    Electric door locks and power windows: Not cool?

    I added power windows and locks, and heated leather seats to my '05. It's my Jeep and I'm the one who drives it, so why should anyone else care? Or for that matter, why should I care what anyone else thinks? Now all that stuff is available direct from the factory anyway, so mine's not that...

    Electric door locks and power windows: Not cool?

    On my '05 the place where I mounted the switches was a blank plate. On earlier models there used to be a switch to shut off the passenger side airbag (I think that's what it was for). The kit I bought came with switches to mount on the doors over the hole left from the original window crank...

    Survey: Who has a turbo / supercharger / stroker and why?

    I've had an '05 Rubicon Unlimited since new, and have had the Banks intercooled turbo for around 5 years. I've done a lot of rock crawling on Fordyce, Rubicon and other trails around here. Never had any issues with the transmission, I'm really happy with it.

    Do I have a limited slip differential?

    Yes, the Trak-Lok was available. I would guess because a clutch-type allows more slippage, it puts less stress on the assembly.

    Do I have a limited slip differential?

    I was able to find this: The Rubicon TJ had a Tru-Lok in the rear, it's a gear type limited slip combined with a manually selectable locker and does not need special lube. The non-Rubicon models had an optional Trac-Lok that is a clutch type limited slip and does need special lube. Trak-Lok...

    Do I have a limited slip differential?

    If I remember correctly, the Rubicon limited-slip is a gear type (like a Detroit Tru-Trac) while the non-Rubicon models got a clutch-pack limited-slip (like a GM Positraction). I think it was only the clutch-pack type that needed special lube. To the original poster, if you don't have...

    Advice on how to sell my Jeep

    Looks pretty awesome! What kind of sled are you running? Back in the '70s I had an Arctic Cat with a Sachs 303 rotary engine.

    Advice on how to sell my Jeep

    Reminds me of living in Wisconsin. When it would snow like that, only 4WDs could get around. Made a lot of money pulling people out of ditches that hadn't learned that.... :)
