Found the console that I had. It was Tuffy. I emailed them about a console for that Wagoneers and cherokee chiefs. It's Sunday so I don't expect a response back. Hopefully Monday though. I will post my findings.

I do like that interior. You have the advantage of bucket seats as well (I believe). I have a big ol' bench.

Ah yes.. I actually wish I had the front bench myself.. I can't find one around here tho.
Its -10 here today and I have no intentions or replacing that fuel filter until it gets back up to at least 20. So I have just watched Agnes sit in front of my place all day.

Also, I just did the oil change in her on Friday and went with 10-40... will that be bad for her since its winter??

You may notice higher oil pressure on start up. If you have a separate gauge. After a min or two the oil will heat up and everything will be fine. To answer your question simply, no it is not bad. I run the same weight in my 95 civic and it has 300k on it.

Tried replacing my fuel filter today but the one I bought at AutoZone was slightly different in size and fuel started spilling. Put the old back in and no spillage. Anyone recommend a certain brand?

Anyone here swap the gears out on the differentials themselves? Any links I should check out?

Agnes keeps dying out on me.. can my fuel filter be the culprit? Yesterday I tried replacing but ended up keeping the old one on. If I accidentally placed it in wrong can this be why the engine is running for a few blocks then keeps shutting off?
If you have time can u text me or post a pic of what nipple goes on top to the carb. 773 757 7413..
Thanks in advance

today i thought more about driving it, then realized i wont be home in time this evening to get it out of storage because i have a late estimate.

Oh well. I guess i could get it Friday afternoon, but i'll probably let it sit for a few more weeks.

Pics of your fuel filter? I want to make sure I have mine on right and figure out what else might be wrong and causing her to shut off after a few block's

saul....if you have the stock fuel filter, your return line needs to be at 12 o'clock. Right smack dab on top.

12 o'clock on the fuel return for the filter helps but it is not like the truck won't run if it is at, say 1 o'clock.

Today I installed my external CB speaker. Also, found an old starter in the attic. Took it to autozone, they bench tested it and it works fine. Put it in the spare parts container in the Jeep.
