You do realize that he is probably talking about the 2003 Limited WJ 4.7 he has listed in his signature, not the ZJ right?

I agree they should have come off the line with some more height. Either way, to each their own on opinions, my dub is certainly NOT a minivan....

I don't think I could have run a bigger tire without trimming.

Gave it a wash and wax. But, more importantly, I replaced the bulbs behind my gauge cluster. It's great to see the temp and pressure again.

I'm well aware of what his profile says, read his signature, it says he has both a 97 ZJ with the D44a and a 03 WJ with the 4.7, which would mean another D44a in the rear.

Simple, pull off the trim piece behind the steering wheel (held on by snap clips). You will see two screws there that attach to the cluster. Remove those as well as the two on the top (the visor for the gauges) and wa-la, cluster is detached. Carefully pull it out and unplug the harness, then just flip over to see the sockets, they turn and come out.

I tried to PM you but your inbox is full.

mycreativename pretty much explained it how I would have. The 5 bulbs that backlight are #103 and are pretty much impossible to find unless you go to the dealer. they're about $3 each.

#74 (Sylvania) from any autoparts store will also work.
