    Up here, there is a place that rebuilds alternators in a reputable way (instead of the presumably more common cheap way). I gave them the dead alt, and they put in quality parts and gave it a nice...

    I was disappointed with the same slop in my Fabtech spacer. Dunno if it's contributing to vibration since I know the tailshaft housing bushing is bad and I hadn't matched the alignment marks on the...

    When I've done the suction method using the fill tube in my 2000 MGM, I've gotten about a gallon with some left in the pan. You should be good with 5-6 quarts if everything is the same on your 08.

    Are you against putting a subwoofer in the cabin (which I'm guessing was the way the 8" worked in the Jeep)?

    I haven't hooked up my system in quite awhile, but I have two 8" sub tubes on the rear...

    I'm not OCD, but in a situation like this I would measure both sides just so I know. There might be no reason to believe it would be different etc, but I would be compelled to verify it anyway. Dunno...

    I read something about later CVPI PCMs (maybe 04+ ??) requiring some ground wire trick to get the starter to work, but 98-00 should be plug 'n play (edit: but keeping in mind possible differences in...

    Are you sure the ARA3 PCM is good? My understanding from what I've read is that CVPI PCMs do not have PATS functionality and so any key that fits could, in theory, be used. I have been using a 2000...

    The stuff I just looked at indicates bank 2 is indeed the driver's side.

    Could it be a sensor issue rather than the cat? Something that might be common on these cars is the flanges rotting after...

    From a mere age vs. miles perspective, you have to consider adverse effects from sitting without being driven. Deterioration of seals is a big issue that comes to mind. If the battery is original, I...

    The tailshaft on mine had lots of play, but that might be normal. When I looked into it, I saw something about the tailshaft being so long that it exaggerates the play in the internal bushing or...

    The 4.6 is reasonably straightforward. For me, it's always a matter of the engineers seeming to make things without much regard for repairs, and that's probably the biggest issue rather than any kind...

    The plastic was up to early 01, shortly after they changed over to PI motors. Not sure how far back they went, but certainly 1998. Ford did have their own replacement kits for NPI motors, but they...

    I don't think drilling and tapping that would be nearly as bad as dealing with a spark plug hole. With the coolant drained low enough, I would think you could use WD-40 as a cutting fluid (whether...
