Hope this inspires someone. I am really happy with hoe it turned out for sure

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?


Squazz: The best way would be to use what is called a "transfer punch". Basically it's a piece of hardened steel with a punch point on it that is a very* close fit for the dia. hole your bolt goes through. Bolt up the box (tight!) and put the punch in the spare hole, hit it and you've got a witness mark to start your hole drilling. You can grind a point on a hard (grade 8) bolt and do the same thing.

Good Luck!

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.
I was told a while ago that an XJ one would fit, you would just need to oval out either the two front or two rear holes a little to get them to line up. I'm sure the GW will fit thoguh as it's the same frame, isn't it?

Just installed a new AC Evaporator unit and did the heater core too while it was apart. Go the truck blowing ice cold untill the discharge line blew out on me. tomorrow the new line should arrive ( hopefully) i tried 6 diffrent auto part places and warehouses and NOBODY had it. They had every AC line but the discharge line. My luck.. So in the mean time i put my spacer blocks in and my 31's on haha

Not today, but yesterday I went to pick up the ZJ from my old apartment building and somebody else who lives in the building had parked behind me with a bloody Yaris in the drive way and has gone on vacation for an unknown amount of time Two options. Drive through the wall (not gonna happen) or break into her car and move it my way
Let's see how good a yaris's security really is eh?

I can imagine. Ive done it years ago and was awesome. I too think the jack thing is best, not as much stress on the back.

Plus using a jack to move the car will have less legal things than breaking in to a car.....

Talk to the apartment manager and get it towed. When they get back theyd have some nice fees built up.

I had 5 cars towed in a 30minute time span on Monday. They were all parked illegally on wrong side of street and I saw a little girl and her mom almost get hit because they crosswalk was blocked on corner of our Condo building. Laughed so hard seeing people come back from fireworks and were pissed.

People in Seattle just park wherever is convenient I noticed lately and then flash there emergency blinkers.
