  1. bingo ty vm for the help
  2. I have talked about this on other forums with no sucess. History 2006 lj tanks over flows when ever filled up Not sure what causes this?? I pulled the inner fender and checked the vent and fill hose for kinks damage- everything was fine. When ever we fill up the tank top top it will splash about .25 gal out and down my flare(grrrrrrrrr) I thought the vent hose was kinked at first but nope. possibly a problem with the roll over check ball system? Any ideas are great Thanks Tyler
  3. hum for the hefty price I will just use mulitple units for now. Between my rhino and my nuvi and the wifes android phone i think we about have it all covered. Wish the rhino had caught on morer I love using it in groups with it showing real time where everyone else is at.
  4. yea that tru cool looks like a beast. I wonder how it does in front of a full ac condenser and a winch for air flow?
  5. Thanks Diane. Yea I may try that or put up with it till the 33" are toast drop on the BL throw some of that barrier in and pop on some 35". I remember my other tj's getting warm on warm days. I do live in hell er St George, and this is my 1st auto so it is all probably a combo of issues. The cats should be fine. It is low miles over all 66k, and I have plenty of power for the 4.0. This winter I will be doing some more mods along with a tranny cooler, rubi crawler, and some new axles with 4.56 gears. So I'll just wear boots till I get everything gather lol. THe cooler will be going on soon tho
  6. yep still fully carpeted atm. factory flooring all in place
  7. The heat issue is the trans hump right at the gas pedal. Makes my right foot hot, not a lil- a lot. I will get under there and review the exhaust route, but unless there is something very odd on the 06 I don't remember then, the exhaust crosses over to the pass side and should not be up that high. It does get worse when driving on hills or in areas when i crawl and have low air flow. It is such a pita I have been looking into fabbing up some old style kicker vents down at the foot rest level of my tub. This is my 1st auto jeep so I was surprised at how much heat there seems to be comming off of that area. This is also my newest jeep so maybe I am taking something for granted/memory and not seeing an issue I have glassed over.
  8. Just a heads up, the forestry gang just popped out new maps this week here in Utah. High qual locals for the surrounding 2-4 counties. I was up at a spot near Veyo looking at the volcanos(wondering how much crap would spill if i took 6 black tires and lit them on fire on top of one ) and the kiosks were full of shiny new maps. So I am off to their office tomorrow to grab what I can
  9. ok throw out how ya liked your if you have used one. There are a lot of companies out there making them. I plan to mount it in front of the radiator and condenser. I would like about the largest one possible that will fit and work well. Getting tired of wearing boots so my feet don't burn while I go up hills. The tunnel next to the gas pedal gets freaking hot. Wondering how much a 1" bl may help with this also- IF anyone has done that for heat reasons?? 2006 lj auto 33" on 4" lift
  10. watched the show with the fc in it. They took a whole interior of a jk(front half) and dropped it in there. Guess they had a bit of a time withe the steering tho. I remembered the tipping with the original, so did they, they weighted it and balanced it out at all 4 corners with a 60/40 weight split front to rear.
  11. yea lets hope all the little dictators out there get those. We will not see those used for the U.S. military in any form. without a v hull to minimize mine blasts carry capacity of a squad of people with gear, the ability to be up armored and fit inside a 53 helo it just wont fit the bill. The no close windows(think down 1") to help relieve over pressure from IED blasts and the possibility of being modular. Slice vehicle into 4 quarters, so it can be repaired faster. upper body then driver front quarter, pass front driver rear pass rear. come apart like one section so 5 total legos bolt together to make 1 jeep. The small size of tubing for the cage would be a downer for using the 40mm grenade launcher too, probably rattle the 4 doors right off
  12. any good spots to get one at? I was looking at rock auto but the details are light. It looks like I would be buying the knob and not the switch. now that would be anoying
  13. nice set up. only thing I wonder about is between the come along the strap and the hi lift, couldn't you ditch the come along as redundant gear?
  14. I have the same sort of set up. I have the smitty build molle hanger for my tail gate. I have put one of my ole mil butt packs on it with a selection of emergency items inside it. My fire starting all weather kit. some 1st aid( we have a nice mil 1st aid store in town to get stuff cheap at) a back up compass, some stripped down MRE's. I need to add a poncho to it also. I also have my etool and a mag light on the rack system so I am good to go with the jeep atm. I have 5 gal of water in an anti freeze jug for radiator duty, but I should change jugs so the water can pull double duty if needed really.
  15. Ok when I bought my LJ it only had high speed on the heater. I thought no problem, new resistor pack and good to go. I ordered a resistor from rock auto and slapped it in. I still have high spd and now once in a while low spd works but nothing else. I cleaned my selector switch and checked for any obvious shorts without finding any. So I am down to an unknown style of problem or a bad resistor pack from rock auto. I would love to have some other speed choices so it doesn't sound like a c-130 taking off inside the jeep every time I turn on the ac. Any ideas/ feedback would be great I'm about out of em myself. Thanks Irish
  16. George, Just went back to the pic's and wow there is no room to spare at all. Never had an xj yet, but that is a surprise to see. If the switches you plan don't help out, I was wondering if you might be able to make some 1" spacers and move the condenser forward an inch? ( if there is any room between the grill and condenser) Good luck with the heat issue, I think I may have to stick to my LJ and comando's in the future, not enough play room in an xj
  17. after looking back thru the pic's I would have to say your heat issue is more of a problem stemming from that condesnser and the 3 fan set up. Just because those 3 fans move 4500cfm doesn't mean they are. with those 3 fans on there I don't see much room for free flow additional cooling as you go down the road. That radiator is sandwiched between a huge condenser the 3 fans and brackets. Also I see what looks like a gap in that shroud at the top. This is going to allow a lot of air to bypass the top of the of the the radiator. could it be the condenser is so beat up it wont let enough air through? I would borrow someones tarus set up with a full shroud and see if this fixes the issue. I prefer the Lincoln 2 spd fans they move like 3500 at low and 5500 at high, it is nice for when the ac is ripping on a hot day. Disclaimer- this is just my purely official internet opinons after looking thru some semi blurry pictures about a vehicle I have never really seen. so this and a 1.35 will get ya a med cup o joe. When I use to bracket race my chevelle did the same thing and it was my crappy home made shroud letting too much air by the radiator. IF you can get a lazer temp gun, you may wish to over heat it and spot check both sides of the radiator thermostat housing hoses and water pump to see if you can find a "hot spot" before tearing down anything else.
  18. thanks all and the lees sounds interesting. Hope to meet some of you all soon
  19. Hi everyone. Was doing some research and found this site. I was doing crawling for years but found with a family I wanted to get them out and about to see the amazing stuff thats over the road and out of site. SO I sould the tj and picked up an LJ for the extra room and started building it. One kink we got the lj for more room without thinking that our 9 yr old daughter would want to bring friends camping, so we maybe trading the lj in on a new 4dr. I'm not all that fond of the 4dr. My life with jeeps has been small and nimble, so I may hate driving the 4 dr and be sol. I grew up in Mt and moved all over the world while in the Marines. Seen mt Fuji to Australia, the whole Med and a bit of Africa. So I kinda have the wandering bug. The wife is from PA and we recently moved to Ut. Nice place to visit and wheel but we find we don't want to live here. SO we are looking to move to NC- ish next summer. I will be either making a trailer or buying an adventure trailer. I find comfort for the family makes them happier about going lol. THe mods to the LJ will be to make it able to handle 5-7 rated trails and keep it light weight. So far bdo alum sliders and a smitty built rear bumper with a hitch. 4" lift on 33" pro comp mt's( surprisingly quiet on road). Diff armor and some skid plate work. Will be adding a metal cloak alum front bumper and a tmax winch with synth line. The inside mods are coming as I find what I need. I am looking at the or fab rear tire carrier with the jerry cans. I will post some pics once I host them somewhere that works with this site, and if anyone is visiting St george let me know I can point you to great views and out of the way spots/waterfalls, with maps Thanks Tyler
  20. you may wish to check carefree of colorado. They make awings for rv's but some smaller ones also. the top end come with a fulling enclosed alum holder. Sure helps with the life span, kills the sun rot and they are made well. I spent a few years works for them , so I know what they use an it is top end materials.
