if i have time to swing by the jeep tom i will... if you daily drive it then you certainly wont want this... but with the exhaust being loud and the windows down the loudest first is the first initial blip and suck...

Okay cool to hear, yeah I doubt I will do this, but my exhaust is already loud, so it may not make a huge difference

the noise isnt a factor to me... this was the best way in my eyes to keep out mud and water since i mostly play in deep mud, also i see this as a good way to keep from sucking in a lot of dust and dirt in the dry

I installed my new radiator finally. And new tranny cooler lines. Only to find out that the quick connects at the transmission were leaking bad too(should have ordered them when I got my lines as insurance for $5 a piece). So took those out and to the parts stores and no one had any in Stock. So tomorrow morning I'll get those, throw them in in the afternoon and hook up my tranny lines and get my antifreeze and trans fluid back up to full levels. And hopefully that is the last of my leaks for a good long while!

Went back to the junkyard for some more...junk

Found some of the ash trays for the back doors, a back passenger door window switch, and a few other little parts like panel clips and stuff.

Today. On this October thirtieth, the devils night, I have made the dead rise back to life!

She liiiiiiiives!!! I've got one of those **** eating grins right now. Guy came to look at it and brought a PCM, swapped in the runners battery and fired up on the first try!! Two months sitting and I was right the whole time!

Installed the "smoked" headlights... I think they look waaay better than the stock ones... Engine oil change with Mobil 1 10w30 Full Synthetic and flushed cooling system for the third and last time... It was kinda nasty the first couple of flushes... Checked front/rear diff. fluids, everything still looks good... Still need to get the auxiliary trans. cooler connected and the new power steering pump installed... Not enough time in a day to get everything, done...

Bootleg vehicle?

This was on my 97, started and stalled. If i held my foot on the gas it ran but dumped so much fuel i could smell the raw gas in the exhaust. As soon as i let off the gas it would die. Plugged the switch back in and it ran perfectly again.
