So, apparently some re-design in 2005 at Jeep caused this issue. When you fill your TJ's gas tank all the way up to full, it spits about half a cup of gas at you. Spilling down the side of your Jeep, hitting the fender flare, and maybe your shoes. This is annoying, messy, and over time, costs money!
It's been a little while since I've posted, and something grave has happened. I've sold my 2013 JK. It's ok though, it's made way for a new project. My new DD and weekend wheeler is a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited, or LJ as theyre known in the community. There's a long story here, but I'll just say that the 2013 was a very nice vehicle, and I'm sad to see it go, but the burden of the LJ is much lighter, and with some recent family changes, it just makes more sense. On the bright side, it should make for a more interesting project, as I may actually have some money to spend on upgrades!
Never underestimate the value of good rocker protection! At the end of August (less than 2 weeks from now) we're taking the JK up to the NCAOAAA off-road park in Northumberland County. DIYJ is nowhere near ready, it'd be impossible to get it ready for the trip, maybe with unlimited funds..
So, in case you're not aware, I'm active on a couple of social networks. Twitter, as @SWBCrawler, and Facebook at SWBCrawler. I've been around a while, an eternity as online communication goes. I've also been interested in IT and Computers for most of my life. I was playing games on my dad's TI before I could read. I work in IT, as a System Administrator. Thats how I'm able to run this very web site without spammers and asshat's overrunning it. The point is, I witnessed the infancy of onl
Today, I got the rest of the 2.5L Wiring harness out of DIYJ. I had a little help.
Since I removed the dash plate last time around, I figured today that I'd clean it up, and paint it, so it doesnt rust up again. I took a wire wheel to the entire surface of the plate, and then wiped it all down with paint thinner.
So I took some time to start tearing out what's left of the remnants of the 2.5L from DIYJ. This meant the computer, and the wiring harness.
On the 1990 YJ, with the 2.5L TBI, the computer is located inside the cab, behind the glove box. I had already removed the dash panels, so I could see the computer, but getting it out was a bit of a job.
I have something of an affinity toward unique Jeeps. My first YJ was a 1990, plain old white. I fixed that up by adding some simple store bought decals, botl-on widgets, and through the application of black paint here and there. It made it mine, and helped it stand out from the sea of other white YJ's on the road.
So, I've driven Jeeps for a long time. When i bought my JK, i was coming from an XJ daily driver, and a YJ crawler. Sold the YJ, and traded in the XJ on my shiney new JK Sport. I have a lot of faith in the Wrangler brand, but the things so comphy and whatnot that I have to admit that I had my doubts. I know its a sound base, but jumping 21 years from my 1992 wrangler to a 2013, i had my misgivings.
