    A/C Shoots Out Material

    It’s there to allow condensation to build up on it and drip down, to then flow out the drain. Unfortunately after many years it degrades, as you’ve recently found out…

    HVAC troubleshoot 1998

    If you’re referencing that, it’s the drain. It just drips down onto the ground…

    GMRS Radio

    It should be any day now. It’s been pushed back a couple times, but I heard sometime in July 2021…

    Piecing together a 4 inch lift - Right Hand Drive TJ

    You probably don’t need rear anti-sway bar disconnects. The stock bar flexes plenty for most TJs while still being connected. Regular extended end links will work perfectly fine for the back, and save you some money for other parts… The 4 1/2” coil springs matching close enough for the 4” lift...

    Rhinolining (and the like)

    The Raptor Liner is what I would describe as textured, obviously. How much or little depends on air pressure, if using a schutz gun. I spray mine right at 60 psi, as measured when the trigger is pulled… Raptor Liner is polyurethane. When the substrate surface is prepped properly. The guidelines...

    Rhinolining (and the like)

    I have the most experience with Raptor because it is so very user friendly. It goes on well. It wears extremely well. The key to ANY top coat though is prep prep prep. That cannot be stressed enough…

    Should I buy a 1998 4 cylinder automatic?

    Good looking TJ other than all the tubes added to it. Sounds perfect for a teenager. Especially the minimal highway driving part. A 4-cylinder automatic will be fine for the use you mention…

    Transmission cooling line

    I believe the radiator and transmission fluid lines are the exact same between ’97 and ‘98 automatic TJs…

    Rhinolining (and the like)

    I have my tub Raptor Lined 100% underneath, and 100% inside. I can’t think of any reason not to. I do run carpet and Weathertech floor liners as well so mine is kind of out of sight. I’d imagine no carpet, but still using floor liners, would work out ok. Just need a nice rubberized floor liner...

    Fixing dented gas tank

    I wish you were closer. I have a brand new Mopar later model TJ gas tank skid plate w/straps that has been raised/welded 1” higher for more clearance. It needs a new home…

    Cost to remove a lift kit?

    The Jeep can sit on all 4 tires as you do this. Just make sure the parking brake is applied, or chock the tires… A jack is only needed to slightly drop the skid plate…

    Cost to remove a lift kit?

    Absolutely. A couple precautions. It’s a good idea to put a secondary stop in place, under the transmission, just in case you accidentally let the jack down too quickly. Also, I never remove all the transfer case skid plate bolts at once so that should never be a concern… Support the transfer...

    Cost to remove a lift kit?

    Cheapest and quickest route would be adding washers between the frame and transfer case skid until the vibes go away, or are at least greatly reduced. Making simple spacers is easy enough as well. Shouldn’t take a whole lot to get it livable with your 2.5” lift….

    Should I buy this Jeep?

    If the frame is decent it’s worth $3,500 all day long…
