Well I agree. Many months back when I buried it, the boot was full of sand from that I didn't find until a month later.

Tryied to chase down this limp mode issue since Monday... got in her belly and checked all the connections and TV cable... still kind of clueless unless it comes to dropping the pan and diggin thru it...

Failure is the chance to begin again, with increased intelligence... 100

Had to R & R the passenger side door and front bumper because of some sliding around I did this past winter. I decided to change my front to the 04 design. Also, I installed a set of Hella 500s that I had laying around, running 100w H3 bulbs. Now to chase down those inner fender push pins that I broke takin her apart.

Just pull a fuse and either get a special fuse holder from auto zone that allows you to run a wire off of it or just wrap your power wire around one of the little legs. I did mine to the Un switched cigarette lighter. Then ground it to a screw somewhere in metal or back to your battery for least interference.

And if you loose the bottom part (front ones), so it will drain. but for the rear (boots are down), there is no solution!!

That being said, the Bilsteins on my wife's WJ is running the boots and I periodically check them every few months. So far so good. I decided to run the boots on them due to Rubicon Express denying a warranty on one of their monotubes due to a rusted shaft.

Admittedly her WJ sees more road than dirt.

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff
