WJ FAQ - Help contribute here!
Do you have something you think should be added to the FAQ?

Whether it be an existing post or thread, or something small (like a WJ is 99-04), or what ever, post it up in here! After a while I'll consolidate and organize it into something more concise.

To start off, there are two links to check out:
1) The Ultimate WJ Grand Cherokee Buyers Guide
2) WJ Suspension Info Thread

WJ's Equipped with Quadra-Trac II or Quadra-Drive REQUIRE Mopar-only 247 Fluid in the transfer case! There is NO substitute.

I was actually just searching on how to do a tie rod repair and found a complete video where he actually used a WJ

Might be useful to have. Someone with knowledge might want to validate the process but it appears pretty straight forward

Budget Boost Write up wouldn't be a bad addition. We get a lot of questions about that.

Arlo's Suspension Info Should be in there

This is a good pic.

Thats all I have right now. I'm sure more ideas will come to me.

EDIT: Told ya.

Im just pulling a ton of stuff out of old FAQ stuff.

These are the ones I followed:

Tranny fluid flush/change -
Dash removal write up (for heater core replacement) -

For the heater core (could be used for blend door as well) I kept a bunch of zip-lock bags handy. As I worked through the procedure and hit a step where there small parts/bolts/screws/washers, etc I would place them in a bag. Write the step they were associated with on the bag with a sharpie and note on the procedure there was a bag of parts for that step. Once I had the heater core in, I simply worked backwards through the procedure grabbing the corresponding bag of parts as I went. When I finished I had no spare parts, everything was properly connected and worked great.

I'm not saying steel content from another forum...... but this has some good information

straty1987 01-31-2011 09:28 PM

here is what i remember off the top of my head. i know i a have a few more like adding a, flasher relay repair, tail light repair, small emission leak help,

dual control blen dor no dash remove install writeup with pics
has info on the new kits as well


info on how to replace TC output shaft seal

mopar part number is 4897298AA for the 247 SEAL, rear OUTPUT SHAFT.

1) drive the rear of jeep up on a ramp and chock the front tiers
2) put on the parking break on, because I will have to remove the rear drive shaft and "park" does not work when the drive shaft is disconnected.
3) Drain transfer case fluid
4) mark the line across the pinion yoke so it will be installed right later, then Remove rear drive shaft and slide it out of the t-case output. oil might leak out so keep a oil pan near by and keep the TC output shaft for getting dirty or damaged.
5) The old seal is now exposed. Hook it with a "seal puller" tool and pry it out of there. Careful you are prying on the seal and not digging into the aluminum inside the housing. It should come out somewhat easily.
6) Tap the new seal in place. You can do this easily with just a rubber mallet and block of wood
7) Re-install drive shaft. Careful there is no dirt on the surface that is to seal with the t-case.
8) fill the TC with new fresh fluid

if its a 247 only use fluid form the dealer


PS hose leak on 4.7
4.7L Hydraulic Power Steering Hose is a dealer only part
part number 5019708AE

also need the right fluid from the dealer MS9602


add a 3.5mm aux jack if you have a cd changer, cost under $10

-from radio shack pick up item # 274-0246 which is A 1/8" Stereo Panel-Mount Phone Jack $2.71 with tax (NY)
- need a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male cable to connection your device to the jack. i found one at a 99 cent store for $1.08 with tax
-Then get seem basic stereo wire or even 18 gauge wire and finger out were you to mount the 3.5mm jack.
-Cut 4 cables the same lengthen that it take to get from were you want the jack to the back of you head unit and leave some play room and one other cable for the ground
- Remove the cover around the head unit and the head unit
- following the schematic you have to find audio out left and right which is 1 & 5 on 8 pin side and 1 & 6 on the 10 pin side
- since the 10 pin side is going to the head unit we will use that one, so cut wires 1 & 6 left and right audio
- then you wire it up like this

line 1 that goes to head unit connect to pin 2 on the 3.5 mm jack
line 6 that goes to head unit connect to pin 5 on the 3.5 mm jack
line 1 that goes toward CD changer connect to pin 3 on the 3.5 mm jack
line 6 that goes toward CD changer connect to pin 4 on the 3.5 mm jack

- ground the wire going to 1 on the 3.5mm jack to the body or pin 7 on the 10 pin side
-tape it good or shrink wrap

when you select the CD change and plug something to the 3.5mm jack it will play what is connect to the 3.5mm jack. when you unplug the jack it will go back to playing the CD.

How about np247 teardown info. Also linkage modifications for doing a np247 to NP 231 swap.

ZJ but still helpful

billzcat1 02-02-2011 08:38 PM

Here's a complete parts fiche for the 2001 WG Grand Cherokee. Not PERFECT and some of the info is not pertinent to US models, but it is helpful for seeing exploded views of systems and is 99% correct for OEM part numbers.

We don't have TWO digit codes like in that thread, and WJJEEPS.COM has a page that has all the codes...

Good call on the state laws though :cheers2:

straty1987 02-06-2011 08:30 PM

my bad,

check engine by
Turn the ignition key to ON position then turn it back to off. Repeat three times in succession. (ON/OFF/ON/OFF/ON)

The time now is 12:00 PM.
