Your wife helps you with that?! My wife still tries to go to full service gas stations because she doesn't like pumping gas.

I did get her to help wax it once though!

Ordered Bilstein 5100's to replace my old 5100's...also ordered a Bilstein 5100 steering stabilizer and Hella 500's to go on my front bumper. Also got a set of lower spring retaining clips. Also just placed my order for a set of Nitto Trail Grapplers.

Did you try to warranty them? They have a lifetime warranty.

Never really thought about that. I got them 2 years ago thru IRO when I ordered my lift. After the first winter the zinc finish on them corroded so I buffed them down and clear-coated them. I cant stand them now just because I'm very OCD.

Oh yeah I'm sure I'll have no problem selling them to someone who wants them off my hands. Theyre perfectly fine and have had absolutely no issues with them lol

Pressure sensor appeared original and the o-rings had shrunk a bit so at least I won't have that to worry about later.

Timing sucks since I am on a 2-day trip to Mojave tomorrow and Thursday, then leave for a week in Shanghai on Monday. Will order the replacement solenoid pack before I leave and put it in after I get back from China. Only question is whether I do the OD/Lock Up Solenoid as well as the solenoid pack - don't really want to drop the coin, but also really hate being inside the trannny.
I did a solenoid on my xj, very easy, but make sure you replace the right one throwing the code.
