    Lower radiator hose replaced. I made sure to remove the sping inside of the old one. This took some effort but will worth it. It makes sure the hose does not collapes under accelaration. So far it has not given me any trouble.

    At this time I have flushed the transmission fluid completely two time. At 140K miles, I installed a tranny cooler, at the time I changed the tranny filter and flushed out all of the old fluid. This has made a big improvement in shifts.

    After searching the web I found several website with headlight wiring diy. Since the headlight on the XJ aren't so bright, I decided to upgrade the wiring harness. This was the best mod so far. Now with headlights are even brighter. You could by a harness that's just pnp, buy I wanted to use 10ga so that's what I did. The H4 plugs are ceramic and I found them on ebay. The ones sold at the auto parts store still have 16ga wire. Take your time, make sure you have all the connectors and relays. This will make your install faster.
