Took mine to the car wash today to finally wash down all the salt. Road workers are using salt like crazy and driving 100 miles every day mostly on highway made my black dub almost white

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Cut with a cut off wheel, grind smooth with an angle grinder, then a 40-60 grit flap wheel, then sander with 100 grit pad, and then sander with 220 grit pad. Mine are so smooth they feel like they are supposed to be like that from the factory. I am going to trim mine more soon. Can never have enough tire clearance IMHO.

BBK will fit but $300 for an extra 2mm is a steep price to pay. You could port your own or pay someone about $100 to port and polish it for you.

I used a jigsaw with a fine metal cutting blade to cut it. Gives you lots of control and cuts it like butter and leaves a pretty smooth edge. Then a little emery cloth to take any thing off. Painted and finished off with door edge guard.

At 144k, took 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.7 L into a mechanic buddy of mine.
Radiator hoses, flush and fill, tranny filters (both), flush and fill, fuel filter (old one original), oil pressure sending unit (old one fluctuating wildly), Differential drain and reseal, spark plugs, wires, distributor, serpentine belt, and shocks. $600 parts, $800 labor. A lot, but less than three payments on the new Wrangler Rubicon I lust after.

Running great, and I believe my fuel mileage has increased by about 7%.

Ready to hit the trails in Colorado this summer!

Haven't done it yet... but later on today I'll be hauling my 86 Fourtrax to ride at my buddy's place.



At 6'1" it's kinda small, but I love the thing.

Jesus your buddy charged you $800 in labor? I know that is quite a bit of work but he charged you 10 hours of labor at $80 an hour.

Not to mention he told you he changed parts that the jeep does not come equipped with. No wires or distributor on WJ's. Doesn't matter if its the I6, V8, or high output. They all have coil packs.
