Default Newbie to forums.

Just singed up, I've had Jeeps before, All Grand Cherokees. A 95, and am on my second 99. My 95 just simple rusted away, and wore out. The first 99 was a good one, straight 6 motor. It got T-Boned, and totaled. The second 99 I have now has the 4.7 v8. Got it for a good price, as it needed all the brakes, clock spring, crank sensor, and iac. And heater core....That was an adventure in itself!... PO used after market sensors, and could never get it to run right. All are factory parts now. It came from salt free state, so rust free! All that's left is the ac, re-sealed everything I could find except the pump itself. Think it's leaking. I used the dye, but it seems they did before so I can't tell where the leaks are with the blacklight. I'll have to clean the bay up to re-check. Motor replaced 70,000 miles ago and the tranny just before that, so I think it'll be a good rig up here in Northern Wi.

AloooooooHa! From The Big Island of Hawaii!!
Where the Lava flow is a few miles from my home!
I just purchased a '93 Grand Cherokee for $350! She runs great, needs a paint job, some little fixes and Luv! She is my first jeep, if I don't count my ex's old jeep that rotted in his driveway!
Ok..... So I'm a female, blonde and a retired RN, who really loves fixer upper cars [I have a '72 Beetle and a '71 Chevy 1-ton truck with a 454 under her hood!)....
'Cept I don't know that much about fixing cars so youtube is my go to source! lol
My bestest friend who was kind enough to impart some of his auto-mechanic skills on me before the PunkyAss moved to the Mainland, so here I am! [Be prepared for LoTsa questions]
Mahalo Nui Loa!
Thank You All So Much!

Default New WJ owner in Missouri

Hello all. Just purchased my one owner 198,000 mile GC Laredo from one of my friends. Had a noisy 247 Xfer case and I swapped it with a LKQ salvage 242HD from a 2001 GC. Reused the rear driveshaft after installing a 1330 series spicer yoke out of a GM product mated to the 1310 jeep yoke with a odd size u-joint cross from Oreilley's. Also replaced the front CV driveshaft with a pick n pull unit due to bad cv joint. Front and rear driveshafts will be Tom Woods once the 6" lift is installed {planning on COR long arm}. The 4.7 ran great but due to mileage I replaced the timing set (all parts) with a new Cloyes set. New Autolite platinum plugs and now the beast has had about 1,000 miles on it since. Loving it! Only problem is that my wife does too!

Greetings.

Retired U.S. Coast Guard Chief...just bought a 2000 GC Laredo that needs some work, but will be fun once it’s ready to rock and roll.
