      Nope. But I hear really good things about Kolak's setup. On JeepForum in the vendor section he's setting up some sort of group buy for them.

      I know.....I want to see some pics of the actual lights before buying a set.

      I was very close at getting the full header - back exhaust from him a month ago......very nice upgrade for the 5.2L.

      That's right. I just read a thread you started over there.

      Once I get my motor replaced I'd like to get his header back system. It sounds awesome, and would go great with the cam I'm having put in.

      I was very tempted when my Magnaflow cat went bad, but couldn't justify the cost when the rest of the system was only 7 months old as well.

      Maybe late next year I'll upgrade.....we'll see how the GC holds out after winter. I am going to try to get pics tonight before it gets dark.....I did a nice polishing cleaner (stripped old wax off), 3M Glaze, and then Zymol wax job on Sunday......it looks awesome.

      If I can get the headlight thing squared away, I'll be done with mods/work that need to be done until I tackle the A/C in March.

      Thanks man. I had fun with it. 98 Cherokee Classic with Rusty's 4.5" lift, trimmed fenders, and 33x12.50s.... otherwise stock. she held up well with a lot of daily driving and weekend beatings.

      I hydroplaned one rainy tennessee night in the middle of the country and slid off the road into a transformer box. I hopped out without a scratch but I claim it a miracle.

      As soon as I can justify/afford 10mpg and another vehicle, I'll prolly pick up another XJ and carry on where she left off...

      Show off!

      That's gonna be a nice upgrade. Is it a direct fit? Any major mods required? ECU swap?

      The 5.9L was offered for one year in the ZJs, 1998, so it's mostly bolt in. From some reasearch I've done I'm looking at a different motor mount on the driver side (different PN), adding my existing clutch operated cooling fan to the 5.9L, and reflashing or getting a performance ECU. Other than that it should be pretty much like replacing the existing motor with the same sized one.

      The only concern I have right now is with my tranny. I have a 44RE and 5.9Ls came with a 46RE (or is it 48RE?) which is a little beefier. I've been told that my stock tranny should hold up just fine with stock 5.9L power.

      Nice....sounds like a fairly simple upgrade.

      Regarding the tranny......I would start to locate a 46 or 48RE. From speaking with techs when I had my 96 Sport with manual tranny, they said my 5 spd manual was a stronger and better tranny than the auto's in both Cherokees and Grand Cherokees.

      Just a comment that stuck with me all these years. Not sure how true it is, but figured I'd share to make you aware just in case.

      Well, Jeep's auto transmissions aren't really known for being the best out there. My tranny was in great condition when I submarined my Jeep, so I'm going to leave it as-is for now. I just don't have the funds to buy a new tranny at this point after I buy the motor. I figure once I toast it I'll upgrade to something stronger.

      Found a lightly used 5.9 locally out of a Durango for $795. Only 56k miles! Other than that all I need to buy is a driver's side motor mount if I want to. Otheriwse I can make the mount from the 5.2L work with a couple washers. All the rest of the parts are coming off of my old 5.2L lump!

      I will probably replace the coil, wires, and plugs while I'm at it. I'm also going to go ahead and buy a K&N FIPK becasue my stock element got trashed by water...

      Can't say no!! '95 YJ, 2.5" RE springs, 1-1/4" shackles, 31" Pro Comp A/Ts, SYE, cv shaft, +more!

      Some action shots from Rausch Creek:

      No trackbars, no swaybar, still hangin' a tire!

      This ledge looked even nastier from above! Only tagged the one rear spring coming off it.

      Black level trails with open difs and 31" tires results in this type of situation:

      As does wheeling with a rig like this:

      All glass CJ7, custom built SOA w/stretched wheelbase, 14bolt rear, D60 front, 5.13 gears, Ox lockers, 38.5" Swampers, D300/NP205 doubled up, 128:1 crawl ratio, 304 and 5 spd coming soon.
