picked up a Taurus fan at the JY today for some extra insurance in Dallas traffic + Dallas summer. figure I'll run 2 40 amp 5 pin relays, the relay off output of the high speed can power the low so they don't try to run at the same time. The low will be a 5 pin just so I only need one type of spare. The 160 amp Durango alt I've got in there should handle the extra load just fine, if it drags at idle I can always swap the XJ pulley onto it to act as a bit of an overdrive compared to the stock Durango one.

I'll trigger the low speed off of a sensor inserted into the upper rad hose like the 5.9 grands use and the high off the factory aux fan. Later on I may add an interrupt switch for both e fans in case of water crossings but at the moment I'm more concerned with DD use case which means zero driver interaction needed is the goal.

Just need to decide what temp low speed should kick on. I was thinking something around 195 to match the thermostat?

well that and if there needs to be a diode to prevent it acting as a generator when the wind spins it on the highway. Seems like that could play merry hell with relays when they open.

I took a 3/8 coupler nut and put it on the end of some all thread then put the nut in a vise and bent the all thread to make a longer J bolt for my 31 inch spare tire. I was able to use the wing nut etc. and get the 31 inch spare in without having to modify the seat or back hatch.

Yes, I wish they would have at least tried to turn it 180 and re balance it. It was the worst of the 5 so that is why it is in the spare.

Well I found myself a donor to fix the silver Jeep. Donor is another blue 00 XJ with a blown engine... idk why all these blue 00ís have blown engines, will be the third one I have bought. This one is very rust free and although the engine is blown, itís a factory 5 speed with the NV3550 trans. Also has almost new 30Ē tires on it which will go on my gfís new Jeep. So the silver Jeep may be getting a 5 speed swap along with the repairs. Not fully committed to that yet but I am definitely stripping all the parts for the swap out of this Jeep. Since itís the same year, everything is a direct bolt in. It will be a shame to cut up a super clean 00 5 speed, but itís good to a good cause, I swear. Definitely got the wheels turning...

I know some of you guys are interested in toy Jeep replica type stuff .
Anyway , I came across this site that seems to have a fair share :

https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Listing...uyerPrefs=true

Type Jeep in the search and they'll come up . It happens to be an auction site .
I never knew it existed .

Well I picked up a Detroit two days ago. It was disassembled in a box. I was told it has 3.55's on it in a Dana 30 and the gears let go. Got it home and started looking it over. It's actually a high ratio carrier.

You can see here itís next to a high ratio open carrier with a lockrite and 4.88ís



And this is next to an open carrier that had 3.55ís



So that means I can put my 4.56's on it and it can go in my hp30 which was kind of exciting. This morning I spend some time on the carrier and was able to get it assembled. Kind of a pain with one person. Trying to balance the rod and the locker and not let anything slip out of place while you tighten the but. But it worked out and itís ready to accept a rig gear now! Oh, and the est part? It was free!

Yeah... thatís my Jetta. The Jeeps accept the Jetta because they know that little car is the only reason they can be worked on for more than a day at a time haha
