Got my Eldorado calipers for the disc conversion on the sterling. Also ordered the e-brake parts from blackbirds.

Haa haa. Sorry for slow reply...away on business. The CRD has a "CAT" wich lowers NOX on our models. Plus we have not seen smog here since the industrial revolution and I live on the beach with clean fresh (and usually windy) air! Ive have never said that CRDs are better (although they are miles better on the gas) just that they are better for me as I could not afford to run a V8...as much as I would love an HO) Off roading on a medium level trail with a mate of mine I get about 20 mpg he gets under 10 on his non HO V8.....too rich for my pockets! You know the other guy does not get 26 to the US gallon (roughly 30 to the UK gallon) as thats way over what Jeep ever claimed brand new and most people never even get what Jeep claim on a std model let alone a modded one! Good luck with your search....been following your thread!

Levelled her up a bit.....she still sits nose down quarter of an inch (measures hub to fender) or so but Im much happier with the stance now. Now to see how long the rep/rep front shaft lasts at that level of lift! Im off road on Friday too!

Not a darn thing.



The world conspired to eat up my one free day a week. I'm going to have to take a mini vacation in order to get the front axle assembly completed. lol

On Friday: NEW SHOES! Went with the New Goodyear Adventure AT's w/ Kevlar at 245/65/R17, Installed Dynamax Muffler and Cat Back (welded in), repaired cracks in Cat - kept old Exhaust Tip; Removed Overland Rock Sliders - Plan to get them refinished - any suggestions on Paint type or Color?

Saturday: Drove up into Loyalsock Forest/Worlds End State Park for a weekend of Camping with my Girls and some friends- Gerty handled the Washed out roads with ease, even managed to find some mud.

Looks like the diff breather hose. Check where the top shock mount comes up through the wheel well and there should be a small black plastic barb there with a cap on the top.

What size is your leveling kit? I just put 3/4" spacers on mine above the 2.5" OME springs. Like you said, mine is down at the nose a slight bit, but looks ten times better then what it did before, and, if it wasn't for the spacers, I wouldn't have been able to fit the 265/70R17 Nittos under the front!

They are MOPAR....but they are the very heavy stainless version, not the feeble aluminium version I have seen on a couple of Wjs that are just to look pretty!

Yes he does. He's using an HHO kit. Read up about it and educate yourself before spouting off at the mouth calling someone a lyer.

Compared to a std WJ its lifted 1.75 in at the back and 3 in at the front.

It's the breather for the front differential. Originally there's a plastic attachment that slips over the hose and allows it to clip to the top of the driver's side shock to hold it up and in place.

It probably just fell down somewhere. Lots of times the clip gets broken when people or shops replace the shocks.
