I haven't had good luck with them either, the pump works ok but the pressure regulator in it really sucks even brand new. had to replace the first one after a month, even in 100 degree weather it to forever to fire even after 2 minutes of sitting. so I decided to make an access panel for the pump since I don't trust them anymore.

It bumps your idle up to 1,000 rpm's in park and neutral for winching and increased electrical loads at idle like lights and winches. Helps in winter when warming up you ride too.

Here is the write up I used. Make sure you wire it according to your model year (it changes).

Thanks Jack, I'll post pics when I get something "finished"

I found this guys site recently and felt really inspired by all the driftwood I'm surrounded by: http://www.jeffrouitto.com/gallery/furniture/index.html

He's not far down the coast from me.

I replaced the passenger side front axle AGAIN! Wheeling yesterday proved too much for my cheap little 10.00 Advance Auto u-joint. Lesson learned.

Anybody selling cromoly dana 30 axles for a couple hundred bucks?

That sucks. I've still gotta change my pass side wheel joint again. Lol. Already re done the drivers side. Lifetime warranty autozone u joints suck. Hopefully the spicer ones last this time

Nope, got stuck in a rut, jeep was tilted a little forward, had only been wheeling about an hour, just got to the end of the trail, never got into any mud.

What size are your u-joints? I heard the newer xj's had a bigger front axle and u-joint, the ones that came with abs, What say you fuzzy britches??
