Thanks for the compliment. Motor mounts are new with motor, including the trans. Less then 10k on them.

Finally got some goodies in by the UPS guy. I am going to for just a second. I feel this is pathetic for 1, compared to all other models at least from what I have searched today, especially the XJ version is KILLER and needs to have much more added! I know you guys have more out there that you want to add on to this list!!!!

**INTERIOR MODS**

-------------------------------------------------------------


Moving on for later this week, I will be starting a build thread, very detailed and all the write-ups out the butt. I am very much a (****)/WOOD, when it comes to adding modification to vehicles and it needs to be as close to factory style form as POSSIBLE. So, I will begin hopefully tomorrow, and big plans as I want to make an EXPEDITION ZJ out of it/DD as for $$$$ is not an issue, but TIME is! So, maybe someone can build it for me, hahahahhaa My UGLY MUG will also be there for your pleasure........


I'm done

Just installed the new NSS I bought last year when the issue 1st popped up then didn't happen again till twice this week. 1st no start I just shifted through to 2nd & back to N & it started. Then yesterday it wouldn't start till I held ignition on & hit a "sweet spot" in N. Started okay today to get it into my garage but it was time to install the new part.

works great and is loud as no other inside the jeep lol
Too bad you took out the blower motor, or you could use the A/C to make cold intake air, for those times when you need a little extra power.....

Good thing it's not a DD. That's gotta be LOUD.

actually thought about leaving the blower motor in and letting it suck through the vents... but liked the tunnel opening to put a filter in cause its gonna get dusty and dirty in the floor board and dont need to suck up any crap!

Any way you can post a video of how loud it is? I've thought about soing this, but i'm pretty sure i'd hate to have it that loud in my cab
