    Questions about front brake hard lines

    I was planning on putting the YJ hoses on today to get ready for my lift, but the tube nut decided it likes it's current home. I'm currently putting penetrating oil on it to try again next week however I want to be ready for worst case scenario. Does anyone by chance know the length of the...

    D-ring or Bumper Shackle Mounts (Machined)

    @Jerry Bransford found a picture you posted in the past while researching the Savvy Front Bumper, and have a quick question on your build. I noticed you have what appear to be bolt on shackle mounts, since they are not in the frame rail what are they generally used for? I do agree though, only...

    Intake manifold swap

    @Skylinessuck was considering swapping the manifold and tube, that way I wouldn't have to custom my PCV. The 04 apparently has the intake temp sensor in the manifold unlike the 06 where it's in the tube. Came to my senses though and just rigging up some hoses

    Intake manifold swap

    I'm getting ready to move forward with my intake, but ran into a snag with the PCV. The way I see it I can go a few different routes: 1) fully custom with either 1/2" tube or breathe to atmosphere 2) swap my 2006 manifold and tube to an 04 or prior tube and manifold 3) modify my current tube to...

    Intake other than windstar

    The 92-93 Buick 3.3 intake will, but that wasn't in a junk yard anywhere near me. After an extremely rough mock it looked like it'll work, and looking at it with the hood up it'll definitely work.

    Intake other than windstar

    After quite a few mockups with the Windstar I've decided to go a slightly different route, an intake from a 94 Buick with the 2.2 I4 Since I'll be going about it in roughly the same way as the Windstar I've got a question about fitment. Looks like the radius is about .5-.75" larger than the...

    Rerouting front PCV for intake install

    As I get closer to doing an intake install I've got one last loose end I've got an 06 which, if I'm understanding correctly, is one of two years where the front PCV goes to the air box. I'm trying to reroute it so it's still in a decent spot and the only two things that come to mind is to...

    How do you prevent adjustable control arms from not moving due to rust?

    So after getting one of the lowers off I'm faced with four options: 1) rebuild kits for all 14 joints 2) new rod ends entirely(according to a buddy of a shop I use when I'm lazy Rokmen sometimes bought weird and quite a few different threads so this might be out) 3) buy some Currie or Savvy arms...

    Cleaning out the back for new paint

    @thomat65 hopefully there's no inkling of rust under it. Main reason I'm doing this is to prep for lining the rear, there's a couple of small surface rust spots I want gone before I even think about the lining though.

    Paint Correction Questions

    Just for a before and after using some duplicolor paint primer and clear. There is a noticable ridge when you run your hand along it, so I know I didn't put on as much as the factory did

    How do you prevent adjustable control arms from not moving due to rust?

    Of the two vehicles I'm lucky enough to own this is more of the beater with a heater, a motorcycle isn't exactly useable in subzero weather. Besides they perfectly complement each other, winter is motorcycle customization and weird maintenance while summer is Jeep customization and weird...

    How do you prevent adjustable control arms from not moving due to rust?

    @taylormade73 when you disassembled did you use the actual tool? Looks like a ball joint press might do it

    I live in the rust belt and last summer installed some Rokmen arms, went out today to readjust because something feels wrong (angle was wrong since I didn't correct after removing a tcase drop) , but the joints were rusted to where they wouldn't move and even the Johnny joint itself is extremely...

    Low fluids?

    2006 LJ Dana 44 Just replaced the pinion seal and refilled, but I feel like not enough went in. Using here, a Haynes, and a few other spots I know the 44 should hold 2qts oil, however using the often wrong measurements on the jug it started coming out the weep hole at about 1.5qts. My pinion is...
