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.
Top 10 reason not to own two jeeps.....one 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?
I recently noticed that my passenger rear shock was hanging loose. Upon closer look I noticed that the rear upper shock mount had failed. I have tried putting just a nut and bolt in it, but it just keeps falling out. Anyone ever dealt with this problem?
Well, after nearly a decade of Jeep'n (has it really been that long?) I recently had my second day-ending breakdown: A broken axle U-Joint
It's hard to see in the picture, but the U-joint cross is fully intact and I only lost the cap (which took out the stub shaft). Anyway, it was the original factory U-Joint (20 years old) so I'm guessing that probably had more to do with the breakage than my tire size.
I hate "repairing" the Jeep, so rather than just replace the U-joint and stub shaft, I decided to Upgrade to a set of TJ shafts. This would give me larger U-Joints, and eliminate the passenger side axle disconnect (which has started acting up on me lately). The fact that I had a friend with a spare set of TJ shafts didn't hurt either.
Of course my first thought was: well, if I have to take the cover off, I may as w...
Has any one here lived with a Detroit locker in a DD TJ? Are the handling issues really that bad? Time to rebuild my rear D44 and can't decide on a true track, arb or a detroit. I would like to keep the handling so anyone could run to the store in the TJ and not wreck it.
i have a log splitter by bush hog. it is the type that attaches to the tri mount on the back of a tractor. the hydraulic lines plug into the rear remote area of the tractor and you're busting wood! i no longer have a tractor and this is now a toe stubber instead of a log splitter. it longs to be mated with a tractor again... $450.00
if you want any of this goodness, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (or text me) if you have my number, i know a bunch of you do...
I'm thinking I'd like to install some rock lights on my TJ. Don't know why I didn't do it a long time ago...but with the LED's available nowadays at little cost, I'm thinking it shouldn't be too bad to install. I'm thinking a set toward the front axle, another set toward the rear axle enough to illuminate the undercarriage.
I bought the wife a 2014 Trailhawk two weeks ago. The ride and drive is great. Have not taken it offroad yet. It really does park itself. The adaptive cruise control is surreal. The wife mostly drives in the city. Gas Mileage isn't great, about 16mpg. She also has a lead foot.
Image below is a press picture. Hers is the exact same color. It's called Anvil. Supposed to be gray. Can be blue or green depending on the light.
Aaron finally decided to sell his Jeep, so I brought it home to sell it for him. He's had this one for 9 1/2 years after buying it new and I really hated to see him sell it. After driving it home, I decided to buy it.
Only 45,000 miles...just couldn't see letting someone else have it. I guess I'm a sucker for these things.
It does need some work, so it will be my next Cheap Jeep.
Saturday morning my family and I were sitting around trying to figure out what to do and decided on a road trip to grab a geocache at a lookout tower. So we grabbed our gear downloaded the coordinates and piled in the jeep for an adventure. The local Pilot station for gas and Subway was our first stop. Then down hwy 207 towards Heppner, Or. The jeep was exciting to drive in the 30-40 mph winds that were blowing across our area. Finally we reached our turn off the pavement onto Sunflower Rd. Just south of the metropolis of Hard man, Or. Our tires were greeted with the muddy wet county Rd that quickly coated the jeep and especially the windows in ooze. After a few miles we were at our fork in the road and greeted with a road closed sign and a locked gate. So no Madison butte lookout for us, but I had a backup plan. We would get back on the hwy after cleaning the windows with some water from a large puddle along the road. Plan B was to go to porcupine ridge lookout geocache...
