    Need help diagnosing brake lock up

    I will. I ordered new pads from you (also drums/shoes). Do I need new rotors? Or can they be resurfaced?

    Need help diagnosing brake lock up

    I have been tied up a bit and hadn't had much time to investigate. However, yesterday and took a good look at my brakes. I jacked the front end up and both wheels sound like metal on metal and my rotors feel pretty rough, especially on the inside side. The outside face has an inch near the...

    TerryD's 2006 LJ Rubicon

    For the tire carrier, if you haven't already ordered (sorry, didn't read closely), look up OR-FAB's carrier. It does what you want and it is built very well. Has cage tie ins, etc. Fits rotopax and has accessory mounts, etc

    Wildman's TJ is getting a face lift

    Here, OnX hasn't caught up yet. I'd probably switch if they had. GIAA or GAIA, it still better and far cheaper. But use what you have for sure! That is why I suggested using an old Android phone to test it out. I thought about buying a dedicated android tablet, but I haven't found the long...

    Wildman's TJ is getting a face lift

    Try an old phone first. Which is what I am doing. If that doesn't work, a tablet isn't going to work. However in the PNW, you have pretty good SAT coverage. Way up north in Ontario where our trails are (relatively speaking) there isn't any cell service, or data, only some SAT.

    Wildman's TJ is getting a face lift

    when it comes to apps, I am more of a fan of open source. It means you aren't stuck with outdated wares. I code a lot in python for my job. I am not a developer per se, but I don't like doing mundane tasks over and again, so I learned to code. Python is open source (most languages have...

    Wildman's TJ is getting a face lift

    I might be over my skis as I didn't read closely enough, but here we tend (and defo me) use GAIA, cause it is a bit more friendly with gpx files we get elsewhere and other 3rd party plugins like Back Country Map Book's layers. [here in Ontario if you pay $25/year you get gpx files of all the...

    Need help diagnosing brake lock up

    I get it but I am not satisfied until I know the why. Don't mean you have to tell me but I'd like to discuss the possible causes

    Need help diagnosing brake lock up

    So Saturday, I was the tail gunner on a fun trail for my club in slick greasy conditions. It was a 3 hour drive north to the trail we were doing. The night before I did an oil change, as I was a bit overdue. One thing I noticed was that I only got about 3.5-3.75 L of old oil out despite...

    1997 Wrangler - 5.3 LS swap TJWhite

    If it were me, I'd probably do the engine swap first with the lift/tires, etc as is to get that out of the way and then sort out the axles, lift, etc when he knows what he wants to build for. But one ton axles with 35" tires doesn't make sense to me at all. They will stick out proudly from...

    What are good LED headlights for my TJ?

    Depends on what you consider scary. Salo, Irrevisible, A Serbian Film come to mind, but your taste might differ. ;)

    Tailgate roll cage tie-in bracket

    I sourced some inexpensive but HD tailgate hinges from Ebay. However, I was looking to see if anyone has seen reinforcement brackets sold individually? I mean the ones that tie into the cage on the passenger side to help distribute the weight on the hinges/body. Might be a long shot. I...

    How to flush the cooling system on your Jeep Wrangler TJ

    All the threads here detail it better than I could. I watched a number YT videos as well to make sure I understood correctly. I don't have any experience working on engines but I am fairly engineering minded and handy, so it wasn't hard. I replaced: Fan Clutch Thermostat Radiator Hoses...

    Easy question: tailgate mount bolt size/pattern

    I long removed and lost the factory spare carrier, but I want to install a license relocation and CB antenna mount plate which didn't come with any hardware. What hardware am I after? (I can't find my thread checker tool).
