The most recent new quirk she is pulling is the radio stopped working...can play cd's but nothing else. It's an aftermarket Pioneer so I'm just going to replace it with a newer one...I want Bluetooth and an usb port so I can stream my music from my phone through the Xj. Found one at work for about $80..
If you don't care about having a CD player, I've got one of these in my XJ and it actually is a pretty solid radio for the price.

So high revs at startup then it drops to normal after a few seconds?

Pulled the trigger on some 5.9 Hood Louvres last night. Probably paid to much. Had to. Jeep is going in for painting soon. Didn't want to hold off on the hood but do everything else. So today is Day 3 of Project Jeep Week. It is Boneyard Day. Getting the Snap On 3/8 Impact batteries charged, droplight charged, Dewalt sawzall batteries charged. Making a list and checking it twice. Going to get ugly. I don't do well in the heat and like I have said before I am older now and stuff like this beats me up pretty good. Thinking Day 4 will be a day of rest because Day 3 will beat the crap out of me. Hopefully they did not crush the Jeeps I saw on my last walk through. Going to spend all day, if necessary, in both boneyards, and get crazy. Plus who knows. They might have some new vehicles.

Looks like I'll be driving without the front swaybar for a day or two. That's the last thing to take care of and the axle swap is complete.

Welp drove it in to work today and I'm pretty sure the front diff is just toast, or at the very least it's in the toaster. I don't know if I did it, the mechanic did it, the death wobble did it, or what, but I don't think it's long for this world.

Possible vacuum leak. Check all your vacuum lines. Change the intake/header gasket recently?

Rotating assembly and Cam for a 4.5L stroker rebuild popped up on craigslist nearby. It's not quite the build I was planning but ~600 for the brand new rotating assembly (okay the crank is remachined, the rest is new) and matched crane cam is REALLY tempting.

As to the XJ itself...well mine got an alignment and I'm going to pick up the 5th rim for a full sized spare tomorrow.

Lifted, Locked, Stiffened
