And my bumper cover is going to stay off for the forseeable future. Now I just need to move the evap.
Yeah move it before you break it, like my ******* didn't do... Son of a *****...

Took my sway bar links off and drove around the yard, flexed on a downed tree. The tires rub the sheet metal in front of the tires really bad. When trying to out the links back on the driver side ball joint on yhr end link now freely spins so I cannot tighten it. I ordered a new link. It should be here Friday, until then she sits getting great gas mileage.

good gas mileage is highly overrated.

Lot next to mine. If the 30 is busted I'll be forced to rebuild the HP30 I have sitting in my garage. About time, and my 242...

I just got that last month. It seriously blows a dust cloud when you rev on dirt. It kept my Jeep from overheating at Uwharrie with a 50% kinked exhaust. It moves tons of air, although you'll notice a slight decrease in gas mileage.

It's a jeep i would have bought a civic if I was concerned about mpg. Lol. Guess I'll get it and a trans cooler. Then a fan and condenser at the jy because I can't afford almost 200$ for a new condenser.

I would do an E-fan if I had to all over. And add an auxiliary trams chiller is an upcoming project.

I don't want an Efan because of another strain on the electrical system. Mine has the tow package so it came with a trans cooler

Meh...if your cooling system is in good condition, the strain on the electrical system is minimal. Fix any leaks you have, get a quality controller that actually uses a thermostat and it only has to run when it must, and at the speed necessary to maintain a cool motor.

I've been running my DC Control system for more than 5 years now, and I just have to remember to shut off the switched lead when I'm parking the Jeep for an extended period of time...not all that often any more

How much does a setup like that cost?

If your compressor and clutch are still good you can set up the system for onboard air.
