I'm guessing the ground on my cargo rack is to weak but I've either stripped, broke or drilled out all the nearby siderail bolts (they just had to use torx bolts). So I'm gonna have to figure that out.
I have my 4 100 watt a piece roof lights wired together and grounded to the front pass side torx bolt in the rack. They are all just as bright now as they were when installed. I think what i did iirc was loosened all the bolts on the pass side and put my ground lug under the rack and drilled a hole for my hot wire to run through and siliconed everything up and bolted it back down.

Steering wheel adjustment / alignment?

Can you tell us how to do it or post a video on how to do it as I have been looking but the search doesn't work that well if I do know the terms to use. All I know is I am tired of feeling like I am turning left all the time. 95 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 I6 looks like it is mostly stock with over 300000 km on it I have been searching for a while but can't find anything on how to do it

There is a sleeve with two bolts on the drag link. Loosen them and twist the sleeve one way or the other while someone watches the steering wheel until it's centered.

Latest addition to the myriad of gauges cluttering the interior:



Little bit of spring cleaning. The stock air hat/box are back on until me and Mr. Angle grinder spend some more quality time with the hood to resolve some rubbing issues.

Fixed rear lock and latch. I can now open the back and now have power locks on it too (coat hanger connecting rod)!

Installed a radio (was without since I got this, 4 months ago), dash and front speakers horribly blown, rear speakers not working at all.

Fix one problem, create another.

Gotta have a radio, it hides at least half of your problems.

bahahaha Sooo true! It hid a bad front axle cv, lifter tick, poor idle rattling, and soo much more on mine. Now that I'm keeping the radio quiet, it's driving me crazy!

Well the good news is I sold my D35 that I still had in NJ and my new exhaust manifold came today. However I broke my PS pump in the removal process and the old manifold refuses to come out, and it's all over one damn stubborn bolt. Anyone want to take a guess as to which one it is? Regardless I'm essentially stranded at my house right now and in need of a power steering pump to even have a shot of getting this on the road tomorrow... yaaay jeeps.

Tore the dash apart AGAIN and replaced my heater hose all the way up to the core, by chopping most of the tube off. No more leaking! also screwed my foot blend door just partially open instead of shut so I have air to the ft again! Also flexed out on a gravel pile front first then in reverse to see hot much I would need to bump stop. Was kinda disappointed with the flex, though I know it's not that huge of a "ramp". I know my rear ca's are out a little to far (followed iro suggested measurements) and when I flexed on a snow pile a few weeks ago the rear tire hit the bumper, thinking about opting to trim the bumper instead of fussing with the ca's. I couldn't mimic hitting the rear bumper though, maybe because I was discoed this time?

Nothing, but I am trying to decide between rebuilding the suspension & steering or saving up for a newer vehicle.....

Well thanks to a neighbor and a **** ton of extension cords I was able to cut that damn bolt off with my dremel (and my last cut off wheel). Ripped out the old manifold/gasket, put the new gasket in and set the new manifold in place and just finger tightened it onto the studs. The jeep gods also smiled upon me and it looks like the salvage yard down the road has a PS pump off of a 96 in stock, if the stars align tomorrow might not be to bad.
