Same idea, swap due to underpowering and problem with heat, though.

|downs||Completely different engine bay design. The XJ was originally designed to have an I4 and a V6 not a long I6. They had to modify the firewall from it's original design to shoehorn the I6 in there, this also put constraints on things like radiator sizing. The TJ and YJ were both designed from the getgo with the I6 in mind. I believe this is what has caused many of the XJ issues that the other 4.0L equipped Jeeps do not have issues with.|

Something like this in the appropriate size.
When researching it I did come across something where somebody said not to use a barbed fitting and instead use something like this:
But I can't remember why though.

|TheBoogieman||Found the source of my antifreeze leak. Water pump inlet tube wasn't tightened down completely by the PO when he replaced the pump. Now I need to rig up a new tube that can be tightened without removing everything. I'm thinking a shorter straight tube and longer hose.|

Did you weld in the brackets for the rear seat headrests? I got my brackets from a Grand Cherokee & had the brackets cut out from the back of the GC & welded into the XJ.

Taken the last couple days off but for a few days before that was feeling my way through my rear seat headrest install.
Have not figured out everything yet but am getting there.

Yesterday I dropped a new Efan in it that I got from a local salvage Jeep an swapped the older pin style wiper arms out for 97+ wiper arms and new wiper blades front and rear. This morning I adjusted the driver's door striker pin in just hair so the back of the door would seal. I've had some wind noise from that area for a while but it hasn't been very loud, one day I looked back and noticed light coming in from the lower part of the door seal (these are brand new door seals) so did a small adjustment. Seals great now and the door is flush with the one behind it again.

|TheBoogieman||Washed it for the first time in a month. I need to align it again in the morning when it's below 90 outside.|

The guy I purchased it from installed 1350 yikes on it so I'm thinking about just getting matching pinion yokes rather than running a conversion joint at both ends. Once I swap to tons down the road, all I will need to do is lengthen or shorten the shafts.

Got hooked up with some seats from an ‘03 sequioa. The fold flat option sits at 17” high from the front cab floor. Should just mock up to fit under a bed platform system I’ll be building flush with the rear wheel wells.
Onto tear down and adapting a narrower set of tracks to fit the trans tunnel.
