Here we go! Won't be able to get the memory to work. But would like to get the heated seat option going somehow!

They look great and are really comfy!

They look good. Really. If I recall, the heated seat module is under the driver's seat, and this goes under the carpet to the passenger seat. There's an in-dash button/switch that turns it on. It looks to be some form of transformer under the driver seat. I'm not sure how it all works. I never could figure it out, so when I transplanted leather WJ seats into my ZJ, I just lived without the heating function. I hope you're able to find a way to make them work. It might be easier as you're putting them into another Dub.

Yes, it snows in Texas.

WJJeeps is my hero lol. I'll keep an eye on eBay. Should have snagged that whole WJ. He wanted a Grand and it was mine. There was much money to be made.

For 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees that came without heated seats the wiring is a little more involved as the heat function is controlled via the PCI Bus and you will be hooking up two seats. Two heated seat switches will have to be purchased and installed in the center bezel. Some center bezels have the holes pre-cut with blank plates installed while others may have to be trimmed out with a dremel type tool. Some owners elect to just purchase a new center console bezel assembly as there are several choices available (with and without ashtray for example). See Interior Trim for a list of part numbers for center bezels.

NOTE: A factory pre-wired harness for the heated seat switches is located behind the center lower bezel in most if not all models that did not have this feature. All you have to do is plug the two harness plugs into the two heated seat switches.

Well I saw something I didn't really like yesterday from the Jeep. Saw a puff of blue smoke from the exhaust on start up. Just a little bit and stopped. (my friend was moving the Jeep and I saw it). So I was told that this was the valve seals leaking a little oil into the exhaust. I guess it is something to keep an eye on and check the oil levels more frequently. I'm going to be curious with the next oil analysis if they find any excessive iron or metal.

I put in the other heated mirror for the passenger side today. While I had the door panel I remembered that the Keyless Entry antenna was in the passenger door panel. I read around a while ago on here that people had luck extending the range by adding some more wire to the antenna wire. So, I added about 3 feet of similar gauge wire to it and taped it to the door panel. Put it back together and BAM I now have about 20-30 foot range compared to 2-3 feet of range! Simple and easy!

Awesome thread and WJ!

I'm still on page 388 and need to catch up.

I was wondering if you could possibly measure your IRO LCA's length so I can get my caster close to yours.

BAM BAM... BAM!

Hey Thanks man, Sure has been a project. Haha.

Every Jeep is a little different but, to get a rough count I have about 4-5 threads showing on my LCA's. Barely extended over factory length from what I can tell, I really does not take much. Where I am at, caster wise, is a little too much. I am round 6.7 of caster at the moment and I am getting some driveline MINOR driveline vibes at 70-75+ mph.

I would recommend a bit of trial and error with the control arms and shoot for a caster number around 5-5.5, that seems to be a general number to shoot for in the WJ community with a lift. I got myself an unlimited alignment plan with a local tire shop so they can measure my caster angle for me. (They won't adjust it, the print out just tells me what I needed to do).

If you would like, I can take some pictures for you for a visual reference.
