  1. Working on them Cruizer tips . Oxgarding them connectors. Pulled the front facia to examine the front harness. Decided to slap the 00 facia on for a quick look. Anyone know how to pull the big lower connector on driver side fire wall? Also i have 2 connectors on the driver side that i don't know the location of orientation one is a 2 spade brown connector and the other a black one in the shape of a L
  2. So i think 1st Deuce summed it up. Having owned a Nv3550 and a 370 i can say the Nv3550 is my favorite transmission for the jeep. There was a slip out of gear issue when body lifts were installed on Tjs can't speak for cherokees i was still about that frame life then. NOVAK came out with there shifter kit and that solved that. Note i didnt body lift mine just a flat belly skid with 2 inch lift on 245 series MTR tires. Went everywhere...RIP the Goat!! The only issue i ever had was with the throwout bearing. They make a ticking noise. After a few dusty trails and creek crossings. The ones from the dealer are all metal bodies. While the part store replacements (Junk) are half plastic half metal. Go back to the mopar one. These transmissions as mentioned can be found in 00-01 Cheros, 03-04 Kjs Renegades, and Kj diesels. Solid transmission. Id get it you won't be sorry or Pm me the link so i may have a spare lol. The 370, i hated it was in my LJR. That was by far the noisest transmission i ever owned. Shifter binding was a issue.
  3. Its as if it was meant to be, is there a garage on he property to facilitate the J10
  4. Better off rockauto and get a new one and get the red locktight and dab on those bolts, torque to spec. Note flex plates arent balanced. So you could get the existing flexplate neutral/ static balance( i forget the term used a machine shop would know). Its what the mercedes guys do to flywheels and flexplates that are replaced. Because they are balance matched with the engine from the factory.
  5. thanks Ohm for that valuable insight. i have one one question for the location of a connector coming off the firewall harness, i assume grounds go to block. So I'm gonna post pictures from my phone in a second, referring back to a alternator the bracket for the HOs have to be different i watched bleepin jeep video for renix orientation of alternator and the mounting holes don't match.
  6. Thanks Dando, and JMO413, Also i don't see this plug anywhere. That goes above the connectors. What its function, and designation.
  7. Curious to know if the renix alternator will fit with the factory HO brackets, or will i need renix brackets, also can i run a renix starter on a ho block? Can anyone tell me where these wires go they are near the battery tray. And i unpluged the this module and the bottom is cracked should i go ahead and replace of attempt to run it .
  8. Brought out the air tools and got the battery tray out. More rust then i wanted to see. Literally have a sky lite .
  9. Yes that should solve your problem if you still retain the factory renix system, The transmission shouldnt matter as eagle said you have to match the correct flex plate to the correct injection system.
  10. Thanks DewManche this community has been a great resource of knowledge and parts.
  11. Pardon my ignorance but what does that cat5 cable done exactly. Fusebox and relay is bitchin btw
  12. Seats look really good man are they full manual or partly electric? Did you just use 2 inch flat stock for mock up your mounts? The inside turned out nice..great job
  13. Also learned the idler pulley has play. And the Alternator is seized up . Which is a Pita by the way. As mentioned in another post the bolts are badly corroded due to the drain in the battery pan being stopped up. And i just realized i don't have the factory harness for the renix alternator and distributor. 🙄
  14. As she sits from last night. Out with the HO harness, intake, ps pump, radiator ( which turned out to be rusted out on the bottom ) converting to Open coolant system.
  15. Lastly shout out to 500 MJ for the renix cover with clips. Pete M for the CC sticker with Dons truck on it. can't put it on the window yet because my slider needs replacing
  16. Shout out to Blaine.D for the renix distributor and harness
  17. Shout out to MeanLemmons for the awesome cables. And they are compatible for the diesel when i start that.
  18. Getting real when the motorcycle is pulled off the table for it to be converted to a work bench.. also in Jan 7th i (traded my blue 2014 gsxr 600 for a white 2018 gsxr 1000r) not yet pictured its so nice!!!.. so anyways.. Electrical 101 for this guy. I'm horrible at it but with the help of alldata aka Somedata and orileys i was able to get the diagrams to test the controls with a make shift fuse box... every thing works.. very happy .
  19. So i havent posted in a while but been busy. Lots of trips to LKQ, but the diesel is on hold AT the moment.. Its still going in but i need the truck running as of yesterday track session is upon us and i need the bike hauler. So.. with that said. I started taking the necessary procedures to get this truck running in its current state with the HO motor. Sold the 97 green xj it fail at its roll as a parts getter and had a dead cylinder so i sold it as is, not extra time to piston slap a 4.0 and I made 200 profit. I needed to accuire some renix parts that didnt come with the truck. So i purchased a renix Distributor, and C101 harness from a CC member. That will be removed once installed 🤣 following Criusers video. Also found a youtube channel Nickintimefilms..... found the 99+ intake swap is a great idea. So i went to LKQ thE weekend of 2/25 with two items in mind.. well that went to $#it in a handbasket quick... My inner child was foaming at the mouth the moment i entered the yard I found a 2000 patriot blue cherokee, .. (favorite color) needless to say i bought both doors complete, entire front facia/header with harness, Drivers fender, washer bottle, intake with throttle body, ps pump, along with odd and end parts. I got to the register and he was like 586. I was like whaoo bro i can buy a whole parts jeep for 800 I'm not doing that . So i went to put back the extras minus the intake and ps pump. He said wait ill give you a discount but i need cash.. 250 gets it.. Sold. March 3rd rolls around and i get a LKQ alert. My leather power heated seats just rolled in on a 2001 Acura Cl type S . So i get off nightshift and went straight to the yard to score a set of nice seats..
