You can't beat 'em! Engine temps are already 5-10 degrees cooler.

Newest mod is a upgraded np231 shift linkage-

The kit is designed for the AW4 auto transmission but I made it work by trimming the threaded rod and making a shifter extension bracket-

Ditched the oem shifter nutserts and added larger 1/4x20 bolts with lock nuts-

Here'e a before picture-

With the new linkage I no longer use the trans or floor bracket-



I may snag a video going through the ranges, with the shifter extension the throw is slightly shorter which is neat and the shifts feel nice and firm!

Possibly the cheapest hd xj 231 linkage out there and yet its beef! I need to take it on the highway to see if it eliminated the t-case shifter rattling. I would constantly have to push the handle forward or pull it back a hair to silence it. Now there's virtually no play in the shifter/linkage so I should be good to go.

Didn't think I needed hood vent drip pans but the rain said otherwise. After the TPS and IAC sensors shorted out I picked up some aluminum -


Went ahead and did an AC delete while I was under the hood -


Badlands winched crapped out however it was under warranty. Decided to run cable for now as the synthetic rope tried to melt on me. Added some tow hooks as well -
