Here's a link http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/je...irmed-1234621/

It's only for early tj's with the 15 gallon tank.

There are others if you search "tj gas tank mod". All you do is reach in & cut the smaller hose next to the filler hose inside the tank. I used a pvc pipe cutter tool which made an easy, clean cut.

Chive on

Put the taillights in today...Pics tomorrow.

I'll probably do the reverse lights early next week when the license plate bolts come in...so I'm only messing with the wiring once.

Slight rant:

I bought some JJs off another member in November...usps lost them in transit & delivered an empty box...

I bought some new JJs through Amazon the other day (with Christmas gift cards) & they arrived today

...well, one did; they sent me one correct one & one that was not. How hard is it for me to get JJs...damn

Still waiting on getting the money back from usps too.

Good news is that Amazon is over-nighting the correct JJ & I don't have to wait until they get the wrong one back

My rear lower bushings have visible movement & I'm tired of the jeep pulling when I let off the gas

Finally managed a "conservative" around town tank since installing the cowl intake. Got 16.8mpg...so where it should be.

I did get some water in the engine the other day after all night of heavy, blowing rain & into the morning.

It started fine, but after about 20secs I started getting a rough idle. I pulled back in the driveway & revved it slightly to 1500rpm slowly...if it was going to stall, I was going to let it & get the water out...but it cleared up fast.

That being said, I've gotten water in the engine with:
Oem intake/no hood louvers
Cai/no hood louvers
Cai/hood louvers
Oem intake/hood louvers
Now with the cowl intake...

All the times except early last summer have been ON ROAD, not splashing in water or anything, just heavy, heavy rain/road spray etc...& never enough to stall (just the time in the summer)

...I had planned & still am, on adding some type of shield to block the heavy rain blowing into the cowl. The scoop blocks a lot of it, but in FL heavy rain, it still manages to blow into the scoop

Water pretty much has to follow this direct path to get the filter wet...but apparently it will happen:
