    Possible driveshaft or pinion angle issues

    I understand keeping good parts, but if you find something wrong then it makes sense to fix it otherwise what's the point of seeing if it checks bad. If it's not bad, then don't fix it. Have you properly checked your wheel bearings, pitman arm, and ball joints for play? BTW, if you don't know...

    Possible driveshaft or pinion angle issues

    I wouldn’t worry so much about what the damaged part is…that’s getting caught up in the weeds with a microscope. I’d install a RockJock trackbar (proven to be excellent with larger tires) and move on with life and enjoying your rig. Otherwise good steering parts can get ruined when mated with...

    TJ 2001 overheats when stopped

    Also, is your fan blade in the correct direction (should be pulling air through the radiator not pushing towards it).

    TJ 2001 overheats when stopped

    Have you pressure tested the cooling system? Have you visually confirmed that your fan is turning? Using your hand or using an IR gun, have you confirmed that all the hoses are warm (and that your thermostat is open)? I believe the hose at the top of the radiator will not feel as hot if your...

    Got tagged in the parking lot today

    Haha, yea I get revved up wanting to share in hopes to help others. In doing so, I sometimes add tangential info (e.g., me talking about medical damages) in hopes that it could empower folks. I was trying to cut myself off from going too far (believe it or not) lol. Glad their insurance has...

    Keep in mind that some of those fees that you tack on to a company are written off as an "operating expense" or covered by their insurance. I'm built similarly in that I'll fucking fight for what is right, but sometimes our "bite" in doing so does not sink in as deep as we believe it does...

    Got tagged in the parking lot today

    Might again be another policy issue that varies (this time company policy rather than jurisdiction based). When I trashed motorcycle years back, they low-balled me half of the market value, but then I almost tripled my reimbursement from that amount because they slipped up and told me if I had...

    What additional mods, if any, would you make?

    The tie rod comes with the clamps, so it looks like OP would just need new RockJock tie rod ends since mine are on the rig. I asked if the price was good and was told it's a great price (according to someone in the forum whose opinion I greatly trust). LMK if you are interested @Tanksoldier...

    Not in the industry, but my understanding is that they take the cost to fix it divided by the total worth of the vehicle, and it's not totaled if it's under a certain threshold. Can't recall what the exact threshold was for my older vehicle that incurred damage, but I believe it was something...

    What additional mods, if any, would you make?

    FYI, I have a RockJock (Currie) tie rod in excellent shape for sale on the board for $100 + shipping. Not sure if it's plug-and-play with the stock steering (would need RJ tie rod ends but includes the clamps). @Jerry Bransford, do you know if the Currie tie rod works with an otherwise...

    Electric fan + 4.0 liter owner question: what temp?

    There's a balance to the dance, and I'd rather not wait for the fan to kick on when my engine is already at 221*. There might be days where the engine peaks around 221* even if my e-fan kicks on at 210 or so. The goal is to maintain a happy engine temp., but also not overstrain the E-fan...

    Electric fan + 4.0 liter owner question: what temp?

    When my jeep arrived roughly two years ago, the PO was such a fucking dumbass that it's almost embarrassing to even mention. He had a temp switch at 180 for the e-fan, which is dumb because the engine isn't even up to temp yet (thus forcing a full-duty cycle on the fan which likely caused the...

    What additional mods, if any, would you make?

    Wow this looks like something I’d potentially be game to do if I can get some free time. Best of luck! Here’s some random thoughts: Any plans to carry a CB radio or Sat. phone? I’d make sure you have fuses, relays, and extra sensors that are known to shut a jeep down, plenty of tools and...

    SOLD TJ Rubicon - Adams Rear Driveshaft, 1350 CV [Extreme Duty Series]

    Hey JMT, Yes it was mated to the stock Rubicon xfr case. Came with the Jeep and a 3.5” RE lift. PO installed it about six months before I bought the Jeep. I did the Savvy tummy tuck and had the 4” RockJock lift installed. Didn’t have any issues with the part on either setup (and I dialed in...

    Any A/C gurus out there?

    I would be pretty butt hurt if I had to remove the insulation in the winter time lol. Thanks for the in-depth response. I learned some things and learned even more about how I need to learn more things. (sounds like a Rickyism from TPBs)
