Can you use the techconnec thingy to find out whether that computer flash can be done on any OBDII 4.0l XJ here.
I mentioned it as only being suitable for the 2000/2001 in the other, general cooling thread last year, coz my local dealer reckoned it was year model specific .... but the dealers say a lot of things ....

Best you check for belly dancers & camels under the backseat jj
- as that was the stock radiator for the hot climate, saudi/middle east market ... was also available as a heavyduty cooling option elsewhere .... If the dealer knew about it
Should be in your parts book too.
