    Talk me out of buying a $2,200 TJ sight unseen and minimal details

    Agreed. If this was same condition but had a Dana 44 and a hardtop, or any other worthwhile bits I’d buy it to swap over to mine and sell. But there’s like nothing good on this thing lol. Maybe a hood or the half doors.

    Talk me out of buying a $2,200 TJ sight unseen and minimal details

    Update and edit w/ pics: I passed, pretty rusty and it looks like a crack at the A-portion of the frame/control arm area. Also I ended up not having to pay the $100 so that’s good!

    Talk me out of buying a $2,200 TJ sight unseen and minimal details

    To share a little more background, I have a friend of a friend who owns a buy-here-pay-here lot, and a lot of local dealers will call him up just to unload $2,500ish or less cars they took on trade rather than even transport it to the auction. So a local new car dealer took this TJ in and asked...

    Talk me out of buying a $2,200 TJ sight unseen and minimal details

    It's a long story and the details are boring, but let's just say, hypothetically, if this opportunity came into your lap and you had to decide in 12 hours, would you jump on it or pass? Here's what you do know: - 01 4.0L 5 speed - 178k - Clean title, Carfax shows an accident a few years back...

    Intermittent No Start - Ignition

    Bump...any other thoughts? Still having this happen, no stalling issues, no codes, no "NoBus" warning, no weird gauge activity. Does it sound like PCM problem? I've read about the CPS issues but they seem to be different than what I'm experiencing. Of course I pulled out my phone to take a video...

    Intermittent No Start - Ignition

    2000 4.0 5speed Twice recently when I've tried to start my TJ, it will crank and not turn over. When it does this I will lose my dash lights/odometer/idiot lights completely. Then out of nowhere on a 5-6th attempt it will fire over and everything will illuminate. No codes and everything runs...

    I have a sticking caliper and intermittent starting issues at the moment :-( so I don't think I'm ready to roll the dice heading out there this weekend. Next time!

    Think I saw it here but maybe it was on Facebook - is anyone planning Big Bend over Memorial Day?

    Texas Texas Jeepers!

    I may be able to do the 30th - TBD for now. Can anyone do Hidden Falls on April 27th? I have a friend coming in town and wanted to take him out that day as well.

    Free 2” Budget Boost

    Free + shipping. Pulled this 2” Rocky Road Outfitters BB off my TJ, I believe it is about 8 years old. In good shape, includes the bar pin eliminators, I still need to unbolt them from the old shocks. Ran this with 32s with no rubbing issues off-road.

    Texas Texas Jeepers!

    Thanks Jeremy! Dude, after just some Liquid Wrench soaking and gentle turning all four came out with zero drama. On cloud nine right now I’ve been positive at least one was going to snap for weeks. Beer time and I’ll get back to it tomorrow

    Texas Texas Jeepers!

    I just went with the stock looking replacements for now. The knockoff bushwhackers looked horrible! I have everything removed now, new ones need to go on this weekend. I’m going to pull the inner fender wells to make it all easier. Most terrified about these upper shock bolts in the rear...

    Fender Flare Hardware?

    Thank you! That is extremely helpful. Do you know which direction those plastic nuts lay, (does it matter?). Guessing the flat side goes against the body? Are the plastic push pins to replace any that may break when removing the inner fender?

    Fender Flare Hardware?

    My TJ had those really cheap $60 pocket flares on it when I got it. They were cracking and fit terribly, so I ordered a set of Crown OEM-style replacement fenders with hardware. I removed the old flares (nutserts stripped out but that’s a topic for another post), but since they were already...

    Texas Texas Jeepers!

    Yep! Also adding JKS quick discos and a Savvy shifter linkage. Already thinking about selling the 32s for 33s and adding the 1.25in body lift but we will cross that bridge in the new year
