If your fan is not going on replace the relay, temp sensor and test the fan first. Before trying goofy wiring shit like me.

Update, got new cps put in, tomorrow after work must give the battery a little charge and put the front driveshaft back in and I should be back in service.

Fuck I miss my heep. :gonk:
Thanks man, I'll do that.

Did my CPS last year, actually took quite a while to figure out the problem...
Just throw on a flameproof suit if you decide to actually post on Pirate. :lol: I made the mistake of ONCE posting in "General 4x4" something that shoulda been in "Newbie General 4x4" and I got torn apart on there. Nowadays I just hang out in "Chit Chat" on there and the outdoor/sports forum. :lol:

That's the same boat I'm in with building the buggy. Remodel, wedding, honeymoon, so much going on - not enough $ or enough time. The Jeep currently runs, has 4wd and gets me where I need to go in the meantime. The buggy will still get built when things settle down, and then it will be AWN for sure because I'm going to beat it like it owes me back child support.

285 75 r 16. Around 33s.

Once I get my coils on it should appear to fit better as it will bring my front up to 4.5 to match my rear. With all the triming and folding ive done they fit nicely, its just hard to tell with the PA required flairs on. :roll:

Have you gotten to hit any trails with it yet? Those tires should get you just about anywhere you want to go.

Haven't made it to the offroad park yet. But had it up in coal country in some old quarries and nice trails. It took everything I threw at it. Even with the tires running low on tread.

Also, helped show me I need to bump stop better before I hit the park.

Last weekend i redid the cooling system on my brother in laws 97 grand cheroke. New radiator and hoses, thermostat and gasket.His water pump is ok for now. Did a half ass flush of the system. I think parts total was $200 or so local autozone or parts plus i forget.
I fly the flag of black and red, the sight fills you with fear and dread. For you know with it i will come.

I love Rusty's stuff, but be warned. If you buy his gas tank skid, it's a bastard to install. I have one on my TJ and we fought it forever to get it on even though my buddy helping me install it is a professional mechanic who fabs rock-crawling buggies from scratch.

You'll have to let me know next time you're coming up my way. Maybe we can link up and do some wheeling.

I was here (click link below) this weekend. Not really difficult, just one of the COOLEST places I've ever wheeled. My 10 year old daughter recorded the video, so forgive the dashboard shots. :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwEsoGNfO-I" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Here's another link to some video my daughter took (and edited :D ) when we went through the same tunnel last fall. It's a longer video as we go through it from a different direction, turn around, and then go through it again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5cbMCaEa_s" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Edited to add:
I recall you mentioning in an older thread you had land in Brandonville. As luck would have it, the trail to get to the tunnel begins in Brandonville. Next time you're coming up to your land (and you have an hour or two to spare) let me know in advance, and I'll take you through the tunnel. I think you'll enjoy it.

Damn you got some big ol yams. Did you ford that water sight unseen? Or did you check it out, first? From the video it don't look like you can see depth.

I want to play in that, ill let ya know when I can get up. Not going to be doing muxh till I get new tires.
