    Thanks for all the replies. Just goes to show you, if you have any kind of an electrical mystery, check the grounds first.

    Engine ground problem (I think)

    1998 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 L I left my lights on for the whole night in the dead of winter and killed my battery. (a relatively new battery) A week later (weekend jeep driver) I tried starting and just got a clickity-click out of it, so I tried using an old jumper pack and still nothing. I thought...

    Switching to a 4WD cable

    Thanks Guys, Looks like the cable shifter is a good solution ,, but it is currently unavailable from Amazon. I'll check some other sources here in Canada. I'll check out the shifter bracket too.

    Switching to a 4WD cable

    1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ I had the problem of the transfer case getting stuck in 4W High. The mechanic says the person (previous owner) should have installed a drop down bracket for the shifter to keep the linkage level. The mechanic tightened the linkage and it's working fine again, but he says...

    Bosch 67655 fuel pump

    Hey Jerry, is this part number still valid? There is a warning message on the amazon.ca page that suggests this will not fit a 1998 jeep wrangler TJ. A garage here in Canada quoted $699.00 CAD to replace the whole assembly. I'm not sure how much of that is labor, and as you mentioned that...

    Jerry, yes, I only connect it when I plan or have to use it when I get myself in a situation where I need to be yanked out. :) .

    Anyone have one of these Bus Bars to power their winch?

    Ok, Thanks,, so for now a direct connection to the battery may be best. So is there a big risk in damage in a direct connection? If so, what would you suggest?

    Anyone have one of these Bus Bars to power their winch?

    Hi, I have a strange looking bus bar with 3 - 50amp ganged circuit breakers on the positive battery post. This is to power the winch shown below. I do not see any specs on the winch to know if this is what I really need to protect the winch from drawing too much current. Anyone had any...

    Battery Terminal Anti-Spark Guard

    Mine has it. When I first looked under the hood (when I was buying the Jeep), I thought the PO didn't know any better and had the battery put in backwards, but no it was a design engineer goof up. Even with the guard, it still somewhat of a hazard. Disconnect the negative terminal first.

    Fender replacement advice

    Thanks guys, I should have mentioned I'm only replacing the front left and front right fenders. Seems like beer is the go to elixir to cope with problems, and yes I agree no sense in carefully removing what's going to go the garbage. Rivet nuts look to be damn handy too! Ha Ha, I thought those...

    Fender replacement advice

    Hi, I'm planning to replace both fenders with new ones on my 1998 tj. Can anyone with that experience tell me what "extras" do I need to have on hand just in case the removal process breaks stuff. Like, do the plastic nuts hold up OK for replacement? How about extra screws, bolts etc. ...

    Yes, there seems to be few folks put off by this type of grill. :) It would be pretty low on my must change list.
