DIY DIY Quick Disconnect Pins This mod is not my idea. I'll gladly admit I ripped it off another post on the interwebs. But I figured I'd snap some process photos and post the results here. And thanks Kizer for keeping a lid on this until I finally got it installed.

These were made for a friend of mine who's just getting into offroading (and modifying his Jeep).

We all know how helpful a quick disconnect link can be for unhooking the front swaybar. And we all know all the good aftermarket discos available. But their prices are not cheap at $80-140. For someone just getting started or on a smaller lift it's possible to make a quick disconnect pin for a fraction of the cost and simply use the factory swaybar links.

xx Third starter dead in less than a month
March 26, 2014, 09:43:36 AM by Ray-El
My Jeep has had two new starters in less than a month and it looks like #3 is starting to have issues as well.

My mechanic said the first two were full of water... even though I haven't been wheeling in weeks. After the second one was put in, I didn't go wheeling at all between the time it was installed and the time the third one started making grinding sounds (which is what the first two did before they died). I did notice that we got really heavy rain days before the last two started acting up, but I was really careful to avoid splashing in any puddles just as a precaution. So I'm guessing the water must be coming from above...maybe through the hood vent. I don't know. I do know the cowl under my hood vent that catches water hasn't been attached in years, but I've never had a problem with water somehow getting into the starter.

Has anybody ever had an issue that was killing starters like this?

I was looking at upgrading it to a Mean Green, but nothi...

xx WTB 315 70R 17 for spare tire
March 16, 2014, 02:50:11 PM by Unlimited_Fun
I recently had the 33"ATs removed and put on some 315 DuraTracs.

Then it occurred to me that the spare is still a 285 and might cause damage to the transaxle on the way back from the boonies.

Anyhoo, I have a brand new tire on that wheel and looking to unmount and sell, put a 315 in it's place.

Anyone have a 315 they'll sell cheap for a spare? I'm not looking for brand new, just spare\cheap.

xx Wanted: stock Dana 35 axle for TJ
March 09, 2014, 10:05:08 PM by YellowJeep
I'm looking for a Dana 35 stock rear axle with 3.07 gears for my TJ. No ABS. I'm located in Northern CA but I'm willing to drive to get it. I bought another used axle about a year ago, and it turned out the limited slip is worn out. It sounds like two bears fighting every time I go around a corner. Or two bears getting it on. Either way, not good. Please let me know if you have an axle or any ideas where to get one. You can PM me or 510-470-1116. Thanks!

xx 05 grand cherokee HVAC
March 02, 2014, 03:40:17 PM by sqdman12
Top 10 reason not to own two is always broken! my 05 WK has a broken blender door on the HVAC. Means no Heat!! Dealer wants $1500 so they can suck my gonads. I checked the two motors on the drivers side. The top one (appears to me what selects you discharge) is working fine. The lower one (appears to be the blender door from what I can fine) also works fine.  I took the blender motor off and the stud is very hard to turn by hand and seems to make no difference in the temp when I change move it.   When i looked on the passenger side behind the glove box I found the a white peice that I can turn with a screw driver. If I turn this I get heat, but as soon as you shut down the truck or HVAC it slams shut and will not open unless I do it manually again.  Anyone had this problem?  Also does anyone know how to get the HVAC part out of there?
