Stick an AX15 in place of th AW4, you need the space anyway.

yeah, I have a 4" drop on my bump stops, RE 4.5 leafs, 1.5" shackle, and sad to say 1" steel blocks, and I get some axle wrap. There is a mount for a traction bar Dave put on the 9" that I could use, but it doesn't bother me much going on Home Depot runs. ;)

My alternator on my 1989 cherokee has stopped putting out. I noticed A large white resistor has broken loose. The resistor is located on the left fender. what is this resistor for

I have the Tera 4:1, but didn't opt for the 2lo option (should have), and I have been very happy with it.
The case front half is stouter than stock, but it retains the stock rear half.

Did you ask them what they were smokin'? cause it'd be great
to get the guys I play poker with to hit that pipe.

255 is what my rear 5150's are I think. Definitely too lite for the front.

#17 Re: Jeep Cherokee XJ Mechanical Questions » 1998 Overheating Cherokee Classic » 06-23-2011 11:41:51

I have a 89 with 4.0. It started overheating on me. First I changed
the thermostat, and fan clutch. still over heats. On mine the
electric fan only comes on when the AC is on. Should the electric fan
run without the AC on?

"maybe a bad connection or shorted wire is causing a false TPS signal to
the ECU?"

I had a similar diagnosis. Maybe for once we were right?! :-D

Question, the IAC fails open on the XJ since it idles while
disconnected? Good to know if true!

My wifes yota failed closed. It would start but required immediate
of skinny pedal to keep it running. F'n yota's!

#20 Re: Jeep Cherokee XJ Suspension and Lift Discussion » my jeep won't start Help!!! » 06-10-2011 15:46:29

is it running at all or dying immediately. mine died immediately and it turned out to be the security system killing it. might want to check that too. had to have mine reset at the dealer.

Are you having trouble with the transfer case linkage or getting the
light to go out after you shift into 2WD?

#22 Re: Jeep Cherokee XJ Suspension and Lift Discussion » '99 Cherokee quirks » 11-04-2008 16:25:21

it's probably too late, but have you changed the filter and fluid?
had it flushed?
these trannies usually last a long time

as for the popping, my very first thought - how are your balljoints and tierod ends? you
don't want to learn you should've replaced them the hard way! that
could really ruin your day.
