    Nice. That thing looks luxury compared to the XJ, too bad it is still a unifloppy


    Make sure those tow hooks are on there solid...if they are just through the "frame" rail, then you will need to fix that before they kill somebody.

    You may not actually have a bad coolant sensor. I have two 5.9L ZJ's that have had all the coolant sensors changed and the computer still says that. It makes no difference for power or mileage. It may also say your tail lights don't work when you turn on your head lights, but they do. And finally if you have heated mirrors the drivers side one may have an orange tinge to it like it was somehow overheated or something. These are all subtle traits of a Limited Grand. I've also had this conversation with two other niner owners and the story is the same.
    Nice lookin rig though. I especially like the rear tow hooks.

    first off let me say this is a little rant ..i know when you buy a vehicle as is you get what you pay for ..that being said today i took the ZJ back to the shop that did the alignment and asked them a few questions about the job they had done and was i surprised in the answers i got ..i look at it this way if you do a job do it right the first time ..the issue with the track bar not having been installed with the right spacers i my view should have never left the shop till it was right ..basically it is my problem not theirs ...that find with me cause it will be fixed...end of rant
