You can pretty easily put Grand Cherokee seats in a Cherokee (the ZJ/WJ bolts directly to the XJ base). ZJ/WJs really didn't come with NAV, except maybe some late model WJ, so either would be an...

If it lessens as it heats up, you likely have a little piston slap, which is fairly common in these engines. My wife's 01 has it, its pretty noisy when it first starts up, but it slowly dies down as...

I think this is getting into the weeds of leaf springs. The HDs have a load rating of 755lbs, but I dont think that is the same as the MAX load they can handle. The road rating, in my understanding,...

I did, which is why I acknowledge that there will be an initial increase in ride height. I am not sure how long after installation of the HD leaf packs people have measured to see how they settle and...

I think this statement is misleading, and largely depends on how they will be used and how long after installation.

I installed the Crown HD leaf-pack in a 01, and immediately measured ~18.25"...

Lets be clear here, YOU WILL NOT get ANY addition lift from any of the leaf packs. Heavy duty sits about 1-2" over stock for maybe a week, then will settle down to stock height. As the previous...

Assume with all these springs that you are going to be stock height or near stock height by the time everything settles in. The difference is the spring rate. So, if you want something nice and...

Qaudratec Heavy Duty

Quadratec Heavy Duty springs will net you almost zero lift (stock height) by the time they settle. True, you will initially be 1.5-2" over stock height when you first install, but they will settle...

I would start with just water and see what comes out. If you feel its still plugged up, do it again with a chemical. It only takes a few minutes to flush, so this isnt something that is going to take...

I think that's exactly it, its cold outside and you have a really effective cooling system. Possible its a lower temp thermostat which is causing more flux.

My Land Cruiser has a huge radiator...

Well the simple trucker fix is to put a little piece of cardboard covering around half the radiator. This way you dont loose so much heat, and it will stabilize your system. The heater core likely...

Its a little strange since you say you have good heat at 15 deg, but this is relative I guess. I just replaced my wifes last week. It was clogged and the car would warm up after a long time, like a...

To clarify, your temp is 210, parked right in the middle?

Thermostat should not be a huge factor here. IF it would heat up when idling (after warmup) and cool down after you start moving; then...

Back flushing usually works, but with sometimes temporary results. If you are already heading down the replacement path, I would not be overly gun shy of using some chemicals to break up whatever is...

Try tightening up the box first, then tie rods. Mine had the sloppiest steering possible, the adjustment screw was 3 turns too loose.

I think I found almost the exact foam. Difference is thickness, its 1/2" instead of the 3/4". But what I found was foam rubber flooring tiles. The interlocking kind, they are around $13 for 12...

Well I do appreciate that. In some instances I am all for the right OEM part (gaskets, sensors, ect), this just seems mostly like an issue of propper material.

I found a couple things on NAXJA,...

If I have missed this somewhere in this post, I apologize. My question is about the foam seals. Most writeup suggest replacing the foam seals for the firewall. They seem to be about $60 via the...
