What did that run you?

Edit - I see the other thread now, thanks.

Owned it for 4 years now and got my first code last night bringing a friend to the shop to get his truck. P0700. I'll check the speed sensors when I feel like crawling under there to check them. I love being able to look up advice and solutions on this forum.

Those feels

I'm thinking in the next few weeks that I'll be sending my Dorman one back and pick up a Mopar one off Amazon.

Got some ATF+4 and topped up the transmission (took almost the whole quart ), got an under the hood light bulb, and a Stant oil filler cap to replace the broken Mopar one

Ok I guess, although I really have nothing to compare to, my 99 WJ was stock as is my 98 XJ.

I bought it for $2800, changed the TCase for $500 and changed the fluids in both Diffs...

I'm in it for less than $3500, everything works, no rust at all (rare here in Montreal), and no leaks of any fluids.

Still have the 99 for what parts I can take off her... whatever I can't use I will sell (everything worked on that one too, just too much rust on body).

Looking forward to sprucing it up a little...

Swapped my Addco rear bushings for grease-able Energy suspension ones. Was planning on just drilling mine with some zerks but came across these for $11. No more squeaky squeaky.

I hope you didn't have a warranty. One guy was told that mud will make the TC fail :-)
