Got inspired by AA's '98 XJ Limited build & recently did a little eBayin'.. most interesting package I've ever received




Welcome to Limited country. Bling bling



Old, cracked & fuzzy



Next to new(er) wood grained goodness. A/c vents included so now I have spares



GPS & iphone mount took their toll on my original even after several attempts to bond the plastic back together.
You can see cracks on either side of the bezel's tab insert & where I wedged a strip of cotton from an old argyle sock between the mount in attempt to keep rattles away. I hate rattles


Thanks for the link Adriaan! Even though I don't have baller leather seats or two toned woody door panels, I'm stoked how it looks



& no more squeaky rattle on my drive to work


Got the garage all to my Jeep now

Jeep Fuel Rail and Injector cover kit arrived yesterday




Kit covers all the bases



Time to get to work



First, get a fuel rag ready and relieve fuel pressure at the Schrader valve then disconnect the fuel rail.. I used this quick disconnect tool purchased at Vatozone for $11 (gray one works for XJ's)



After removing my throttle, cruise control and transmission kick down cables, the instructions say to tape and number your injectors which I'm glad I did



Factory injector O rings were crusty so good timing to lube up the supplied new ones and pop them on. Resprayed my fuel rail in semi gloss black even though I know it's gonna get covered up soon



Wrapped the fuel rail and injectors then reinstalled back in to the intake with plenty of lube. All but one of the plug retainers broke off on removal from endless heat cycling but they went back in snug so keeping my fingers crossed.. I'll get a new injector harness when upgrading to 4 hole injectors soon



All buttoned up and ready to roll




Took a quick trip to the 101 and got the Jeep up to 75mph with no fuel leaks. The real test will be a hot restart out on the trail.. hopefully this solves my fuel vaporization issue.
