I wonder if that can be “added” like you can with the GX460s.

In my experience, not very. Out of the 15 or so XJs between my group of friends only one was bad enough that it needed to be changed. All of em had at least 200k by the time we finished with them.

Its a massive undertaking on the 97-01 trucks. Whole dashboard needs to come out. I think its 8-9 hours book time.

Yea, I didn’t have the thing much longer after that anyway. Heater core in a XJ requires windshield removal (!!)

Those have the same hockey puck trans mounts as the D1? Fucking massive pain in the butthole those are. I had to unbolt the motor mounts (and I just replaced them at that point) to get them to line up.

That would make sense. I mean, I wouldn’t watch youtube videos of a bunch of calm and collected fellows getting from one place to another without any issues.

The trans on these is generally terrible, but aside from that no weird issues. You have selec-trac so you don’t have to worry about the full-time 4x4 seizing up. HVAC is the blend door, happens to almost all of them. Google it.

Nice trip! We have beach driving here, but man I do get jealous of ALL that beach you guys get to drive. What PSI you guys run? When I watch the 4wd Action vids on YouTube they always say they drop to like 18 PSI and then I see em bogged in the sand all the time. I know those guys carry serious loads, but over here Read more

Don’t buy the cheapest pads, the 2nd one up at the parts store is usually fine. Something semi-metallic. Take your time, do one side at a time so you can reference the other side if you get stuck on the reinstall. Read more

Nope, never. Can’t afford it. Except for tires/alignments/inspections; only time I’ve had a shop do work was warranty or recall for my wife’s car, and when I had a short lease on a VW oil changes and whatever were covered. I actually did the alignments on my Jeeps and Discovery myself since they were solid front axle Read more
