Welcome to Limited country. Bling bling

attachment.php?attachmentid=4153&stc=1&d=1556913122

 

 

Old, cracked & fuzzy

attachment.php?attachmentid=4154&stc=1&d=1556913122

 

 

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

attachment.php?attachmentid=4155&stc=1&d=1556913122

 

 

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

attachment.php?attachmentid=4157&stc=1&d=1556913122

 

 

& no more squeaky rattle on my drive to work:cool:

attachment.php?attachmentid=4158&stc=1&d=1556913122

 

Got the garage all to my Jeep now

Thanks Steve! It's a far cry from your Garage Wonderland but I do enjoy the extra space:)

The Jeep was heavily chiefed in prior to my purchasing & I'm still finding burnt remnants to this day:rolleyes:

Jeep Fuel Rail and Injector cover kit arrived yesterday

 

010378-JeepFuelRailKit-Package-Front__38127.1497280156.jpg?c=2&imbypass=on

 

 

Kit covers all the bases

Time to get to work

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4161&stc=1&d=1557164064

 

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

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4164&stc=1&d=1557164064

 

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

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4165&stc=1&d=1557164064

 

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

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4166&stc=1&d=1557164332

 

All buttoned up and ready to roll

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4167&stc=1&d=1557164332

 

 

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.
