Found out why my electric fan isn't working.... my mechanical fan ate the wires:

The red arrows point to the wires connected to the fan motor. They are currently about 1 inch long.




I was hoping I was just going to have to replace a fan relay, but now it looks like I need a new fan and harness.


Anyone parting out a WJ and have an electric fan/harness/shroud that they want to get rid of?

I bought it a a commuter friend for my new job.... 2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo w/ premium package



And so it didn't feel left out some new Custom Splice 3/8"x85ft rope for the Mile Marker since I broke the stock rope last trip.


Also blew a brake line on my trip to the job interview on the NJ Parkway (still got the job....woot.) so we fixed that after gettingt owed to my brothers shop and while he was at it changed the rear axle seal as well. Nice to have brakes again.


Yea, it was bad

Attempted to get my reverse lights working one last time by replacing the neutral safety switch... Well, couldn't find where it was for the life of me, got online and finally found out that the one the auto parts store gave me was the wrong one (no wonder I kept getting so frustrated when none of the pig tails I was pulling matched up. Finally put everything I undid in the attempt to fix them and just decided to put back up lights on the roof. Problem solved.

Next project is probably going to be replacing my shocks. Has anyone replaced the rear shocks on here. I heard their much more difficult from the front shocks.

I LOVE MY JEEP MORE THAN MY GIRLFRIEND :p

Nah, have a breaker bar ready for the lower bolts if necessary. A gorilla did the lower bolts on mine.

On the bottom, the outside nuts are welded. The inner is the bolt. On the uppers it is just a bolt (you can't get at the nut).

Torque them down to spec and you will be fine.

I think they're easier than the front. Just my opinion

Definitely easier than the front. Once you've done them a couple times it only takes about 45 minutes. (For me anyway) I work slowly and I didn't yhink it was that bad.

No I just found it to be more of a pain due to the top bolt on the shock.

No, you need a compressor if you are replacing the coil springs. Nothing if you are replacing the shocks.

That's how I looked at it. It can be a huge pain in the *** to get to those top bolts, or even find them your first time doing it. The backs are very straight forward.

Yeah with two people it wasn't bad but I can imagine by oneself...it can be pretty obnoxious wih it spinning.
