    Passenger locks work but not windows

    98 XJ 4.0 automatic 3.5' lift Yesterday mysteriously my passenger side windows stopped working. I do mean completely stopped working. I cant even operate them with the drivers door switches. I would normally assume it's the wiring and switches in the passenger front door but I'm not sure...

    98 XJ 204k 3.5' lift Those metal rain guards above the doors are very strong on my 99. But on my 98 I noticed a spot where I could almost pull it off of the truck. It's not rusty at all so it must be yet another downfall to Chrysler buying AMC... poor fit and finish. Anyone ever removed or...

    Sway bar/shackle lubrication

    1998 XJ 4wd automatic 3.5 lift So after my lift install I still notice that when it's more than just me in the truck it squeaks over bumps. I'm pretty sure it's the rear sway bar or shackles. The rest is new. I'm curious on what you all have done to lubricate these. I could just shoot some...
