    Bought a 2001 TJ with emissions deleted

    Just bought a 2001 TJ 4 cylinder. I don’t have much experience with cars but have wanted to get handier, was going to use it as an occasional driver and learn how to fix things up along the way. I took it for a pre-purchase inspection but the mechanic and I both missed that the entire emissions...

    Vapor hose for an 05 or 06

    I am apparently missing the vapor hose that goes from the charcoal canister to the fuel tank with the "T" connection on it. Anyone know if there is anything special about that hose as far as a specific type of connection or is there an inline valve of any sort or can I just make one up using...

    What is this part?

    Hello all, I have a 2004 wrangler. My Anti drain back valve on my fuel pump went bad so I am replacing my fuel pump with a Bosch one as per many recommendations on this and other Jeep forums.

    Replacement Catalytic Converter

    Hi all, I've been forced to get my catalytic converter fixed because I'm moving to a state with emissions testing. I've had the P0420 code for over 5 years now. Recently, I had a dealer install a new converter, but the code is still present. I think this is because the converter the dealer put...

    What's the difference between a CARB vs. NON CARB compliant cat system?

    What's the difference between a CARB vs. NON CARB compliant catalytic converter system? I have an 06 X with 4.0. I'm considering replacing my cat system with Magaflow system. There are two offerings, part number 93649(non-carb compliant) and 458027 (carb compliant). Does the jeep ECM know if...

    The EPA Wants To Make It Illegal to Modify Your Bike for Racing
