Hopefully replacing all six spark plugs doing an oil change and sea foaming the engine if the funds are all there. Has anybody got any input on using sea foam in the motor. Any real noticeable increase in fuel economy and horse power. I know how to do just wanna know if its worth doing.

You may want to try splicing the amp trigger wire to the ignition power wire. I had the same problem and my amp was not turning on. I used the PAC-ROEM converter.

On the way home, it popped a code... P0159... But I'm fairly certain I just replaced that sensor. Bah..cleared it, and we'll see. Then decided to wash it even though it was like 45 degrees, getting dark, and sprinkling a bit.

If you can't google it, you really shouldn't be looking it up.

Wj woes gotta love them! I tried washing the Wj early one morning on the way to the ski resort and I iced it all over! Felt like iceman shooting the jeep with soapy water that instantly froze! priceless Hahaha should of grabbed a pic. Get her checked out, we love this jeep but we have our fair share of things to replace/fix as well

The more I read, the more I see it! I kinda don't mind it though. I'm having fun...for now. Thankfully they're somewhat primitive compared to most junk these days.

And which might those wires be? I am not too technical sound on all the wires. I just know when you get the new harness you color coordinate.

Welp about to get my 6.5 IRO lift. I've been holding back until I could find extra change to get tires. While working on an old 71 ford today, my friend offered me a set of 35" BFG MT's for free cause he couldn't use them on any of his trucks. They have almost all the tread left on them too.

Had to put the mtrs back on. I put a lift on my buddies WK, and when we mounted his new treadwrights one of them had a hole in the sidewall. Of course it happened on the very last tire to be mounted, so instead of putting his original tires back on (which would require 3 more dis-mount/mounts) I just let him use my street tire hankook at's.

After getting the lift on, we had to do a little grinding to get my wheels to fit around his calipers, nothing major though.

Pics...

After





Today must have be Grand Cherokee day at my shop. We also got a customers wj in for repairs. Its running a 4" Rough Country lift.

Since the WJ has been in the shop for a blown head gasket I've been worried about the condition of the heads.

Shop called me yesterday, said they were picking them up today and the machine shop had told them the heads didn't have any cracks and were in good shape. I'm worried about the valve seats, but we'll see.

If the heads are good, what are the chances the valve seats aren't? It only overheated once...

The machine shop checks all that stuff. No worries.
