Jeep Tricks

What are some of the things you need to do to get some parts working, that make your jeep "yours"?

Sometimes my ignition switch won't do anything, so I unlock the column and bang the steering wheel up and down before it starts.

I also smack the heater knob when it's in the 3rd or 4th position to get it to work

mine doesnt have to have a key to start, and to get it to completely turn off I have to wiggle my shifter (its an auto) sometimes the heater interfears with my radio and I have to wiggle the heat off and on a couple times and the radio works...got to love a jeep

My tach sticks at 2200rpm so after a few smacks or hard bumps it works. The bad thing is when I finally get it to work it only takes one bump to mess it up again. That's the only thing I have found out so far...
