My girlfriends uncle works at a machine shop,I'm sure he can have it cut out on the cnc. Will get like a 2in tube and have my uncle bend it and I'll mount some light tabs on it and put 4 daylighter knock offs from advanced on it. I'm going to get 3.5in lift springs up front, put stocks in the back,and get dt8000 shocks,I'll do that before I do the bumper. Get some 31x10.50 good year wrangler authority and some new rims. This will start in about 2weeks,going to gather parts to fix from the crash. Need a new fan and fan clutch,and radiator. Then I'm going to pull a part. Going to get a complete upper rad support then it should be good,going to order clear corners and turn signals. Will update as I get stuff done.
fan+fan clutch = time for a Taurus E-fan

Apparently in NC the ABS light doesn't matter in a vehicle inspection, and he said he would run the diag on it for free! Score!!!

I think California might be the only state where they bother with ABS lights. I've never had trouble with nonfunctional ABS in Texas.

Picked up my "Taurus" e-fan (actually from a Lincoln) today from the junk yard.

Also, replaced my crank position sensor. I have officially completed my Jeep hazing after replaceing the TPS and CKPS.

Got timing chain and gears, upper and lower rad hoses, and thermostat in the mail from mopar-wholesale.

DC controller for fan got shipped today.

Got the dakota air hat to work. No noticeable power gains, but my exhaust is a tad louder.

Drained my rear diff and sprayed out with brake cleaner. Been getting a noise at lower speeds like a low growl/whine. Re gasket and rtv and topped off with 80w-90 and drove around and sound seems to be gone.

Now time to alleviate my squeaky exhaust and build my 'new' HP d30

re-charged the AC on saturday still working like a champ for now. (did add dye)
and today i did a yard run and picked up a front bumper with fog slots, the fogs and switch from a 98 laredo donor. the only reason i took the bumper is well because i am lazy and dont want to cut the old one.
but in my defense the old one is broken, one of the mounting slides is busted off.

I think the 4.0 come with a 90 amp, 5.2 might be a 117. If thats what you have. I know a 5.9 alternator is same fit as a 5.2. But 5.9 is 150 amp. Iirc ejshults did that for a cheap high utput alt for his system
