My new jeep first time working on her
9 Attachment(s)
Well i just bought a new tj she is a 06 rubicon and well she had some stuff going on some rattle noises and well the ex owner was a very nasty owner and i mean nasty in the meaning that he didnt took care of her.
So i decided to make a nice cleaning day.
First because of the rattling noises well it it sounded like rock in the bumpers and well that was the noise xD

Also i notice a weird and loud clunk noise when the front suspension bottoms out and i discover that my front DS hits the exhaust. Please some one can give me an explanation to this problem.
I think i can fix it with a bump stop. Everything in the suspension looks ok.

And well some painting on the brake calipers i always wanted to do this I Know they are gonna get dirty soon but well i like them red. After that i removed the milk jugs to clean and paint them and what do i find? 2kg of rock in all 4 !!!.
Another thing i found tons of dust and rock and dry plants NEXT to the CAT that was a potential issue imagine dry stuff next to the hot cat that could catch on fire xS so i clean all that.

Finally the last problem my fog light didn't work so what i did was check the fuses (all ok) relay (ok) then i discover another aftermarket relay connected to the bat and to a long cable going to my fogs so my diagnostic was a bad connection so i removed all the after market cables and i replace my fog light bulbs with the original 55watts. Then i connected everything to the original system. And they worked =D

Also some sticker to personalize my jeep =D
I love her =D long life jeep long life jeepers

that's awesome. Most people take the bumper end caps AKA milk jugs off anyways. I personally used a JK bumper, modified it to fit on mine.

Not sure on the DS issue, may want to check your motor mounts to maike sure they are intact.
