Im assuming if someone uses the splash guard there is probably no way to use the front skid?

No it is supposed to be used like that. Only thing is that you will not use the plastic body clips that hold the mat up under the radiator support cause the bolts that hold the front skid up will hold up both. That is how I run mine. You will still use the plastic body clips in the other places around the mat.

Default Water getting on floorboards

Iíve been dealing with my floorboards getting wet for a long time now. Every time it rains and every time I wash the Jeep I get water on the floors. I decided it was enough once I saw traces of white mold on the driverís side carpet

I took the trim off on the driverís side interior and had someone spray a hose at the door seams. Water poured in like a river.

The previous owner cut a chunk out of the weather stripping on the door and crossed the wires for the pod light straight across the weatherstripping.

I decided that was the cause. So I tore into the wiring and rerouted it through the rubber boot on the door into the cab. Not too pretty, but after I get a new door seal I shouldnít be taking on water on the driverís side.





Attempted to seal the huge chunk taken out with liquid nailsó total failure

Havenít posted on here in a while. College has been busy, and I went through a break-up.

Jeep is doing fine, but I havenít done anything to it because Iíve been broke due to no income

Iíve been wheeling it hard lately; I introduced my new girlfriend to Jeeping and now sheís a fan too

I finally got around to washing it today, after it was covered in mud for like a week and a half.

Looking forward to doing more work on it soon. Finals are coming up and Iíll be done with my fall semester after next week.

With Christmas coming and my winter break, I of course have more plans for work on the Jeep.

So I got extremely lucky a couple weeks back and found one of these in a Ď95 Cherokee Country at the junkyard. I immediately took the console itself but I still have to go back for the wiring harness and mounting bracket, but Iíll likely sell it once I get the rest. Console only cost me $15!

Last time I was off road, my rear wheel ripped a fender flare off and I didnít realize it until I got home. Iíve since picked up another flare from the junkyard and painted it. I noticed that there was some surface rust developing on the quarter panel under the flare, so I cleaned it up before I put the new flare on.

My Jeep has made a slight knocking noise since I bought it. I always thought it was piston slap, but I saw a video of a Jeep that had loose flex plate bolts and the sound was exactly the same as my Jeep. I took the inspection cover off and removed all four bolts one at a time and put red loctite on them to make sure they wouldnít come loose in the future. The sound is definitely quieter, not sure if it completely went away though.

I bet it would be tricky trying to put that overhead in an '00. Just so you know there are 2 brackets for the '96 and down overheads.

Yeah had the same problem with my '00 under the rear passenger side fender flare. Only was worse but not so bad that the fender flare is not on there securely. I POR 15'ed it. What rust problems I do have my on XJ are on the passenger side. I have this little theory that is because all the crap ends up on the side of the road that help rust along.

Yeah I also figured it would be difficult to try to make that work in my Jeep so I plan on selling it. Thanks for the link! Definitely wonít have to search everywhere for the value now.

Also, interesting theory, makes sense.

I went back to the junkyard today and picked up the rest of the stuff to go with the console. Now just have to post it up for sale.
