  1. Past hour
  2. Newp. I can't turn the fogs on without at least turning on the low beams. Once they're on, I can shut the headlights off though and the fogs still stay on. They do cut off when I switch to high beams, per federal regs. Like I said, it took me 2 years of owning it to figure that one out. Also, I do have a headlight sentry too (probably all KJ's do ). If you cut off the ignition with the headlights still on, they stay on for a minute. Another learning curve for me. I know, RTFM.
  3. Ahhhh....that's a big NOPE. Got the nylon washers, boogered up one of them installing it and had to go back and get another set. Got them both on successfully, and the damn thing is still leaking. Not as bad as before, but not sealed. It's all put back together (again), I have to go to work tomorrow. It's our office Christmas party and I'm making 20 lbs of bone-in chicken and a 10 lb ham. I've got a fresh quart of power steering fluid in the cab, should be enough to get me there and back for a few days (the leak is only a small drip every couple minutes). I need to order a new high pressure line and just replace the whole damn thing. That flared fitting has obviously failed
  4. Today
  5. I'm guessing they were just stamping numbers. I've found a ton of newer parts that the number stamped in them is crap also. I'm guessing engineering would be the only ones with access to that cross reference.
  6. And that's a one eared alternator now. The good part was the bolt unscrewed with the piece of alternator siezed to it. After that debacle the new one when in nicely. Reused on of the bolts that held the hose bracket on the AC compressor to replace the destroyed one. Got the bypass bracket installed with the new shorter bolts I had to go get. And this is where the redneck in me came out. I took the radiator hose bracket off the old AC compressor and drilled a hole in it. I screwed a piece of allthread in the unused hole in the AC compressor bracket. Then mounted the hose bracket to the allthread. It hold the upper hose in place nicely. This is my first until I can find an upper hose that fits better. Or forever who knows. I just didn't like it flopping around. The best part is cylinder 1 spark plug is all out in the open.

    Click on your username (upper right hand corner) and go to Account Setting, then go to Signature. Put your vehicle Year and Engine there.
  9. No problem. I will gladly provide input in your new post in the tech side!
  10. I found that most of the mounts and stuff from the Chrysler era don't exist at all. Its like Chrysler had one number while the part had another number. Perhaps the dual ID system we never use to search parts?

    ok I'm new thanks for the help
  12. Had today off so the old girl got some more parts put on I've been collecting. Changed the passenger side door handle. I moved my original handle over to a new to me used trim panel. The chrome is much better on the new one. New to me on the right and the original on the left. Now the interior chrome is in pretty decent shape. Someday I hope to find the chrome trim for the upper part of the pull handle. Then it was on to replacing the AC compressor mount. My AC has never worked and the compressor was just sitting there as an idler. I also figured out the compressor bolts are sized in the bracket. I figured this out when I was removing it to replaced the timing chain and reseal the front cover. The bracket will come out with the compressor attached but it sucks! I got a newer style bracket so I could buy the readily available AC delete bracket/idler set up. Thanks again to cruiser54 for the bracket. The old compressor is not too easy to get out siezed to the bracket. A little time and allot of patience. The old renix style is gross. Those extremely long bolt are a horrible idea. The part number on the newer bracket doesn't exist in the Chrysler catalog. The doorman AC bypass pulley. Part # 34171 fits perfect. The bolts that come with it are to long is the only bad part. You do have to install the included bushing so the pulley lines up. I also planned on changing the alternator since I would be able to access it easily. My original had a slight bearing whine and was a 64 amp. Bought a new ACDelco 100 amp. It was like $85 on Amazon. I snapped the head off the bottom bolt on the alternator. Then I snapped the ear off the alternator it was stuck so bad.

  14. Alrighty. If you need help, post in the tech what your problem is. This area is for the registry of all our trucks. Not everyone is gonna look at these to help you out with your problem. I'll gladly post a build date and sheet for you.

  17. Thanks for the kind words. Bolens is more of an obscure brand, these were built in Wisconsin. It is definitely fun, I did some donuts in the snow today. Mowing isn’t bad, but it is super loud and rides so rough your back hurts after about an hour.
  18. I do not know if this is an avenue fore you but did you look at 2 door XJ belts? I seem to remember having to fix a 2 door belt and it was different than the 4 door.....It mounted up higher so that you could get into the back seat by leaning the seat forward...Might be worth looking into?
  19. I wish there were more of these builds. Is there a NAXJA like site for the Grand Cherokee ? I have only seen two lifted GC’s rolling around my area. I wish there were more. I am really happy that your sharing your project.
  20. I know up until a 96 XJ you definitely can. The seat belt mounts are identical. I used the seat belt and retracting assembly out of my 96 XJ in my 89 MJ and it bolted right up and works fine. The latches were different though so I used the female end as well. If you grab them out of a wreck, just grab the mating ends as well.
  21. Lol, I was just going to say that. That sounds fantastic. Keep posting
  22. Holy cow is that incredible! Before I read it I thought for sure you had it painted. Never heard of a comet wash before. Very nice 👍🏻
  23. Some real talent there. Should be able to get a job as a lego designer in my opinion. Yeah, post up the LJ when it is done
  24. That tractor looks so nice after the bath. I am not familiar with that brand, but you’re talking to a guy who only knows Craftsman push mowers. I would be excited to mow if I had that
  25. Maybe HVAC plenum design has something to do with heater core valve or no heater core valve.
