Nice find on the hitch. What did the junk yard charge you for it? I would guess it was a steel of a deal.

For the hitch, harness, bumper, and a clutch fan I paid $200.

considering the hitch is $250 before shipping i think i made out alright.

thats odd... your cooling system may have an air bubble in it.

This is where it was when i was driving hard on the beach in part time in 1st or second gear. It never got that high again while driving around, I switched to 4-low though, which then i didnt have to press the gas as hard.

No warning lights came on. only light that was on while the engine was running was the part time light. the engine was off when I snapped that pic

So did you remove the electric fan? I know my 99 WJ with the 4.7 has the tow package, but the mechanical fan and an electric fan.

I'd make sense to me to keep both fans... more cooling?

For whatever reason I could not get both to fit. And my e-fan barely works anyways so I ditched it. Worked all day today and it didn't come close to the 210 mark.

I've got a brand new rad. Free of leaks, air bubbles, and of course new fresh coolant. Maybe that's why.
