Finally found the problem with the pass side front window. What was happening was the window would do nothing with the driver side master switch, but, the door switch would lower the window, but not raise it. Turns out, the ground for the up position was broken at the driver's door hinge. I jumped the wire, and now everything works! One question for anyone that has fixed a broken wire in the door, how did you run the wire to the door? Thanks!
As far as your broken ground in the door goes - when I had this issue with my wife's '04 WJ all I had to do was cut back both sides of the ground wire that broke, crimp a good butt connector on each end and add a ~6" length of same gauge wire in between to bring the connection back up to snuff and be sure that it doesn't happen again. I was lucky in that the break was right where the wire passed through the rubber boot between the fender and the door, so I just pulled the boot off of one side, made the repair, and reinstalled it.
1992 Cherokee Laredo - all stock, DD. Needs some minor rust repair, then on to the mods!
Thanks! In my case I never was able to physically see the break, just narrowed the area down by testing plugs with a multimeter. I just cut the wires as close to the wire lumb in the door, connected a jumper, and it worked. Basically, I just want to hide the extra wire somehow.
Got the interior back together after hiding the wire I added for the window to work. Still don't understand why I could run the window down with the pass door switch, but, nothing up or down at the master switch. Oh well, all windows work with all switches, so, I'm happy.
I also got the temp gauge working. The sender that Advance sold me wasn't the correct one. Stone cold, the gauge read 210°, and it went up from there like it was at 0°. I got one from Pep Boys, the Borg Warner WT430, and it works great! Now I know what the temp is, and not just the ECU!
Ok, did the eliminate-the-oil-filter-adapter mod today. No leaks, and same oil pressure as before. I got the adapter off, got the hollow stud out of the adapter and screwed that in the block, and then put a Purolator L10241 filter on the spot on the block where the adapter was, and done! No more leaks, and no more having to deal with that adapter leaking again! I'm happy!
Ok, I was able to get another overhead console at the JY today, and guess what? THE LITTLE COMPUTER WORKS!!!!! I was fearing that the wiring harnass I got was bad, tried four different computers, and all dead. This one was from a '96 Country, and the console itself was in better shape then the one I had! Cost me $15 and change!! Just glad it works!!!
Haven't done much to the Cherokee, as my wife's Grand took alot of time to finish. The next item to put on the XJ was an Rubicon Express 3" lift that a guy in our Jeep club gave me for free! Here is how it turned out:
This is how they should have come from the factory. Even the 225/75R15's don't look ridiculously small. It'll be interesting how it does on the highway. I'm getting an alignment before that happens.
I would like to get some 31's eventually, might get these Nitto Crosstek tires I have on my wife's WJ. It's a great looking tire, but, it's a street tire. With this being a 2WD DD, there was no reason to get expensive tires.
Well, while my CJ9 is not in drivable condition right now (needs complete rebuild), I swapped the wheels/tires between the CJ and my XJ. These are 33x10.50 Super Swamper TSL's on stock XJ steelies. The Swampers actually measure 32" as they are pretty worn.
Here is the XJ flexing, still have the sway bars connected. They don't seem to rub at all, aside from turning at full lock.
Eventually, I'll be looking for an all terrain tire in the 32" range, think that will work well for mall crawlin'!
