    Ignition switch wire colors

    post is as relevant as ever, The older these tj's get the more people will find the wiring harnesses melted. I can confirm at least up to 2003 have this issue.

    Return to Center Advice

    Glad you figured it out. I have had a jeep with snappy BMW like return to center, after I axle swapped it went to the dump. I am in the same boat as you were. the only point of play for me when off and parked is box, not shaft or linkage. So far I have this cracked in my shaft, don't know how...

    Bronco vs. Wrangler

    i agree, the bronco is offroad robust, but if you want 40's its gonna be hard to reengineer that front ifs and easier to solid axle swap it as of rn. At that point u have a wrangler. But for onroad and off road use i think bronco is better, for offroad only jeep is better, for on road with...

    Bronco vs. Wrangler

    huh, the 3.8 jk committed suicide. the 3.6 has been mostly reliable but i hated driving it, lacks low end torque compared to the tj. I have a JL and tj, while the new jeeps can hold up would u rather rock rash a 2003 tj or a 58k Wrongler.

    Power steering pumps

    When I swapped axles i also changed from stock tj steering to the ZJ linkage from the guide on here. I had to get a custom rear track bar to fit the Dana 60. All tie rod ends are tight, only thing loose was the steering stabilizer wiggling from bolt/metal sleeve from the axle side mount, I took it...

    Power steering pumps

    I though I had a sloppy ZF steering box and just swapped to NEW lares. Now the Lares is acting precisely like the ZF I pulled out... My thoughts are ,that since the adjuster makes no difference, that the power steering pump does not give me enough pressure to the box to make my steering not...

    32RH first gear holds way too long all of a sudden

    That looks terrible. I'm surprised it still even works half decent. When in doubt drop the pan.

    32RH first gear holds way too long all of a sudden

    You guys are right, I was going off the 42rle Computer-driven design. The Hydraulic 32rh is beyond me

    32RH first gear holds way too long all of a sudden

    That evap issue seemed minor and unreleated. Maybe the gas cap was left off or the purge solenoid got stuck, just emissions stuff anyway

    32RH first gear holds way too long all of a sudden

    Maybe its the throttle position sensor, grew a new dead spot?

    How to install a Derale 20561 transmission cooler on your Wrangler TJ

    Yeah Jerry's advice applies to all transmissions. I first learned it from this post but it is true that the ATF fluid is a huge factor in how long a tranny lasts and fluid , unlike oil hates to get hot, and degrades over time with overheating/use. Changing the fluid can also make or break an...

    How to install a Derale 20561 transmission cooler on your Wrangler TJ

    Good to know I got 160k on my factory 42rle and it runs perfectly...for now... I was at JR auto Wreckers and I heard the 42rle is getting somewhat harder to come by. rebuilt should last a lot longer than a questionable used. But the rebuild kits for all trannies can be on backorder for months at...
