Project Six Shooter V2 / ROUSH Prototype Tech
2000 Grand Cherokee 4.0 w/Select-trac
All the skid bolts are accessible from underneath. The reciever used 3 of the skid bolts. I pre-cracked em loose so I shouldn't have issues getting em out....although I can't say the same for the last bolt....ended up breaking the in-frame nut loose with the impact and had to grind the head off. Good thing is, that particular bolt wasn't used for the fuel tank skid so I may have gotten lucky there. Gonna eventually put a different rear bumper on it so I'll be able to address any issues then.You and me both are waiting for some decent weather as i've got a long list of BS projects to do myself including home, property, lawn tractor, ATV and vehicles.
If the Grand is anything like my XJ, the skid if not already installed from the factory needs a nut strip installed in the drivers side frame channel which requires removing the bumper.
How ever there's another way to do this without removing the bumper.
You can get i think they're 3/8's maybe 1/2 inch i forget carriage bolts and fish them through the space between the bumper and frame using square hole washers to mate with the carriage bolt squares.
This method was used when my fuel pump had to be replaced by a local hitch shop which did not require removing the bumper which would of been a royal PITA at least on an XJ.
When done both my OEM tank skid and hitch were intact.
Speaking of bad weather, been using that as an excuse to tackle my 2002 Yamaha Big Bear 4x4 ATV which developed a crank no start after plowing heavy snow off my driveway. I did determine within a few minutes its a no spark issue.
After looking at the shop manual it looks like i have to tear the whole dam thing apart just to get at the connectors for testing to see if its a stator, CDI, ignition coil or something else like hopefully a connector or fuse.
Anyhow i digress, keep us updated on your Grand project.
But for sure! The updates will continue. Would like to get to the point when the mods can begin and its less fixing things!
