No problem. It took me awhile to find it (lowes and Home Depot didn't have it) but I got
it at a sears hardware store. It's the 3/4" size. Most seem to use the smaller 1/2".

Thanks for the kind words.

Yes! Transmission is now out of limp mode.

Of course I always get bad luck when fixing things so the sensor part of the old plug broke off inside the hole. I had to drill it out which kinda bored the hole a bit. Oh well I guess I was peeved but it's all good now... For now anyways

Reset the ecu. Now it still says abs is messed up thankfully no problems with the transmission. Going to need that checked out soon also. I miss my (good) awd

Yeah I definitely like the look of 3/4 inch better. Do you know how big the actual sheet was? Like 12" x 48" or something ?

I'll do you one better and show you the actual picture. 24" x 24". I bought two sheets in case I messed up and then I wanted to try and tackle the lower grille as well. It's really annoying me down there. I haven't really tried to fab something up but you've reminded me again on how much I hate the opening down there, haha.

Oh today, I swapped out my $15 eBay catch can with a Billet Technology one that I've had laying around for close to 6 months. I have a whole bunch of their underhood goodies that I need to put on as well.



image-118405986.jpg

In case anyone is wondering: Billet Technology is having a 40% off sale tomorrow from 12-1 pm est. 35% off from 1-2 est and 25% off from 2 pm on.

Would be an ideal time to pick up any of their stuff that you've been wanting.

When I bought my stuff months ago, I think I had a 30% off or something.

Their shipping charges are exceptionally high though.

Here's the link to the sale and coupon codes.

I can't tell from the pics...also, would any of their wheel center caps fit moabs?

Awesome, thanks! Yeah I've also been toying with that idea too. Here's a link to a how-to I found but it's for an '08: http://www.**********.org/f187/how-t...8-wk-2679.html

I kinda like the idea of 3/4 inch for the grill going vertically and doing something like 1/2 inch going horizontally for the lower valence. Good luck, lemme know how it goes!

Edit: replace ******** with jeep garage

In the picture above, I have mine held in by a zip tie and the hoses. Around some random skinny pipe that I have no idea what it does. It held my eBay catch can pretty sturdy for all of those months.

I was looking at their brackets but I'm going to just get a bolt or something and mount it to the strut bar or firewall. In all honesty, it's pretty secure the way I have it right now.

I also might just fab up a random piece of steel like Omelet did with his. No way I'm spending $20+ on one of their mounts. I'm thinking about their braided hoses but you can see like an inch of the hoses if you keep the engine cover on, so I don't know if it's worth it or not.

Thanks jjt

So I've been talking to the owner of ablaze grilles hoping they had one for 05-07s but they don't. I think it might be too hard to make one myself bc I can't find a single sheet wide enough. I'm going to take the measurements and give them to him. Maybe we can get a group buy going or something?

Yea I'm thinking a $5 bracket from lowes would suffice...i don't keep my cover on so I'm contemplating the nicer hoses but don't think they're worth the money. I'm prob going to get a catch can and the whole under the hood kit, and maybe the throttle body cover
