Ill just take it to work, and jimmy rig it to work for a week or two lol
Edelbrock headers? I thought they only made those for dodges?

On my way out the door. Going to go vacuum the interior and wipe down the interior as well.


Found out what appears my steering box is leaking too. Going to get a Durango box and replace the pitman arm. Any good pitman arms out there, or will an Advance or AutoZone pitman arm be ok????

Same question. If you could find out any info on brand and stuff too, I'd like to have it done but from past experience my local tint shop doesn't know what the word "match" means. They can install quite well but that's it.

Nope, they made some specifically for our Jeeps too.

Long since discontinued and rare though. However I found someone selling a set, and I bought them.

I don't know for sure, I had it done professionally and I just told them to match it. If I had to guess I'd say it's about 20%.

Factory tint is pretty close to 20% on a ZJ.

Hopefully your local laws won't make you remove it! Buddy of mine got pulled over in NC, the cop gave him a citation that said he had to remove it from the front windows and then bring it to the station later to prove he had.

Kinda BS that just because some idiots out there people like us can't do what we wan't as long as its a safe tint,

OT, I had swapped most of my green and tan for 5.9 black and the passenger seat base was shot/wouldn't work so i swapped the seat base off my old Orvis seat to the niner seat, Looking pretty good just still gotta find a headliner, Driver seat, and driver side lower trim, Doing all black on the bottom and tan top, Looks pretty good just still needs cleaning

My wife got a doctors note from her dermatologist saying her skin was sensitive to sunlight. She had to bring that not to the sheriffs station to have her tint exempted. Draw back is that now she's the only only that can legally drive the car. If I was pulled over for tint driving it I would get a ticket. No problems so far though.

I think I am going to replace my steering box with a Durango steering box.

I made a topic about it already, I posted that I couldn't find any threads whether or not the Durango box will work in the 4.0. Doing a search, all the threads I came across was using the Durango box in a V8 ZJ. I guess we will find out if it works.....

So I'll replace the pitman arm and steering box

Why don't you use your current pitman arm? 1993-1998 all zj's use the same steering gear box I believe.
