      Mentioned the Xterra to the wife, she is not against the truck as a whole, but evidently the built in roof rack sucks. She sells and installs Thule for her job so I'll take her at her word.

      Any...

      Interesting idea. I don't think the wife will go for it though. She used to sell used Minis, and is not a fan. Not necessarily looking for something that is the same size as the XJ, just something...

      My folks owned two Bajas (both with an assortment of issues), and have since moved on to a Gladiator (which they love). I would not wish a Baja on anyone. My wife would be better off with that...

      This is very true. Rust and corrosion kill many a great vehicle up here. Pretty sure whatever we decide on will require a road trip to get it.

      Thanks but 4wd is a must. We are in Maine.



      It's the truck itself that she wants updated. The XJ suffers from poor heat, heavy steering, and is getting rusty. At the minimum, it will need a new...

      For her, it is all about height. Trying to put a 16' kayak on top is challenging when she is alone. The XJ has a 3" lift so it is about the same height as the 4th gen.



      That looks nice. Where...

      Modern is a relative term. It is more modern than her 2001 XJ. She isn't looking for modern as in bluetooth, backup cameras, lane assist, etc. She is just looking for something a bit newer for...

      Is a 4th gen 4Runner the answer?

      My wife is entertaining the idea of selling her XJ for something more modern. She still wants an SUV that has off road capabilities, but also has a somewhat smaller size like her XJ since she puts...

      New parts, new look.

      Added Delta Vehicle Systems radius arms up front to correct caster for a 4" lift. Also added their rear panhard bar lift bracket which helps to return the panhard bar back to...

      Find an empty parking lot and grab something soft like a big cardboard box. Practice backing up to the box at different speeds. Notice how long it takes you to hit it after it disappears from your...

      I've been a CDL trainer for quite some time. I train operators to drive public transit buses, and some of them to get their class B licenses.

      I start everybody out with a cones course. Through...

      It may work. I'm not well versed in swapping parts between IH I6's and Jeep I6's.

      That one looks correct, but dropping them an email or calling would confirm. I bought their plug wires too, but I don't think they are worth it.

      It's possible that this is due to a weak spark. There is less fuel atomization when the manifold is cold so the spark has a harder time lighting off the mixture. DUI sells a nice distributor for IH's...

      If I remember correctly, this mod requires sealing/welding up some of the water jacket ports.



      I think this may require a modded case to run a crank position sensor. There may be another way to...

      I don't really understand the door storage thing. Doors come off; leave them at home. There's no provision to store the hard top when it's off so why the fuss over the doors? If I wanted to carry the...
