    TJR Axle Set on Marketplace in RI

    I live in the next town over. I'd be happy to look at them if anyone is interested. However, I have several Dana 44 axle sets from.the Noetheast. The front looks OK but the rear, I'd be leary to put a needle scaler to the center section.

    Single Axle Crawler Hauler

    Finished cutting and welding the 3"x5" frame rails.

    Single Axle Crawler Hauler

    I was inspired by a "Built, not Bought" FB post about Fred Williams' crawler hauler. It's a single 10k axle trailer that is around 1,000 lbs. and hauls his jeep around. I started pricing a trailer build and quickly got out of the realm of financially realistic. 10k trailer axles, tires, brakes...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    I'm embarrassed to say that it was the fuel.

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    The Saga continues but I think I found the culprit. I tested the crankshaft position sensor & camshaft position sensor with an oscilloscope. I saw a nice waveform from each, when cranking. I checked the ground and and all three injector drivers. I pulled the fuel pump relay, pulled each...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    A little more history to help the cause. The 03 donor was running and driving. Pulled into my shop for the teardown. I did a minor teardown of the motor. Flywheel was pulled, new gaskets, freeze plugs, RMS, water pump, thermostat, timing chain.. the usual. Crankshaft and Camshaft was indexed for...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    I tested compression just when the symptoms started a couple weeks ago. All six cylinders were between 165 and 173 psi.

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    OK, I'm almost at wits end. I unplugged and inspected just about every sensor wiring mentioned above. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. I went back to the basics. Fuel pressure is good at the rail. I bought a noid test light. To my disbelief, all six injectors are getting power and...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    Noted. I'm going to try to get my hands on an oscilloscope this week but I feel as if NEW KPS & CPS sensor replacement should have ruled them out. I know it's not best practice to throw parts at it but I did so, anyways. What I can't seem to find in the FSM, is what "PCM inputs" tell the PCM...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    3/30 UPDATE: ASD relay is working. PCM closes ground, ignition provides 12V and closes the relay to power injectors and O2 sensors, when cranking. Still no start. Crank & camshaft wiring from PCM to sensors checks out good. Back-probed signal relay from Crank sensor and was getting 1-2 volts. I...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    True. I wonder how many sensors share the 5v circuit & ground as the cam/crank sensor? Looks like more FSM book time..

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    Did a little bit of troubleshooting. Zero power to injector fuse and O2 fuse in PDC. I now understand this is powered thru the ASD relay. ASD relay fuse is good and constant power is present at the relay. Ignition power is present at opposite end of coil terminal for ASD relay, when ignition is...

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    Did a gauge cluster test. "Bus B1", "Bus B8" and "Panel Open".. b1 is SKIM - SKIM Message, b8 is ACM - Airbag Message, Panel Open is Panel Sense - Open Circuit (related to the panel lamps dimmer circuitry of the left multi-function switch on the panel lamps dimmer signal circuit)

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    Yes it does. The SKIS indicator flashes on start up for bulb test then goes off after a few seconds. It's my understanding that if flashing or remaining on, it's an indication of SKIM fault, right?

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    Yes, that's correct. I'm going to check camshaft sensor.

    Yes, it ran prior to pulling.

    Troubleshoot a "once fire" and now "no-fire" scenario"

    I swapped a running & driving 03 5-speed donor into another jeep. Everything except the tub, transfer case, frame, and axles are from the 03. Dash, ignition, fuel, PCM, wiring harness, etc. is all from an 03. At crank, it started, ran rough for about 5 seconds then died. Following, a crank but...

    Stretched TJK (bigger rubber & extra inches)

    Well, I reassembled the JK front and have about 100 miles on it. So far, so good. However, this arrived this week. nearly 5 months since ordering.

    Emissions readiness reset

    My state requires emissions testing for inspection purposes on vehicles 25 years old and newer. This is done every two years. Since I've owned my 05, it's always given me issues when it comes time for inspection. I performed TSB # 25-005-13 two years ago and was able to get it to pass after...
