    Minimal Tire Carrier Bumper

    I was thinking slotting the holes that mount to the tailgate, much easier to do. I modified my stock carrier heavily to support the 35 on headlocks so I know the addition of flat at would work. It’s just how much effort you want to put into it. I do not personally like the spaced out spare...

    Minimal Tire Carrier Bumper

    It sounds like you are barely off from clearing your bumper so why not simply oval your stock mount holes 1/4 inch and adjusting it up a hair? You could also take the stock mount to a fab shop and have them weld 1” flat bar to the bottom and top below where the existing holes are and...

    Front Spring Retainers

    I already said that, the washboard is where it was noticed, which was probably due to the continuous repeated quick spring cycle.

    Front Spring Retainers

    The Currie bump stops hold the springs in place, they may not “lock” them but they do prevent them from falling out in the event of an over extension. I also stated that my shocks prevent the springs from extending past unseating. The springs also have wear marks on the cut spring end where...

    Front Spring Retainers

    Not arguing physics, I stated I was playing BEFORE the washboard and after, on the washboard was when the noise was apparent. Very well could have popped out somehow PRIOR to the washboard, which was stated in the original post.

    Front Spring Retainers

    It was for sure in the spring stop, it hasn’t been an issue for 4 years. I was in some flexing before the washboard road but that’s when the racket began.

    Front Spring Retainers

    Reviving this one. I have the Currie setup which uses the bump stop to lock the spring in place and also my shocks are appropriate for the droop. That said, I was out playing around and when I hit the washboard road after I had a clunk noise coming from the front. Got home, searched high and...

    Replace Shift Selector Seal

    Freezing it did not work for me and after fighting it for hours, ruining two seals I decided a “special tool” was needed. I built this brace so that it holds center on the drain pan edges and carries the load of the c-clamp on the bolts. Dandy PVC nipple ground to fit the seal attached to a...

    Yukon Hub Kit With Black Magic Big Brake Kit

    I’ve done some searching and cannot seem to find this easily but if one has the Black Magic Big Brake kit what is required to make the Yukon hub kit fit? I recall some had to have some machine work done but I can’t recall exactly what it was. Any help is appreciated.

    SOLD Fox 2.0 Front Shocks for ~4" lift

    Valved is a term used in the motorcycle industry if suspension has been specifically valved/shimmed for a specific application/rider. It looks like he understands that term but next time I’ll be sure to ask if the shims have been arranged specifically for the Jeep TJ application or if they are a...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Lowered radiator shroud, it had about .25” clearance from when I did the MML and the 1.25 BL and for some reason just lately if I get flexed a little the fan would hit it. Lowered it .75” and it now has a bit more clearance so hopefully that’s resolved. Also modified my rear cargo area...

    Modifications and advice for extreme cold

    Have you priced 33 or larger studded tires? $400 wouldn’t cover one of them. You can also take these studs back out and re-use them. I just put last years back in mine and it was a piece of cake and it works great on shitty roads again.
