    Project Pissed Off Wife II: Teeth > Jeep

    When I look at your picture it looks like there are clips that likely fit over the edge of the pod and then the screw threads into the clip. Not sure if I’m missing the point or not. Sorry if I am.

    Popping in the rear axle

    Those symptoms are typical of driveshaft U-joint failing. Maybe remove the rear driveshaft and drive with only the front wheels and see if the noise persists.

    Project Road Salt - A Michigan Jeep Build

    Great job salvaging the frame. The welding looks perfect. I had a similar issue and found a donor frame in Indiana. Word of advice - don't ask this group for name suggestions. Maybe it's already too late.

    Here is some reality of today's world

    I support the police. What's going on right now is difficult to comprehend. You guys have a very difficult job and are under scrutiny for every action you take. When you boil it down, the two recent tragedies occurred because of resisting arrest. It's easy to watch the video and say you...

    This is what the electric Jeep is going to look like at Moab

    The consumer’s appetite for EV cars will likely follow gas prices. Releasing an EV Renegade or Compass right now doesn’t seem to achieve FCA’s mission statement of providing “exciting products”. I’m not smart enough to predict the future, but I have a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid with 232K miles...

    So I wasn't actually shopping for a TJ for me

    Looks good. I can't say that I've seen anyone cut the flairs before, but it's a good look.

    Tcase leaking after SYE

    I used the Advanced Adapters SYE kit. I also used a rebuild kit. I think the rubber star washer was in the rebuild kit. The washer that was originally on the output shaft was a bit worn but probably could have been reused with some RTV. maybe just opening the vent will help.

    Tcase leaking after SYE

    Did you put RTV on the output shaft housing? There is also a rubber seal that slips over the output shaft. I watched the Advanced Adapters video and they put RTV around that small seal as well. I wouldn’t have known this without watching the video.

    So I wasn't actually shopping for a TJ for me

    Looks very clean. Keeping it stock would actually be the sensible thing to do, but this site is not called “Sensible Wranger TJ Forum” for a reason.

    Saving a 2000 Jeep TJ

    Nice work! I started repairing a rusty Jeep about 2 years ago and it became a frame off restoration. I hope to have it driving this summer. I like you’re approach of fixing what needs to be fixed and driving it.

    Are online car lease swap sites reputable?

    This is not a Jeep question but this site seems to have people with various car knowledge. I would like to lease a car for 6 months - I’m expecting my Jeep build to be my daily driver in the next 4 to 6 months. Dealerships that I’ve talked to do not offer anything less than 24 months. There are...
