Stacking them sounds like a plan. I thought about just one but I thought it'd probably move over time. I'm pretty tired and really couldn't devise a way to make them not slide. Thanks. Lol.

Yesterday my starter gave out on me. Today I pulled it out took it apart to replace the brushes. The brushes were ok so I checked and replaced the silenoid. Starter is back in running order.

Sounds like a good quick diagnostics

Replaced my o2 sensor with an NTK one, disconected the battery for the night to help the computer out hopefully, pic of the old sensor: (i like pictures. Lol)

Well I hadn't done much to my Jeep lately except pull the upper console down, my Roommates idoit friend BROKE the overhead lights! and it was staying on running battery down! well I went and got another consile and put that in but the lights did not work but something still kept draining the battery, so I pulled it down and got another console it had slightly different lights BUT the damned plug was keyed exactly oppiset!, so I took that down and have had to manually lock and unlock the doorsso i'm not sure if I just want to file teh key part off and plug it in or wait to get a nother console of the same style, and threatened the idoit friend that if he touches it again i'll BREAK his damned fingers OFF!, I had an alignment done and the steering gear box tightend up after they did the alignment they said oh BTW I know you had a new gear box put in but you need to get another one because you have too much play in your steering, I had aboout an inch or more of play, I got someone else to tighten up the gear box but now my steering is so tight that if I move the steering wheel the wheels move instantly LOL I dont' know what I like more, steering with a little play in it or the steering with NO play at all, I had to replace the Track link bar and steering damper, that was a pain to remove had to take the lcenter link bar off and take it to a machine shope to have it removed, and I was also told that I now need new ball joints upper and lower! i'm half tempted to also replace the tie rod ends at the same time but OMG they want almost 500.00 in labor to do them all!!! but i've got to get at least the ball joints done by the end of sept. that's when my inspection sticker runs out. but when it's done the whole steering system will be compleatly new.

The 2 best proven budget e-fans for ZJs are the niner e-fan and the Taurus e-fan.

Both use the same motor.

At one time, somebody had said they found an e-fan from a PT Cruiser. I didn't hear much about it though, so I can't speak to it.

Zip ties it was. I put four of the lead sinkers on the cable and went to hit the gas to see if they'd stay. They didn't they all popped off. Stupid soft metal... I ended up using 7 zip ties in a row to get the throttle to stay where it's good. At WOT, the pedal doesn't quite reach the floor. I may take out one or two zip ties because of this. I doubt it's an issue though. The throttle body has a stop on it at WOT so I don't think it'll break anything.

If that's the case, I wish I would have kept the fan out of my wife's PT Loser we sold. The dealer flipped it at an auction and it was sold to some loser in Chicago who ended up getting the car impounded for unlawful drugs. How do I know this? Because the city of Chicago contacted my wife telling her she had 10 days to get her car out of the impound. We called and they gave us an email address and said they'd be able to get it straightened out. The guy I emailed said that I had to provide 3 legal documents stating that I don't own the car. Yeah right. I wrote a pretty insulting email back and now somewhat am expecting a ticket or court subpoena in the mail because of the email. There's no way I'm taking time out of my busy 50-60 hour work week or having my wife who's 8 months pregnant deal with that.

Really like the snowflakes painted black. IMO they look so much better.
