What up everyone?

So, been cruising this forum for a couple months. Got an 04 TJ the beginning of July. Stoked . Anyway, bought it from a dealership as it was a good deal and as part of the sale they said they would fix the "noisy" throw out bearing for me. I thought it was extra noisy on my test drive, hadn't been in a Jeep for a while. They ended up replacing the bearing and pilot bearing and since they were in there, i had them throw in a new clutch. After that, started getting a knock under drivers side floorboard and I took it to the dealership to get it diagnosed, told me they can't find anything loose but swaybar links were bad, which i knew, so i had those replaced. Anyway, was reading about the floor board knock, seemed it could be the TC linkage. It is. Moving slow, it knocks, pulled the lever up a couple hairs and it stopped. So I will fix that myself soon. Anyway, great forum, lots of help, and I am glad to be a TJ owner. Sorry for long post.
