Yesterday it was so nice I took my 97 TJ for a leisurely drive. The parks around the lake are getting crowded since its the crappie spawn.

While I was putting through the boat ramp area, some nice lady says, "wow, nice Jeep!" She was already in her car and moving before i could commend her for her fine taste in vehicles... :) :-/

My 1st major mod was a complete cylinder head valve job at 151k. 2nd major mod was this auto tranny cooler i installed a couple months ago. Works great so far :)

I will order the gauge and sensor next week and will install the gauge on the console and the sensor in the pan.

Stone white 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 hood vents. Big :) !
They should be a perfect match for.my stone white tj, and once i get them installed they will be fully.functional !

@Chris neither did I until I ran across a thread with info about hood louvres. Seems only the 98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 came with hood louvres.
Apparently only 1 year, hence the exhorbitant price, ugh :)
But I think they look cool plus they are functional.
Even my beast of a 2.5L needs all the heat relief I can give it down here in this Texas heat.... :)

Yeah, I Googled it just now and you're right.

And now I remember how ugly those early Grand Cherokees were (and still are)!
