Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

I actually had a falling out with him due to some shotty exhaust work he did on the jeep, after 5 canceled appointments to fix the issue I told him to kick rocks and had someone else fix it. Basically any fabricator with some aluminum welding knowledge should be able to fab a tank up though, just make an L shaped tank so the factory pump has a spot to sit on.

I think mine is. I have the front and rear washers operating just fine. I had a friend install mine so I was not around for the install. I remember he told me he did a little splicing with the hoses to get the back to work as well. The headlight ones don't work though.

Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

Hey Scott, keep us updated if you find a way to maintain stock functionality.

I know I'd get a bwoody tomorrow if I knew I didn't have to sacrifice anything.

Maybe write a little "how to"

That's too bad. Thanks

This! I've also been told if you call Bwoody they will give you a discount. I'm not sure how much though...

I've solved the crappy washer tank conundrum for us BWoody intake users, allowing us to use the stock washer motor and run front and rear sprayers as it should be. It involves a coolant overflow tank from AutoZone, some 3/8" ID tubing, a 1/2"x3/8" coupling, some SS sheet metal screws, neoprene washers, and gratuitous use of a dremel... Total investment is about $30.

Yup. I just have a little bracket to fab up and some wires to splice and I'll post up some pics. I've had a mis-start or two coming up with a solution; I forgot that simpler is always better.

Very interesting. Do you need the Bwoody extension for the low fluid sensor? I'm definitely not splicing.

Is this the same solution that Mongoose came up with? I remember his had a coolant tank also and utilized the stock pump.
