I wouldn't want to be around anybody and give it to them. People just need to be responsible. I do the same thing when I get the flu. 37,000 people in the US have died from that this year and they don't close the country for that?



p.s. Everyone stay safe.
I tip my hat to you sir. I'm also glad you made it through! Woot!!

Growing up in NYC as a kid in the '60's there was always the crazy guy on the corner with a piece of card board on a string hung around his neck saying "The End Is Near".
Wondering why they are not out there now considering that they might be right. LOL.

Luke95 Started looking at building a skid off the crossmembers. Do you guys think 3/16 will be enough or should I go with like 3/8? Also I have located a 4.8 in my area with 132 k on it coupled with a nv3500 for 1000 so I may go grab that and start my ls swap.

No driving after 11pm now either, unless it's for work purposes. Another reason to hate things produced in China.

Of course that was before I put the mat in and can't get at them now.
I've always figured if I don't drive like I'm in a wreck-em' derby , I shouldn't have any problems .

Ralph77 Thinking all you have to do is drill out the rivets for the tie downs and unbolt some seat belts.
When I get around to sound deadening my floor, if ever, I am going to put them back with rivnuts.
Also going to riv nut through my Rugged Ridge cargo mat.
Cause I want to keep the tie downs but never saw the sense in having to slit the 4 spots in the cargo mat
to expose them. Kinda defeats the purpose of holding water and what not if you ask me.

snyper82 It was dark by the time I finished so I had to get pics this morning, but I took the interior of my Jeep out, hosed it down and scrubbed it with tide! It was bad, stunk real bad too.
We have a good sunny day today, hopefully the majority of it dries and I can for the rest in the dryer or something.
I couldn't get the rear carpet out without destroying it (cargo mounts) so this morning I'll lightly scrub it and put a fan on it. I then plan to clean the metal and find the source of the leak on the passenger side.

Luke95 Have you had the ecu tuned and or checked fuel pressure? I had an issue with a old fuel pump putting out 48 psi and it would run fine and lean out similar to how your describing. I also have had one jeep lean out from the o2 sensor going bad as well.

Over 1/2 throttle and the AFR leaned out of range for my AEM gauge (over 17 something). Connected Torque app on the way in to work this morning and the long term fuel trim is at 0. Its a stroker motor so I would figure the LTFT should be fairly high to compensate, certainly not dead 0. Short term was moving around with load and throttle OK, averaging 10-15% at 70MPH, 28%+ while accelerating. O2 response seemed good, timing appropriate, etc.

Wonder if the ECU has fried a circuit? Is that even a thing. I have a spare '01 ecu and the plugs are the same so maybe ill see if it runs on that later
This is the jeep I ordered a boostedtech supercharger for. If I am having ECU issues I may be encouraged to go full aftermarket for engine management. Not that my wallet is looking forward to more $$ spent on this project.

Where is the fuel pressure regulator (and filter for that matter) on this thing? This jeep is a bastard part-of-one-one-year-only thing it seems. It has the same fuel rail as my 01, does not have a return line and regulator on the rail like earlier models, but the fuel tank is like the earlier models with the old style front side of the tank pickup and metal lockring (not the newer top of tank plastic lock ring). ON the newer one the regulator is mushroom shaped on top of the pump assembly at the tank. I haven't pulled the pump out of this one, but there is nothing on the outside of the pump and not enough hoses going to it for a return line elsewhere, so I guess its in there...
The 2001 computer will be looking for more O2 sensors and has a completely different timing system. Although it may plug in, I would be surprised if it ran the Jeep. 1996.5 was the first year of OBDII and is a hard year to find those kinds of parts for because it wasn't even a full year run.
