Thanks for all of the info on fuel fittings guys. I already bought the fittings that Clint linked to earlier. I might go ahead and pick up an AN flare tool.

So now Superior says that my radiator is at the local post office and might be delivered today or tomorrow. What happened to last Friday!?

You don't need a flare for the fitting I linked to. It is a compression fitting.

I wish. If I had my harness and PCM back from Wayne I wouldn't be far off. By the time I get them back it should damn near drivable.

Clint, what did you do for your intake? I have been reading on them a lot. $200 is a lot for something that im just going to hack up. I thought about piecing one together from intaketubes.com

I used some pieces from Spectre. They have a bunch of different sized bends that worked well with my radiator hoses. I also used their enclosed filter element and will eventually run it into the cowl when I get rid of the factory PCM.

Cool that looks good. I measured the throttle body at 4" and the MAF at 3.75". Sound right? I'm working on parts shopping to put my own together here shortly.

For those of you that used the Lokar shifter, I need some help. In Park the shifter arm just barely misses my t case shifter bracket. I cant get it shifted past reverse before it hits the shoulder of a mounting point for the old linkage or whatever it is.

Like an idiot I removed the shifter arm without marking its original orientation but I dont see how moving the arm would help. Like Whyj said "Dear Lokar, your instructions suck"

Man that sucks you are dealing with that shifter issue. One of those things where it takes you 4 hours to set it up!!!

Yeah buddy I think ill stick with the stock auto shifter set up and aftermarket cable!!!!

Who's local post office? Yours or theirs? Hmmm

The TJ auto shifter will work on the 4l60? Did you track down a 4wd one? I need to figure out a shifter cable as well. Did you talk to Vito and Tony? I need my damn radiator!
