Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Well I am biting the bullet. My Clayton 6" Long Arm kit, and new 35" tires were to be installed end of this month on my wj, I have decided to move up my rear D60 axle purchase from ECGS scheduled for next spring to this install in order to save a little on labor anyway. Getting the ARB locker, gear ratio is 4:56. ARB diff cover, long arm components powder coated red. I get back to town on the 5th, gonna be flexing this out asap

Or would that not be the case
Won't expect a problem with the check engine light. How much current are those LED's drawing? The PCM is just switching the ground for the purge solenoid.

I do not know how much you are going to spend on the ECGS D60, but there is a guy near me (Raleigh) that is selling a used one on Craigslist. Came off of his WJ.. Complete with everything you need.
Feel free to email me if you need some help or are interested. I would not mind swinging by and looking at it for you or do something to lend you a hand.

So the dub needs a tune up bad, I dont think it's ever had one. And now shes running and im not having to spend all my money on trying to keep her that way I think its time. I want to do all performance parts, wondering what everyone suggests and where I can get them.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Just whatever I can pick up that will make a little bit of difference compared to going to autozone and picking up the run of the mill parts.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

The 4.0 isn't going to show you much with any kind of special aftermarket tune up stuff. I've had 2 of them and have tried everything from high end plugs and wires to performance chips. The best thing to do in my opinion is get a set of Champion plugs (OE) and wires and replace them. Especially if it hasn't been done in awhile. Also make sure you're up to date on all of your fluids (coolant flushes, brake fluid, transmission oil, transfer case, differentials, engine). An FIPK is always a good thing, whether it's K&N or some other brand, along with a good throttle body cleaning. A lot of times you can benefit from investing in new O2 sensors, and throttle position sensors, idle air, etc.

If you just make sure the basics are done, you'll get the most out of that motor. Hot plugs or fancy wires really don't get you anywhere. It's more about frequency of maintenance than anything. A Seafoam treatment probably wouldn't hurt either.
