Finally got the new NSS, just waiting for my mechanic buddy to get over here and put the new one in..going through Jeep withdrawl. This morning I was at an event at the Va Beach Convention Center and saw the new Cherokee live and in person. Not bad but I wasn't impressed with it..lots of goodies but I really wonder if it's got the chops to hang with it's namesake. Guess only time will tell...

Lets not bring that argument into this thread please! The KL is a Cherokee just like the KK and KJ and XJ before it, its just a name!

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

Got the Autopals installed. Made a new harness with heavy duty relays, and all no. 10 wire. I need to button up a few things, could really use a distribution block too.

Don't know or I would have ordered it tonight. Little help appreciated.
Youll be happy with the head! I have a clearwater. Order the newer one yes. It doesnt come with a gasket and bolts you have to ask for them. I made that mistake lol

I've been gone from this thread for a while, but I recently got a new to me '91. Today I cleaned the CCV system to hopefully prevent blowback into the air box and I changed the passenger seat and driver seat to repair the broken driver seat. I did repair it using pop rivets and some flat aluminum I had laying around. I put that seat on the passenger side because it doesn't get used much, but it felt like the unbroken one. I also replaced the battery cable terminals with marine brass ones, and uninstalled the incorrectly installed radio and reinstalled it correctly.

Wheeled, had to do a XJ extraction from the trail. Started with 8 - 3XJ's ended with 6 with only my XJ. Transmission return line disabled a buddy's Jeep 200 yards into the trail.

I like the t stat housing. That looks really close to patriot blue. And would match nicely.

But , maybe I'm all wet ???
Thanks everyone!

Does anyone know anything about Hippo Liner? My dad knows a guy with a hippo liner shop and he wants them to paint my new bumper as a quality test since he wants his 79 GMC bedlined. Any thoughts on it? If it's bad, I'm probably gonna do Monstaliner.
