those rings don't look too sturdy, unless they just appear small in comparison to the plates.

Don't run those, they are not the correct type to be using.

So if I just pull those rings off and buy some bigger rings does the plate and everything else look decent?

Changed the oil, spark plugs, spark plug wires, and the struts for the back window... Ready to get more done on her tomorrow!

You need to be able to tie into the subframe somehow and the shackles or the shackle mounts need to be more than just surface welded.

Please do not install those - they will rip out of the already thin uniframe and potentially injure or kill somebody. You'll still be stuck.

Recovery points need to be very well supported by brackets and back plates. There are a lot of threads on this, and there may very well be something in the FAQ (I haven't looked back at it in a while).

Tranny Went To Limp Mode This Morning

This morning as I was leaving work I pull out of my parking spot and I was thinking Jeep feels really heavy. Sure enough 2 seconds later CEL pops up.

Feels as if my Jeep is starting in 3rd gear. It goes into all gears just not 1st I believe.

I hope it's the solenoid everyone talks about.

If so how much does it cost? Which brand should I go with? How easy/hard to install? Is ok to drive as long as I take it easy on the Jeep?

Ok I pulled the code and got P1757. My stupid code book only goes to P0998 .

Thanks to google P1757 - Governor Pressure Above 3 PSI When Request Is 0 PSI.

What ever the hell that means.. Anyways I cleared the code, had I drive to the mail box about 1 mile round trip and I had ALL my gears back like nothing ever happened.. So I guess I will wait till later today to see if it comes back... Might have been a fluke??

And it sucks that the Governor Pressure and Trans Solenoid are inside the tranny

Did the same thing to mine, those rims look so much better black. Nice job.
