I might have missed it but where are you mounting the fire stick?

I have been considering getting a different antenna. I have mine mounted up front opposite of the radio antenna. I have the Wilson Flex 4' antenna and had some issues getting it tuned. It isn't perfect but it's better than it was. I find it strange that I'm only picking up probably a half mile to a mile on the interstate. Anyways, just curious where you're mounting yours.

just gonna fab a braket and mount it to the body right above the rear tail light (like most do)...then I gotta get creative with how I run that huge wire. I have so many wires stuffed under my door sills from my sub and tv's. I may have to find another way to run it......

I know it's not the most logical solution but above the headliner perhaps? It is another route if your door sills are 'full'...

ok, well got the Christmas bonus check. Now I cant decide. I had it down to RCV's which would pretty well complete the WJ for a while after I install the few things i'm getting for Christmas. However, I have really been wanting a ZJ as DD. I'd love a 5.9 but they are soooooo rare around TN. However, I found a pretty sweet '95 ORVIS for only $2900. Its only got 123k on the clock and the interior looks in great shape from the one pick.....I can jump on it now and pat cash without picking up a payment and retire the WJ......what to do what to do. Come on guys. give me some advice.

Looks like a clean ZJ but if you really want the 5.9, I'd wait and do some intense searching to find one. Don't settle.

I agree, don't settle. wait for the right 5.9 to show up.

Oh man, I have an orvis and if I had the money I'd buy this. Much cleaner than mine. I'd just swap my performance parts over. But, alas, after 3 months out of country, no budget

So you should buy it, and when you find your 5.9, turn around and sell this to me

haha...thats a plan. Any advice on it in general? How does the trans hold up on these? Im still considering a 5.9, but I know I dont really NEED it and I'd blow a ton of money on gas. I just really want a nice DD that I can depend on. It would be a very mild build for mainly cosmetics and comforts

No transmission issues. Haven't had any TC issues, even with the 249. I've got an oil leak and a little loss of torque on the low end. No issues towing or anything like that. Seriously, I'm a big fan of it. It is hard to find parts though. Which is why I was excited for a low mileage, clean version. So much so I was trying to figure out what I could scrape together and came up with only $1800 without selling a kidney

oh, it would definately be pampered. maybe throw on a body matched 5.9 grille and front bumper cover? that way I could get the fog down in the bumper and off the grille (dont like that look too much). Oh man, the wheels are turning already. I'm going to need a 2nd job

i believe the grill on the 93-95 and 96-98 are slightly different and aren't able to be switched out. Don't quote me on that, though...
