New Member, New Jeep, New Experiences...

Hey Everyone!

Just picked up a 2003 Jeep Sport couple days ago. I will post pictures up once i get the camera out of the jeep and it stops raining... But ill just give u a little info for now... When i bought it it had 127*** Km (from ontario canada), with 31" by 10.5 by 15, on aftermarket Unique rims... The jeep came with a soft top and hard top, and most things work well...

Problems that have been fixed:
Heater selector (toes head and defrost knob) fixed as it was not working...

Soft top mounted to rolebar instead of just floating...

bezel on front dash that holds radio has been resecured after one of clips was broken and rattling.

Multiswitch replaces - Foglights, and dimmer where not working...

Changed Rear diff oil, and engine oil.

[B]Problems that i am having problems with...[B/]

Drivers side doorlock can not be locked and unlocked from inside... Havent taken off door because i dont want to break it and have to find out how to do it... and the door cover is cracked...

major rattle from somewhere under the front end... Havent found it yet... :S

Leaking front diff where the yoke goings in... not sure about the seals by the axels.. doesnt look like it is though...

Clutch clicks when i engage it... (Maybe hitting something... just started to hear it this morning...)

Mods I am planning on doing or started...

Changing the sound system... (going with an alpine deck, meph speakers amped to 75 wrms, and 6.5 driver on seperate amp to go back in stock location)

Small 2 tab light bar from KC Lights on order will be in thursday... Lights will be ordered in a couple months, after i come back from teh northwest terrirtories for 2 months...

And anything else that other people can think of that doesnt cost to much i will consider... As this is my first jeep, i am just kind of going through this as i go...

O and transfer case oil will be changed out tommorow once it stops raining... and front diff once i bring it in to get the seal fixed...

Maybe the clicking from the clutch is the switch for the clutch. I forget what it's called but it makes sure your clutch is depressed before starting the vehicle, I would check that.
