    Custom exhaust / cat removal (2006 TJ)

    I'm tired of my TJ sounding like a whiney hair dryer. I need some growl. Unfortunately I live in a far away land where off the shelf exhaust solutions for these don't exist, so I have to custom build at an exhaust shop. But Fortunately, emissions laws don't exist here so I can do whatever...

    Moving lower control arm mount point and anti-squat question

    I was watching a video the other night on TJ ride comfort improvements and one of the things mentioned was re-drilling the LCA mounting point lower in the bracket to flatten out the LCA angle Now I realise this would change the anti-squat....from my understanding this would LOWER the...

    Brakes grabbing going forward but not reverse

    My TJ currently goes a few weeks to a month without driving, just because I'm busy with other stuff. But sometimes after a period of sitting still, the brakes seem to "grab" when applying them. Like there's nothing...nothing....nothing... GRAB and almost lock.....like a vehicle with old drum...

    2006 TJ or 2013 JKU Rubicon 10A?

    Unfortunately we didn't get any LJs or ANY Rubicons in South Africa. It was only 4L (no 2.5 option) TJ, Sport or Sahara. Those were the only choices really. The JK's finally arrived in Rubicon spec. But even then my wife's 10A came without the tyres or bumpers that came on your 10A Rubicons...

    2006 TJ or 2013 JKU Rubicon 10A?

    The problem is that I already have a Motorcycle as well haha I think I was just having a moment of weakness. I think I need to wait till the baby's actually here and everything has settled and then see what we need to do. Carseat fits in the JK (just). I actually drive a Ford T6 Ranger...

    2006 TJ or 2013 JKU Rubicon 10A?

    I'm trying to make a logical choice over a topic that is more heart than head. As it turns out, my wife and I ended up both owning Wranglers. I've got a 2006 TJ Sahara 4L and she got a 2013 JKUR 10th. Before we had kids I was like, yes, it's silly to have 2 but screw it, I like Jeeps. My...

    WARNING:Graphic RHD content RHD rear axle clearances

    So I Finaly got around to making up some proper bump stops for the rear of my Jeep this weekend. I went through the process of pulling the wheels and springs out and jacking the axle up to full shock compression, backing it off a hair and then adding the required bumpstop spacer. One general...

    Does this look right for the V8 ZJ tie rod setup?

    Sorry for the Multi-posts 🙈 Just in SA these parts are pretty scarce, I need to make sure I'm ordering the right stuff. This looks like exactly what I need but the reviews are terrible: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QJBL058/?tag=wranglerorg-20 Any thoughts?

    Does this look right for the V8 ZJ tie rod setup?

    Now I'm looking closer I see this is the ZJ Draglink AND Tie rod setup. Is there any advantage to the ZJ draglink of the TJ?

    Does this look right for the V8 ZJ tie rod setup?

    Had my Jeep get the check over by my Jeep dude today and he says the Steering joints are starting to wear. I figure I may as well replace stuff with the ZJ V8 setup. I'm in South Africa though so ZJ's are rare as duck lips. Do these part numbers look right...

    Can I briefly loosen the transfer case output yoke bolt?

    Yeah this is what I mean. I realise I said "Bolt" instead of nut in the heading, so I caused plenty confusion. My bad. Yeah, I wasn't there for the install of the SYE kit, so I didn't realise. When I went to go remove the rear shaft to do some vibration hunting I remembered the Driveshaft...

    Can I briefly loosen the transfer case output yoke bolt?

    Are we all talking about the same bolts? :ROFLMAO: The 4 bolts that go through the output yoke, from the back (of the yoke. Front of the vehicle) and thread into the double cardan joint on the Drive shaft. Current bolts are the correct length, they are just the wrong head. The shop that...

    Can I briefly loosen the transfer case output yoke bolt?

    Yeah I mean can get the bolts off, but it's not pretty, the wrench does not engage nicely at all, and I'm worried those heads are gonna end up rounding after repeatedly doing it. I'm just trying to make future me's life easier.

    Replacement struts for hardtop rear glass?

    Yeah some local TJ guys have found a gas strut place locally that has the right length, we're just tryna make sure we don't get ones that are so strong they turn the rear glass into a catapult haha Or too weak that they don't lift it. But I think 145N (33lbs) is right.

    Can I briefly loosen the transfer case output yoke bolt?

    Haha, yeah I can't magic the new ones in:ROFLMAO: I think it'll be fine. I think absolute worse case I manage to screw the seal up, but if Im careful it shouldn't. Looking at Teraflexes install PDF there's no crush washer or anything that looks consumable. Now i just gotta find those...

    Replacement struts for hardtop rear glass?

    Oh No, I mean the actual force that the struts provide to the glass. Like how much they lift the thing. Apparently if you get ones that are too strong you can put too much force against them trying to close and crack the glass.

    Can I briefly loosen the transfer case output yoke bolt?

    Ok maybe I didn't explain properly. I can't get the old bolts out, or the new bolts in with the yoke in place and fastened down by the big nut on the end of the output shaft. I want to loosen that nut for like 30seconds while I quickly slide the old bolts out, and the new bolts in, and then...

    Replacement struts for hardtop rear glass?

    Does anybody know what the stock force on these struts should be? I *think* they need to be 145N (33lbs or so) but not sure.
