Lifted jeeps look pretty good. Does that intake go through the firewall??

Yeah, kinda weird I thought. Assume it works similar to a "snorkel".
Taken it up a dirt hill by my house did awesome in 2wd.
Funny thing is the jeep is stiffer then my Subie. Lol

Haha. I don't think so.
Fits her life style better, compaired to the 02 1.8t money pit she had before this.

Its always funny how jeeps with smaller tires and lift look bigger than mine for some reason. It looks like a nice setup!

I agree it needs at least 33's
But yes solid buy in my opinion.

Meh, unless your gonna wheel it a lot, 31's work well, and even if you do wheel it a lot, I wheeled the HELL out of mine on 31s, just find my members gallery here about my XJ for proof haha

Anything bigger than 31s and you'll want to re-gear anyways. This way, she *cough*you*cough* can haul ass down some trails.

That thing got a tranny cooler!?!

Yeah, 31's will do just fine for anything her or I will do, 33's would compliment the lift better.
Ill check it out

I'm only assuming yes
Behind the grille I can see the rad, ac, and a smaller one with lines from it to granny.

So the jeep wouldn't start yesterday.
she drove it a few hours prier to the no start.
if you give it gas while cranking it will kinda start, But once you let off the throttle it dies.
After searching, my first thought is maybe the battery is not putting out proper volts to the ecu causing the injectors to not fire, or clogging fuel filter, or fuel is on its way out.
Open to thoughts/suggestions?

So I pulled the battery out, cause I was going to have it tested.
decided to try giving it a charge, but thought hey why not put the battery back in and try starting it, sure enough started first try.
I didn't do anything besides remove, and re install the same battery.
There was no corrosion, everything was tight.
