  1. 4dr Mopar 2" lift springs on 2dr Sport? And what shocks?

    I have about 20k miles on this set up so far. No issues yet with driveshafts or other components. With all that being said, the dynatrac kit is a solid kit that will likely provide what you are looking for. I think it all comes down to up front cost and what your typical payload is like. I...
  2. 4dr Mopar 2" lift springs on 2dr Sport? And what shocks?

    I ended up with the mopar 2 inch lift for the 4dr JLU via a part number mixup by the vendor I used. I decided to run with it and it has worked out well. I usually have a fair amount of gear in the back so having a stiffer spring hasn't been bad. But as others mention, be prepared to...
  3. Protecting the paint with ceramic coating

    I've been using the Turtle Wax hybrid solutions ceramic and it has been awesome. I easily got 6-8 months of protection through this last western PA winter with a single application. If you take time to surface prep and properly decontaminate it will stick around a lot longer. I like it...
  4. 6-speed feels strange in third gear, would this be a bad throw out bearing?

    It's hard to rule out play in the drivetrain being the culprit here but I see this with my 6 speed every so often. I have no real data to back this but I've always attributed it to the electronic throttle control, or engine timing doing goofy stuff as engine load changes. For me, third is...
  5. JlUR Clutch Creaking

    Will do. It was removed and set back up during the center force install, but never messed with while trying to troubleshoot/fix the bad pedal feel last summer. Doesn't seem to correlate with the appearance/disappearance/appearance of the issue in my case.
  6. JlUR Clutch Creaking

    Yep unfortunately still does it with the centerforce. It may even be more pronounced with the centerforce because the pedal is a bit stiffer. The kit does provide a fresh TOB. I’ve been through about 4 master cylinders and 3 clutch release cylinders. Only thing that temporarily solved the...
  7. JlUR Clutch Creaking

    This is what I pulled from the system back in August only 4 weeks after I had the recall service done. I'm pretty sure the fluid goes in clear when it's new. I know I've generally pulled better looking DOT 3 from my '79 F150 which is kind of crazy. I haven't messed with anything after 4th/3rd...
  8. JlUR Clutch Creaking

    I went through the whole pedal replacement nightmare last summer. Seemed to fix the issue but sure enough, it’s back again. Looks like the only answer is to deal with it for now. Can’t be without the Jeep for a whole month again. I feel like it has to be a hydraulic issue. It’s strangely...
  9. 35's on 4.56 Gears

    manual or auto? Also do you plan to spend much time at higher elevation?
  10. 35's on 4.56 Gears

    I had my local 4 wheel parts do the work. It’s been holding up well 20k miles later. Break in was a bit harder than I’m used to seeing but otherwise it’s been fine.
  11. JL premium soft top loud rattle

    If your top is fully secured and all windows are on, try flipping the locking tabs in the back to the other position. Not sure if the position of these matters if the top is fully up and in place... But I find that these make a whole lot of noise depending on what position they are in. May...
  12. JL premium soft top loud rattle

    Does it seem like the noise is coming from directly overhead, or from the back of the jeep?
  13. 6 speed rattle/noise at 3k RPMs

    Hard to tell from just the video but it seems like it's something that's rattling from resonant vibrations instead of a bad bearing or unbalanced flywheel. Could totally be wrong though. Do your brake or clutch pedals seem to have excessive side to side play?
  14. !Warning! ReadB4 Buying CENTERFORCE Clutch

    That makes me think it’s gotta be a linkage thing then. Somehow hitting the gate on either side of first is clearing the bind?Unfortunately I don’t know enough about the mechanical layout in this particular trans to know if a synchro issue would cause behavior like this. I’d say get it to the...
  15. !Warning! ReadB4 Buying CENTERFORCE Clutch

    Yeah give it a shot and see. I'm really not a fan of these cable actuated shifters. Almost impossible to tell whether shifting resistance is coming from poorly adjusted cables, unhappy synchros, a dragging clutch, or something else entirely. But if you pump the pedal and notice a difference...
  16. !Warning! ReadB4 Buying CENTERFORCE Clutch

    My first gear is definitely sticky when it’s cold. However, it always goes into gear without too much trouble. I just feel it a bit more than usual. It was like this with the stock clutch as well as the centerforce. Next time you have a cold start, pump the clutch about 50 times before you...
  17. Please help to identify what is leaking here

    I’d clean it up the best you can and see if it comes back. I had a leak very similar to this only after having the Jeep a few months. Never was enough to drip. Just made the underside of the bell housing wet. I thought it was a valve cover leak so I took it into the dealership. They...
  18. wheeling with a clutch

    The bottom of the bell housing is still open, even if the inspection plugs are in place. I think this is to let it quickly drain because the connection between the trans and the block usually isn't water tight. As other have said above, its best to stay away from the clutch in deep water...
  19. !Warning! ReadB4 Buying CENTERFORCE Clutch

    In my experience it’s a little firmer than stock but it’s still generally light compared to other vehicles I’ve felt. The centerforce seems to let me feel a lot more but still no fatigue if I’m driving all day. The stock set up was a little too light for me. Had no feedback when I had any type...
  20. Which engine for Colorado passes?

    I think the 2.0 would be a great choice if you plan on spending time at elevation. We spent a fair amount of pavement and trail time in CO last year with the 3.6. Definitely feel the loss of power when you are shifting gears yourself (6 spd manual). However, based on reports by others it...
