    So, to totally derail this thread..... Try owning a KJ and trying to find any decent tech forums (or tech info in general) on the internet. You'll have better luck trying to nail jello to a tree.

    MJ/XJ STORAGE LIQUIDATION SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY (Indiana)

    Headliner backerboards are a $100 a piece plus shipping. I only have 3 left as of now. I can ship through post office if kept in a simple mirror box to meet dimension requirements. Pm me zip codes. Saturday the first 1 will be shipped and I will have almost exact quotes off of that one and a zip code. It will be first come first serve.
  4. What a beautiful truck. Makes me want to just finish my truck already. But still no where near that end goal. Keep sending pics please

    Rocker Switches?

    That looks good man. I may do the same once I figure out what switches I'm going to get

    I was considering the wwII od green. Monstaliner just has a bunch of cool colors. I went with the predator green. I know monstaliner has plenty of great reviews and it is supposedly UV stable for 5 years (at least) so no fading or chunking off. Another positive of monstaliner is that you can roll it on or spray it on. And you can actaully get it pretty smooth or rough if you want it.

    Oversize Oil Filter

    I didn't alter time between oil changes. Yep, you're paying an additional $4 to $5 I suppose. But I disagree that it just makes your changes more expensive. Your few extra bucks gets you the benefits of added capacity.

    Mine with MonstaLiner WWII Olive Drab. Zero regrets.

    I did my truck in MonstaLiner WWII Olive Drab. No regrets. I ran a DA sander over my existing crappy finish. Please don't?? Matter of opinion, my friend. I love mine. I can go through the woods and not worry about tree branches scratching paint. I get TONS of complements. It's funny how people always like to stroke and rub the finish with their hands. I've got two coats of MonstaLiner, as they recommend, and I feel like any more would be unnecessary. And i agree with Swampy that the 2-gallon kit was probably less than 30lbs. I'd coated my entire rig with the exception of the bed interior. May do that later this Summer but I'm in no hurry. Pete M is correct: There's advantages and disadvantages. This works for me. Like toughness and hate the thought of easily scratching and dealing with prolonging the life and looks of paint? Use your truck like the utility vehicle it was born to be? Plan on hanging on to your MJ for a while? Then please do.

    Does more oil capacity allow you to go longer between oil changes? If not, seems like this just makes your regular oil changes more expensive.

    Oversize Oil Filter

    I'd looked into this filter's performance in the past, and man, Baldwin sure doesn't put out much detailed information. Here's a few shared stats that I found on a quick search of forums: 23 microns, flows at 23 gpm Made in USA The BT is their prefix for "Spin-on Lube or Hydraulic/Transmission Filter" Anti-Drainback Valve 8 psi by-pass relief Some guys really get into the detailed discussions and ugly arguments that most always ensue. Many folks talk/argue about micron ratings. Check out what Baldwin says about micron ratings: Micron Ratings are arbitrary values assigned to filters or media. Although a “micron” is a length (1 millionth of a meter), a “micron rating” is not actually a measured value. The micron rating for a filter quotes a particle size without establishing the filter’s efficiency at removing that size of particle. A window screen will remove some 5 micron particles, but it will not be very efficient. Since a micron rating cannot be verified, filter manufacturers are safe in assigning any number they want. We do not recommend comparing filters based on micron ratings. To compare filters, the filter industry has established standardized tests for measuring performance. These tests also include Life and Efficiency Tests (SAE HS806, J726 and J905) and Beta Ratio Tests (ISO 4548-12 and ISO 16889). These standardized tests, along with the meticulous recording of test conditions, insure that filter manufacturers compare “apples to apples.” LIFE AND EFFICIENCY TESTS Life and Efficiency Tests are the most accurate and objective way to compare the performance of filters. A life and efficiency test measures the filter’s ability to remove a standardized contaminant from a standardized fluid that is flowing at a constant rate and constant temperature. The test continues until the contamination increases the differential pressure drop across the filter to a specific, predetermined level. The test results will include a Time Weighted Efficiency (%) and a Capacity (grams). BETA RATIO TESTS Beta Ratio Tests measure a filter’s ability to remove particles of a given size. In other words, the tests measure the filter’s efficiencies at specific particle sizes. The beta ratio test actually counts the particles in the fluid before the filter and after the filter. This test is generally done on hydraulic filters. SUMMARY In summary, equipment owners should consider all of the factors when choosing filters for their applications. You should try to closely follow crossreference and specific application recommendations. When comparing filters, you should note the questionable nature of micron ratings and try to get standardized test information. As for me, this filter had worked for many and I feel good about putting it on. I've read comments from a few guys that have cut them apart, and their comments suggest that the construction is above average. Hadn't run across anything on whether or not the filter's media is synthetic or cellulose/paper. I've not read a single comment that someone said the Baldwin BT-251 had destroyed their engine. And I dig the color. Prior to the pretty red Baldwin, i used the nearly equally-sized WIX 51773:

    Liner isn't nice paint, it comes pre-ruined for you.
  15. A tune up was done recently, so that's not it.
  16. What coil springs did you choose for the front?

    Me neither. Is that because we're crusty old farts?
  18. Wiggle the 5A instrument panel fuse around in the block some and see what happens. Mine had a bad contact inside the block that would make intermittenty.....I had to wedge the fuse inside the holder so it would make constant contact. Is your MJ a manual trans by chance? If yes, check the clutch master rod for dripping fluid. It is conveniently located directly above the fuseblock, and likes to drip fluid directly onto it. No bueno.

    I used a angle grinder with a wire cup brush. I had 3 layers of paint from previous owner. The kit comes with 3 gallons material after mixing comes with a spray gun and all I did was prep the truck make sure your primer is dry. Not dry to the touch fully cured cuz it will Bake It Off when the bed liner cures. Sent from my Z981 using Tapatalk

    Is the Baldwin a synthetic media? I am using the NAPA Platinum with Rotella T6. Its larger than the stock filter, but not as large as the one you have.

    Oversize Oil Filter

    Here's mine on my 89. Believe it or not, the matching paint color that I used on my intake heat shield and dip stick wasn't planned. Just a color I had laying around. I just want each of my components to look better after I work on them.
  23. Might have to make a list of people that want them and might have to collect money before I have them cut. Because they have to be paid for before cutting. And I can't really afford to cut all these at once for you guys (at least 10 sets of each bracket, just on here. Facebook is another 10 sets or so). I'm still trying to figure out a fair price. Once they're formed I'll see about flat rate shipping and that will be included in the price.

    What should I do then? I don’t want nice paint to get ruin quickly I’m trying lol but I want the best protection for my nice paint
  25. Hi guys! Quick question so I just found an awesomee deal on some pro comp wheels 15x8 with 3.75 BS btw, I'm currently on 2 inches of lift in the front, rear stock on a 1987 manche. Ok heres the question, would i need to trim the fenders? Would run on a 30" tire and the wheel I'm trying to buy its a 3.75 BS Tried searching but all the topics thet I found had a waaay bigger tire than mine. DDing this truck btw Thanks in advance
