my first post so hope this is the right way.just bought my first wrangler and man I went straight into the jeep frying pan!crank sensor failed on way home.Fixed that on day two went mudding at my friends house noticed that my clutch felt funny in reverse day 3.pulled tranny and with the help of a couple friends replaced throwout bearing and reinstalled.went straight back to the mud hole!did some crazy wheeling this thing is a tank!drove to work the next day noticed loud squeeling thought about it read several forums and decided to look at my front wheel bearings.pulled one off went to the auto parts store and bought two.watched youtube for a bit and dove right into replacing them .front axle tube was full of mud !!!!!!back to you tube .ok this is where i wander a bit .who was the moron that invented the stupid plastic dust guardrd that does nothing so went to auto parts store bought 75/90 full synthetic dif fluid and am now preparing to open diff flush out and put back has arb lockers front and back and i was told to let the shop fix the inner seals if need be.I LOVE THIS NEW JEEP AND IT WILL NOT STOP ME FROM ENJOYING A GOOD BOUGHT OF OFFROADING NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
