Hi from the UK

Hi,

I'm Neil, I'm from North Wales in the UK and I've just got a 2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7HO Overland.

It needs a little work to get it to the condition I want it in but nothing too major :-

Noisy rear axle (pinion bearings I think).
Fuel pump issue (sometimes difficult to start)?
Refurb wheels & new tyres, anyone know if 255/60/17s are ok on standard wheels?
Tint windows.
Build exhaust - previous owner riveted on a plate and used a lot of exhaust putty to 'cure' a leak...
Dog guard (bought and fitted yesterday as the first time we went out with the dogs 2 out of 3 of them decided they didn't like staying in the back and climbed onto the back seat!)
Rust patch on tailgate.

I could do with a little input on performance mods, I was thinking of anti-roll/sway bar(s) and a Superchip programmer as a starting point along with a 3" exhaust?

I'm lucky with facilities and tools to do the jobs as I've got a workshop equipped with a 2 post lift, etc. and I'll be posting up plenty of pics of my progress

Thanks,

Neil

Re: Hi from the UK

Hi again,

I've made a little progress today and ordered 4 new General Grabber UHP tyres for tomorrow, boot and bonnet(hood) struts as they're all weak, got a couple of metres of 3"318 stainless exhaust pipe, some 90 bends and found a silencer(muffler) in the workshop, not sure it's going to be big enough to keep the exhaust note reasonable so may need to add another or get a more substantial one, especially if I remove some cats

I did a service on it and it was VERY low on oil, didn't even register on the dipstick and the amount drained only seemed to be around the 3 litre mark What kind of previous owner lets that happen?

Decided to de-badge as it's all very cluttered and they're not all in great condition anyway.

I've got some window tinting film on order as I fancy giving it a try myself rather than going the easy route of handing it over to the guys I've used in the past, if it all goes wrong it's only time and very little money lost.

I went to see my bodyshop guy about the tailgate rust patch and alloy refurb and got sidetracked with other things so know it's going to be sorted in the New Year but have no idea on how much it's going to cost

The axle rebuild and fuel pump will probably wait until after Christmas now as I'm away from Friday and doubt I'd be able to get and fit the parts in time and have it ready.

I did my first re-fuel today after filling it on Friday, 190 miles cost 64 odd so seriously considering converting it to lpg...

Cheers,

Neil
