I had 31's on a 1997 2.4L TJ SE with 4.11 gears, it was tolerable. For 33's you want to go to 4.56's or 4.88's. The 4.56's would return you to stock gearing and offer the best gas mileage. The...

Seriously, DON'T DO THIS. If you had a stock LJ it would be barely controllable (3500lb tow limit). If you had a stock TJ you would have a 2000lb tow limit, but I would personally degrade the tow...

The bad thing about replacing a radiator in the Winter or Spring is that you will have NO CLUE as to why the Jeep overheats on hot Summer days. The facts are that aluminum cores cool better than...

Tire balance is the likely problem. To confirm this, have the tires re-balanced (frequently the shop will do so for free if you bought the tires there). If the problem stops or if the speed it...

With a stock Rubicon locker and moderate driving skill, 33's last forever, 37's break pretty quick, and 35's are somewhere in between.

The engine year thing is a Federal law, so it's definitely illegal. That would only matter if you want to register in a state that requires an emissions test, now or later. Your Jeep will fail the...

I have had the adjustable JKS disconnects installed on my 2003 Rubicon since 2004. They are NOT at the lowest position, I adjusted them until the swaybar was level, with my 2.5" OME lift.

That's definately NOT his problem. If he moved the body UP from the frame, the fan would hit the bottom of the shroud. In his case, the engine is tilted back at the engine mounts, so the fan goes...

There is a lot less difference between a 2.5L and a 4.0L on the trail in low range. It is on the highway and climbing hills at speed on roads where the 2.5L is at a disadvantage.
