Sutton...text me at 256-990-4394 if you ever needThanks AndyG. What in the world is "The front left nutsert on the crossmember in front of the transmission is one to watch...you will hear it before you see it?" And "hear" it? I am mechanically inclined but this is first Jeep ever.
Do you mean Sutton or Gilbert? if Sutton, I did not see the white one. He had one TJ Rubi and four or five LJ's (incl my purchase) but one sold while i was there, so now three. All of them are super clean as in little to no rust.
I would love to be able to keep an eye on his inventory.. I only found one advertisement but I can reach out to him
The nutsert is a little Bill that goes up in the frame and expands... Rather than drill and tap the frame... On an automatic this crossmember runs across the front of the transmission skid plate and it may be there on the other models I can't remember... Frame flex tends to cause the nutsert to lose its bite in the frame... And it will squeak and rattle and raise cane ..
All the best... You will enjoy your LJ... usually at the age of these you have to do some small things and maybe work through a squeak here or there but it pays off.
If you've never had a Jeep you're about to have the funnest summer of your life
