.

Installed My Hidden Hitch.
Then I removed D/S door and replace Upper and Lower Pins & Bushings !
I used my Motorcycle Jack & 2 Ratcheting straps ( photo included ) it made it so much easier.
I ground the tops of the pins using a dremel w/ a stone then knocked the pins out using a long punch.

What you've got to realize about Texas is, while 40 degrees doesn't seem cold to most people, not two days ago, it was 90-something outside. When you've spent the last 5 months at 90 or higher, that sudden drop to 40 chills you to the bone. As well, as soon as the temperature drops below about 60 in north Texas, the pressure drops and it brings heavy winds in. I've stood in skivvies in Utah in the dead of winter, well below 0, but the air is still, so it's not terrible. In Texas, it's windy and humid, so you chill faster.

Cut him some slack. How many of you worked on your Jeep in triple digits all summer? And when did your summer end? Ours ended last week.

Woah woah woah. I understand as well as anyone cold is a relative term here. I was stating that too me. That is not. Yes. I worked in 100+ on the jeep before. Iv also worked and washed out turkey barns at 36 degrees to get it done before freezing. I get the sudden drop. Going from a full barn at 86 degrees. To 20. Not bashing him. Stating personal feelings on the subject.
