Got her prepared to tow next weekend. Checked everything out and she's ready to go. Pulling the father in laws toy hauler to move to our new house. Thinking about throwing the tow tune on from the superchips. Worth it or no? 91 performance has been on for a while now.

Replaced my VIC with a working one. After replacing a brake light bulb and filling my washer fluid it's happy.

Nice! Mine is gutless with these tires. Need gears BAD! I have an idling issue now as well. It will just cut out occasionally while driving too. I wanna take my throttle bottle apart, clean it, and check to see if my plenum may be going out

Went to pick a part today. First time being to a junkyard. My father almost got run over by a forklift before i pulled him out of the way, he was facing the other way looking at a tire.
Surprised i saw snowflakes there. Thought those were popular and well sought out. Also there were a lot of Laredos, a few limiteds, mostly 94-96. Only saw one niner but it was in good shape.
Went looking for a stereo w/ infinity gold system but no luck. Did get a rear windsheild washer cap, headlight + turning signal assembly (drivers side), antenna + cup holder for jetta (my current DD, sisters car), and horns for my brothers accord.
Jeep is mine once its finished.
Got a question for you guys. As far as I know the last tune up on this jeep was at 170k or so miles. Not sure. It has 203k miles and its sat for ~2 years. Think im going to keep her stock height but wondering whether I should get kolaks nice tune up kit (cost around 260?) or a nice 3" magnaflow kit from kolak. Tune up obviously is better for the car but im wondering whether its really necessary or not. Thanks. 95 Laredo w/ a 5.2

I changed my oil, and tightened up the back-hatch latch to calm the bumpy-road-banging from back there.. Also, I looked for my Crankshaft Position Sensor. I have the part ready to put in, but I don't know where the old one is. Its supposed to be on the left side of the trans bell-housing, and connect to the fuel rail, but I can't see any of this. I need a brighter flashlight and a lift so I can crawl under it more easily. I also made my first thread for her on the Forum! Merica.

Colorado is a beautiful state, it's been a while since I was there, but still have many good memories!! I caught my first Rainbow Trout in the Rio Grande!

as nothing to do with the fuel rail. Its bolted to the top of the transmission right where it bolts to the engine block. Lay under the jeep on the drivers side. Look between the front driveshaft and the transmission again where the tranny bolts to the engine. You will see it.
