    Engine does not run right after valve job

    In a previous thread, I posted about a P0301 misfire. #1 compression was 125. The rest were 160... So I pulled the head and discovered the exhaust valve was not seating correctly. I sourced another 0331 head and had the machine shop magna flux/shot peen/valve job/deck it. Basically the head...

    P0301 and nothing left to change but this

    I have literally changed everything know to man in an attempt to rid myself of this P0301 misfire code. The only thing left was a compression test. Guess what. Cylinder 1 was 125. all the rest were in the 160s. So I pulled the head. The number 1 exhaust valve was recessed in the seat!! All the...

    Did my 05 Rubicon come with a double cardan rear driveshaft from the factory?

    Help with rim sizing for an 05 Rubicon

    So I just reduced the lift height on my Rubicon from 4.5" to 3". I want to run 33x10.5 tires. Half the comments I read say the 33s will be OK with 3" lift and half say you need 4". I will simply add a 1.25" body lift if they don't work so lets not go there. My question is I like my tires to be...

    Is the 231 and 241 transfer case interchangeable?

    I am considering doing this: NSG370 to ax15 Terminator transmission conversion: 1. Bell housing from advance adapters Part #712590 = 425.00, needed because it puts flywheel position sensor in correct location. 2. Brand new ax15 1795.00 plus 100.00 shipping from Rockland Standard Gear they have...

    Seeking words of wisdom from the knowledgeable on tire size

    Thinking about lowering my TJ Rubicon

    Well I have a 4.5" Rubicon Express lift and its a bit high for what I want. I was thinking about a set of 3" springs from Terraflex. I just need a little more driveability on the highway to get to the wheeling spots I want to visit. The way it is now, I wouldn't drive it 600 miles to hit...

    New TJ owner. Need help sorting alignment...

    So I picked up a new to me 2005 Rubicon. It was barely drivable. Severe bump steer/wobble/drift, you name it. After doing a lot of research on here, and physically checking the Jeep, all 4 shocks were bad. Zero dampening. Replaced with Bilstein 5100. Drop pitman arm was replaced with a factory...
