  1. Mine but it's a distant picture. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah I wish ARB would sell a normal bumper without the extra winch stuff. I like the design for sure. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. I am looking for a front bumper that allows me to keep the factory air dam and not trim the fenders. I don't plan on putting a winch on it. I want protection from a deer mainly. I like the ARB style for sure, but it seems like they are designed to trim the front end. If anyone has ideas like what I am looking for please post a picture. I want side protection so a overhanging style like the ARB would fit the bill. Thanks Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  4. Got a deal on something I've been looking for. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  5. I'll give those a look, it shifts when it is supposed to up and down and the torque converter locks up like it should. I changed the fluid and filter when I put the truck together maybe 10k miles ago at the most. The TCU and trans are from a '90 XJ as my truck is an '87 MJ. I will also check the switch, I notice it does work ad shifts slower or slips more then set to the comfort mode. Might as well bypass it since I will never use it anyway. Thanks for the tips Cruiser once again!
  6. I have a '90 AW4 in my truck with the 242 transfer case and it shifts slow even with the sport shift on. I think it has some slippage when I really get on it because the throttle doesn't seem to match up with forward movement. It seems the torque is absorbed by the tranny. I have a 4.7L stroker and it barely spins 1 wheel through 1st gear. I went through the 242 and it works good so I really don't want to upgrade the input shaft to the 23 spline. I know the 23 spline is "slightly" stronger, but has anyone actually broken one? Do I pull it and have it rebuilt thi
  7. My '87 Comanche had a problem today, the Right Front caliper locked up. I tested it by jamming on the brakes and it pulled to the Left HARD. It was pulling to the Right when driving to alert me before hand. I replaced the caliper today and test drove it again after bleeding. Still pulls to the left, but not as much obviously. The entire brake system was new when I rebuilt the truck. New '96 MC and booster, new brake lines, new hoses, new calipers, pads and rotors, deleted rear load sensing valve. It is a '93 Cherokee Dana 30. The ONLY thing that has been burning in the back of my mi
  8. That didn't last long, left the truck outside overnight to see how it would do in the cold. Wife gets up and says "fixed the idle eh?" Back to the drawing board. Any other ideas? I took a small video this morning of it.
  9. Well, that did the trick. It was dipping to 540 RPM's and then chasing the idle. The set screw was loose, it probably worked its way down over time. I started with some shims to determine how much to adjust it. I was able to adjust it from the bottom even though the screw is upside down to prevent tampering. I will drive it this weekend to see how it feels, thanks a ton guys!! Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  10. What is the normal idle speed? Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  11. https://youtu.be/keSWerL3qPY https://youtu.be/RDy_Tm0VoVQ Okay, made some time to take a couple of short videos of it running with the scanner, vacuum gauge and fuel pressure gauge in the mix. To me it looks like the vacuum at idle is good, I tried using MAP gas around the intake manifold and the engine didn't move off idle, so it's safe to say I don't have a vacuum leak. The fuel pressure stays solid. As for the throttle body I have the BBK newer style one. It seems the idle air control motor isn't working like it should, that should not change at colder temps thou
  12. It seems EVERY Renix system has had this problem, mine is no different. Well here goes, it's a Renix run 4.7L stroker with a BBK billet throttle body, 21lb injectors if I remember right and it has run like this since I put it together. The idle chases up and down and never settles into a normal RPM. I have the Snap On scanner and nothing seems awry, the temperature comes up, goes into closed loop runs fine. I would like to fix this mostly because it's so annoying I don't like driving it like I used to. I have checked the vacuum and it goes up and down with the RPM, so I don't know if I ha
  13. Off topic to some extent, my 4.7L stroker has always had a up and down idle and seems worse when cold. Would this be a possible place to look? I haven't looked into the problem, I have just dealt with it. I have a Snap On scanner and a multimeter, just haven't had the time to allocate to it. I will buy one if I know how to test mine, it's an '87 by the way, but it has most parts from a '90. Actually these Jeeps are all random parts, mine isn't any different.
  14. Sometimes I miss the brush guard that came with the truck, and for some reason I liked the gray wheels a lot.
  15. Getting the itch to pull it out of the garage this spring. I foresee no more salt on the roads so on Monday it will get full insurance on it again. I had big plans on replacing all weather seals on the windows and putting new door speakers in. I am going with 6.5" speakers so I have a spare door to play around with to get it right the first time. I have two amps and a 12" sub to build a box for. Nothing got done this winter as usual. I never have enough time to complete anything having a family now. Not that I would trade anything, but I would like to get it done this spring.
