Hello all, anyone here got experience of the weber carb conversion on the 4.2l engine?  basically my jeep starts idles and runs fine - until you try to open the second choke. it gasps and stutters then pulls through, but not very well and with not much power.
I'm guessing its a setup issue with not enough fuel coming through - does anyone know a decent set up for these carbs or anyone who might be able to help me tune it - carbs seem a bit of a dying art these days...
it also has the issue that on a steep gradient it stumbles and stalls. So I'm guessing float level isn't correct which also could be related to the flat spot issue  - but once again getting correct info on this seems difficult with many conflicting comments on the web...

They do sell the brace separately. Your thoughts on cutting and flipping is exactly what I was thinking but i wanted an another opinion, thanks for taking the time to have a look and reply

Looking at the pic of the brace in their death wobble fix kit I think it would just be a case of cutting of the half bracket from the bar and welding it on to the the opposite side so it could be flipped to fit a RHD model. The track bar in the kit would obviously not fit a RHD. Do they sell the brace separately? I didn't look beyond that kit on the website.

Does anyone know where I could purchase a steering box brace for my ZJ, new, second hand don't mind which or anyone able to make one for me or if it's worth the effort modifying a LHD one for me, the one that Kevins off-road sells looks quite basic and in my non engineering/fabricators mind looks as if it could be modified to fit

I had the same issue with the rear hatch. It turned out to be the key was faulty and kept putting out an open code. Took awhile but I found a mobile guy who came out and made me two new keys.

110k miles. Very tidy inside and out. Only fault I’ve found (and the reason it was chopped in for sale) is the lift glass switch is stuck and was randomly opening the hatch.
I’ve got one on order from a broker. Rest of it all seems to be tippy top.

Well done. :icon_super:  How many miles has she done ?

And we need pics.

I have just sold mine (06-180K) and I had JKU rims with Goodyear Wrangler P 245 / 75 R 17. 110T.  The fronts needed a 5mil spacer to clear the caliper.

The 75's fill the wheel well much better than the standard wheels.

......I'm now looking to buy another late WK as well with sub 80k miles ....but her indoors doesn't know that yet.......

New owner here of a WK GC here. Specced up Overlander, 3.0 merc motor, all the toys. Love it so far!
Needs a new set of boots on it. It’s running 245/60/r18’s I suspect I could get a better choice of AT on a 17” rim… but will they clear the brakes on the Overlander? It’s quadradrive 2 if that makes a different. Not really thinking about a lift at this point….

I have water leaking from under the dash area on the drivers side near the accelerator pedal soaking the carpet - its a rainwater leak not any water from the air con or coolant. It needs a few hours of medium to heavy rain before it starts to drip dowm mainly behind the inside corner trim - rain appears near the wiring plastic cover next to the sill. I do not have a sunroof - almost impossible to reproduce a leak  using a hose - it needs constatant rain. It leaks when standing overnight.

Its a slow drip of water that I can see runs down the wiring loom near the door wiring grommet area under the dash near the A pillar but really difficult to see where it comes from as its literally a few drips a minute.
The wiper cover panel is bone dry but  I've added sealant along the underside of the window - no difference.
I've party undone the O/S wheel arch liner - drains are clear of leaves etc.
I've cleaned the door seals & channels.
Added sealant to the rubber grommet where it enter the A pillar plus I've sealed around the door hinges.
Engine bulkhead area is bone dry.

Not sure what do do next - behind the wheel arch liners all is clean with no body rot.

OK so after getting a run around and not finding a UK ECU programmer that will take on my PCM I decided to buy the kit needed and register as a MOPAR Independent.

That means that I can now do SKIM deletes and VIN updates for most Jeeps up to 2018, now I'm not ready to do diagnostics yet but hope to have PCM flashing mastered in a few weeks.

Any one has any PCMs laying around that they want unlocking and willing to let me practice on them let me know  :greggmo:
