Nice rig! I have the exact same xj. About your a/c staying on, mine was only working on high #4 setting but i could turn mine off. I replaced the a/c volume acuator located under the pass side glove box. Theres a black cover, remove it and there's a little white actuator with spring on it. Very easy to change and you can probably find one at your local junkyard. hope this helps.

thats amazing that it flexes that much with the stock track bar, is there a drop bracket or is it relocated or anything?

The old 242 that got stuck in 4x4

Junk Yard special 231 trans case amazing what a little cleaning will do

This is the new exaust cat free







While I was Under the Jeep looking for what could be causeing some of my problems and i found that my front drive shaft is blown so removing that helped alot with the vibrations that i was having

but the jeep is still shifting late and i feel like it is still under powered for when i got it
