I'm probably going to go with the Lange Original II. They mount to the windshield frame, not the door.

Duane2171 Hi Guys. I'm new to YJs and this site, but not new to Jeeps I've owned 7 J10s and 4 CJs over the years. Even had a Grand Wagoneer and I just bought an 01 Grand Cherokee (Can you see a pattern here? lol) Alos been into the AMC scene for 30+ years. I also just bought my first YJ. Its a 95 Wrangler Sahara with the 6 and a 5 spd. Has its share of rust and I need to replace the windshield frame, but it runs and drives great!! Totally stock btw. Great site!!

Are the numbers on the shift knob upside down? Or just the pattern? Could you post a pic? Any chance the transfer case shifter has the wrong shift knob on it?

Transfer cases on YJ's typically have the pattern pictured below.

Should the transfer case be in 5th? Neutral?
Does the transfer case have two shifters? Might be an atlas transfer case.

mikes70 Hi, I'm new to this forum not sure where to post questions. Anyway, I have a 4cyl YJ and a 6 cyl YJ. I swapped the motor's as the body of the 6cyl was done. I changed the wire harness under the hood but not under the dash. When I turn the key to the one position I get power but when trying to start it I get nothing. When I step on the break the starter cylinoid clicks. The 6cyl has abs and ac but do not want them in the 4cyl do I need to change the wire harness under the dash? Not sure why I'm having this problem. ANYONE????

Decoy_58 I like this Could you post something about intake/exhaust especially how the gaskets go on Mine came with a big metal with fiber back covers all ports coming out of head
Also there was a shorter blue gasket that cover only the intake ports Mine is a 4.2 with carburater

Mine has carpet, no liner and no padding, and its all factory inside except my console and rear seat removed to install sub box.. if your carpet has backing on it, plus the Rhino liner, it should be just fine.

Your quite welcome. in 33 years of working on cars, drag cars, Jeeps and trucks, I have learned a lot of tricks from a lot of good people. To me, it is always good to pass it on when possible. That paraffin wax trick is old one, but a trick most do not know about. It will even remove bolts easily from aluminum that are completely frozen up.

The catalytic converter is directly under the passengers side floor. It may have a missing heat shield or a plugged catalytic converter. If it is sluggish under throttle or pinging under hard acceleration, it is prob. a plugged converter. They will also smell funny too. Some fuel additives(such as SeaFoam) can cause a converter to plug up real quick, get hot, and cause issues with the motor due to no exhaust escaping. Since it is an 89' model, I would say the converter needs replaced or removed(if you do not have to Emission Check it to get your license plates).

I just had this same issue with not being able to remove the doors from my YJ. Take the nut off the top hinge, then liberally spray PB Blaster penetrating oil all over the top of the hinge and any where you can get spray into the hinge bolt. Then while trying to lift the door, move the door back and forth on the hinge. the hinge will eventually start to work loose and lift. Once removed, sand down the hinge bolt and run a wire brush down through the hinge hole. Then apply anti-seize to prevent the issue in the future. My doors now remove very easily.

If it fails to come out, take off the cover and put some flame on it. You will have to repaint at that time.
Anytime you get a frozen bolt or plug like that, heat the area around the plug, then apply parafin wax(Cooking wax). The heat willl pull the parafin wax through the threads making it simple to remove.
