  1. Just a quick update. I was able to get things working properly along the lines of what Eagle posted. I ended up having to run on additional wire from the 99 XJ tail light connector back to the MJ tail lights. I made this wire the brake light wire and had to cut one wire on each MJ tail light for this to work. Now my top light is the brake, the middle is the turn signal, and the bottom is still the reverse light. I also incorporated a few other cool things, so I'll get a photo and post it soon. Thanks again to all of your for your help!
  2. How did you get them to fit? I could have sworn the XJ sockets were the incorrect size for the MJ tail light housings.
  3. I've swapped over the 99 column. I'll take a look at the write-up, as well as what Eagle has suggested. Thanks!
  4. I think I missed explaining what the problem is!!! Everything works until I have all 3 thing on at the same time: running lights, brake light, turn signals. When I press the brake with the current setup, the turn signals stop completely. I assume I have current traveling back up the system and confusing the turn signal circuit, but I'm not 100% sure. Hopefully that outlines my issues a bit better.
  5. I found a few threads here, however none of them had a finished walkthrough. I've completed 90% of my 99 XJ swap in to my 90 MJ. At this point the only electrical issue is the running/brake/turn lighting on the rear. As has been stated, the XJ wiring and socket types differ from the MJ. I've isolated the XJ wiring and MJ wiring. I have the running lights working properly. I can also get the turn signals to work properly. Where the problem comes in is when I hook the brake light in to the equation. The XJ setup uses different wires and bulbs, where the MJ setup is all intregrated. Has
  6. Thanks a ton! I'll check the ground wire tonight! I can get them to work manually, i.e. running a power wire to them, so I'll assume they are ok. I'll report back tomorrow or later tonight. I always miss the little things like that.
  7. Gents! Almost done with my 4+ year swap...good lord its been that long! I've swapped over EVERYTHING from the 99 XJ. Motor, trans, dash, etc. Does anything need to be done with the rear door wiring for the front doors to work? Right now the only thing that works is the passenger side door lock button. I've got nothing at all on the driver side (Still has the 4-door switches). I searched and searched on here to see if I need to loop the rear wires or do anything, but I've come up blank. Any help is greatly appreciated!!! -Aaron
  8. I'm missing Primanti something fierce...
  9. Is this different on the Renix era wiring? Just curious as I am fighting with no brake lights and a high pedal on my 90 now. I drilled out the WJ rod, and ground the flat spot down, but I am not getting lights when the brake is depressed. I figure I'll get a newer HO pedal assembly and switch and start over.
  10. I believe since mid-2001...but don't hold me to that. It has had MANY different configurations, bulletin boards, etc. I'm hoping to install new software soon. I'll have a dedicated MJ section on it as well, and will be glad to host any and all tech articles you guys want to give me. Wait, are you the creator of JU? Rob L. No....that was Chris Henry. 4Wheel Drive Hardware bought JU from him in 2005 or something like that. I was asked to run it after the person they had running it was let go in 2006. It was run by a few people until I started at 4WD in November of 2007.

  12. Clearly we're being out-posted :D but I'd be curious as to how the breakdown of members goes. For example, the most prodigious 1.3% of posters here account for fully half the posts. I wonder if that scales up. :dunno: Is this just a case of our small group, or is this more like the bell curve, which can be applied to all sorts of things in the world. :smart: Ok...here are some numbers for you: Top 50 posters on JU have 450,870 posts. They would be 0.00048% of all users on JU They account for 11% of all posts Top 200 posters on JU have 1,023,058 posts. They would be abou
  13. What do you want to know? Jeepsunlimited.com Posts: 4,101,726 Threads: 471,542 Members: 103,849 I don't delete non-active accounts. There are just too many to deal with. We don't have any fees associated with any type of premium membership or anything like Pirate4x4 has, as we just don't have the content currently to deal with it.
  14. How many bolts did you remove? There are 8 on my short bed...not sure about LWB. There is a post on here somewhere that shows all the bolt hole locations. A quick search and you should be able to find it.
  15. Crawling example: 42" IROK's and 5.38's. Awesome offroad...highish RPM's on the street. Good mix: My MJ has 33" ProComp Xtreme AT's and 4.56 gears. Decent on and offroad ratio Bad mix: My TJ had 36" swampers and 3.73 gears in an auto. Overdrive was not usable on the road at all. Did kind of ok offroad.
  16. This was the one I was looking at, as the back of the cab openings are 1" http://automotive-hardware.com/5-pcs-1- ... p-262.html I guess I could use plastic, but I just feel that rubber will seal better and last a bit longer.
  17. I have one from an 89 :cheers: Don't think I'll need it now that I have my bugs worked out. One small issue with it...the main red wire for the headlight harness has corroded off the connector. If you are electrically inclined, you should be able to fix it. Shoot me a PM and we can discuss it.
  18. Thanks Don, I did see that page, but it doesn't appear that they have rubber plugs. The 1" rear cab ones that I ma looking for seem to be plastic on that page. I found this on eBay : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayI ... 0179784304 Looks to have a TON of plugs, but I really don't need that many. I guess I could buy it, use what I need, and save the rest for a rainy day.
  19. So, now that the old MJ runs, its time to put it back together. Does anyone have an online source for rubber body plugs? I've removed the soft metal plugs at the rear of the cab because they were slowly releasing their grip. I'd like to replace them with rubber ones, about 1" in diameter. Would also like to find rubber plugs for the 2 large bed soft plugs. One is currently missing, and would like to replace the other one so that they can be removed if need be. I've checked the local auto parts stores "Help" section, and can't seem to find what I am looking for. Thanks! Aaron

  21. I talked to Wildman on the phone about 1:00pm yesterday. He was just outside Washington D.C. No report of ice from him at the time. Not sure about anywhere between there and Pittsburgh, but west of there (Ohio) the roads were just wet.
  22. I hope the hard part is over as well. Need to reinstall the rear drive shaft, dash, and all the other little stuff. The confusion on the flywheel was Hornbrod's description that I failed to read properly. Once I went a re-checked the flywheel that was sitting in the corner, talked to Wildman on the phone, and looked at the pics of the Renix vs. the HO flywheel online, I knew I screwed up.
