Found out that the *** wipes at 4wheelparts don't know how to honor a deal when they mess up, so instead of getting my 4 bfg 31's for 162 bucks shipped, I get a refund and a cancelled order. Dammit

Went to the local JY looking for a few parts for my ZJ. Ask the lady at the counter it they had any 93-98 GC and she said they only have one, a 98. Which was already picked through. Hardly a shell left. Walked to the other side of the lot to where the trucks were and there were 4 more ZJs a 99 Cherokee and a grand wagoneer. Been looking for a trailer hitch and both the Cherokee and the GW both had one. Any idea if one of these will fit my ZJ? They only want 35 bones for the hitch so I figured I would ask. Going to take some measurements just in case and go back on Saturday.

What state are you in. I'm pretty sure here( California) law is they have to sell a product for what it's marked at. Technically they made the deal when they took your money. That's like someone saying $5000 for a new car and take your money and then are like oh it's $50k so here's your money back. I dunno, atleast you got your money back. I never shop 4 wheelparts.

yep 4.0 5spd and loving it the dodge dakota alternator swaps on but you need to change the pulley from a 7 rib to 6 rib for the 4.0 the 5.2 alternators work on a 4.0 as well but again you have to change the pulley its pretty simple i just hammered a screwdriver in it lmao making sure not to bend anything of course but i know dodge dakota,ram,ram vans, anything pretty much mopar and have a 5.2,5.9 and i think it was a 3.9 6 cylinder? if it has the same same wiring it will work even if the pulley is not a 6 rib u can easily pull it off. also the 5.9 grand cherokee alternator if im correct is 150 amps and will work for the 4.0 wish i could have found one of those.

I'm in Alabama. I was extremely pissed off when they did that, they said it was a pricing error(they had 31x10.5x15 BFG A/T KO's for $52.99 each). I expressed my displeasure via the customer service line, saying that with every other transaction i have made online, the funds are not deducted until the item is verified instock and ready to ship. I asked why was the money removed from my account if you had no product to ship? after almost an hour of speaking with a supervisor i am now getting my refund plus 10% so instead of $162 i get $178, and my inbox is flooded with coupons and BS to try to win me back over. I used to never shop 4 wheelparts, but the link to the cheapo tires got posted and i jumped on it.

Washed both my ZJ's, took pictures, tried to post them and I guess my camera pictures are too large to post. So I have to resize them and then post them again. Anyone interested in buying another ZJ??? Thinking of selling my black one.

That's awesome. I know what I'm doing later, lol. Alternators are on 15 dollars at my local pick and pull so I will be looking for the best condition just in case. Thanks for the info.

I attempted the "zip tie fix" on the connectors on my PCM. I think you're supposed to remove the coolant reservoir for easy access. Alls I's gots to say is my hands hurt from squeezing them into there to get the zip ties into place. Also, I didn't have any "jumbo" zip ties so I had to put 3 shorter ones together for each connector. Talk about riggin' it to the max. I can't even rig it right... :crap:

Isn't the overflow bottle or whatever it's called on that side? Maybe the line leaking. I guess the appropriate question: where exactly under the jeep is it leaking, the front grill area, back by the passenger wheel?
