Thanks! Weather pacs are awesome. Exactly what I'm looking for. Do I really need to buy the tool to just do a couple of wires?

It is around 14 gauge wire, I haven't measured it.

Amphenol makes the junction boxes for the solar panels I make for work. Searching ebay for them just turns up a bunch of milspec connectors. Mouser has some for 7+ dollars each. I don't need that level of quality.

These are some cheap weatherpac style ones. (Pack of 10 for 6 bucks!). Are they still good? http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-Kits-2-Pi...8ecab3&vxp=mtr

yea those are some cheap ebay copy's. no idea how good they are. a good crimper will work, or you can solder them. how many do you need? i can sell you some actual weather pac ones for a cheap price. just depends on how many you need

Another trip to MOAB done.

Now I just have to figure out the two vibrations I have and figure out what I'm going to do about my diff cover rubbing. One vibration I think is a tire balance issue, the other feels like what driveshaft used to feel like before I replaced it, a binding of sorts at 67mph.

Two.

I need two-wire connectors, and I need two of them total for a total of four wires being hooked up. I measured a little and I think its 16 gauge.

I would prefer to solder them. I just didn't know if they required a special crimp to fit correctly.

Learn me about mid to early 2000's Cherokees. I'm looking at picking one up for less then $7000 as I'm kinda wanting something more capable then my outback.

What are some things I should look for?

I was looking at these three
http://bend.craigslist.org/cto/4507017846.html
http://bend.craigslist.org/cto/4514116620.html
http://bend.craigslist.org/cto/4516387702.html

The one for $7500 is nice looking but seems pricey. But then again I don't know what acceptable values are for these.

I was thinking about getting a Toyota pick up for hauling use etc.....


Cheapest I could find was $6,000

Nope, I paid $1,000 for a nicer one with lower miles back in MI.

Guess I'll be getting a Comanche

I honestly would pay 5000 or less for any Cherokee nowadays but the main things you want are going to be 4.0l straight six, Chrysler 8.25 or Dana 44 rear axle, and 4wd of course. If you are going to be modifying avoid the Dana 35 rear axle at all costs.

Buying a modified one can be a great deal if you can ensure quality of parts and installation, so make sure to do a **** ton of research if you're going that route

You need to be aware of the 0331 cylinder head issue, this thread covers it well:

http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1076299

Aside from that, I would look to find one with either the Chrysler 8.25 or D44 rear end. As for transmissions I'd look for an automatic as the AW4 is pretty much regarded as bulletproof.

Time to wear out the tires, then mild lift plus 33's should do the trick!

I can't wait to finally make it to Moab. Planning on spending few weeks in Utah and Colorado sometime in the next year.

No XJ is worth more than $4-5K, modified or not. I sold my last one for $2500 and it was very nice with just about everything having been replaced on it.

Thanks for the pointers! I agree that over $5k is pricey for an xj. It seems to be a local phenomenon. I can find them all day long in Portland for what they are actually worth. I told the guy with the one for $7500 that the best I could do is $5500. No reply

Good call. This things actually seem to be rising in value, that's true. But $7500 for a brokedick unibody XJ is just insane.

Especially when they were maybe $19k brand new back 15 years ago.

In. The hard part with MOAB is that it's so close to Ouray that if you're long hauling it out here, it's almost worth it to hit both.

saw one of those new jeep renegade sport-ute thingers in town today. Still had the velcro patches on it. Wasn't stunning. A little bit different looking but nothing like "omg, that's awesome". It's cute though. Women who want "something with awd/4wd" will probably love it.
