Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

I'm gonna abuse the crap out of the WJ tomorrow. The motorhome is stuck beside the garage again.Ole Silver pulled the 12,000# beast out two years ago.We'll see if it's up to the task again. It's bigger and badder this year but I think the Itasca is stucker this year too. Scenes from 2 years ago:

I don't see why you need to beat on your Jeep for this when that red tractor in your avatar could clearly pull that beast of a camper out.

The energy bushings are definitely a blessing, and easy to install and re-grease.

Good luck with that! Let me know if you get that to work, I've never been able to figure it out .

Good luck pulling out the camper, the WJ can do it no problem! Thats what quadradrive is for!

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Assuming it gets delivered today, I will be installing the new shift solenoid tonight, along with a transgo shift kit. I want my WJ back! The wife's PT isn't so bad, but you know you have put plenty of money into modding when your WJ corners better than the car!

Yes, rust free, and these use a poly bushing instead of rubber

After this is done, I'll be looking to do the front links next.

So basically, I'm getting Ryan (Flying Ryan Performance) to make a custom tune for my Jeep using the SCT software and tuner. Think of it like the Superchips tuner but rather than pre-loaded tunes, Ryan makes them from scratch tailored to my mods/motor. The SCT tuner is the thing sitting beside the shifters.

However, for Ryan to create a tune properly & safely, he needs to know a few perimeters (Air-to-Fuel ratio, spark advance, fuel trims, manifold pressure, RPM, throttle position etc...). So to get that info I have the Innovate LM-2 datalogger which plugs into the OBD-II port and gets all the required information excluding Air-to-Fuel (which is a sensor that goes in the exhaust manifold - currently waiting to get that welded on). The data logger is the big thing under the radio.

The laptop was really just there to set the datalogger up as it records everything to a SD card which is pretty slick.

In the end, I will have a truck running a tune as aggressive as possible but also 100% safe.

Looks more complicated than it is, really very simple to use.

Confused me too, even had to read the manual!

Err, it's been so long since I done it I kinda forgot. I think I pulled out the centre column (few screws), unclipped the tranny selector cover then I think it was just a screw or clip then a electrical connector for Tow/Haul switch that held the stock one on.

T/C selector, you just put it in 4LO and pull.

Haha, it was late when I setup my office in there, had to have some caffeine on the go! Thankfully, I just need to log and upload/download the tunes, Ryan takes care of the complicated bit!

Nice, I really need to change mine, the clunking coming from these going over bumps now is driving me insane... Did you get them from Summit Racing?
