  1. I haven’t called them yet. I want to get a picture of the containers bloated before I call. I think that is a good idea squeezing them a bit before I cap them off. I will let you know what happens.
  2. That’s it!! Thank you . I will go through my old parts bin and see if I have another connector
  3. Let me know how that works out. I am getting ready to replace mine too
  4. Oh man, I just gave away my other one to an mj owner. I will keep a lookout for one though. thanks everyone for the location. I still can’t find it but I know where to look
  5. Testing out the look of the rear tire carrier. I spent a lot of money on the Rotopaxs and brackets, and now I think I may have jumped the gun on buying them . They actually scare me because they swell up so much that I can barely get them off . I have never heard of this happening. I think I am doing something wrong? I guess I need to fill them to the point they overflow but in the Florida heat they look like the are going to burst - yikes, not safe near the exhaust. .I don’t know how often I would ever use them anyways and it always smells like gas out back. Here are the two setups -> I am stuck with them now. I think I will use them when I go on the occasional off-road adventure/road trip. They are going to be used for my lawn equipment for a while. Can’t risk the potential catastrophic failure for a “look.”
  6. Anyone have a picture of where the other end of the connector for the hood light comes out of? I can’t find mine and if I knew where in the wiring harness the other end comes out of, I could get it working -> The Jeep did come with one but was missing. The cut outs for it was in the under hood padding. Oh yeah; 1990 XJ! Thanks for the help.
  7. Second day off work and I have gotten very little done on the Jeep. I just got soaked in gas changing out the fuel filter and It did nothing to change my acceleration problem. Go quickly through first and second gears but not much after that even when I punch it. So embarrassing trying to get to 50mph and holding up traffic at 35 . I kinda completed one project - the under hood light -> Of course, I pick this up at the junk yard . It came off an 1989 XJ. It extended the full length, and to my surprise, retracted completely . It even had the bulb, and a clear plastic cover which was in great shape. My Jeep originally came with this option, but was missing? I guess because it went bad. I bolted it in -> but I haven’t been able to test it out , because I can’t find the connector for it? TBC
  8. Did not know that ! This build reminds me of all the things I had to do on mine. That was so much fun. Just feel all warm and fuzzy inside reading this . Subscribed
  9. It’s it’s the radio fuse. 15 blue. Pops as soon as I plug one in
  10. Thank you. I need to find out why that wire is blowing the fuse.
  11. Kind of a weird question, but I have lost power in my blue with white stripe wire. It powers the clocks back light and I want to know if that light stays on all the time or only when it’s keyed on? I never payed attention before getting this new clock.
  12. I was sooo hoping that the name of this project meant a wagoner front end!
  13. I guess so! It’s 90 degrees out and I have been in bumper to bumper traffic for the past 20 minutes - pegged out here -> I am pleased, but it could be too cool now 😎
  14. I have been having some temperature swings in the Jeep. Runs super cool then just starts to really heat up at random times?? Checked the coolant and that was fine and then I accidentally bumped the electric fan and it stopped. The wires at the motor end seem to be bad. I decided to get a new replacement fan rather than trying to fix what could be the original fan. I decided on the Dorman electric fan -> There are some differences between the new and old fan as you can see -> So out with the old -> And in with the new -> Haven’t had a chance to see how well it works since I just now put it in. It does stay on lol and it is pulling some serious air in! TBC
  15. Thank you all for the help . The amp control wire was on the power antenna wire as you helped me figure out. No matter what I tried with the amp I couldn’t get it to work properly . I ended up getting a new Kenwood amp and it worked perfectly.
  16. Nicely done. I am going to have to do this here soon. Can I ask what gauge metal you used?
  17. Looks really good. Especially against that beautiful red paint.
  18. This made me laugh 😆. I never had luck with clear coating for what ever reason?? How is yours holding up?
  19. I would highly recommend this upgrade. I wanted to keep the factory side mirrors on the MJ to keep the stock look. After upgrading the XJ with the 97 and up side mirrors, I am never looking back . WhenI purchased the Cherokee it obviously came with the old style side view mirrors, but in chrome-> I knew I wanted to go with a black accents and this was a great time to try out the newer style option. Picked up a set of a 97 Cherokee at the pick n pull for around $25 for the set. They were electric mirrors, but so were mine. I hoped that they were compatible. First thing I did was cut out the switch hole in my cup holder. It already had the outline molded into the plastic. That made it a lot easier. I snapped the the factory switch in and hooked up the wiring harness -> I then removed the old mirrors and installed the new ones. To my surprise the connectors clipped together despite the 8 year difference. Got them in place and they look nice -> I hooked into the factory switch and it worked!! These are amazing.
