Bought it! Well, yesterday, actually.

1995 Orvis Edition. I'll be using it mostly as a mall crawler, but I live on 14,000 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, so it will see plenty of offroading, too. Nothing too serious, though. Just logging trails and open meadows and stuff.



DAMN! the inside of that thing looks mint! and i would love to live on 14000 acres. that would be boss

Yes. It would be boss indeed. That Orvis is great looking. I have always liked the interiors. No rips in the seats or anything. Nice find.

Haven't posted in awhile, haven't had to do any work nor the time.
Was rear ended Friday.
Had all the damage except the tail pipe repaired yesterday from my parts Jeep. Parts included taillight housing, bumper and bumper cover. Took many photos for the other guys insurance to see on Monday.
Ordered new tail pipe from Kolak.
Changed fog lamps complete with replacing a broken housing and changed wiper blades on mine and the wife's ZJs to Rainex Latitude today.

I put my winter wiper blades back on. Hopefully they'll be good and I won't need to buy another set.

I'm still trying to figure out how to wire up my remote start... I just want to make sure I do it right the first time.

Remote starts aren't too bad. Check out the12volt.com. I've done a handful of them in more electriconically advanced vehicles than our ZJs. That site pretty much gives you everything you need to know, including bypasses you may need. I haven't installed one in a ZJ, but I'm pretty sure there's no bypass needed for them.

I'd do a remote start on mine because I always let it warm up in the morning before work, except I need to fix the damn check valve in the fuel tank (or w/e the problem is), if you purge the fuel pump twice before you try to start it (cycle the key) it'll start right up every day. If you just sit there and hold it in 'start' though, it'll take like 10 seconds. I'd rather it not sit there every morning for that long trying to start.
Gotta see how hard it is to get that check valve replaced...

i think the check valve is part of the pump or the module itself

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

what didnt i do to my zj today, well yesterday and today. swapped a good 44a in place of the junk one that i swapped in over the summer. swapped on a lift glass hatch, swapped on another drivers side door to replace the crappy one i bought a few months ago cause i didnt have a choice. installed new hub bearings and put in some axle tube seals. also put on a set of 31s on eagle alloy 589s. initially i was just going to be swapping my 235s onto my cousins zj that was headin to the junkyard for scrap, well i saw alot more parts that i could use, gave him 200 bucks for everything, and replaced anything removed with my old stuff, to keep the weight up so he didnt lose any money and made alittle more. 2 days in the freezing cold, on frozen dirt payed off though, jeep drives better than ever now

I want to look into a remote start for mine although in the morning, I wake up early to start it and walking outside in my boxers and slippers in 10 degree weather really wakes me up lol. Better than coffee. I just like the idea of not having to leave my keys in the ignition although I do live in a nicer part of town.

For mine today, bought a beacon! Was only $60 after 40% off at northern plus some other coupons. I just couldn't resist it while Christmas shopping there. Really freakin' bright! Only issue is it has a cigarette lighter plug in and it's to short so I really have to stretch it. I have a buddy who just bought one for his truck and knows a guy that can professionaly wire it to the battery for cheap. Just gotta find a place to mount the switch. Pics later.

if there are 2 wires then you can just cut the cig lighter plug off and wire it with a switch. just like a set of aux lights.
