"PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

Got the exhaust welded up today at the shop and put insurance on it.


After fixing the upstream sensor code i Started getting downstream o2 sensor codes so I'll be messing with the different inserts for the o2 sensors in the next few days.


Added some of the Onewaylighting lights from the led kit and put some blue leds in the shift lights



Now I can finally start cleaning the interior lol im just Happy she's on the road.

Did you try it without the o2 sensor spacers.

How's it sound with the flowmaster?

I went through and tightened everything down and they went away for a couple days then popped back up but I haven't really spent much time diagnosing those yet but I'll mess with it when I get back from this fire.

The flowmaster super 44 sounds great overall and is my new favorite. Real throaty and sounds good in all the right places for an XJ. deep grumbly idle, raspy at 1400-1500 rpms for a second then it just sucks air through while your cruising highway speeds and its quiet as can.

"PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

Today I added the double din bezel and installed a pioneer dmh-2660nex

Took me a while to find one that was in stock but it's nice. Capacitive touch and android auto were my buying reasons, I just plug my phone in and can use my voice to find me the nearest tacobell. I love technology.

Installed some LED highlights today and my Thor cowl intake came in the mail.

Very happy with the look of these and satisfied with the brightness as well

Re: "PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

that interior reminds me of my late little 97, same color but a better radio than mine. What did you end up doing with the donor ZJ body once you ripped it's guts out?? it was a lot like one i had years ago. Keep the great pics and progress coming.

"PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

Wired in an underhood light yesterday



Just connected the led light to the oem lightbulb posts and ran the wire through the box then dabbed the hole with some silicone.

Since the led light runs off that box it turns off when you shut the hood and vise versa.

Today I tore apart the interior to add led dash lights and prep the trim to paint it charcoal gray, dye the carpet and add some kilmat sound deadener





Sneak peek of the seats I found I'll post them when I get it all back together

Re: "PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

Love that underhood light, seriously impressive, want one.

& using the switch function of the factory one is inspired (even if I do struggle to get mine to work)

Re: "PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

So much heat gets radiated into the cabin from the firewall and floor all the way to the back of the vehicle. If you trying to reduce heat ingress, pile on the insulation in those locations.

Re: "PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

I hate to ask but that ZJ was a 4x4 right and a 42re trans?? I really need a TCM for my 93 ZJ that has a glitch in the trans module. All 4x4 42re 4.0 ZJ's from 93-95 use a TCM that will work on mine, newer ZJ's it's part of the PCM.

Re: "PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

Never mind, I just read where you said the donor is a 97. I already have a PCM and trans from a 97 I can't use yet cause i have no harness to retro my 93.
