33x10.5x15 with an ax15, 5th gear is all but useless unless I'm on flat ground

Ok well in that case I'll just bounce. I redownload tap talk and it has my old password saved so we are like 3 jeeps behind the curve.

kluttsy01 Gave it a bath yesterday (and it is raining today of course) just got home from the alignment shop and she drives sooooo much better. They said it was 3 degrees out of wack, now it feels like a completely different jeep. Currently contemplating regearing to 4.10s or 4.56s.

TheBoogieman After trying to find a painted bumper end cap for my desert sand XJ and getting prices of $125-130 and $75 more to ship, I decided to have it professionally painted on Wednesday. This place painted my desert sand TJ flare and the color matched the 20 year old paint perfectly. Not even a shade off. $100 and a bottle of touch up paint for my one big scratch. Even the Mopar touch up paint isn't even a close match in color.

If it's not squealing when you rev the motor , it's likely good .

retrvrtrainer Thanks for the suggestion. As it turned out, I went to the parts store and they did not have the brushes. They just stocked the replacement alternator. I figured the old one had 250K on it, so get a re-manufactured one. It's running well again. Just a touch under 14 on the gauge. Probably could tighten the the belt a little.

Possibly a loose belt. Once it's warmed up it's slipping.

Maybe that's the problem, I got a 96.
