My 99 WJ has the crack prone 0331 head on it and I believe it is cracked or cracking. I've got a 94 parts Cherokee that I can nab the head and anything else I need off of it. It is a 7120 casting.

Re: '99 Limited HVAC Fan Troubles

Pretty sure. It blows the same out the dash vents on heat and AC.

Where would they be at to check? Would that require pulling the dash as well?

Re: Limited Dash/Door Panel Wood Trim

I picked up some 3M Scotchprint brushed aluminum. It is basically the same thing as the 3M Di-Noc.

Re: Limited Dash/Door Panel Wood Trim

Do they make it in anything other than carbon fiber? I was wanting to go with the brushed aluminum look. I don't think I'd like the carbon fiber with black interior.

I would recommend Bilstein shocks. They build their shocks and valve them specific to each vehicle.

If you have the NV 245/247/249 transfer cases, there is no aftermarket substitute for the Mopar fluid.

Re: JK Rubicon wheel fitment

Re: JK Rubicon wheel fitment

Not a problem.

I swapped those tires out for a set of 235/65/17 tires and it looks much better, even with the 2" lift. I haven't decided if I want to take the 2" lift off or not yet.

'99 Oil Pressure Gauge

When I turn the key to the on position in my '99 WJ, the oil pressure raises to about 20 PSI. That is before the engine is running.

Is that normal? If it isn't, how do I fix it?
