New blend door kit.

Hoping the parts I ordered before these aren't spread across i75 as we had a fedex truck turn over yesterday....


The Gleeping (Glamour Jeeping) Diary. Entry #2
Last week I bought a Grand Cherokee Limited. It had some typical issues one of which was a broken blend door for the heat. After a fairly simple fix the Gleep is up and hauling *** again. I love my JK but there is something nice about heated leather and a V8. Now to make it look like a Jeep. Thinking the 4in Long arm will help with that. And brakes. All of which should be here today.

Door check fixed



Little helper



Lift kit



left turn signal is intermittently inop Im betting on the flasher relay failure that is common on these things. This jeep seems to be plauged by all the little common issues associated with the WJ.

update 1
Small update I was in the process of installing the rear brackets for the lower longarms and decided to make a design change. This kit is designed as a bolt on and it probably would be. the two rear brackets they want you to drill 4 1.25in holes in the frame for the nutplate to slide into. This would have required removing the exhaust and moving some brake lines around to clear the hole saw........... Ill just weld it on. Much easier and doesnt involve more holes in the frame.



update 2
Minor setback today. Front is 90% assembled. Shocks brakes and arms are in. Old arm brackets are gone. Need to do the quick discos and track bar.... trackbar threads were Fed up so they are sending me another one. I also need new upper bushings as the oem ones are ripped.
