  1. Baton Rouge, LA $60 + shipping if you send your old one. That's half the usual price.
  2. This doesn't really make any sense to me, even after studying the wiring diagrams. Are you sure it's not a coincidence? As far as the brightness, all LED bulbs are not made equal. In my experience the ones sold by parts stores are hot crap. You can also buy amber and red LED bulbs that greatly reduce the amount of light filtered through the lens. These are especially useful behind the instrument cluster, as bright white LEDs tend to wash out the thin color filters on the guage cluster over time.
  3. I've bought a bunch of Transit Connects in the last few years for my company and they were in the 7k-9k range but I haven't bought any since the market exploded. All are 2011-2014 though, and they ALL needed new motor mounts. I think companies just dump them when the mounts go bad.
  4. From my understanding the TV cable (the one you mentioned being tight, going from the throttle to the transmission) controls shift points, and the automatic TPS controls downshifting when you give it gas. Like Jdog mentioned, check the TPS. As Cruiser mentions on his site, the 4-wire connector feeds the TCU and the 3-wire connector feeds the ECU. Make sure its adjusted properly and that the signal is getting all the way to the TCU.
  5. I already took off for work, but I can definitely get those things for you this afternoon. And maybe a clearer, brighter pic, too As for the vacuum diagram, yeah it's missing. Don't think it's there on any 87 I've seen. Maybe some other guys can confirm that its normally like that.
  6. I can take a pic of my 87 when I get home in a few days. The sticker is in good shape.
  7. I find the cloth to be much more comfortable as well.
  8. All of my parts come from Quadratec. Haven't had any problems other than some synchro profiles being wrong because they changed a bunch throughout the years. https://www.quadratec.com/jeep-replacement-parts/jeep-transmissions/ax15.php https://www.quadratec.com/products/52113_10.htm
  9. This seems like way more effort than it takes to just repair any vacuum lines lol
  10. I was looking into this before, and there's a lot of companies who will remake your emissions label... except they only sell to collision centers. What's up with that? Anyways, looks like we'll have to get someone on the forums to make em, and it doesn't help that there's some pretty big year-to-year changes with them, too! If anyone does step up, I want one for 87!
  11. Ambient temperature plays a big role in viscosity at startup, but once the engine reaches operating temperature it should be extremely negligible. It's been nearly 100F outside every day and my new 4.0 is running pegged at max pressure until it's warm, but drops a little to 55 or 60 when warm at idle. It does have a brand new Melling pump though - not sure how much that impacts it despite it being labeled as standard volume.
  12. Are you saying its 10-15psi when warm on the highway? What RPM is that? If that's 2500+ RPM that's VERY low. I'm pretty sure the spec at idle is 13+psi and I assume the oil light comes on when it dips below 13. Ideally I would like to see much more than that, though. Before you do anything, though, rent an external guage from your local auto parts store and slap that on you verify your guage and sender.
  13. To be fair, if it takes LPL more than 30 seconds to pick it you might as well classify it as one of the best
  14. All the ones It looks different because this one has the transducer located in the EGR body, which is why the body on it is so comparatively massive. Someone on NAXJA said these don't pass CA emissions, but I don't think anyone particularly cares if that's true
  15. Pilot bushings are made from oil-impregnated bronze that release oil from microscopic pores as they wear down.
  16. When a diode or transistor burns up it can fail open-circuit or closed-circuit. If the latter it'll probably cause unintentional paths to ground which will likely cause failures elsewhere and testing may give very weird readings.
  17. If you want to convert the AX15 from 2WD to 4WD, you will need to replace the tailcone AND the output shaft, the former of which is only available from a 4WD AX15 anyways so in no world would it be reasonable to swap it unless you already had 2 broken transmissions. Additionally, that transmission has an external slave Bearing retainer on it so it most definitely has the larger, 3/4" pilot and will need a special pilot bushing that Big Dan mentioned unless either your engine or the transmission have been modified.
  18. I'd buy a roll of vinyl in your preferred color and a roll of knifeless tape so you can get it exact.
  19. If I remember correctly the crossmember-to-frame bolts are M10x1.25 so they would be 17mm.
  20. Phoenix Graphics does awesome decals and they have a HUGE selection of Jeep decals
  21. My local hardware store sells fully-threaded grade 5 bolts but not 8. Never seen fully-threaded grade 8s in stores
