Do you guys know if it will cost more to insure a 89 jeep? I heard that if they cant find it on KBB (KBB stops at 1990) then its harder to insure and possibly more expensive.

Find out who did the engine work. There is a lot more involved in stroking an engine than most garage mechanics know about. See if he did it or a company, warranty, etc.

i didnt know about that site, nice.




Anyone know of a good/cheap place to get doors painted. i just picked up a set of half doors and would like to get them painted to match my jeep's color.

If it costs more than 150, i will probably just rattle can them black.

I'd probably just go ahead and rattle can them. Even old Earl is gonna cost more than $150.

When I put my kit on it started idling high after a day or two; turned out to be a bad MAP sensor. I called and Howell sent me a new one.

Hook it up to an OBD-1 scanner and check for codes. I have one if you want to stop by some time. I'm in Clairemont.
