Put a steering wheel cover on it and 2 new lug nuts on the passenger side front wheel. Later tonight or tomorrow I will properly torque every lug nut.

I'm thinking of selling the ZJ... What do you think it's worth with the mods in my signature? 220k miles and cosmetically it's nothing special at all and has many battle scars. However mechanically it's very solid, great oil pressure, transmission recently was serviced and the cooler was upgraded, tires are like new, steering gearbox was replaced, new brakes front and rear, and a fresh tune up. The mods were about $1800 and around $500 in tires and all of this stuff was replaced in the last 3000 miles (because it's been sitting over 75% of the time since they were installed)

The only reason I'm thinking of selling it is because I don't use it enough and I want to build this monster to daily drive hehe



Only instead of a 1000cc bike engine I'm thinking 2.8l V6 with 210 ft lbs of torque... lol.

There's usually 5 or 6 at the yards around here, but they turn around fast. I've gotten pretty good at identifying them.

My cassette player worked great in mine as well as the cd player and radio. The only reason i took mine out was because my display kept fading in and out and i got tired of not being able to see it.

I installed a Spartan Locker in my D30 today. I found it brand new on CL for $180, so I had to pick it up . It was super easy install (under 2 hours), and it works like a champ (I pulled myself out of a deep ditch with no sweat. I never could make it through before).

I'll give you $7.32 and this pocket lint that looks like Mother Theresa if you squint very hard.

Also, all of you with cassette adapters are missing out. Bluetooth stereo is so much better, you would not believe. The quality is superb, and the convenience of not having to plug some stupid thing in and have wires everywhere is beautiful.

If you're talking about the stud that comes off the water pump for the clutch to mount to, it's an M30 x 1.5. At least that's what it is on the V8s. I don't know if the 4.0 uses the same clutch as the V8s. The V8 uses a standard thread. IIRC, the 4.0 is a reverse thread. You're not going to find a nut for that. I had to special order the M30 x 1.5 at Fastenal for mine. It's also completely pointless to have it on there. It was a waste of $13 for me. Although, when I went back to a mechanical fan, I pulled the nut off and my threads were clean. It may have been worth the $13 to not have to clean off the threads before installing the fan.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt... Bluetooth is a lot better than a cassette adapter for overall sound quality. However, high end cassette decks (not what originally came in our ZJs) are regarded as some of the best SQ decks ever made. Cassettes store audio in analog. iPods, CDs, other MP3 players, your phones, etc all store audio in a digital format. Most decks use a 1 bit DAC. Sound quality is compromised. Some higher end decks use a 24 bit DAC. That greatly helps reduce the DAC's bit depth and jitter, while increasing its amplitude and clock accuracy. It still isn't perfect, but it's a whole lot better. Some decks used regulated 1 bit DACs which perform similarly to a 24 bit DAC but are slightly noisier. Lastly, some decks have a 24 bit DAC per network. The deck in my car utilizes 3 24 bit DACs: one for the lowpass network, one for the bandpass network, and one for the highpass network. A setup like that is the best you're going to find in modern car audio. Back to where I was going... Hardwired or actually putting a CD or cassette into a good deck is the only way to get really good sound quality out of your system. Then again, SQ is all subjective anyhow.

You're right, but in a car, it's rarely a quiet enough / perfect enough listening environment for that last little bit to be noticeable, even with good speakers, good ears and good source material.

you can't compare DACs just on the bit number a 1-bit DAC can sound just as good if not better than a 24bit DAC it's all about the quality of the DAC in question

The convenience of BT makes up for the sound quality. Hands free calling and texting is really nice. So is hopping in the car and having Pandora play without the phone ever leaving my pocket. You can tell you're not in a studio, but I usually have the windows down and the music up so it never bothers me. Besides, I'd say the speakers are the sound quality limiting factor in 99% of ZJs. Anything sounds bad through blown dash tweeters.

Is it really worth debating with him after a quote like this anyways? I agree, those tweeters suck. I pulled them out right after I got it.
