Installed a 2000 XJ intake manifold on my 98 tj. Wasnt too hard. Only had to extend amd solder one sensor and the vacuum line i rerouted. Other than that, bolted right up and runs great. The newer design was said to give 15 hp but i cant really tell although the exhaust has a bit deeper tone. Had to replace anyway so figured why not get the newer design...

Spray some WD40 on the rear rubber bump stops and use some Channel lock pliers to pull the rubber jounce out. It helps if you use a floor jack under the frame to get some gaps opened up on your rear springs. Once I used this method it almost seemed to easy after my first struggles. Good luck.

I would spray some PB Blaster on the top of the bolt for the bump stops as well. Mine were pretty seized up so hit it up a couple of times prior to starting to reduce your effort in getting the bolt out once you remove the jounce.

Hope the new tie rod end and alignment solve your problem...

Just FYI my steering components have over 250k driven and whatever the PO towed it behind his motorhome...
I only replaced one tierod end on mine due to a split boot a few months ago...

Well, the other day/evening. pull in to fill up, turn off jeep......pay for gas.....get back in jeep.....no start. Thankfully Kmart (within walking distance) carries diehard......unfortunately no platinum.......had to get gold just to get jeep home. Maybe next time platinum.

Battery had been in there at least 4 years (when I bought it). Knew it was going.....just procrastinated long enough to do it in 15-20 degree temps at a gas station instead of my garage. Guess Ill get it an inspection sticker today since it expired in December.

I had to triple check research, make a couple runs to parts and hardware store, and fab/modify some tools, so it turned into a full day. Aside from that I would probably budget 4 hours minimum. A pro on the clock could do in 2 or less.

The rebuild kit I used is Dana, Part # D/S708203... at 4WP, $74.99.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.
