I can't find the marco paperwork anywhere right now dude, if I find it I will let you know.
Ok, I appreciate the effort. Sometime if you think of it could you check your door. Im not sure if its there but it might be. What year is it? That sucks about the swaybar 2.
MattBillyTayloe said:
The code on the door is for the original paint, it was changed somewhere along the way. And thanks, I will figure something out.
Sorry i guess i missed the part where u mentioned macco lol. Do u remember if it was a jeep color or not?
MattBillyTayloe said:
It seems like it would be, the only thing I have found in paperwork related to me getting it painted, it says color: PG8 I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it, it is probably Maacos colors though. That green the guy said up there looked right, I think he said forest green pearl.
Ok sweet, ill def look into that. PG8 sounds like it could be the code, and ill check out the forest green pearl which is defiantly a jeep color. Thanks man
MattBillyTayloe said:
Also, is this what you were talking about?
Yeah thanks, it says pg8 on that also. Maybe ill buy a pint or a few spray cans to make sure its what i want
MattBillyTayloe said:

Haha thanks, sweet jeep by the way

Take the pin out just don't knock your self out with the door I split my eye on it
That had to be fun
Been reading this for a while but never posted so i think ill start. Just replaced my stock column to in my 88 manche to one from a 91 cherokee with tilt!
Changed inner shift boot, put the stick in and filled trans and t case with fluid... Not really exciting.

Where'd you get the boot?
I got them both from quadratec, cheapest place i could find. The "inner boot" was an exact match, the one that bolts to the plate on the tunnel was from a tj, only one i could find anywhere. I have an AX-15 by the way.
Filled trans and t case with fluids, took 4x4 linkage off of donor truck, and worked on some wiring.
BlueBadger said:
The inner one is the one I need. Mine dry rotted off my ax15 years ago. I get heat or cold (depending on the weather) hit my arm from the E-brake slot. I just wrapped a towel around it. I'll get the right one ordered though. Thanks.
No problem. You have to pull the shifter apart to replace it. Just unbolt it from the trans, and clamp the bottom in a vise. Then hit the "bell" for lack of better word, with a punch. Mine came off fairly easily, and to get it back on I used a rubber mallet when it was back in the truck.

Just what is a driveway alignment?
Where you align your front end in the driveway...
Seriously, you can use chalk on the ground and logs of measurements to align your front end without having to go to a shop.
I posted here like once along time ago. Due to the hurricane i not been able to work on my MJ for over a week. But i hope to start progress back up today. My goal is to have it on the road by christmas!
