Re: Speedo correction

Thanks for the advice - my truck is a 2003 Grand Cherokee CRD. From what I understand I need to intercept the signal from the ABS sender. I'll search and see what can be found.

Re: Speedo correction

What Jeep is it? If it's a TJ, a simple gear picks up speed from transfer case. Grand Cherokees are different.

Superlift make a correction unit that I used in the past. Very easy and accurate.

If you get a nice clean TJ that's not been molested, you'll have a fair chunk of money leftover for mods you want to do. TJs are great with great aftermarket support.

Re: JK Rubicon journey

OK, thank you for that. Next question, are the front recovery points part of the ARB bumper? ARB told me that recovery points had to be fixed to the chassis due to the air bag "cans". My JK had no crush cans from the factory. Those hoops at the bottom of the front bar are part of the bar.

You would be wrong to assume that. There are model accessory and gearing options packages that are agreed by FCA for Australia and NZ markets. Build sheet states which market it was designed for from the factory.

Re: Rubicon vs Sport vs Overland

Final ratio would depend on transmission (auto and manual have different ratios), diffs (some non Aus/NZ designated Rubicons come with 3.73 ratios not 4.10), and transfer case (2.72 for sport and 4.10 for Rubicon). Test drive both variations and see what talks to you. As for Singapore new imports, I...

17 is the new 16, and 16 is the new 15. Mostly new 4x4s are moving towards 16/17 inch rims so that bigger brakes can be fitted with more powerful engines.

Re: what removes battery acid stains

Reddish orange marks are probably from the rust and corrosion of the metal battery tray. Battery acid by itself would not cause that. When the acid leaked, it took metal with it.

Can you not just park something on top of it on the day of inspection?
