I'll add that you shouldn't 100% trust that a new replacement sensor works correctly. I've had them come broken straight out of the box (the cheap auto-parts store ones). Pulled my hair out chasing...

Soft Top Bow Support

98 TJ, don't know what model of soft top I have.

I used to live in Colorado, and I'm pretty sure my A/C compressor would kick on and off regardless of outside temperature. But thanks for the info! If I had wanted precision HVAC control I would have...

I have a '98 TJ with air conditioning, which has the "slider" style HVAC controls. I've noticed that my HVAC "options" are:
- System Off

I run Load Range E tires (Yoko AT-S in 235/85-16) and they're fine. Didn't notice much difference from the C range 30x9.5 BFG ATs I had previously. Just my $0.02.

My TJ runs 235/85-16s (Yoko AT-S) on stock Liberty 16x7 steel rims. Bolt pattern is same as TJ and the offset works great. They fit inside the flares (slightly narrower than stock 30x9.5) so you...

Not necessarily true. You could maintain legal speed on the highway, but might have to stay in 4th or 3rd to do so.

If that does not fix it, try changing your spark plugs. Seriously.

Similar thing happened to me. Turns out my plug gaps were way too wide, and the spark was sometimes jumping across the coil...

I run steel 16s off a Liberty. Have 235/85/16s on them, no lift. The tires are about as wide as the original 30x9.5 it came with, so they fit inside the fenders.

I have gone several times windows out and rain pouring so hard that I needed wipers on the inside of the windshield. No problems.

I'm thinking of cheap or improper coax (50 vs 75 ohm), or bends that mess up the outer shield/braid. But you're right, if none of those are a problem, then measuring SWR before or after feedline...

When you measure SWR try to put the meter in-line as close to the *antenna* as possible. Otherwise the reading could be skewed by the type/quality/routing of the coax feed line.

I believe the 4cyls have some kind of a power steering pressure sensor, which revs the engine a little when PS is being utilized. May be that?

SWR will change across freq range. It will be lowest at one freq (call it "center" freq) and increase in either direction away. You could do some trimming/tuning to get the center to be around ch 20....

I put a 2M whip through the front driver's side fender. The fender and the hood make for a good, uniform ground plane, and I was able to tune it to about 1.3 SWR.

A/C arc welders use a transformer to take the 110 (or more likely, 220v) line down to 30 to 80 volts or so. In...
