    Fab Fours ViCowl Light Bar Inserts

    I'm interested in buying a Fab Fours ViCowl Light Bar, the one that looks like a sun shade and completely surrounds the windshield. It makes the Jeep look like an armored car. I have a 1997 TJ but I can't seem to find one for my year. Does anyone have one on a TJ from a close year? Or does...

    Debris coming through cowl vent

    I picked up a 1997 last year and I’m slowly making it better and better. One thing that drives me nuts is how much debris flys out of the vents into my face. Now if I had a slightly newer jeep, there are plenty of vent covers that I could install. Because it’s a 1997, it has the three sets of...

    Canadian wiring harness??

    Ok guys, I’ve got one for you. I’ve had my 97 TJ for a couple of years now. Recently the MIL came on and showed a P0138 and a P0141 for downstream o2 sensor heater circuit. I said ok, I bought an o2 sensor online (not Bosch) and installed it. Code went away for about a day and then came back...
