When my battery went bad I had some issues. Seemed like it was gonna be a big nightmare and then all was fixed with a new battery

Took off my front driveshaft to confirm that it was the thing making a huge clattering racket underneath there. Nice and quiet now. I need to measure it for a replacement. I'm thinking about going with a kit from Carolina Driveline.

'99 WJ Limited 4x4, 4.0L, Patriot Blue Metallic, IRO 3" springs, track bar, and rear sway bar links, Doetsch Tech 8000 shocks, Tenneco steering stabilizer, Carolina Driveline double-cardan front drive shaft.

I don't think that works anymore. Our current computer controlled vehicles are a bit more picky than they were some years ago when it comes to voltage.

You're right, a bad battery can cause some really screwy things to happen, even with the alternator pushing voltage.

I've seen certain accessories stop working randomly (windows, wipers,etc). I've also seen rough running symptoms as a result.

Did this ! Got fed up with all the scratches in the corners where the PO was not carefull getting stuff in and out of the boot (OK trunk!). Also a small area of paint was lifting so it covered that. Will "black" the rubber bit with something to blend it in a bit better too.

And this!, as I alway thought the "diffuser" styled bit should be black and it loses my hitch a bit (visually at least!).

Ignore they slightly raggy edges as it was difficult to cut even with a new blade. I have carbon edging pin to finish it but ran out of time as I wanted to take thie pics before the light went.

Will be doing the over rider style bits on the front bumper (Ltd) when I get more time as they seem to have picked up more than there fair share of stone chips. Mocked it on "paint" and I think it will look OK....easy to peel if I dont like it.

Its 3m carbon, exterior grade with the tiny grooves in the back to let the air out so you dont get bubbles even if you apply it dry. Very stretchy so good on the curves.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
