Also anyone ever experienced a squeaking noise when pressing and releasing the clutch?
It sounds like it's coming from inside the transmission.

I have that happen to me also but it sounds like it is the clutch pedal itself or part of that mechanism. Haven't really looked into it yet but if I find any thing out I'll let you know if no one has gave you an answer yet.

Nice jeep though! I wish I got an LJ instead of a TJ.
Are you going to do an SYE/CV?
I run an optima red top for a battery.

I got to talking to a guy that's very knowledgable on that stuff he said with the Lj it is very unlikely I would need a SYE Or a CV I'm gonna try it without it and if there is a vibration ill go that route first and if there is a vibration ill have to shell out the cash.
How long has your Tj been making the noise?

Yeah I forgot about the DS being a little longer on LJ's and shouldn't hopefully make any vibrations when you lift it.

It's been a couple months but I was thinking that since they are doing construction around my apartment and my jeep sits during the week when I'm in class. So it could just be dusty and needs some cleaning and lubing.

I'm just a little worried about that noise cause I'm heading to Colorado in a couple weeks in it I don't want something to go wrong.

I had a problem with the bolts on it.

I was trying to mount my lights on the windshield pillar lol

It's in the shop right now getting gears axle shafts and lockers right now.
My fenders and rockers will hopefully be powder coated by the end of the week... I can't wait!
