    Re: Rubicon wheels on XJ

    So switching to these new 17" wheels would not be a problem?

    It looks like the 245 70 17's would be fine, or even a little bigger 255 or 265.

    I don't mind if the speedo reads higher than...

    Rubicon wheels on XJ

    Currently on the family XJ we have plain Wrangler wheels with 245/70R16, along with 1" spacers to convert the lug pattern. 3" lift front and rear. There is more room for a bigger tire, but I don't...

    Re: Motor mount install

    I used a block and jack to raise the engine, but was having a lot of difficulty getting the cross bolt out, even with adjustments to the height, that I backed off and stopped. Since I didn't have any...

    Re: Sanity check - tire and lift chart

    Thanks. The wheels on there now, plus the spare, were acquired that way and has some Yokohama something-or-others on them. They're worn out now. I didn't realize the lug pattern difference until I...

    Sanity check - tire and lift chart

    Time for tires.

    Clean '01 XJ Limited, 206k, and may sell it before too long. 3" all around with ZJ V8 coils + 1" spacers, S-10 bastard pack, take-off Sahara shocks, and older 16" Wrangler wheels...

    Motor mount install

    Have motor mounts to install, but I don't have anyone to help shove the engine around to get the holes lined up. Made an attempt on the passenger side, getting as far pound out the main bolt most of...
  8. Re: Intermittent rotor/pad noise when turning

    Wheel bearings were fine. Outside pad on driver side was worn down to the plate. Rest of the pads were close to time for replacement as well. Replaced bad and rotor, cleaned the pins, new rubber...
  9. Re: Intermittent rotor/pad noise when turning

    Thanks. I'm being a little lazy looking before leaping, but it's 90+ and humid. There's no A/C in the Jeep, and no A/C where I work on it; the less sweating like a pig the better.
  10. Intermittent rotor/pad noise when turning

    Starting to get some intermittent light metallic rubbing noise from the left front when turning. The noise pulses like there are high's and low's like a warp.

    Re: Radiator AT cooling hose - upper

    Thanks. I'll give that a try. It didn't seem misaligned, but it's permitted to sag more now because the new radiator doesn't have a mounting location for the bracket that holds the line up. I'll...

    Radiator AT cooling hose - upper

    Put in a radiator last night. Hadn't done that repair before. Went fine, but have noticed a small drip of transmission fluid from the upper transmission cooling line fitting area.

    Weird oil pressure

    Usually I'm at 30-60 psi depending on RPM's. Lately one of two things is happening:

    Starts at 20 when cold and stays there for 5 minutes and then rises to normal ranges.

    More often, it...

    Static pressures 80psi @ 70 degrees.
    Low side around 20psi.
    High side 170psi.

    Re: Evaporator - any magical fix?

    Nope. No leaks. If I remember the Tech correctly, I have 18 degrees going in and 70-ish at the dash. Pressures are all within spec. There's cold, but it's cooling.
