      Breandan, lookin' good! I'm glad you noticed a difference on your 6 cyl. I didn't notice a whole lot on my 4 banger w/the electric fan. I'm running an older single speed Taurus fan with a Mr Gasket relay/temp control kit. The shroud fits excellently, and with a 185* t-stat, the Jeep runs cool as can be.

      Look at all that room!!
      (Sorry for the crappy low-res photo, it got goofed when the admin re-sized)

      I also added an override switch for those deep water crossing:

      YJSAABMAN, thanks for the good words, it tough when you have so many projects going on at the same time. yes the fans helped out quite a bit, it deffiately took some stress off of the engine. i see that you have alot of room in that engine bay!!! looks like the perfect candidate for a swap

      Here are a few shots of what i'm rollin' around in up in Ontario Canada.... I help run the http://www.krawlerz.com off-road enthusiasts club. Check out the forums if you want. All these rigs get wheeled. The CJ's are my old man's. The YJ and ZJ are mine.
      1975 CJ-5, fiberglass tub and one piece front-end. SBC 383 V8 stroker with lots of goodies on it (400+hp/400+ lb ft.) muncie 4spd, NP205, six point cage tied into the frame SOA with 40 inch swampers. Warn Winch etc. etc. This thing will lift the front tires clean off the pavement.




      1980 CJ-5, still beating on the original 258 I-6, T-176 4spd, Dana 300 case, 31" x 12" tires, fiberglass one piece front end and tub. Lots of mods to come to this thing. Dad built this jeep frame up when I was about 5 years old, been in the family a long time. Remains the same as it was then to this day, will be on 33's or 35's by spring.




      My 1995 YJ project. 60,000kms original on the frame and drivetrain. Fiberglass tub right now. Have an SYE t-case, ~4inches of lift, a 4.7L stroker kickin' around here that i'm contemplating tossing in it or the little CJ-5. Gotta finish this project, it's becoming a garage ornament.


      And my pride and joy Daily Driver ZJ. 1995 Grand Cherokee Ltd. 4.0L with a mint body and all the ltd interior options. 4.5" Rubicon Express lift, 33x12.50x15 Pro Comp X-terrains on Pro Comp alloys. JKS discos, Stainless header, Stainless Magnaflow exhaust (loud as all hell). Soon to have front and rear bumpers, fender trimming, flares, winch etc. Still in the build process and with it being the DD and seeing running duty all over Ontario (2.5 hr drive to visit the gf on odd weekends) it's hard to find time to wrench on it.

      Nice Ass shot next to a rock cut south of Bancroft...


      And here's a shot of the gf's rig. It's a 97 TJ on 32's in this pic (pic's a lil grainy, sorry) now up on 33's.

      ^ funny thing is, no dub for me anymore. DD is the ZJ. Used to be the 96 4dr Golf Turbo Diesel. (<-long story with the bad luck on that car) so I went back to what I was familiar with. I owned a 91 YJ Renegade that was written off years ago by a taxi driver running a red light. Blind intersection, he ran the red and I T-boned him shoving my driveshaft through the t-case and bending the leafs, cracking the frame etc. Was lucky to be alright really. Anyway yeah, it's sort of just years of culmative jeep collecting in my family lol.

      Nah, no swap. No need to go fast in the Jeep. The 4 banger's never let me down, it saves be from having to over-engineer everything else, and helps keep the rig light. I do have another one I'll be building a bit w/a Clifford cam and a little headwork.

      Got this 2004 Grand Cherokee Special Edition, on Saturday.
      Too bad the Check Engine Light came on today. Code came back for o2 sensors in both banks. Should be covered under the warranty.

      EDIT: I checked and there is a Tech Service Bulletin for flash updating the PCM for false O2 heater Codes with the 4.0L engine in 2004 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Great. That's the exact issue for o2 heater codes. Where can I find that and print it out for them if they give me a hard time?
      Thanks for the help. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I have to make a for sale thread but I have some stuff still left over. (best top bikini w/no drill channel, best top duster cover, spare tire bike rack, detachable side mirror)

      Haha, yeah I sent him PM about buying it Mostly found in late 94 and very few 95 ever came through in 4.0L 5 speed option. Roughly 1500 ever made IIRC.

      There was the odd 93 in there too that had it. But post 96 I don't believe there were any with the 5spd option.

      I've thought this over many times, myself. I'm pretty sure i could sell the cabby for enough to build my axles. But I just can't bring myself to it. The cabby is too much fun to drive and I've only autoxed once since I bought the Jeep 4.5 yrs ago.
