  1. I lost one of my front door trim panels/strips from the glue peeling back and the wind caught it one day. Please let me know if you have one you are willing to sell. I've had trouble finding one online.
  2. Agreed. Two of the outer mounting brackets do not line up but the mounts using the rubber grommet lines up just fine which is enough support for the radiator. My Jeep hasnt had any issues with this setup.
  3. The electric fan is stock wiring. The fan +12V wire comes from the secondary fan relay. The ground wire from the fan goes to ground. The coolant temperature switch located on the radiator is what switches the relay on/off. To re-purpose the coolant bottle, the 5/16" line coming from the radiator overflow line by the radiator cap was routed into the bottom of the bottle. I managed to find a rubber grommet that fit in the bottom of the bottle and was about the same outside diameter as the hose. So, I inserted the 5/16" hose into the grommet with some Seal-All and then pressed all of that in
  4. Review on Krusty's Hitches. I must say this man does an awesome welding job. The fabrication and shipping was very fast. No damage to the hitch when I received it. The hitch also came with new bolts. I painted the hitch with POR-15 rust proofing when I got it. That is some great stuff by the way. All the dimensions were within spec and everything went on good. Thanks Krusty!
  5. Hey all, Here is the model and information you need to know about my Jeep. 1989 Jeep Comanche Eliminator, 4.0L Straight 6, Automatic Transmission, 2x4, I have A/C and cruise control. I have managed to complete my closed to open cooling system conversion. I did not spend a lot of money and I also did not go the cheapest route. I shouldnt have to replace any more water pumps or worry about cooling ever again. Here is a list of components that I bought: //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 2-Row Radiator - $100 htt

  7. Check out my DIY booster swap in my signature. It outlines which ends are bubble and standard flared.
  8. If you haven't already... click on the link in my signature for the dual diaphragm brake booster upgrade.

  10. what was your way of purging the air out of the system? I usually start the engine and let it warm up close to operating temp, shut off the engine, let it cool a bit till the radiator is 'warm". then open the radiator cap. Repeat maybe one or two more times.
  11. Upgrade your ground cables!!! Recommend doing the WJ/XJ brake booster conversion. It makes your stopping power so much more. Replace the hard vacuum lines with rubber hoses of the same inside diameter. Use POR15 rust proofing on the rear of your frame, bumpers, and rocker panels. Expensive stuff but works amazing. Duck tape your spare set of keys on the connector for the rear lights! I do this because it looks like a terrible electrical job with all the tape but if you ever lock your keys in your jeep all you have to do is go underneath the back to the connector, rip off the ta
  12. This^ Tires deform due to the weight they hold. To more accurately find out your vehicle speed you need to measure your dynamic rolling radius. Then find out your current RPM, the gear you are currently in (if you are in OD then use that...), and the differential gear ratio. MULTIPLY... (RPM * 2 * 3.14 * 60 * [measured tire RADIUS in inches]) to get your inches per hour. Then DIVIDE that answer by the transmission gear ratio, the differential gear ratio and 63360 to convert inches to miles. (RPM * 2 * 3.14 * 60 * [measured tire RADIUS in inches]) / (Transmission Gear Ratio * Differe
  13. When warming up it is common for rough idling since the O2 sensor is not warmed up yet. The O2 sensor is in open loop mode. When the sensor is warm enough the ECU then goes into closed loop mode fluctuating the air to fuel ratio. The renix does not do a great job at this so the engine will kind of "hunt" for a stable idle no matter what... But I also did about everything in my power to get rid of this.
