Washed the mud off so it would not be fallin in my eyes when I removed steerig box (did not help)
found out that you dont need to remove steering brace to remove steering box cuz I have to remove lower rad hose to remove brace
Got a.question for thoes that have installed the grand wagoneer box whats the easiest was to get the 4th hole.acurtlly drilled and do I need to cut this nipple off where the steering wheel rod conects?

I am thinking maybe a leak on a line but I may just break down have someone replace all the lines and I found this thing from a bud called a "ground strap kit" anyone know of that? He says guarantees better MPG and HP + torque.

More grounding is never a bad thing, but no they do not inncrease anything.

My first bet would be your reservoir has a crack in it, or bad connection from the line into the reservoir. Bring your jeep up to operating temps then park it somewhere, shut the engine off, pop the hood and look from top and bottom and see where the leaking is coming from. That's a start. Oh also make sure everything is filled appropriately too. Also wipe everything as clean as possible, helped me find the crack in my GF radiator when everything is dry and clean.

I'll sell you some extra 1/0 wiring if you want to make more grounds. I'll sell it for cheap and I bet it'll be infinitely better than straps. From what I've seen, straps are generally really small. They don't look like they'd add any electrical benefit whatsoever, unless it's your only ground for something, in which case, you'd obviously need it.

Good grounds are a must for the motor to run smoothly. Adding more grounds or upgrading the existing ones never hurts, but there is no power or fuel economy to be gained from it unless your current grounds are so terrible that its not functioning to factory spec.

Built this honey over the past week Love making something from nothing. all the steel was "reclaimed" from the shop I used to work at. I used to work on a printing press and they were throwing some counter plates away that were bad out of the one of the presses. so I asked for em and got em. the main portion of it going across the back is a piece of 4 inch square tube. will be making that a tank for air. Hope this inspires someone. I am really happy with hoe it turned out for sure
