We have two 2000 Sports in the family, both with over 165k, and neither has developed a cracked head. Apparently some have, but I have never read or heard any concrete evidence that a really high...

Maybe you could take it to a frame shop for a professional evaluation if everything else is in good shape and the price is low enough. Looks like it has a Dana 44 at least. A frame expert might...

Thanks for your input, 2JeepsThatRun and Water Dog! I really want to make sure that I at least protect the oil pan and eventually get a better gas tank skid. I really feel like I would prefer the...

Roy626, I will also be re-gearing my front axle whether I add a locker or not. I will be going from 3.07 to 4.10 on both axles since I have the 32RH 3-speed automatic. Since I am not yet sure...

How about some of you other Jeepers besides Jerry that have lockers? Do you find that you often need both the front and rear engaged, or do you feel that a locker in the rear is sufficient most of...

Another vote for 10w-30 dino oil. Both of our 2000 Wrangler Sports are still going strong past 165k with it. Some engines might benefit from synthetic, but I believe the 4.0 and 2.5 in TJs do...

Thanks for the reply, Jerry! You were one of several that I hoped to hear from because I know you do much more extreme wheeling than I would ever do. I almost bought a pair of Dana 44's with lockers...

Locker Question

When I replace or upgrade my rear axle and re-gear, I am now planning on installing an ARB selectable locker. It would be great to install an ARB in the front as well, but they are very expensive. ...

Awesome thread! I have wondered myself if there wasn't a better way to upgrade the vent. Looks like you have it figured out.

There is definitely such a log, and I have a copy of it around here somewhere. You can probably find it by Googling something like Jeep Wrangler TJ changes by model year. It seems like that is how...

Thanks for the info. I am running running 33-inch tires on a 3-1/2" lift, so it looks like I will need the SYE, upper adjustable control arms, and a new drive shaft if I go the 8.8 route. That's...

Thanks for the replies. I hope to add at least a rear locker when the cost estimates come in, but locking both axles will probably be more than I can do right now.

Ford 8.8 Questions

I am considering swapping a Ford 8.8 into my TJ rather than just re-gearing my Dana 35 and adding upgraded axle shafts like I originally planned. I have read the threads and the stickies about this...

All years of the TJ are very good, and since you want an automatic transmission and air conditioning, the 4.0 six is the only real choice. One important thing to consider is that the automatic in...

What size tires do you plan to run? The Dana 35 isn't really good for anything over a 33-inch tire. The 32RH is a strong, reliable transmission, but with no overdrive, 4.10 gears work best for...
