I then unplugged all the connectors that are on the throttle body and started it up and had a low idle about 500rpm. When...

    I’ve been waiting for front axles from revolution since last November. I was in no rush and I never thought it would take this long. They still don’t have an ETA. If your in a rush you might want to find them else where.

    I am doing a complete restore of a 2002 tj sport and will be putting a 4” currie lift and 1.25 body lift. My plan was to do a 1” motor mount lift and replace the old worn oem motor mounts. Is it necessary to get the oem from rock auto or will the napa version be ok? What is the reasoning behind...

    Gear Pattern Check

    I know the drive side looks too deep to me. But I don’t have a lot of experience with gears, someone else will definitely let ya know.
