HAM License is amateur radio, where the fcc is involved... if you dont have a license, and you talk on a HAM radio, you can be fined... in an emergancy it would be different.. but it takes a license to operate a HAM radio.. my dad has had his ham radio license for about 15 years or so.

So you are broadcasting on an AM/FM Frequency with a HAM radio, and not a 'CB' (which stands for citizen's band, if I am not mistaken) i.e. which is why I am assuming you do not need any special type of permit for a CB.

I want to get it!!!

I guarantee VT has an amateur radio club look em up and go to a meeting they'll get you hooked up with the means to study (trust me the test is easy) and get ur license but be forewarned ham equipment can get expensive

hey, check this out man... These are 4-hole style injectors from a Dodge Neon vs injectors from a WJ on the right... wonder why it doesnt idle like a newer modern car? I think I'm going to do some experimenting and try out some used mustang injectors from the junkyard, see what happens :P

Yours whines less than mine . I think this summer I'm going to look into an exhaust we gotta find a nice one that doesnt have a ton of drone but still sounds clean and deep (aka not flowmaster). That borla exhaust is awesome but out of the budget lol. You're running factory exhaust I assume? I think yours sounds a little deeper than mine that being said I do have a POS tin can excuse of a factory replacement on mine.

I had the Dynomax catback with a high flow cat on my XJ and it sounded awesome IMO

How did you squeak this post in last night? I did not even seen it when I posted my video!

Yeah... ummm who was the idiot who decided to put a single hole injector in a NEWER engine... when they obviously do a **** job of atomization... I would not get the ones out the the Neon, but I would pull a set out of a new car, as you said, mustang, and then if they work well. I will buy a brand new set. Also did you notice that the ohmage is different between then stock and the 4-hole injector? 12 ohms stock compared to 14 ohms with the 4 hole

Currently all stock with the exhaust. (You can see why my mpg's are crap, I like to do that, lol) I want to find out what the muffler is on the Borla exhaust and then I will just mandrel bend some 2.5 inch pipe at my Uncle's racecar shop or just have a muffler place bend the new pipe.

The XJ actually sounds pretty good, better then the crap that the WJ's have stock.

Ughh I hate the stock wj exhaust. The dynomax catback reliably goes on sale once a year for 50% off making the muffler, mandrel tailpipe, and the polished stainless steel tip only $75. Plus I like the way it sounds on my XJ should be barely different on the wj. You better believe i am going to hit that up. I was going to the junk yard but I called ahead to see how much injectors were. They wanted $25... EACH can you believe that!? I can get a brand new set for $20 each. This mod will wait till summer till I'm home and I have either more money or my junkyard at home (where I can get better deals).

All this hate is making me want a fricken Overland more and freaking more. Exhaust, transmission, rear axle...

Are you going to get that setup for your WJ? Cause when that deal comes out, hit me up and Ill buy it!

What I thought they were like 35-40 new?

You can get a set of 6 injectors brand new for $120ish online I think it was like precision injector or fivemotorsports I'll have to check so yeah $25 each for used ones yeah right

Yeah I have a habit of picking on the 4.0 that doesn't mean I don't still love mine but I've been exposed to so much v8 in my life that nothing's ever the same smooth rumble. Don't get me wrong I love the i6.... In my XJ where it's like 1400lbs lighter lol.

I'll let you know when I see the sale going on its awesome
