    Need some help identifying control arm joints

    Having looked more on the Teraflex website, I am begging to believe that these are NOT Teraflex joints. At least not the current iteration of it. My joints have c-clips on both sides, and the urethane bushings are different. It looks like the current Teraflex joints only use one c-clip. My...

    Need some help identifying control arm joints

    That's what I was assuming too, but just wanted confirm as Teraflex is experiencing some shipping delays. I didn't want to wait 2-3 weeks to discover that the parts they sent are not correct. Maybe I will try to give them a call on Monday. They are less than 2 hours away from me. I still need...

    Need some help identifying control arm joints

    Hi All! I am currently in the middle of some suspension maintenance and need help identifying a flex joint so that I can get some rebuild parts for it. Also, can anyone name the bushing in the last picture? I typed in that part number in a Google search. Lots of bushings come up, but...

    How do you guys feel about chrome grills?

    Stainless - good Chrome - not so good. Totally IMO I have a white TJ and the painted grill currently looks horrible. Lots of paint chips like it had been kind of sandblasted. I have black tube fenders. I might replace the grill, or get it repainted, one day. Might have to test out a black grill...

    Rust and Powdercoat: How to tame this demon?

    I have some tube fenders that are powder coated black. Some rust is starting to show up in the seams and welds. Is there anything I can do to stop or slow down this rusting? It is pretty minor right now. The coating is not bubbling. I am hoping there is some trick to keep it from getting worse.

    Motorcycles

    I used to be the Southwest Regional rep of The Victory Motorcycle Club. Then I got T-boned while riding home from work one day in 2012. Sure do miss that bike. I now currently ride a Triumph Speed Triple as a commuter.

    I'd like to see your off road light setup

    I wish my lights were round instead of square. But I like the small form factor of the square pods vs the larger round ones I have seen. I haven't seen a four LED light that is in a round housing, but I must admit that I haven't looked very hard. I put some flush mounted LEDs in the rear bumper...

    Lightbar suggestions

    Lightbars are great for putting out a ton of light, but there are a number of downsides like that have already been mentioned. Have you seen this thread discussing lighting options? https://wranglertjforum.com/threads/id-like-to-see-your-off-road-light-setup.37011/#post-612618 As for light...

    TJ Fest 2021 - Moab (April 24 – May 1, 2021)

    Moab is a little oasis in the desert. It is a few miles long, but only like 1/2 mile wide! Everything pretty much is nestled next to the highway. It is totally walkable if you are lucky enough to get a place near the heart. Since the city is long and narrow, Anything to the extreme north or...

    More mountain biking

    The GF, dog, and I just got back from a Biking/Fishing trip in the Sawtooth Mountains above Ketchum. If you haven't been there to do either, you should. Lots of singletrack and accessible waters for everyone to enjoy.

    My new double pulley has Kilby engraved in it.

    How much oil does your York OBA compressor spit?

    Oh, BTW when I did my mod, there was only one hole. I would guess they are all that way. One hole. On the suction side. You really can't screw this up. :)

    How much oil does your York OBA compressor spit?

    The hole you need to plug is in the body of the compressor, not the head. Most just access it through the head by taking the top plate off and leaving the second plate on. The hole is on the suction side of the body. I think it is the one here I circled in blue: You can also plug the same...

    How much oil does your York OBA compressor spit?

    The PO of the Jeep removed the factory airbox and replaced it with a K&N cone. I'm sure the performance increase was staggering! :ROFLMAO:

    How much oil does your York OBA compressor spit?

    I just put a York in my TJ. Just the few instances that I have used it, it did not seem to spit out a lot of oil. I did do the port mod prior to installing the compressor. Also, the setup I used (got the install kit from C.U. Offroad) did not require a longer serpentine. It uses a double pulley...

    Steering gear box replacement question

    I stand corrected. Thanks MrB!

    Steering gear box replacement question

    Am I mistaken? I thought that the relationship of the steering components and the axel were what caused DW. If I am wrong, please disregard my previous posts. When I bought my current Jeep, the PO had slapped together the steering as an afterthought. It had bad bumpsteer and DW. I corrected the...
