    Bench Seat

    Grey Bench seat out of 1990 mj. No tears, needs to be cleaned though. Has head rests. Bolts and seat belts not included. Located in Staten Island, NY. $100 OBO Sent from my SM-N970U1 using Tapatalk
  5. I did my DD, but no luck. Currently only works on high. Need to rewire the resistor, wiring is shot, connector was melted. Blows air lightly through vents or defrost. Seems better when set on cold. Heat seems to have even less flow. New blower, switched polarity, didnt help. Deff had resistor problems before, melted the plastic housing, I made a pretty sweet duct tape replacement housing that's air tight. Checked vacuum lines only found one blue one that isn't connected to anything. Anyone know if this is supposed to connect somewhere? Sent from my SM-N970U1 using Tapatalk
  6. Picked up a new set of seats! Pretty good condition, bolted right in, xj buckets that had the mj brackets installed already. Stripping has been taking awhile, the rubber covering is by far the worst part, but got most of it. Once I found rust under some of it I decided to get it all out. Slow but steady....

  7. Did a little more touching up Sent from my SM-N970U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Prepping mj to install new floor pan, should I grind those bolt heads down or just cut a hole in the floor pan to go around? Also any suggestions for best anti rust? I saw some weldable anti rust primer to use prior to welding the pan back in. After that I plan to por15 the floor. Sent from my SM-N970U1 using Tapatalk
  9. This nice weather got me motivated to rip out the carpet and see if I had a good truck or a junker. Been putting it off bc I was scared. Thank the Jeep God's, it's not that bad.
  10. Big morning, finally got rid of all the steering slop and it drives awesome now. (I cheated and turned the power steering adjustment allen, if it goes it goes, that other way looks very time consuming). Engine temp is constant, dash shows between 210 and I think 225. Infrared therm. Shows 150ish at thermostat housing and 185 at big hose going off it. And got a freebie finally, oil gauge pegged while driving, when I installed new gauge cluster tore some of the copper ribbon, slid in some wire, works but always in the back of my mind. When the oil gauge pegged I figured that came undone, (ugh taking apart gauge cluster again.....let's say it would of stayed like that for awhile), but the oil sender unit wire had just popped off. It's the small things in life haha, so back to driving her daily again after her sitting for .....3 weeks?
  11. Had a small coolant leak. After driving(up to temp) and turning it off, once it sat for awhile it would leave a small puddle under the jeep. Never saw where it was leaking from, but guessing the lower radiator hose. Anyways decided to just do it all, swapped out water pump, thermostat (stant), thermostat housing, fan clutch, and upper and lower radiator hose. Before temp was well below the 210 mark....guessing 190ish. Now it is just past 210, if I turn on the heat, it drops to 210 exactly...........from what i see (searches) this seem normal. Any input? Positive note- heat blew warm before, now is hot.
  12. Thanks guys, any suggestions for body rust? Should I knock it off or just spray with rust inhibitor/ primer? And what's the best/easiest spray to at least stop the rust for now.
  13. Whats up guys, guess its time to start a build sheet so I can look back. Bought a 1990 4.0, 4x4, AW4, D44, MJ with Metric Ton Package in May 2018 (212k miles). Had to be towed home, missed an interview because tow truck driver decided to run errands.....3 hours later (thought it had been stolen, wouldnt answer phone). Anyway it was rough when I got it, brakes nonexistant, oil pressure low and erratic. Only had 10 days to get in inspected(no driveway) fixed what I could and then had a garage take care of the rest(bill wasnt as bad as I thought itd be) they got the brakes working and switch the oil filter to a WIX, pressure evened out. Passed inspection, and now it takes up all my free time (ask my wife.....). Overall goal is to have something fun, but mostly reliable. As of now I drive it to work once a week (70 miles round trip) without fear. So far..... Changed stock items -windshield, hood latch, brakes, belt/idle pulley, exhaust (stock with thrush muffler), trans mount, battery, alternator, vaccum hoses, blower, TPS and CPS. Upgrade items- 746 fuel injectors, Meanlemons 60mm throttle body and battery cables, Crown Auto HD Steering Kit- RT21004, Gauge cluster with RPM tach and sensors, 31x10.5 General Grabber A/TX(some rubbing full turn), AND completed Cruisers Tips- 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 ,11, 14, 18, 19, 22, 23, 37 To do list- Rust removal, floor pans. At least a 3 inch lift....
  14. It was TPS related. Some problems went away after changing CPS, but not all. Once new TPS was installed no issues.
  15. Ugh, of course I ask this question, mine was avg 5-7 seconds, and then I go to work and smell gas under hood, hopefully o-ring, but will change regulator also, anyways.
