The ZJ isn't being good to me today. After the Rotor melted apart, I replaced it with another. Ran fine. Then died again. Now I believe the CPS is the issue. When does it ever end....

(About 32") the one thing I never see mentioned is if they will clear with stock arms and a tiny bit of trimming.

It's always "here's a lift with the tire size you're kind of looking for. It looks nice" lol.
Im running a zone 4 inch lift. It only replaced the lower control arms. Running 32s I put washers behind the steering stops. And dont have any rubbing.

Front or both?

-cut out splitting Dynomax muffler, replaced with same size (3") Thrush Welded muffler. Sounds about the same, but has a noticeable growl to it now )
-Changed front and rear diff fluids
-changed transmission filter and fluid
-painted diff covers because Jeep
-replaced broken factory air box (had a hole in the top letting unfiltered air in) with a cone filter. Will build an intake tube and shield for my own "FIPK" pretty much. Lol.
-cleaned IACV

Interesting day for sure.





I haven't welded for months and not with this welder. Not horrible at least.





PCV mod! (Correction, breather mod)

Hey can you tell me more about your PCV mod? You just eliminated the breather altogether? do you have any problems spitting oil into the intake? I need a new breather and grommet, but your mod looks cheaper. I haven't found a lot of info on this subject for the 318. Thanks!

Actually now that I think about it, that's the breather mod then. I didn't pay much attention, I just threw it together. I broke the 90* bend off the breather so I used the rubber 90* bend. I just took a uni-bit and put a hole in the air hat big enough to screw in a threaded nipple fitting and a bit of bulk vacuum hose.

I just grabbed whatever I could find. It's the 360 but It's probably the same.
