I'm pretty sure all of the hard tops are the same size, the only difference I know of is the vents. On the older version, the vents are on the back pillars on the top, and the newer version the...

I agree, fix it up and clean it up or you cut your potential buyers by 90%. You will get nothing but low-balling bargain hunters with a broken jeep.
I can just imagine trying to explain to my...

Are you driving in 5th gear on the highway? If so, I would start ignoring 5th gear and treat it like a 4 speed until you regear. You should be able to go over 75 mph in 4th with the rpms a little...

You can adjust the steering box and it might buy you a little time before you have to replace it. There's an adjusting screw with a lock nut on top of the box, behind the front bumper. Just don't...

I'm pretty sure that's normal because both of my daughters jeeps do the same thing.

Is that brake dragging at all? I would check the knuckles that the brake pads slide on. They can get a groove worn in them and cause the brakes to stick or twist a little and drag.

That LJ for $14k with 84,000 miles looks promising. I'm not a big fan of the green either, but you would probably never see another jeep that looks like yours!

I would be worried about what you would get if it was stolen or totaled in a wreck. The insurance company won't give you anywhere near 18k for it.
I know jeeps hold their value, but you could...

I think the -30 is the offset. I don't remember how that relates to backspacing, but almost all aftermarket 15x8 rims have between 4.25" and 3.75" of backspacing. I always assumed that is so they...

I know, you always worry about the worst things it could be. It's a great feeling when you hook up a loose hose and everything is good again!

Everything should have reset after the new battery was installed. You might have other problems, either a vacuum leak or a very dirty IAC on the throttle body. I would get a can of throttle body...

The nutsert has rusted enough inside the frame so the top part of the nutsert has broken off and is rusted to the bolt and they both spin together. I just hammered the prybar between the frame and...

Was the battery gauge read in the red for overcharge or undercharge?
I would start with the battery since a bad battery or bad connections can do all kinds of weird things to these engines. Give...

Be sure and use the original style bolts because they are shaped to fit the skid plate holes. On the plus side that is a nice rust free frame!

The 4.0l PS pump has the reservoir built in and the 2.5l is an external tank so you would at least have to use the whole pump, but I'm not sure if it will work on the 2.5 or not. I'm always very...

You might be talking about the parking brake strut. Rock auto sells them, you will also need the yellow spring that goes on one end.

That sounds more like death-wobble starting. With bump steer the jeep will steer one way when the suspension compresses, and the opposite way when the suspension expands. So each bump would only...

That's normal, in fact they usually have a wider range than that. At idle you usually see between 10 and 30, and it increases with engine rpms up to 40 or 50.

That looks like the right size. I measured my old canyons and it looks like the hole in the center of the rim is 2.25" but I don't see any measurements on the Ebay listing.

I would still worry about running 225║ at idle. The fastest way to crack that 331 head is overheating. The needle should be pointing straight up, through the 1 in 210. What does the temp gauge...

If you have a solid enough frame to be able to replace the stripped nutserts then it doesn't sound like you have to rush into frame repair yet. I would say clean up the rust and paint the frame area...
