Installed a new radio, JVC KD-A615 with SWI-jack. Works great and looks good. Also bought new rear brake pads and rotors, stuff to do a rear diff fluid change, new axle shaft bearing and seal. Now i just need a warm snow free day

Did you put a xenon bulbs in the high and low beams or just low?

Do you have any pics of how it failed? I did that fix to my pass side front last spring, and it has held ever since. I keep wondering how long it will last though.

Yea, I will get some posted. What is failing on it is the cable jumps the pullywheel at the top, then binds up the cable against the frame. I will update my post with the pics shortly or tonight

I checked that. Nothing rubbing. I took apart the brakes and cleaned off the mud and leaves. Still does it. I wonder if the new pads are making smell. They are mopar pads. I know that doesn't mean much. It could be all the gear lube that did leak out, but I cleaned that all off good when I replaced my seals. That is when I did my pads too. I will look into it more this week at work.

4.0 & 4.7 non-HO both use the same filter. See wjjeeps for the Puralator longer option and cross recerence it to the Fleetguard.

I'm doing the fuel filter (inline canister), not the fuel pump assembly... It doesn't look like more than a 10 minute job. Am I in for a surprise? Only reason for changing it is I still have the OEM, 11 years and 165K miles later.





The CPS looks like a "fun" little job considering I can't even see it from up top, until I remove some stuff.
