Been a long time since an update.

It looks like I'm going to have to just replace all the injectors. After fighting the misfires before on cyl 1 and 7, I'm now getting the 0300, 0304, 0308 codes, as well as 0155 (O2 sensor heater circuit). They come and go at random, but it's all too familiar operating-wise in how it's doing it. I'm actually thankful it's not the same cylinders as before, as that would lead me to believe there would be a gasket/head issue. I think at 262,000 miles some of the electrical parts are starting to show their age.

On a worse note, I noticed yesterday morning that there was a puddle of coolant on the ground directly under my crank pulley. It was about the size of a pancake, and when I popped the hood, I could see wetness on one side of the water pump. Thankfully when I replaced it May 2011, I bought the one with a lifetime warranty. I'm also hoping that it's been the cause of my moisture around the bottom of the block, and the point of entry for the air that keeps getting in the system.

So, on a brisk November Sunday, I'm going to change out the water pump on this beast and keep my fingers crossed that it's what's been letting air in the system. (rush of water on first startup, got way worse when the temps dropped)





I've developed a clunk in one of my control arms, but re-torquing the bolts takes care of it for a few days. I think the bolts need replacing. I'm going to replace them all when I do long arms in a few months.

All-in-all she's been doing pretty good.

Awesome build writeup... I'm thinking of picking up a 99 WJ shortly and will be looking to go the same way you did with the 4" X-flex lift, JK Moabs and 32's.. Look forward to seeing your build as it progresses. Congrats on the new job, I'll be looking at hopefully getting into IT after some more time in the USAF. And by the way I feel your pain, this message typed from my Asus Transformer.

I changed my water pump last weekend, and no more leak. (yay!) However, every now and then I still hear a rush of water in the dash. (not nearly as loud/hard as before, not really ever in the mornings either). Not sure what that's all about.

On another note, I came out of the grocery store to a guy with a flashlight kneeling at the back of my Jeep. I said "can I help you with something! ?" He said "your Jeep is awesome, I've got one just like it, and wanted to see what size tires those are". I asked him if he was on here, and he said yeah. I introduced myself with my forum name and told him I was a moderator and to look me up. He said he has a 2002 Slate WJ with RC 4" (non x-series).


I'm going to order the sliders at the end of the month I think. I'm going to talk to my buddy that helped (mainly) built my spare tire carrier and see what he can do first.

I've been wondering, did you ever figure out what was going on with your Hankook tires? Man do I miss mine. I have what came on the 4Runner, some store brand AT called Bigfoot or somesuch. They're all right, but not nearly as grippy as the Hankooks. At least they're not wearing too fast.

Those things come out of nowhere - especially when opening your door. Poof - magical red pole grinning at you.

The best time to add armor is after the damage has happened! Oh wait...

I recently hsd same issues. It was throwing codes everday on way to work and would go into limp mode.

Without a thermostat I knew it was running rich specially now that it is winter, so I put it back on.

I also replaced my plugs and coil pack; voila!

I still haven't done **** about the injectors. The crap idle comes and goes. New job + two kids can wear you down quickly. I've finally got everything back on track, now that I've finally got in the groove of things at the new company. (no JF during the day though )

First of the year:

-injectors
-putting the H.O. cams + intake in
-sliders
-long arms
-belly skid.
-???

Gonna get started on it all after my 90-day bonus 2nd week of January. Got a nice Christmas bonus (decent amount of $ and a Windows 8 tablet), but we decided to treat ourselves to some frivolous xmas spending on ourselves.
