I was advised by a mechanic I trust when using the Lisle Funnel for coolant
to keep the RPM at about 1500. So when I swap out my coolant I just throw the switch.
Hang out, smoke cigarettes, and drink coffee. Just make sure that there is some coolant in the funnel at all times.
Now since it only ups the idle to 1000 RPM it does take a few minutes more before all the air burps out.
I am about check my AC today since we are supposed to reach 80 degrees by noon.
The FSM says to have the Jeep idling at 1000 RPM when checking with the manifold gauges.
Throw the switch and good to go.
Fourspeedman had a good idea for another use for it. When stuck not moving in a traffic jam on a hot day
put the Jeep in neutral or park and throw the switch.

I paid $75 for mine with the proper pigtail. I thought it was to much but I really wanted it. LOL.
Don't regret it one bit.
You don't want to know I cheap I got that 4 slot factory bezel for though. MLOL.
Going to send you a PM.
Keep an eye out for it.

And it needs a new lock. Not like the lock is any kind of real security though. LOL.
I can't even use it because I have the CD Changer box in my Jeep.
But I figured I would never see one again in my lifetime so.....
Now if I could find a driver's side one and get my spare tire on the back of the Jeep
with the '96 and down tire carrier I have that would be awesome.
Why I grabbed the truck one out of the trash.

Another Craigslist find local to me. LOL.
As I get older I have come to some conclusions.
You can never have to many tools or too much tool storage.
You can never have to many surfaces (benches, carts, tables, rubber mats on the ground, etc) to put stuff on.
And you can never have too much lighting.
Especially that last one as you get older. LOL.

Be honest. LOL.
What did you pay for it?
Did you get the pigtail?
If not a fog light one works. Just have to be careful wiring it. Colors are different.
While a bit more work I recommend wiring it like this guy did.
The part in the beginning where he added a wire to the connector by the firewall.
Instead of splicing into the Pin# A-12 gray wire at the PCM like some guys do.
He did his with the engine out but doable with the engine still in there.
Also I would have to go back over my notes but I figured which fuse in the Junction Box runs
all the lighting with the headlights on. So instead of splicing into one of the orange wires behind
the switch bezel I used a fuse tap from the Junction Box to make the symbol illuminate with the headlights on.

And , I just bought a 4' folding table like your's . Cost me 25 bucks .
I hope the plastic holds up . You seem to load your's up pretty good .
I'll likely use it as a guest or lite project table , so it should do us fine .

So looks like my last act of putzing around today before it rains was dealing with this.
I found it in the trash at work awhile back. It is one of those truck bed boxes that are hinged. You can flip it out towards the tailgate.
Lido way back when made boxes for the cargo area of the XJ's. Some say Jeep. Some say Lido. But they are all made by Lido.
You see the passenger side ones from time to time for sale. I have never seen the driver's side one for sale though.
So I took off all the hinge crap wondering if this will fit.
Thinking not. Compared to a passenger side Lido box I have.
The Lido box does not go all the way to the back of the seat but still think the other one is at least a couple inches to long still.
Next time I have my spare out I will see how it looks but thinking it will end up back in the trash. LOL.

That is one reason I live where I live.
The landlord does not give me a hard time about working on the Jeep and actually gets a kick out of the fact that I am always putzing around with her.
There was time that I had the Jeep on jack stands for 2 weeks. Never said a word.
That was when I did the front tow hooks, did some housekeeping while I was there, and probably a couple other things that I can't remember off the top of my head.
But I was still working full time then too so........

I say give the Spectra shot. Also I don't see you doing a factory cooler. I also see you taking the tranny cooler in the radiator completely out of the equation.
So thinking since you would probably cut tranny lines anyway, use some hose and hose clamps for an aftermarket cooler like guys do, why buy new lines?
