    What's going on with my lugnuts?

    Hey guys, I’m super confused here. Last year my front left fell off while driving, luckily I was okay. I was confused because I was pretty sure I torqued all the lug nuts, figured maybe I forgot or something and thought it was just a weird happening. Just now, I felt something weird and still...

    Hello, the last few months I have occasionally been getting a P0174 code, stating bank 2 is running too lean. I replaced all 4 O2 sensors but it did not help. Thanks to @AndyG i learned a bit about fuel trim from this site and tested it with my code reader. At idle, the short term trims hover...

    New head unit says miswiring

    Hello, I just installed my new JVC head unit. I tested it and it worked, so I then installed my new sound ordnance 4 channel amp. Now when I start it I get a message saying “miswiring”. I have the amp connected to the head unit with a 4-way rca cable. I thought it was a ground but I put it on...

    Best place to buy a winch?

    I’ve been looking into winches more seriously now, my top choice is the Smittybilt x20 comp 10k. I was debating buying the badlands apex winch since it’s $100 off right now, but I still prefer the smittybilt. The smitttbilt is currently $624 on Amazon, although the price fluctuates a lot. I...

    Melting fuse and no tail lights or dash lights

    Hello, I am having an issue where every now and then my tail lights, dashboard lights, and side markers will turn off. Often it will go back to normal or I can wiggle around the fuse and it will fix it. However, this time I was not able to fix it and had to drive 2 hours on the highway with no...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Didn't know about fitment issues... my top does bow down in the middle and pools rainwater. I don't think my old one (sierra offroad) really did that, so could just be bad fitment maybe

    Bestop Replace A Top Installation Questions

    Morris 4x4, although I have heard they’re very slow with shipping in general. I ordered it last May and it didn’t come until the fall Probably the same storm we’re getting here in CT tomorrow, looks like a lot of rain so I’ll figure out if it will leak pretty fast 🤣

    Bestop Replace A Top Installation Questions

    Great, maybe I can try stitching this one back and have 2 tops. I’m hoping it doesn’t leak how it is now, especially because this too took 6 months to arrive

    Bestop Replace A Top Installation Questions

    It was stitched on but it pulled out when I very lightly tugged on it. So they must have barely done it. I’m wondering if I can stitch it back together myself? I wouldn’t want to have them send a new top or anything

    Can someone recommend a quality locking gas cap

    I ran over my gas cap the other day (went into the gas station and forgot I left it on my tire instead of putting it back on) so I was thinking of getting a locking one since I need a new one anyway. But after seeing all this it seems pointless, so I'll try gluing mine back together and if it...

    PSA: Do your self a favor and wear PPE!

    Hmmm maybe I should buy a face shield, I always use safety glasses but looks like that wouldn't help here. In the past I've been under my car grinding off a bolt or something with my angle grinder right near my face, I didn't even consider how dangerous it was until I was looking back at it...
