    This is on my driver side visor that I got out of an explorer. What exactly is it and does it do? I'm guessing there are batterieries in it? There were no extra wires coming out of the visor..

    Does anyone have any info or links about the econoline HVAC box that svt put in the ranger lightning bolt or someone doing something similar? All I can find mentioned is that they installed a rear Box from an econoline in place of the ranger unit.

    Functions controlled by ecu?

    What functions does the ecu control other than the obvious engine sensors, gizmos, and gadgets on my 2007? I'm assuming ac, fuel pump, cruise control? Anything else? I'm planning on doing an engine swap using a stand-alone engine harness and wondering what functions I'm going to have to wire up...

    D44 TTB questions

    I vote for the TTB as well. I like being different. Not to mention, around here fullsize TTB rigs are easy to come by and cheap so spare parts aren't an issue. As far as steering goes, I plan on just further modifying my superrunner steering setup.

    K-Link...Heims or TREs?

    Hey guys I'm in need of some opinions and advice. I've tried searching but all i can find on the superrunner kit as far as mods go is droping the tie rods to accomodate for the amount of lift present which i am doing as well..

    stock components with D30 on 94 ranger

    XJ uses upper and lower control arms instead of radius arms. I won't swear to it but i believe a member on here found a way to utilize the cherokee control arms. Check out http://www.naxja.org For more info on the XJ D30s :icon_thumby:

    leaf spring d30 swap. which years

    Ditto on the XJs being coil sprung.. both of mine are and i know for a fact that 89and newer XJs are too. There is a kit however that some of the guys on the jeep forums use to convert over to a leaf sprung setup. If your biggest reason for wanting leaves vs. coils is stiffness....use ranger or...
