    How many bumpers have you been through?

    I've never seen a Fishbone bumper, so I can't speak to its quality. The Poison Spyder bumper comes raw steel and has to be painted, but the quality is top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.

    Advice on replacing front axles

    Best to pull them and see. This is what I found when I pulled a pair. A break waiting to happen!

    04 Rubicon 42RLE to AX-15 transmission swap

    That's consistent with what I see. With a combination of a hot summer days and long hill climbs, I've seen my temps rise as high as 188°. I've thought about adding the Derale fan cooler, but there's too much sloppy stuff where I live!

    04 Rubicon 42RLE to AX-15 transmission swap

    The 42RLE gets a bad rap for two reasons: 1. Not having the proper gearing 2. '05 - '06 PCM problems Having the right gearing will help put a smile back on your face! In case you haven't done it yet, installing a good transmission cooler, along with a temperature gauge, will help the 42RLE...

    What did you do to your LJ today?

    Since Mopar sensors are critical to keeping check engine lights away, I ordered new Mopar Crankshaft, Camshaft and Throttle Position Sensors. These will go in my trail parts box.

    How many bumpers have you been through?

    I have a Barnes aluminum front bumper, which is no longer made. I've mocked it up on a couple Jeeps, but never used it. Someday it will go on a Jeep, but for now it's just hanging out with all the other parts that are unused! 🥴

    Florida 2003 TJ Wrangler X 4.0L Automatic

    If you put the VIN number, everyone here can also get the build sheet at: https://fcacommunity.force.com/RAM/s/equipment-listing Like I said, this is a clean looking Jeep and I wish you were closer!

    Stock TJ - another deal of a lifetime

    Hallucinogenic drugs are a lot more prevalent than I thought!

    Florida 2003 TJ Wrangler X 4.0L Automatic

    Very nice looking Jeep. If only you were closer to me! You may want to take some pictures of the frame, in multiple places. Most folks here will ask that question up front.

    What makes my 05 TJ stumble at times?

    This is an important question! - Does it happen when the vehicle is only cold? - Does it happen only when the vehicle is hot? - Does it happen regardless of being hot or cold? The more specific you are, the better we're able to help!

    Upgrading diff before suspension?

    That list sounds like overkill for running 31" tires.

    UCF and Savvy rear bumper questions

    Before ordering it call Matt at UCF and ask him if they'll give you a forum discount. Normally they do 10%.

    UCF and Savvy rear bumper questions

    I've been running that bumper for 5+ years and it's a very good product. I originally bought it because I had a requirement to carry a basket or tow a small trailer.

    Skid plate opinions

    The Rubi shaft will have a flange on one end and 1330 u joint on the other (to mate to the Rubi 44), so it's best to get a new DS.

    UCF and Savvy rear bumper questions

    Are you looking at this UCF bumper? https://undercoverfab.com/jeep-tj-lj-97-06/201-ucf-aluminum-rear-bumper-for-jeep-yj-tj.html If so, this one is actually a hybrid, i.e it has a steel core with an aluminum bumper overlay. I run the bumper on my LJ, with the tire carrier, and it can easily...

    Skid plate opinions

    It is a direct bolt in, but not a bolt and go. The stock 231 uses a yoke, which accepts a 1310 u joint on the end of the driveshaft. The rubicon case uses a flange mount on the end of the driveshaft.

    I am overwhelmed. Please help me build my TJ

    I've built a number of TJs and LJs over the years and it's incredibly easy to get overwhelmed with all the options. Of all the builds I've done, ranging from 31" to 35" tires, my absolute favorite to daily drive was a simple one that had H&R springs (1" suspension lift) , a 1" body lift, OME...
