Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

But, then, again, I seemed to have not snugged down the distributor, and it failed to start again. Today, I reset it, and it idles well. Let's see it I can drive it tomorrow.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Pulled the soundbar.. dremeled the speaker hole to accept some 6.5" components and drilled holes for the tweeters. Mounted crossovers and added a little bit of killmat. Came out pretty cherry, however, I knicked the aged fabric with the hole saw.. not like it was immaculate to begin with... but ya know, frustrating.
Soldered the connections and sounds great- comparatively speaking. Need to bypass the factory amp and/ or replace it still. Anyone have a go to for cheap 4 ch amp?

Been searching on bypassing the amp.. can't hunt down the exact wiring for my year. 97', BUT the post I found on the rear speaker polarity matched that of a 98'. So who fn knows?!

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Buying parts to put much needed E Brake on thec14bolt . The Detroit lockers allow too much free spin before the driver shafts lock up and allow the park pin to hold you so you roll off shit before it stops ...pretty much tired of that . I still have the park cable from handle back to where it should hook to the cables off the brakes so just need some universal cables to go from that to the brakes . It'll be nice to set the brakes put it in park and have stay put ...Going to put the wheel seals in that I was supposed to do 5 years ago I'm tired of lubing my tire and calipers with 140w.

Replaced the crusty Flowmaster and the clogged cat I somehow passed emissions with.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Just put on a new shift cable I can now actually get into park without having to park with the jeep ready to roll away before I can get out to block the wheel . I also found the source of my interment NO-BUS while getting ready to set up my parking brakes it seems that parking brake has purple ground that if disconnected shuts off the dash I never thought the source of my NO-BUS was in the parking park wiring but that's where it lived .

No, I grabbed the cat from eBay. Still some sellers on there that will ship to CO so I was able to get a Fed one.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Finally got around to installing some parts that have been sitting for the commander for 4 years since I got tired of the blown out front struts and the upper BJ were clunking . I had full upper and lower arms sitting but the lower BJ were fine which keeps me from getting under a jeep on jack stands which I hate since the commander taint tall like the dodge or crawler . Half the engine bay has to come out just to reach the strut bolts and the driver side sway bar bushing bolts were one with the bushing the bushing was good just the bolt threads wich are all full thread were buried into the bushing . I had a small 3 inch lift sitting so I put that on as well which it took me a couple times to figure out how to fit that extra long clevice on with the strut and I had to play with the strut clevice bolt mount holes to fit the bolt through ...lol...found out after getting it all on that the bolt would not line up and straight through . Driver side took 5 hours passenger took...2 . Now I'm going to see if I can pop the rear on b4 I head out for a week it's got prerunner/ stink bug look lifted front no rear . Now I need tires with tread I've been waiting to replace them until I did the lift . Can't fit much on a 3 inch lift with full fenders .

Is the 9" a new axle for ya, or you just freshening up those components?
Couldn't find a build thread, what front axle are you pairing the 9 with? Running 37s it looks like?
