I was changing my u joints today and noticed that the left side of my jeep is noticeably taller than the right nothing seems to be broken and it seems to ride ok. I would post my questions else where but can't navigate forums to save my life
97 ZJ with 31x10.5 Ravines spacers 2" bb rough country shocks 8 kcs 204k xj marker light doorless
Brokedown the spare on the 94 to replace it with a good matching which I wad going to replace the strangly worn on the jeep (low pressure? Bent wheel? IDK) but as I was remounting the tire to the wheel "WTF" said I,
im thinking about just buying the 31x10.5 treadwrights warden would like to find something a little narrower maybe 9.5
Well I replaced the Power Streering Gearbox, Power Steering Resivore, and High Pressure Steering Hose, now she has a new steering system and water cooling system, running fine, But went out to go to the the store the other day and had to jump start her, I inadvertantly left the lights on the night I had to go to the the hospital, got her jump started, 3rd time in 5 months, went to AutoZone to have the battery checked out and found out the Altinator was bad, the rectifier died in it so it wasn't fulling charging the battery, I found a great deal on a new 200amp Altinator on eBay, called the company, got it for 124.00 plus shipping, I should be getting it in a couple of days. but was wondering if the old one can be taken off and new one replaced without removing the AC compressor? was told by a mech. that they have to remove the AC compressor to get to it, I've been sick and don't really feel up to doing it myself right now. and the Mech. was telling me that the 200 amp Altinator will burn out the electrical system? now from my ham radio lessons and basic electronics I've had tells me that the system will ONLY pull the amount of amps it needs to run everything and not hurt the system? I am not mistaken am I? I've seen other trucks and ambulances that have had larger Altinators or Dual Altinator systems on them, so I dont see where there is a problem. I got the larger one because I want to install a dual battery system and later on a large vortage inverter in her.
The larger alternator could potentially burn up the factory charging wire. You'll want to run a larger wire from the alternator to the battery positive, a larger wire from battery negative to the chassis, and a large wire from either the block to the chassis or the block to the battery negative. This is what we call, in the car audio world, the "Big 3." You leave all your factory wiring in place and put this in there along with it. Current always takes the path with the lowest resistance and the larger the wire, the less resistance you'll have. With a 200 amp alternator, I'd recommend doing the big 3 in 1/0 to ensure you don't melt any wiring under the hood. All the other electronics in the Jeep will be fine. They're not going to pull more current than they need.

I keep a list of things that need doing. Things get added things get bumped up the list and some have been there for a long time. This week I managed to get 10mm pine tree style plastic bungs to secure my rattling plastic bits under the radiator.
