Re: I want to cheat on.... (pics included)

Cheat, I did that to mine already. Bought a 06 Ram 1500 in April. Need it to tow the 4 wheelers which are too much for the Baja now. My dad is now driving my Baja, I hardly ever get to drive it unless I take it to work to change the oil on it. Still drives great at 145,000 miles, and still looks gre...

Re: Should I replace Battery pre-emptively?

Just a quick note, my 03 Baja is still on the original battery, at 140,000 miles. I test it at work several times a year and every time I test it i passes just fine. It even survived below 0 temps this winter again. So I expect it will crap out at any time, being 7 years old now.

My sentiments exactly. I will drive this Baja of mine until I no longer can. It will prolly rot out being her in Cheeseland before it wears out.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Baja. Hope you enjoy the critter like the rest of us do.
As far as a cold air intake, I have one. Don't know if it has any performance advantage, but it sure sounds neat when you floor the gas pedal!!

Disconnect the trailer harness. I had this happen to my old Cherokee years ago. I had dropped my mother off to do some shopping and was sitting in the Cherokee. It was not runnin, but I had my foot on the brake pedal. In the chrome bumper of the car ahead of me I could see the parking lites were on....

I never had. Since I work on cars all day, I get lazy with mine and just replace bulbs as they burn out. Easier to do then do any hard work or rewiring.

What are you trying to do, just add some 134, or check the system out? You need gauges to check system pressures, and both high side and low side gauges are recommended for that. As far as adding up some juice, not that hard. But I also work on this stuff all the time so it is no big deal to me. Mike

The lock latch plate is the only way to hold the cover down so it doesn't come off when driving. I suppose you could engineer something else if you wanted to. It doesn't bother me either that its on the tailgate, I just remember not to sit on it.

Could be. We try to do them at work at about 30,000 miles, by then they are usually crudded up. On a Dodge, it depends on how much PCV vapors get sucked into it just behind the throttle plate. That usually makes it pretty dirty at 30K.

Dave, I know that on a Dodge, a bulb problem is only covered for 12/12,000 miles, after that, it is considered a wear item, like belts, brakes, etc., so I don't know if Suby would cover it. Prolly not, but doesn't hurt to ask them. I have replaced all the bulbs on my Baja, but right now I can't reme...
