Some useful information i ran across while looking for ways to identify a 4.0L for DIYJ.

The casting number is cast into the head, and found on the drivers side.

The year ranges follow:

Year............Casting No
1987-90......53005535 (8933002665)     2686
1991-95......53008405                  7120
1996-98......53020569                  0630
1999-04......53010449                  0331

Old School...

So this past weekend at Rausch Creek, Scott and I had a conversation...

Scott and I both drive our Jeep's to the trail, wheel, and drive them home. Scott still drives his daily. I would if I didn't have this nice fuel efficient commuter car. We're sitting at camp, looking around the parking lot, and we see all these tube chassis, far from legal buggies and then our inspectable, streetable, YJ's. Scott's explanation, in his usual comical form, "We old school!".

Fixing my parking brake.

For the past 5 years or so, my parking brake has been dis-functional. Due to rear brake adjustment, and stretched cables.

When I did the SOA, i replaced all of the cables, well, all except the main cable running from the pedal to the T junction for the rear wheels. My rocker guard was in the way for that one, i'll re-visit that one later.

Welcome to the new!

Bear with me as I work out a less generic theme, otherwise, all of the old tech, trips, trails, and photo galleries should be available via the menu.
