They are happy now, but I don't have any tunes. I may have my priorities all wrong. It should be the Jeep first, me second, the kids somewhere down the list.

I did mount my sound bar, but I need to run the wire harness down the roll bar under the padding. Sound's like a PIA but do-able.

Have you been doing any modding lately?

All are welcome, whether standing around commenting or helping.

I know there is some wheeling going on this same day but this is the only weekend day I have available for the next few weeks and I want to get this stuff done. Maybe if we hop to it early we can get in a trip to CC or LW later in the day.

Details to follow.


Sweet. I will be there to help/get in the way.

That sounds like a fun weekend.

I've been working on my sound "system" for the past couple weeks. Gonna hook it all up this coming weekend. When I'm done, I'll probably lower my Jeep and roll down the street bumpin' 2Pac.

Anybody need a neon sign that say's "California Dreamin'"?


No takers? I'm tossing it into the dumpster tomorrow. Seems a shame but I have no use for it.

It looks like my leak may actually be from my front diff - and blowing up and coating everything...that is why I couldn't find the source of the leak up there... One of the guys at ORW took one look and said it seemed like gear oil...and it makes sense because they just re-geared and had that all apart...and they put on my new ARB diff covers....so that is actually a good thing because it means they will have to take care of it and it isn't some new broken thing causing extra expense! I'll update you guys in a couple of days when I get it back - thanks for the help trying to figure it out!

Since it was the front diff I wonder what was causing the lack of power. Think gear oil got where it wasn't supposed to belong?

well just got back from the smog station and the YJ failed AGAIN!!! I am getting really tired of this. after it failed last time I replaced the O2 sensor, the cat, and the muffler and it still failed. this time it only failed the high speed test on NO. Max is 875 and my YJ came in at 1028.

Anybody got any ideas?

What were the other readings? High NOx is usually from a lean condition IIRC or a faulty EGR. The EGR could be a bad diaphragm or a vacuum leak somewhere.

If it failed evap then I bet you have vacuum hose problems, which can cause a lean condition

X2

The lean will cause your NOx to be through the roof.
