    Why the Insulation on Wire Connectors?

    The colour coded plastic insulation is handy for knowing what gauge wire they are for but I always pull them off and use heat shrinks. You can buy connectors without the insulation but the ones with it are so commonly available that's what I go with. The insulation on colour coded butt...

    All things welding

    I see in your last pic that you've turned a Carpenter's square into a Weldor's square. I've "cut corners" too. (y)

    What is your socket organization method?

    That's the type I use too. I simply have all of my SAE sockets on the left and Metric on the right. all of the odd stuff meets in the middle.

    My Brother has a 1966 Country Squire and it has a 2 way tailgate too. I think they came out in 1965.

    How to install Hyundai Tiburon seats in a Jeep Wrangler TJ

    I don't use the feature very often either. I removed my rear seat and the brackets and access the cargo area via the rear door.

    How to install Hyundai Tiburon seats in a Jeep Wrangler TJ

    I don't recall this being a problem. Both sides of mine have the fold and tumble feature but they now work differently. I welded a small leaver to the tube that actuates the fold and tumble and attached a pull chain to it. I really have to yank on the cord and it's not perfect but it works...

    How to install Hyundai Tiburon seats in a Jeep Wrangler TJ

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. I used my oxy/acetylene torch. I don't think a propane, butane, MAP gas, etc. torch will do it. I'd have to look at it more closely but a shop press (no heat) might do it if you have access to one.

    How to install Hyundai Tiburon seats in a Jeep Wrangler TJ

    I heated mine up with a torch and flattened them with a hammer. I imagine you could remove them like I did for the rear brackets but in my case flattening the fronts worked.

    How to install Hyundai Tiburon seats in a Jeep Wrangler TJ

    I drilled out the 2 rivets that hold the bracket on and then discarded them. I used the 2 resulting holes in the rails to mount the Tiburon seats to the flat bar shown in the attached pic. Note the 2 holes at each end of the rear cross bar. This is a good spot to add shims if you want to...

    I dropped by the dealership in town when the Gladiator came out. I was sort of looking ... but not really.

    New Truck Discussion

    I know what I have isn't up to current standards but I try to use my Comanche as a truck as much as I can. I've looked at newer pickups but as I don't plan to get rid of this one it wouldn't make sense to have two. It's good for general recreational use like camping, carrying my kayaks and...

    Heated Seat Recommendations

    For my LJ & XJ, I put them into Hyundai Tiburon seats that I swapped in for the OEM Jeep seats. Both sets are leather seats. I haven't installed seat heaters in OEM TJ seats but I think they might be a bit easier as the materials are softer. The ones I did were easy and I'm sure TJ seats...

    Heated Seat Recommendations

    I am. I've had OEM seat heaters that I think were hotter and more adjustable (Mercedes & Volvo) but these have been plenty hot enough.

    What did you do to your other vehicle today?

    On my 89 Jeep Cherokee, I tracked down and repaired some electrical faults that were causing my turn signals and hazards light fuses to blow every time I turned them on. I pulled the front and rear light fixtures and cleaned them and followed and tested all of the harnesses and generally tidied...

    All things welding

    I agree with this. My Dad taught me the basics of O/A welding when I was about 16 back in the 60s. One of many funny things I remember him saying was to "never use coat hangers as welding rod and when you do don't tell anyone." :giggle: The only other training I've had was from a panel...

    Doors Off, Interior Light Stays On: 2005 TJ

    With the doors open or off the OEM switches are at their full extend and complete the ground thereby turning the dome lights on. The switches I installed defeat the ground. I can’t turn the light off using the stalk.

    Torque Box and Floor Pan Replacement

    I don't recall having a problem with the welds in that area. I only replaced the driver's side torque box and part of the footwell floor. I'm pretty sure I drilled out the spot welds in the area you show in your pic from the under side. I agree with @Vtx531. I cut out the old torque box...
