Ya so idk what's going on. When it started doing that a couple weeks ago, I took it to an all-jeep shop I go to, and darn jeep started working fine when they tried to duplicate the problem! They couldn't find anything wrong with it!!!! The mechanic thought said I was just looking for an excuse to go see him lol

Seriously.. It was doing it as I was driving on the freeway on my way to the shop... Then I got there and waited like almost 2hours cause he woke up late lol then he got n the car and drove just fine!! Then I asked his other mechanic there to drive it too and nope.. Everything was fine! They checked oil pressure... Spark plugs and cables and idk what else and nothing!

Guys I have a question... So my 4x4 has settings 2H,4H,N, and 4L... I always have it on 2H..... Is that where it's supposed to be? Or on neutral? I'm in LA... So for regular streets/fwy what's the most appropriate setting ? Thx

Always have it in 2H, since you don't need all four for traction on the road. Neutral will not allow you to move :P 4H and 4L you only need offroading or if you need extra traction. Hope this helps

Means its bad ass!!! Lol jk here's what it means....

"Note: Some model 35's are known as Dana 35C's. The C does not stand for c-clip, it stands for custom. This means that it was shipped to Chrysler incomplete from Dana and then Chrysler finishes the build."

I guess that because the 4s got 4.10s and the 6s got 3.07s or 3.73s. That is a good thing!

They are better in the sense that they are lower, beacuse the higher the number of the gear, the lower the gearing is. My 6 had 3.07s when I bought it (as did alot of them) and when i regeared, I couldnt have given my old gears away. You would have plenty of takers for 4.10s. (same gears they put in a stock Rubi) They are still a bit on the high side and the most popular gears are 4.56, 4.88, 5.13 etc. The bigger the tire and the harder you off road = lower gears. Make sense?

Question. I have a smittybilt soft top on my YJ and u guys know how the TJ and newer wranglers have those quick release latches things on the front of top to take it off? Well mine is not like that. On mine I have to loosen the back so that it's loose enough for it to come off the windshield channel....

Do they sale a kit to add this option on? Curious,

Not sure if there is an option, but the stock style has worked wonderful for me.

If you need any suggestions just ask.

Don't be afraid to take your jeep out on a trail run because its stock. Just do a easy trail. I took mine out to pine valley which is easy and did just fine. Mind the fact of me get stuck once because i tried to do a little more than i should have but thats beside the fact haha. Cleghorn would be a nice trail to start off on. Just go with a group so you have people there to help you out on the trail and pull you out if you do ever get stuck, or have a spotter if your feeling uncomfortable in certain spots. Just take it slow and you'll be fine. Now go get that jeep dirty!
