Doesn't it connect directly to the computer and control shift points, reverse lights and a bunch of other nonsense including the ignition? I don't see how you could just bypass it.
Honestly I can't stand anything 97+ as it is, but especially when the trim is all the exact same color. Looks like the whole jeep is made of plastic.

Id have to pull off the wiring diagram to explain it, but you can disconnect the wires and complete the circuit. You can also find kits on ebay to do it for like $70.

It wasn't until I bought my Jeep and hanging out with guys who do 90% of their own wrenching that I started doing it.

The one thing that has surprised me about the XJ is there have been things I've put off because i was "afraid" of trying to tackle them myself for fear of breaking something (mine's a DD so I need it running by Monday morning). Every single project, so far, has been so easy that after I've been like "I was afraid of that, I'm a freakin' wimp." Luckily, that has given me the experience and confidence to do some decent stuff...
Believe me, he's gonna help, Haha. He asked me if I would help him, and I responded sure, but your out there in the garage just as long as I am, doing most of it.

He said they bought it with most of the damage, not sure what happened to the rocker. I think were gonna try and pop it out as much as possible, and then cover it with JCR's new sliders, that way you can't really tell. The front clip and bumper needs a lot of work too though, it's definitely a project.

You think we should try and keep the red? I know Duplicolor makes a perfect match spray color that matches. Other wise we probably have to start painting stuff black like the Sport trim level. And yeah the interior isn't bad at all.

Ah, well, to each his own. We'll just clean the current NSS, and if that doesn't work it will be replaced.
