Thanks for the advice! I have mixed coolant/water 50/50 in my 97 TJ, but I have read in a few other Chrysler manuals that they don't recommend mixing water in with the coolant, so I was a little confused. Thanks for setting the record straight.
On top of the coolant issue, the trasfer case drop brackets moved my transmission down around 1 inch, so now I am having problems shifting into 2nd, 4th, 6th and reverse (due to the angle of the transmission and the stick). The console was broken by the shop that installed the lift and said that if they didn't break the console, the gears listed above wouldn't be able to engage, and therefore, it is Rubicon Express' fault for the design of the trasmission drop, not theirs.
On top of the problems listed above, I no longer can shift into 4 low. Today was supposed to be a happy day (3 years in the making), but is clearly a bad day for me.
I, for one, do not believe for a second that a company would put out a product that required the installer to break the factory console
and remain in business for long. God, I get so pissed off when I hear about s*** like this...it's their fault, whether they want to admit it or not. They did the breaking, RE did not. End of discussion.
Also, if the Jeep was not overheating when you took it in, and it is now...well, that should tell you pretty clearly when
the problem occurred. There's no telling what they could have done, or what they might have just cut and moved out of the way in order to get the job "done." I think your fan shroud might be at issue, though. It could be binding up the fan, as others have suggested.
I'd not take this lying down. If they don't make the situation right (refund of part of their labor charge, new console, repair any associated problems) then you make sure that everyone in your area knows who NOT to take their vehicle to for repair/install work. Sorry you had that happen to you, man.
