Bought a 242 tc out of a 97xj that only had 60k on it for $200
And bought 3 pair of 5.9 hood vents for $20/pair

went to a bunch of places to get quotes on hitches and wiring kits. cheapest i found was $330 installed for the hitch and wiring. not bad since everywhere else is like $450. plus i dont want to mess with the wiring in the jeep since i did that on the xj and it caused so many headaches

My neighbor was stuck in a ditch, so we pushed him out since the Alero doesn't have a good spot to hook a tow rope on the front. He had a flat and his car was going no where so I pulled him all the way up our street covered in ice and into his drive way... gotta love 4-lo!!!

well atleast selling those off will make up for how much you dropped on that 242. i got lucky when i found mine with 60k on it out of an 01 xj for 80 bucks and may i ask how you found those niner vents for so cheap?

Davies jeeps . Looked around and found them collecting some dust behind boxes

Two pair dont have the bottom pieces (that go under the hood) and theres about 10 broken screw mounts across all 6, but I don't mind doing a little work. I'll either epoxy new ones on or just fiberglass them on the hood when I put them on.

I found 3 242's for a bit cheaper than that, but they're all a full tank of gas away, so I figured I'd just run down the road and give him my business.

edit:
Anyone know the specifications of where the vents are mounted on the 5.9 hoods? I didn't know if they were centered front to back or not

tried on the wheel/tire combo im more than likely gonna go with come spring. 16x8.5" MB chaos wheels with 255/6516 BFG long trails on them. looks awesome and with the offset i ordered them through work with, they line up perfect with the fender. exactly the look i was going for

its snowing out so i went out and played with it. going out later to play some more..tried on a wheel and tire and took some pics with my cell. i think i might just get some 245/70/16 BFGs for the jeep and run the stock wheels and spacers. still debating on whether or not to get a 2" BB or not..

Took off the valve cover found out my cyl 3 intake valve is hanging up, seafoamed it again and it seemed to have helped. then dropped the tranny pan on her and letting her drain overnight.
