    Blower motor speeds quit working, ended up being part of the mode control switch. Doesn't appear to be available except as used so I bypassed it and used a switch and relay to send power to the speed switch and blower motor resistor.
    Also found out I had some water intermix in the front differential due to a gash in the vent hose so ran new vent hoses for the front axle and tcase, cleaned the diff, and filled her back up.

    Think it would help to use some 1/2" wire protective wire wrap on those hoses to prevent scrapes?

    No, with the extra suspension travel I have now the front pinion (driveshaft not currently installed) grabbed the breather hose and pulled it down and proceeded to chew on it. I saw it hanging (a while back) and secured it back up but apparently I didn't see where the pinion had chewed on it.
    Using "reinforced" fuel line now.. but I have it zip tied up and over to the control arm and then up the firewall.

    Installed an extended idle on the silver 2000 XJ. This is similar to the extended idle found on XJ's with the police package. All you have to do is pry off #1 plastic cover on the ECM(driver side near air cleaner box) there are 3 plastic covers. The one closest to the headlight is the correct one. Towards the front of the vehicle, the first wire in row #2(solid gray wire) is the wire you want to splice into. Run a wire from it through the firewall and I mounted a toggle switch on the plastic housing that is about a foot from the gas pedal. On the other side of the toggle switch, run a wire to a good ground. You now have an extended idle if you need it. It will take the idle to about 100RPM should the need arise. Here's a pic of my jeeps.

    Replaced the rear upper control arm in the wifes liberty yesterday. Then the rf cv shaft,axle seal and bushing, rf hub bearing, front calipers, rotors and pads. Ugh.. not pleased on how much work is involved just to replace the cv shaft
