I ordered a mopar replacement oil pressure sending unit online because my old one was leaking. They actually called me back and told me that according to my VIN I needed a different one. I don't think they are swappable.
It's nice to see that you are attacking this dub with the same ambition as your last one hehe. Did the old rear Billy's get crushed in the accident? Is that why you are ordering new ones?

Yes thats about correct, the 04 dummy gauge is not swapable and its a PCM problem, i believe Billzcat did some investigating on this subject and if i remember correctly its a nogo.

My lift is scheduled to 6th january, and yes one rear billy was croocked from the rearend and would not extend fully.

Really cant wait to Get thrue the christmas shhh and Get this thing up 2" and rolling on 31's.

Anyway, wish all my fellow jeepers a great holyday and may your Jeep's get as much parts as needed.

MERRY X MAS EVERYONE!!!

I've always wanted to do this. My black slat things are broken in a few places. Looks fairly straight forward... what do you use?

Also I don't think you had to snip those original pieces out? It should have all popped out?

Easy, Cheap, and quick Fix (1 hour),
especially on the 04's with separated grill bumber fascia.

I use some cheap mesh from auto store, if you remove the insert completly, the grill will wiggle sligthly after install, reason why i just cut out the plastic slots inside openings.

Always wanted to do the lower part/opening too, and the pre 04's have the slots down there, which i like, it looks better IMO.
The lower part of the 04 radiator Are very exposed for stonechips etc, so the added protection down there will be a very Good reason to put mesh down there too

Your idea of a lazy day mod and my idea of a lazy day mod differ greatly LOL

My idea of a lazy day mod is taking my WJ into town and deciding it needs new wiper blades....And let me tell you that back blade was a ***** to find today but well worth the effort.

Oh yeah, saw a set of tires and wheels today for $400.....BFG A/T KO's and the rims weren't too horrible and the tires were about 85% or so. Then I went and looked at them and they were supposed to be 17"s and they wound up being 20s. I said thanks but no thanks. 20s on a Stock WJ IMO is going to look not good.

440km Roadtrip to Sweden today, averaged 19.9mpg on EVIC.

Calculated by hand,
Last full tank, 40/60 Mixed around town and highway, 1.45l/10km~16.22mpg

Not to bad

Looks like it chew some oil when i drive it fast and hard, doing 70-80mph on highway and having some kickdowns when passing other turtle Drivers in my Way, will keep an eye on this.

Did an engine flush image-4190627841.jpg and new oil and filter today. Cant Get 10W-30 anywhere around, Valvoline Europe dont have it in its product line, no other Brand either, WTF whats up with That, 5W-30 or 10W-40 is what all shops i have checked got on shelf.

Since engine tick got worse, and i have only 3000km since my last oil change, but anyway wanted to do a flush to hopefully solve the tick. Last time i used Valvoline 5W-30, not able to find any 10W-30, today i used some 10W-40 omega oil i had around to see if That helped, anyway its not very cold now, some mornings below freezing, but nothing more.

Didnt help my tick, still same got some dirt out of engine though, image-2230252957.jpg
guess my next move will be to Get someone Ells to check whats wrong with the engine.

My main consern is rocker arms, valve, timing chain problems or worse, i dont know what happened with it as i bought it with a radiator problem, might Been overheated at some point, as i really dont want to tear into the engine myself, this one might Get expensive.

Shhhh this is really irritating the H out of me, as i Cant enjoy it before this is fixed

Ticks in 4.0's are common, but I'm a little stumped with a ticking 4.7. Normally I'd suggest a pint of MMO in your 10w40 and run it a full OCI to see if that helped (it often does with a 4.0), but I don't think MMO is available where you are.

^^^No cant Get That, but the Omega cleaner i have used with Good results before, their products have a very Good reputation.

Took a spin out to my friend Rikken, he is an awsome motorbike/hot rod fabricator/engineer, and know a little about everything.

image-2686480775.jpg


With a doctor stetoskop he listened around the engine to locate the tick, he also says is more prone on driver side valve cover, and maybe at second cylinder from the rear, but hard to pinpoint excactly.
A dropping rocker arm should made more noise, so it might be wear to either rockerarm, rollers, cam shaft, or a valve not operating correctly.

Next move will be to pull cover and see how it looks inside there, hopefully something obviously and replaceble, Rikken says These engine's Are pretty easy to repair, WTF, depends on who's talking, for me, NO, for him, YES.

Here is his latest and craziest project, 150cu in with blower, should be putting out 240-340hp!!!

More info about Rikken, see rikkencustom.com
Or rikkencustom at facebook, awsome fabricator,!!!

In the worst case the tick can be a burnt valve since its getting louder for you.

Yeah, i also been thinking That, need to pull valve cover to see if anything obviously is wrong, inspect for wear and tear rocker arms and cam lobe, also need to check driver side exhaust manifold for leak.

Not thinking it Got worse actually, its more like i noticed it more after vacuum leak and idle is fixed. It had a hissing air sucktion sound ontop of idle at 1100rpm and exhaust leak, i couldnt notice before, all Those noises covered up on the tick i believe.

After i fixed this and weather got below freezing point, i started to notice the tick first at cold start ups, changed oil to 5W-30, no luck, might Get worse or just i That Are focused on listening for it, idk, cant hear it inside cabin when engine is hot.

We will see, hopefully, hopefully, next year,,,
