Re: The Sleepy 4.7..................

I ran a 160 t stat. It ran too cold and did not get up to temp in time which made it throw a CEL.

Why is it that you're looking to lower it further Shawn? If it's holding 180 at all times then I'd leave it be.

I am hoping it doesn't trip a CEL.

I could see a 160 being an issue. How'd you get a 160 anyhow? modify a 5.9 t-stat?

Re: The Sleepy 4.7..................

Yesterday we swapped out my radiator, after a month's worth of delays.

To anyone that may end up doing this in the future on a 4.7 WJ, I'd recommend at least one other set of hands to help. It is so tight to get the radiator in, we literally lathered the frame rails in VASELINE to get it seated right.

It took myself plus 2 seasoned marine/diesel mechanics 2.5 hours to swap this POS out.

BTW, what passes as an acceptable cooling system amazes me. the factory 1-row radiator is a joke. If time and money were of no concern to me, I would have retrofitted a 3-row universal rad and ditched the hydraulic fan for 2 electric fans. Believe it or not there would be MORE space in the engine bay...which is so badly needed.

Joe, Hannes copied my exhaust setup...the only difference is that I am running Thunderbolt ceramic precats and a race 3rd cat, where he is running factory metallic precats and no 3rd cat. His is a little louder than mine.

I'll get one real soon, looks like I'll finally be able to load up my new SCT 93 file.

No....Still havent re-loaded the tune. Have to replace the coil, and then we'll go from there.

Today the Jeep got hit HARD by a carcass of a Semi trailer tire. It hit hard enough to slightly indent the area of the hood slightly and scratch up 2 grape-fruit sized portions of the hood down to primer.

I'm going to have to live with the indent until I get get a PDR guy to pull it out, and i'll touch up the scratches so it at least looks halfway decent.
