  1. What's new in this club
  2. I think you can go with both, it's worth calling them and explain on what you need.
  3. Great efforts. If during your conversation, any FJ familiar garage noticed, pl share.
  4. I did some calls and I found two pretty decent shops for fabrication that said they could build what I had in mind: Icon auto Ironman 4wd offroad I think I will go with Icon as they seemed to be more familiarized with Jeeps, Ironman seems to be more for Pajeros and etc. Price wise they quoted around the same price. I asked several shops but none of them would know how to fabricate what I wanted.
  5. yes, email the guy...he will quote you the rate with international shipment till Dubai. He might ask the payment to his paypal account instead of the online portal. That's fine. Dont forget to buy the extension for the transfer case drop. It costs only USD 8 extra.
  6. hi srikumar does he ship to UAE as when I was proceeding it did say 46 $ for shipment to uae but on the last page just where you enter the billing address and credit card details it says ships to only US only ??I have send them a mail to verify
  7. And regarding the electrical thing you could have taken the power from the source...taking positive from the fuse box is a bad idea...
  8. Don't go along with that plastic gourmet it's interchangeable you have to study the plate on the transfer case itself to be 100 % sure just where the rear shaft extends there is a round plate rebit to the case take note from there
  9. Then you have a NP231. You can select from the website. Since you are driving an automatic you have to select automatic transmission along with transfer case drop. http://www.boostwerksengineering.com/231-HD-Shift-Linkage-Auto-Trans-V20_p_25.html you can take this linkage to Saleem. He installed mine and is aware how it's to be done.
  10. Can you send me the picture of the transfer case linkage taken from inside your car cabin clearly showing the description. I have attached one picture from the internet. The one on the left is NP231 and one on the right is NP242. I changed these parts by studying various forums. Not sure which workshop guy would have the right knowledge. They can help you fix the linkage once you buy it, but till that point you have to do it yourself. Regarding the radiator fans I got them done in Ajman. The guys name is Saleem 055-7979626
  11. i only have a part time so should be the NP241.the transfer linkage says 2H 4H N and 4L it doesnt have have a full time as far as i know .it had a light in the dash that used to come on sometimes called part time when the lever was engaged. How do check what type of transfer case it has.this is a jeep cherokee 2001 yr.Could you suggest a workshop that could take a look and help order the right part.i am quite illiterate when it comes to these matters. i dont mind the distance just want a trust worthy shop.also need to sort out the extra radiator fans.
  12. When you are on the Boostwerks site, it gives you two options, one with lift and one without. The difference between the two is that there is an extension linkage for the lifted vehicles. So better to buy that one. That guy does international shipment if you send him an email. Would cost you approx USD 100 landed, but it's definitely worth it.
  13. thanks sreekumar will look in this.looks like a better option to get the linkage.If i order this will it fit stock or it need some adjustments due to the lift.
  14. actually when i got the jeep it the led was wired directly.The switches to them could be turned on accidentally leaving them to drain the battery.It probably happened once i guess i was more paranoid about it after that.so i just got it attached on to a relay (so the power would cut off once the key is turned off) which happened to be the cooling fan one.not a good idea i think.i will try to wire it through its own relay.
  15. I only changed the engine and gear mounts to the OEM. Have not changed any of the bushes and I do have a slight leak as well. My driver side window ocassionally works. Never had central lock. Doors don't close on the first attempt. Need to bang it a bit. But I have come to accept the car for what it can do and have started to ignore the other smaller bits which don't affect it's performance.
  16. Ac was one of the thing. When i sold the car it was needing new engine mounts, new fuel rails, new suspension, New AC duct box, some bushes under the car, roof paint was bubbling, when it rains water was leaking inside. I knew that even if i fix it all soon some other thing will come up.
  17. Any accessory such as light bars should be connected through its own relay, dedicated power supply cable and own fuse to avoid such occurrences. Not sure who connected yours but it’s really a bad idea to hook that up to essential components.
  18. One more point. The best thing about the XJ is that you can crawl below it and manually shift the vehicle from 2H to 4H and to 4L. So incase if your linkage has failed in the desert, do that. Agree. Getting a clean one is most importand and it's a big challenge. But the issues that the OP has raised are minor ones and can easily get fixed. In your case, you spent more money fixing the AC than the value of the car.
  19. What i learn from my experience. If a Jeep already dead you cant fix it easily. You need to make full restoration which will be expensive and it is just not worth it. So better to buy a nice Jeep and keep it nice and good condition.
  20. I faced the same issue with my Cherokee XJ after the 3" lift. It never went into 4H or 4L smoothly. This is because of the change in angle after the lift which would wear out the rubber bushings. I finally installed the Boostwerks linkage and I am currently having smooth and firm linkage. The only issue s that on some really bumpy terrains the transfer linkage very occasionally shifts from 4H to 2H. But this issue would be less if you have the NP242 transfer case as you have a part time and full time 4H. My feedback is mentioned in the below post. Just be sure to buy the right linkage for your transfer case. Do you have the NP231 or NP242 transfer case? Also it would be better to buy the linkage for the transfer case drop. Regarding your radiator fan not working, did you check the wiring of the LED Light bar and whether the wires are touching each other. I have very limited knowledge on electrical work, but it seems you have a short circuit somewhere causing the fuses to blow up. Put a rated wire with a proper fuse. Also it would be good to have two additional aux fans infront of your radiator, to provide additional cooling while driving in the desert. And go for JGC 😉. You can take the man out of the Jeep , but you can't take the Jeep out of the man.
  21. Just sell it. Believe me best solution.
  22. I THINK 2.5 INCH LIFT OR MORE I AM NOT SURE TRANFER CASE WAS NOT DROPPED FROM WHAT I KNOW.
  23. Can you share some more details: 1. Amount of lift? 2. Transfer Case drop if any?
  24. HI SRIKUMAR, THE 4H FAILS TO ENGAGE AT TIMES I BELIEVE THAT LIFT CAUSE THE DRIVETRAIN TO BE AT AN ANGLE.THE SHIFT LEVER FOR THE 4X4 ALSO DIFFICULT TO ENGAGE AT TIMES.THE DAY OF THE IFTAR BOWL ON THE WAY BACK IF FELT AS IF THE REAR WHEEL WAS ONLY SPINING OR DECREASE IN POWER ?? ,HAD DIFFICULTY GETTING ACROSS THE DESERT.ON THE WAY TO THE BOWL IT FELT NORMAL. THE FUSE FOR THE RADIATOR FAN BLEW AND AC DID NOT WORK (AS THE LED BAR LIGHT WAS CONNECTED TO THE COOLING FAN RELAY ,AN OVERLOAD PROBABLY CAUSED THE FUSE TO BLOW) SO THE COOLING FAN DIDNT WORK ON THE WAY BACK.LUCKILY ON THE HIGHWAY IT WAS NOT A PROBLEM.(THIS IS THE FAN THAT WORK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE AC OR THE ENGINE TEMP CLIMBS ABOVE 215)
