I was able to find one locally for $10.00, I think I'll give it a try.

What's the tps?

It is the throttle position sensor. It is the black plastic thing the harness plugs into on the side of the TB.

Went mud riding and found out my 4wd is acting kinda sketchy. I didn't see my front left tire spinning much and a buddy said my front right looked like it spun a little but not much power. I can shift into 4lo. Does anyone know a way I could test the 4wd?

I have the same thing mounted on mine but what I realized is that housing on those lights is very weak. One more or less serious hit of a tree branch and they are done. I though about a solution and figured out that if I was to grind off those plastic parts of the housing impersonating mounting points and replace them with a metal bracket bolted on to the housing with a support plate placed inside of the light it will be a hell lot more hit resistant than in original Version bout at HF. They are great lights for the money but were not designed for offroad use. Just streets. Will post pix as I'm dealing with this issue very soon. I put their metal brackets directly under bolts holding the windshield hinge 'coz the width of the swing allows to aim it comfortably directly ahead. If you want to aim them elsewhere you will need extra mounting bracket.

Took the Jeep out to play yesterday and broke the motor. Tore the motor down and fixed the broken timing chain tensioner only to discover number three piston is missing its skirt.
Wondering do I stick a piston in it to get by until I can do a V6 swap or still a used engine it?!? Anyone know if a 2.5 out of a 1997 will swap without too much trouble?!?

Jack stands under all four corners and engage the tcase. Have someone outside tell you if the front wheels turn. If not, could be a vacuum problem on the tcase or solenoid on the CAD of your axle.

Since I couldn't see exactly what was happening to the YJ when the "death wobble" occurred, I asked a buddy to help out. So I got it up to about 25 or 30 and hit a speed bump in his road on purpose...

Turns out, I didn't have "death wobble" per say. The bushings on my front spring eyes are pretty much non-existant at this point. The entire axle was moving back and forth under the front end.

Yea...yea...

Either jack it up like suggested, or pull the rear drive shaft. My front axle was disengaging under torque so jacking it up didn't work for me. The actuator that slides the locking ring over in the front shaft wasn't fully engaging, so under torque it would slip. Made a nasty clunk too. I went with a solid shaft on the passenger side and just blocked off the disconnect. It's not a great solution in regards to fuel mileage FYI.

Why did that effect your MPG? I've been meaning to do this to mine until I upgrade the front end.
