Dealer only for the 99.
have this problem as well. when i bought my 99 xj last summer the previous owner mentioned that occasionally the keyless remote would work. well it never seemed to until recently and would only unlock if i was standing my the left rear door. seemed weird... i had tried replacing the battery a few times to see if that did anything but i never got anything. where are the wireelectronics on the jeep
remote receiver is in the front dome light.
On aftermarket systems you cycle the ignition 5 times and then leave in the on position. Hit the lock on each remote you want programed. Then turn off the ignition and it should work. I doubt this will work for you being its factory but its worth a try.
I Hope This Helps I Bought the tires figuring theyd fit but had to get the Lift kit for all of them. I believe that there is a big difference.. 1999 2dr with 2 and 31s (Black) 1993 4dr with 2 and 31s (White) 1998 2dr with 2 and 31s (Purple) (rolled and totaled) The 1998 before lift with stock 22575r15 tires After 2 Lift with 31x10.50r15LT The 1999 before lift with 23575r15 tires After 2 Lift with 31x10.50r15LT
the best part about those running boards is that the support square stock has rusted off completely the end caps are the only part that is attached i mean the fiberglass may flex to the ground. but my wife would like some type of step when it gets lifted. Im looking for something. rock guard with a step maybe.
Friday Night 1.5 ShackleSpacer Lift Installed on stock shocks I will post pics later but the rear was easier than the front. and the rear was not fun. couple quick tips stack shackles are small and look weak. I had so much corrosion built up inside the bushing that the bolt would not go through past the threads the easy fix was to cut the head off the bolt with a angle grinder and that sped every thing
section. included shocks coils and new leaf packs (shipping leaf packs is too expensive to make it worth while. 64 each side) went to take off the the stock leaf packs and realized how rusted the forward spring mount is. If I would have put more torque on the bolt my breaker bar(with super special 3 jack handle extension) or the rusted bolt head would have snapped like every other bolt under my jeep.
Time for Pics my wife and I with shacklespacer lift the trail the made me want new shocks and a larger lift and bent up my stock crossmember and punctured my rocker panel. Rustys 1 drop crossmember rear sway bar mounts turned into rear shock mounts. Muffler shop welding not great but cheap and quick rear spring pack with stock main leaf and OME CS035RB leaf pack. provided 3.5 lift with 1.5 shackle

Well your brakes can be working fine but the fact of the matter is that the stock brakes suck The discdrum combo may work for chugging around in the mud but on the street Ill agree completely with you that even an empty jeep has poor braking. If you have to hard stop from 85 mph down to 0 with a passenger and some luggage youll suddenly realize exactly what brake fade is during that last 10mph to 0
Im running Powerstop front rotors and love them. Those and some Wagner Thermo-quiet pads and they stop on a dime (well 10x better than stock anyway) with 0 fade.
Congrats on the jeep and welcome to the board 1. Mostly trim. The classics also come with different wheels I think. Similar 5 spoke design but alloy instead of steel Some might have 16 wheels as opposed to the stock 15x7s on the sport. Not 100% sure on this... 2. Yes larger tires can affect fuel efficiency but usually its not tires alone that account for the difference. A lift (being higher up in the

I have a 1999 with a 4.5 RE lift and 33x12.5 bf mt and i think stock gearing. Bought jeep done and owner never said anything bout the gearing. But up here at 5800 ft i have no problem going on the highway at 70-75 and my mpg on my last take was 16. Not to bad i suposse for most of it being in town but I am easy on it.

I am hopping to get it I am a boy scout and I am working on my eagle scout project and when I finish it my dad is going to buy me a car and I am almost done my project so. Would a 2 lift kit be a good start for that jeep and could I still keep the stock tires and rimes on it
Looks like a pretty good deal to me as long as everything is mechanically correct on it. The 2 lift is where most of us started and the stock wheels and tires will be fine with that.
does anyone have a pic of a jeep with stock tires and rims with a 2 lift on it
I second the 2357515s. I run BFG ATs in this size on a stock 1999 and they fit perfectly.
Not sure if this is your issue or not but if you have a bone stock 99 A.C. system you have a suspect low pressure switch . There is a technical service bulletin from jeep on this. TSB 24-13-99 This TSB does cover your 99. In summary the evaporator freezes up and wont work again until it thaws out. Replacing the low pressure cycling switch with a REDESIGNED one from a jeep dealer is the fix. I had to
Just stick with the stock wheels or something with the same backspacing (5.25) or they will probably rub the fenders at flex.
I have 30x9.50 Wrangler GSAs on my stock 01 XJ. Im running 15x8 Ravine wheels off a 2004 Wrangler. No issues with rubbing but the most flexing I do is climbing curbs to park at work. I say go for it if you dont plan on wheeling it (at least with stock suspension).
yeah and for all you guys out there maybe thinking about doing something with the doorpads they dont come apart haha. You have to tape it all off its all like melted plastic together it was pretty infuriating. Thanks stevieboy and mn4wheeler Im going to repaint the black part black so it looks even better and do the drivers side which is still stock haha
Entry 4 Darrin T. My Boys and along with our Church Youth Group have been working on a 1992 cherokee turning it into a Off RoadDune Buggy. This is a fun low budget project for all of us to work on and It has been a success so far. We started with a 1992 jeep cherokee Limited 4.0 HO LeatherLoaded and a little beat up but that didnt matter. 151K miles. Here is what we invested so far 100.00 Purchase

Common Design All XJs were built as a Unibody design with the body and frame rails tied together as one piece as opposed to a body on frame design. All XJs have solid axles front and rear. The suspension is coilsleaf springs. All XJs came with discdrums brakes. Dimensions (small differences may occur depending on optional equipment or trim level) wheelbase 101.4 overall length 165.3 - 168.8 overall width 67.9 - 70.5 track 58 height 64 height with roof rack 66.8 ground clearance (from differentials) 7.3 - 8.3 approach angle 37.6 - 38 departure angle 31 - 32.1 breakover angle 21 - 21.9 curb weight 2wd 2891 lbs - 2993 lbs curb weight 4wd 3057 lbs - 3386 lbs cargo capacity 71.0 cu ft. Body The body comes in both 2-door and 4-door styles with a rear hatch (liftgate). In 94 side-impact beams were added in the doors and roof was strengthened. The 3rd brakelight was added to the top of the liftgate. In 96 the body structure was strengthened some although it was not noticeable in appearance. In 97 the body (and interior) was redesigned to freshen it up a bit. Most noticeably it gave the body smoother lines by changing the bumpers flares and moldings. The front fender was trimmed just below the headlights and replaced with plastic bumper endcaps that wrap around to the wheel well. The liftgate was also changed from fiberglass to sheet metal in this year. The windshield washer bottle was also moved to the inside of the drivers side front fender.

On 84-95 models the yoke slides in and out of the transfer case and is lubricated by the ATF fluid internally. On 96-01 due to a design change the slip yoke is external (does not slide in and out of the transfer case). This slip yoke is covered with a rubber boot.
