I was just saying to have some fun in the mud, not anything extreme . I know a guy who has a 4.0L Cherokee I think even the same year as yours, he takes it to the mud every once in a while and it does fine, like I said nothing extreme but its fun.

i also want to know if theres any way to fix the sunroof and the rear wiper , i would like to do that tomorrow and hopefully this wont require any money but thats just wishful thinking
The engine's ECU is behind the coolant overflow bottle.

There's one fuse box under the hood - For the fuel pump, wipers, engine power, horn, ignition, most essential vehicle things, and the other is inside the passenger side kickpanel.

The inside fuse box is opened by just pulling on the little cover with the thumb hole slot. It has what each of the fuses are for listed in tiny print on the backside of the little cover.

Just take a look near where a passenger's feet would go and you'll see it.

It looks like the sunroof and wipers use a common circuit breaker instead of a fuse, and the rear wiper uses a 20 amp yellow fuse, located in cavity 8 on the inside fuse panel. This is on page 203 in your owners manual.

Hope I helped.

Actually... The 4.0 is the PERFECT offroad engine. Plenty of torque and it's not a big chunky V8.

Here are some pics of my 98' Wrangler Sport. Nothing better than this thing for some offroading if ya ask me. I think the gears in it are 4.41 or something like that. She barely does 65 on the interstate (and that's at about 3k RPM in 5th).











Now I just need a big truck and a BMW to complete my fleet. I've got the muscle car, the offroader, shoulda bought that 3 series after the lease was up...

Ever since I got the stang I never drive them .

Also have a few clunkers that used to be old racecars. 78 Lola 492, 73 Alfa Romeo GT, and an older model BMW. None of those 3 currently run but the Lola is in the shop being repaired right now, soon to be back on the track hopefully, it's a numbers matching car with a fair amount of history.

I'll be back to her soon enough. Just a few things left to do to the stang, tweaking mostly, she has a nasty lean to the driver side and I can't get the panhard adjusted perfectly until I fix it.

Nope, it's been adjusted to the stock panhard length. Unless it were way off (it isn't) it can't mess with ride height. Not to mention the lean is present even when the panhard is removed.
