    Thinking of a snow plow

    I was in Colorado Springs last month. First time in that part of the country. I can’t tell you how much I wish I had my TJ! Hope you have a great trip and some awesome off roaring!

    Thinking of a snow plow

    I live on a mountain ridge in wester Maryland and get a good amount of snow annually. Every couple fears or so we get one of those 2.5 to 3 footers. As I go off road regularly my concern was the plow mounts and it’s affect on ground clearance. I was hoping that I could find a mounting system...

    Thinking of a snow plow

    I picked up this 1997 TJ last year from the original owner for a great price and it's in great shape. I'm seriously thinking of getting a snow plow for it and was wondering what those of you that have one think? I have about 800' of driveway to clear as well as some close by family that I plow...

    I hate the carpet!

    Thanks for the input. Looks like I’ll keep the carpet after reading these replies and just deal with the drying process. Noise and heat were definitely concerns of mine. When I owned all the early CJs I was quite a bit younger and noise/ heat weren’t really an issue as they are to me now.

    I hate the carpet!

    I've owned a number of jeeps over the years (CJ3A, CJ5, CJ7, Commando a couple SJ's and a couple XJ's) and I picked up this sweet 97 last fall. I've been caught in a couple unexpected heavy downpours this year already with the top down. As expected my carpet gets soaked and depending on the...

    Rod knock or valve train?

    Like mentioned in an earlier post... if you hear it near the bell housing I would deff think flex plate bolts. I had a 32 RH rebuild and the bolts that came with the rebuild kit were just slightly larger. Made a racket similar to yours. Put original bolts back and all A OK!!

    What's everyone's thoughts on plugging the frame rail holes?

    Thanks all. I bought removable rubber plugs off Amazon. Flushed the frame rails till clear water came out. Going to check out “Fluid Film” as well. I have a 97 with a very clean undercarriage/ frame and want to do my best to keep it that way. Might try Gorilla tape as well on the smaller holes.

    What's everyone's thoughts on plugging the frame rail holes?

    Thanks all. I bought plugs from Amazon. Pressure washed the heck out of the frame till nothing but clear water ran out. At least they’re removable so I can flush from time to time. I’ll also check out “Fluid Film”

    What's going on with this noise?

    My 97 Sport with 4.0 and 32RH just started making this noise. I just drove home after about a 15 minute drive to Lowes and back and while it was idling in the driveway this noise started. Any thoughts? It does get worse/ louder when increasing RPM's. Prior to this it has been running perfect...

    JK doors on a TJ

    I saw an add for "Tubular doors" for sale. Seller states they are off a 2010 JK. Will they fit my 97? Great price with mirrors so I'm really interested.

    Has anyone installed a push button ignition?

    I ran a lead from my battery positive and another to the starter solenoid and attached to a starter switch (push button) that I bought at the auto parts store. Ran them through my firewall and mounted under my dash. Been like this now for a few years and no issues at all. Might want to give this...
