A lot of kudos to TJXJWJ, his WJ is the nicest I've ever seen. So a lot of the work going into mine is from him!

First off, bought it from the original owner, older guy. Was completely factory. Now has 280,000km. It's a Limited, 4.7 H.O. Fully loaded.
Did all the necessary repair work, new brakes etc. Cut the muffler out for now, so it's just straight pipe all the way back. Tinted taillights. Installed a full LED interior light kit 5000k.

Day I bought it home..

Nice work! Does the shifter handle come off with just brute force like in my old XJ, or is there a fastener/trick to it?

Shifter comes off with a whole lot of brute force. As well as you will probably rip the wires for the o/d switch out with it. I opened my sunroof and sat on the console to get a good grip. All the forums I checked said that it doesn't come off! I proved them wrong lol!

The shifter knob I have has an o/d switch too so I just pulled the wires a bit further out and soldered them to the new switch. Basically they just rip out of the old knob and then you have to fish for them.

Installed my AFE Stage 2 cold air intake! Had to modify the shield quite a bit to make it fit but it's in there!

I so want to ditch that big @ss baseball sized knob for a nice B&M or Hurst T handle with a button. The horror stories have always stopped me along with the lockout linkage issue. I don't care about the brake lockout I just don't want to hit reverse while banging gears.

I had some trial and error with the height adjustment on mine for the same issue. Sometimes the interlock wouldn't work. Other times I couldn't get my key out. If you play around with the height and then just lock it in and figure out a nice way to cover up the shaft you won't have any issues.

Oh and if you find a nice t-handle hurst or b&m Let me know where!!
