a few notes for myself for later:

2003 Grand Cherokee 4x4 Expedition Vehicle - Worklog (dockable HP Laptop) - MP3Car.com

2001 Grand Cherokee CarPC install - 10" monitor - MP3Car.com

No promises; I'm just thinking about it.

in that case, I need to save even more money for a taller garage. Read the build plan

And from your profile ("Unibody fixation"), I see you should stop telling people to buy LAs, and buy YOURSELF a WJ

Readers, please disregard Ducksguts' comment; he doesn't know what he's talking about

Sorry about the crappy cell pics, but they get the point across. Anyone want my old hitch receiver? PM me a price!

running into some pretty major fitment issues - I can't get the bumper on with the gas tank skid. I can get one or the other, but not both. I'm suspecting I may have to come up with something like a custom skid. More to come, but this is turning into a BIG pain.

I say you call Ron and talk to him about the skid. You could likely cut the skid and cut the tire well to lift it then. If you are going to re-weld something might as well relocate that evap canister too.

His welder is more than powerful enough for your 20 gauge sheet metal.

I've dropped the hint to him. We'll see what happens.

Raise the gas tank while you're back there. It's awesome!

That's something I'm contemplating. The thing is, the integrated skid on the bumper would have to be re-welded at a different angle, so I wouldn't hang up on it all the time. I wanted to have this bumper on two days ago, and it's still not on yet, so, depending on whether I can get my hands on a welder, it'll either get modded with the tank lift, or not. I dunno. I'll keep y'all posted.

OK, bunch of stuff going on:
  • got the bumper on
  • getting a large evap leak (and small evap leak) code. I'm gonna have to relocate the evap canister, probably like ksmith did.
  • waiting on a new CB
  • still need to work on bumper fitment a little
  • I wanna lift the tank but I need to find someone with a welder, so I can do it.
  • working on some rock lights.
  • I need to do some regular maintenance.

Fixed the evap leak but still haven't moved the canister, got and installed the CB and it's awesome. I also got the license plate installed, but I still need to run wiring for the lic. plate light. Yes, I know I still need to take a pic of the finished bumper too. I'll try to sometime soon.
