I took a little time off from the MJ due to my work schedule and the holidays, but starting today I've got the next 10+ days or so to devote to it. I've got a nice little list of stuff to do-we'll see how much I can get done. One item on the list is the rear shocks which came in today...

Question about the carpet you bought. Is it molded at all or is it just a roll? I have a friend who can get me automotive carpet for free, but it will just be in a roll and not specifically molded for the truck.

Kabo, correct me if I'm wrong but you bought the same carpet kit I did and they are both from ACC. And to answer your question, yes, it is molded carpet. However it was a pain to install. The molds were good, but all 4 sides are left long by ACC so lots of trimming and fitting is required. Overall I'm happy with it.

P.S. - KABO - WE NEED SOME UPDATES ON YOUR TRUCK!

Well, if yours was molded and a pain to install, I can't imagine a flat piece of carpet would be any easier.

It's the same kit woodkrawler bought, and he's correct it's way long and it's gonna be a pain to install. I spent today on a creeper with the pressure washer cleaning the bottom of the bed.

The load sensing valve is next on the list along with the '99 WJ master cylinder and booster. If anyone plans on using this mc/booster combo you'll need one of this spacers for proper pedal height.



You can pull one from a '95 or '96 XJ.

Thanks, but dude the decals were two tone tan. I've seen black/gray ones on Ebay, so replacements are still a possible option.

Lookin' good

I was unaware of the need for the spacer? Please enlighten me. I'm using the MC and booster from my '99 XJ. I just bolted it in place of the MJ unit and the pedal location seems to be normal? Maybe it's because I'm using the XJ pedal hanger and dash brackets as well?

The pedal hanger etc. must make the difference, without it I believe the '97+ booster push rod is too long. With a stock config. like mine, the spacer is used to run a dual diaphram booster, either from a 95-96 XJ or the WJ, and maintain the stock pedal height.
