    What lockers should I go with?

    Eaton E-lockers. Air lockers are a pain in the ass.

    How stable should my TJ be on the highway?

    My TJ was all over the road at highway speeds, but mechanic fixed camber? Anyway, drives perfectly straight now. Great.

    Rear axle seal leaking - can I still drive my Jeep?

    Taking it into shop tomorrow, but I need to go somewhere urgently today. I've done 300km since it started leaking as I had to return from a trip. There is oil all over back wheel. Will it damage anything if I drive it?

    Thermo fan—can I mount in front of radiator & keep viscous fan?

    Interesting. I assume also that a TJ without an AC condenser would run cooler.Also a thermo fan in front would restrict air flow while driving... AHHH! Can't wait for an electric version of a wrangler, internal combustion engines are just ridiculously complicated.

    Thermo fan—can I mount in front of radiator & keep viscous fan?

    Maybe I should take it to my local radiator shop and get them to do a bleed or whatever they use... vaccum? not sure. In summer, I get a boil over on super hot days as soon as I stop the car. I have a new aftermarket aluminium radiator and I am suspicious about weather the cap is doing its...

    Thermo fan—can I mount in front of radiator & keep viscous fan?

    I have used a bleed funnel on it but I'm not sure if there is any air in there. Is there a way I can install an air bleed valve at the highest point in the system or something? I used the correct thermostat. I do however have a high flow thermostat which I am considering installing. It never...

    Thermo fan—can I mount in front of radiator & keep viscous fan?

    Only on 110+ degree days, and only when I stop (boils over). I have replaced every single part of my cooling system, water pump, thermostat, radiator, the lot. I've checked for head gasket leaks.

    Thermo fan—can I mount in front of radiator & keep viscous fan?

    It gets very hot where I live. Is it possible to add a thermofan in front of the radiator (in front of AC condenser) while keeping the viscous fan? I imagine most people remove the viscous fan.... but I like the idea of keeping it in case the electric one stops working.

    Alcoa 15" wheel and Duratrac 33x12.5. Do I need wheel spacers?

    I have 3 inch lift and ran 33x12.5 on 8 inch +25mm offset rims. They were super aggressive tread and rubbed at full lock and on my guards which are 6 inch bushwhacker flares. They actually stuck out 20-30mm past the guards which is super illegal here. I ended up getting 32x11.5 Maxxis Razer...

    Gear shifter slipping out of gear after transfer case drop

    Oh I see whats happening... as the shifter handle is brought from 2H down to the 4Lo, the lever just below the shifter is gradually less able to exert any forward pushing force as its going past the angle that the lever can work (over centre?)... therefore as its pushed past neutral into 4lo...

    Gear shifter slipping out of gear after transfer case drop

    So I'm doing this job right now. I've loosened bolt so its super loose, put shifter into 4lo (as far as it will go, so it's against the metal at the bottom)...pushed rod all the way forward and kept force on the rod while I tightened the bolt. Tried the gears while running...I am still having...
