    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?

    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.

    What do I need to replace after drunken night of 4 wheeling?

    We had a boozy night out, carved up some dirt tracks and at some point I hit at least one embankment, not even sure from which direction, I was backwards at some point. What the hell have I done to my jeeeep. Is it bad? All the control arms were new a few months ago. Can I drive it like this...

    Gear shifter slipping out of gear after transfer case drop

    Got a 6 speed manual. My jeep mechanic did a belly drop as I have lift kit. Ever since it's been slipping out of gear in 2nd, 4th reverse etc. Also it won't go into Low 4 as the whole gearbox is now lower... shifter stalk seems to be hitting the plastic surround and preventing it from going...

    What are the physics advantages of putting spare in trunk vs on rear mount?

    I remember hearing Elon Musk saying how porsches made a huge mistake putting engines in the back, because by putting the weight behind the rear axle, it messes up the handling big time. Anyone moved their spare to inside the jeep and noticed a difference? Thinking of doing this. This video is...

    TJ drives much better after going down to 32 inch tires from aggressive 33s

    Also went from 12.5 inch wide to 11.5 inch wide. Still on muddies, but More torque, higher top speed, zippier in and out of traffic (toot toot), can turn full lock now, lower center of gravity, handles like a sports care in comparison. I've driven a stock TJ with 29's and that thing chirped into...

    Got these pods from Ebay Australia (Australian made for 79 Landcruiser rear doors, not cheap, but did the trick.)

Fits on but fan blades are closer to pullies and slightly skim pullies etc. Other than smacking the blades out further with a hammer, is there a solution to this? Anyone had same issue? Can I space it out with a washer so...

    3 inch lift with 6 inch fender flares: What offset wheels do I need?

    Got a TJ 2006. I just want the tires to fill out the guards. It's got 2 inch lift plus 40mm coil spacer. Current tires are 33x12.5 but they sit 40mm outside guards, so offset of rims is obviously way out and they need to go. Current rims have no stamping/markings so no idea of offset. What...

    It works! Revving the nuts off a TJ ended up giving it way more power (no more carbon buildup)

    Was reading about this yesterday, didn't have much faith in it working.... anyway stuck between 3000-4500 rpm for about 20 minutes, then BAM,,,, it got more powerful within seconds. I now have a far more responsive engine with way more power. Had to have made 20hp difference at then wheels...

    Anyone got budget mud tires that turned out to be great?

    I had some great ones called Maxtrek Mudtrac on my old 4x4 but can't find any currently in the size I need. Any other suggestions for good cheapies? I'm trying to save money :( I've been looking at Achilles Desert Hawk m/t but they seem to be a bit slippery in the wet in most reviews.
