I like that Boostwerks Engineering shift linkage . It seems like a worthwhile upgrade. Does anyone have an actual experience with it? I see at the very bottom of the page it says if your XJ is lifted, it requires some extra hardware for an additional 8 bucks and I'm curious what the extra hardware consists of.

got a lot of things fixed. and it has been like 2 weeks since i have driven it.
i replaced the entire brake system front and rear , new carrier bearings in the front, new hubs in the front, and lower control arm bushings.
i also added some new electrical accessories
finally got around to wiring my led bar. and i had a guy put in a starter button that over rides the NSS

I think they assume you have a tcase drop

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

That's what I got out of it. On the auto trans one there was a dropdown if you had a t case drop and it had an $8 option if you did.

My rear bumper is at a FedEx store a couple miles from me, gonna pick that up tomorrow. Was supposed to get it yesterday but FedEx ****ing sucks and will NEVER leave me anything without a signature and the local driver is a complete dick. Tried to leave him a note for my last package with a waiver and signature and he just tore the damn thing up and left the "you weren't home" slip again on my door with the signature area crossed out. **** them, I'm not driving 30+ minutes out to their depot to pick something up. Just leave the **** at my door like UPS does. I live on a god damn farm off a private road, no ones going to steal my ****.

I'm pretty sure there is a way to formally request that they just leave stuff. I know every carrier leaves stuff on my porch. Even unwrapped tires lol

The only way I've found with FedEx is to have them hold it at a FedEx store. Closest one to me is about 8 miles and that beats the the hell out of 30 or more to the complete opposite end of Richmond. Still, it's totally out of my way.

You can schedule a time for them to deliver but you have to pay extra. The driver here comes before noon and the only day I'm home before then is Sundays.

Yeah, the location hold and signing a note are your only options but the driver here is a dick and refuses to leave anything without a signature. Sorry I actually work for a living, just leave my **** like every other delivery service.

Yeah I've had the same problem with FedEx. I hate them more than both UPS and the USPS, which says a lot because I really hate the USPS.

Maybe your driver got burned by leaving something. I think FedEx drivers are independent contractors and if stuff goes missing it's on them, not FedEx.

Why not just short the NSS ?

And , agreed . Fed Ex just plain sucks for the private sector . I've heard that they 'prefer' business delivery , but that may be gossip .

1995 Cherokee Country . Gone , but , not forgotten .

Goes around , comes around .
