    Does anyone actually install gears following the FSM procedure?

    I've never heard of the FSM procedure. Does it go by another name? I am curious about it because I'm about to start with the installation of my gears into my dana 35.

    Will my TJ be strong enough to launch / recover boat?

    I plan on using my 2003 TJ with 32's and 3.73 to tow my 17' flats boat that weighs 1800 lbs rigged out. Does anyone think that I'll have any issues with this? I've got loads of experience towing with trucks; but only limited experience towing with a Jeep.

    Hard start after driving

    My 2003 4.0 has been experiencing similar issues; were you able to find a solution to this? I also noticed a lot of vacuum when opening the gas cap when going to fill her up; did yours do this?
