I am chasing down some suspension issues. I want to have a realistic goal.
Should I expect that if my suspension is proper (including all things Draglink, control arms, etc.) that I should never have death wobble even without a stabilizer?
My daughter's 2020 JL is making a popping noise from the front. She is in Chicago, so I am not able to personally see it and diagnose. She took it to a shop that spent about 30 minutes looking at it on a lift, and determined that it is missing shims.
I am assuming this is a clip around the...
My daughter lives in Willowbrook. Her 2020 JLUS is developing "front end noises".
Being as this could be anything from loose bolts to more, I want a reputable shop to send her to. Too many places will use this as opportunity to meet a quota.
Can anyone provide first hand experience with a...
When driving in 4wd, I hear a vibration when letting off throttle and coasting.
nothing is felt, but rather heard. I originally was thinking it had something to do with skid plates, but the more i have thought, it doesnt make sense that its only heard when in 4wd. Its evident in hi or lo...
I am going to be trailering my jeep, and I am trying to find the best strap locations.
I am using 2inch wide straps that can go thru the wheel, around the axles or other locations. Long term, I will have macs custom weld hooks installed on the axle tube, buy they won't be here in time for this...
My daughter came home for Thanksgiving. She lives in Chicago land. Today I noticed that her inner fender liner had been poorly cut exposing the catalytic converter.
Obviously someone was interrupted during their attempt, but with it exposed it's a calling sign now.
What is the best way to...
I have the slip stream on my JLU. Due to the way the soft top folds back, it does not allow the soft top to rest as low as factory designed.
This causes the following problems.
1. Will not lock in the open position. This is not a real issue for every day use, as the cover for the soft top...
I am putting the soft top on for the season. Got everything in place and now the soft top wont lock on the drivers side. This is when trying to put it in the sunrider or fully closed position.
Is there a way to adjust the tension to get it to lock?
I am installing new drive shafts and yokes. The rear and transfer case are simple to torque using the transfer case in 4l and ebrake engaged.
The front is not so easy due to the FAD.
My choices are:
1) pry bar in the yoke
2) torque extensions on my impact wrench
3) something I haven't thought...
The drive shafts are in good condition, no vibrations. The front has scuffs from contact with my skid plate.
Both have a misshapen flange from extreme angles of my 3in lift.
Replaced these with shafts more suited for a lift. Asking $350 for the set. Pickup preferred, but will ship at buyers...
I have a used skid plate system that I am selling. Selling for $200.00.
All hardware included. This is very heavy, so pricing is for local pickup. If you want to pay for shipping, let me know.
Pictures show condition. Minor scratching from use. Nothing structural or damaged.
I am looking at replacing my driveshafts. I have falcon sp2 3
3 shocks and 4.5in springs.
Adam's wants a measurement if my drive shaft to place the order.
Do I take.the measurement on level ground, or fully flexed?
I have installed an auxiliary fuel tank by LRA. I have discovered that my rear driveshaft is making contact. Specifically the bolt heads connecting it to the axle are digging into the fuel tank when I flexed hard.
Is there an aftermarket drive shaft that is smaller diameter and good quality...
I have a set of synergy coil springs for JT/JL
Part numbers 8863-30 and 8864-30.
These are great springs and very comfortable multi rate springs.
I have had them installed for 3 months and approx 700 miles. After adding my rockhard skid plate and auxiliary fuel tank, I am too heavy for the...
I had MY*JLUR regeared to 4.88 DanaSpicer gears. After the 500 mile service, the shop changed the gear oil using GL5 80w90 Dino oil.
The told me under no circumstances to use RP or any other synthetic oil. The reason was the new gears require different oil.
They also don't want me to use the...
My daughter is in Chicago, and had her 2.0T wrangler oil changed by the dealership. She sent me the service ticket and it says 5qts of 5w20. This is not what I have used when doing her change, I always used 5w30.
Is the weight difference anything to worry about?
This is a picture heavy thread showing MY*JLUR LRA tank install.

Pic #3 - This is taken from the rear, looking up. You can see the fuel transfer...
I have 37in KO2 All Terrain tires on a 17x9 wheel.
Shown in this image is an unmounted Toyo MT 37x13.5x17.
The specs call for this to be approx 0.5inches taller, but as seen, they are much taller.
I am assuming that the fact it is not mounted and under weight is accounting for the remaining...
