    Would anybody south of the border be interested in buying a Canadian LJ Rubicon?

    i wouldn't say its a myth. me being for Newfoundland myself ( please don't make fun lol), the salt on the road plus the dense salty ocean air deff takes a toll on your vehicle no matter how hard you try to stop it. get a rock chip in the paint and 3 months later is blistered..

    Let See your Tire Carrier Builds

    I figured the stock bumper would be to week. I haven’t really looked at it yet. I wanted to remove the bumper and see if I can brace it better but you are right to built your own dumper doesn’t seem like a big task. Thanks maybe I’ll look into building a bumper too!

    Is my HVAC fan bad or the fan switch?

    I agree with that as well. But some motors have a rubber air vent that feeds back to the brushes to help cool them. You take that off and look at the brushes and the armature you can see the armature is carbon tracked which is cause by bad brush contact. Contacts always get hung up in Their...

    Brake pedal goes to the floor when engine is on

    That’s the EVAP canister and the line you pulled off is prob the purge line going into the manifold. What you hear is a vacuum leak. That line needs to plug into your manifold. As for the brakes sounds like you just need them bleed..

    I’ve seen this before with the bulb sockets getting Wet and corroded resulting in the lights doing whatever they feel like lol. Tj taillights are horrible I cannot keep water and moisture out of mine.

    Is my HVAC fan bad or the fan switch?

    agreed. The motor brushes become worn down and contact becomes weaker resulting in higher amperage draw. Higher amperage draw burns up the resistor. I turn wrench’s for a living and see it a lot. I always call a motor and resistor.

    Is my HVAC fan bad or the fan switch?

    The re The red slider is just an assurance device. Once you Pull it back you still need to push the release tab to disconnect. With a blown resistor you may have melted the connector also making it hard to come apart. If the connector is melted then replace the blower motor as well. Along with...

    Wrangler TJ storage project

    That’s so neat! And can be used for so much more. I find storage for recovery gear and other things in my tj a big problem. I have kids so I need my back seat as well. I think if you put some shocks on it like the rear lift gate would be a cool feature as well. Well made and looks solid (y)

    Hard shifting problem with NV3550 manual transmission

    Recommendations for mud flaps (front and rear)?

    True. I don’t ever recall a tj with standard mud flaps although I see a lot of guys using rocktamer flaps that mount the hitch receiver. Their intended purpose are for towing trailers but I never see them towing lol. Maybe it’s a ghost trailer🤔🤪

Fast forward a few days and I come home to this on the door step lol.. 12,000lbs wireless with synthetic rope. I said what the heck and threw it on. I was in...
