Is it just me or is it it poor etiquette to post a question, and then never come back to the post and thank, or at least acknowledge, all the people who tried to help you? I read alot of posts where this occurs. Someone gave advice then comes back and asks if the OP is still alive. OP BEING RUDE! I am now off my soap box.

Agreed!! Now...I may have done this before, but definitely try not to.

One step further, lately Iíve been coming back to answer my own question if no one else can. Hopefully this will help someone in the future...nothing more frustrating than finding someone who had the same issue as you, but never got an answer.

Join Date and Post Count could provide a clue.
There are many jeep forums and the question may have been shotgunned out.
Perhaps the op is graciously involved in a back and forth elsewhere and now cannot even remember the name of this place.

I agree!! It's rude to not reply if a suggestion works or at least acknowledge a failed repair.
I often ask "Let us know how this works out for you".
I think that might prompt a response. Maybe, maybe not.

Maybe the administrators will make this thread a sticky.

Oh, BTW, Hello Raoul.

Good Luck, L.M.

There probably are many jeep forums, but none as polite and knowledgeable as this one.
If anyone can't remember the name of this place, they're the loser.
This place is effing awesome.

Good Luck, L.M.

I often wonder why someone will post a mod, then when you ask for follow up on how it worked, no reply. Even through PM.

Raoul, Hello, is it me you're looking for?

Raoul,
Sorry for how long it has taken me to reply. My wife and I were driving the Jeep in the beautiful north Georgia mountains.

It's located at the swinging bridge south of Blue Ridge GA. Absolutely Beautiful the whole drive--- highways, back roads and forest roads.

Here's a few more pictures. I may have hijacked my own thread.

That's a good point for us to debate. Can an OP hijack his own thread?

Or, should I have started a new thread?

Good Luck, L.M.

Yes. I did and was put in Suspension for two months.
Nothing but lift kits and shocks.
It's dark down there. You got to hit Page Down three times just to find it.
I howled about it so loud you could here me all the way up in Transmissions.

I reported this thread and Jarhead Al will probably be sent down as soon as he gets back from Georgia.

I've just got in the habit of paying attention to those people that acknowledge my attempt at assistance.
For example;
There's a member on here now that I've attempted to help & each time they've completely ignored me to a point of snubbing me.
So whenever I see them post a new thread (which has happened a couple times recently)
I don't even respond, even though I could've posted/helped with suggestions or info.
Then there's the toxic people (thankfully I haven't seen many here) they come on with an attitude & I usually try to avoid them until their attitude changes (or they leave).
I don't take it personal or anything,
It's just a matter of my time management. If this person doesn't want/need my input, I'll save it for someone who does.
But on average the majority of people here are really nice.

Lol hey @D believe me when I say I know how frustrating some problems can be.
I used to lose my temper & that only made things worse .
(Remember once I had an overheating issue on a vehicle that I just couldn't figure out. Got so frustrated (angry) I grabbed the fan shroud & ripped it off. Long story short, I then had to replace the radiator & shroud . )
So when I see someone's temper flaring, I usually try to chime in with; stay calm & take a break from it .
But I'm ready to see your YJ back on the road buddy.
If I were closer, I'd volunteer to come over & lend a hand (you provide the beer )

I've googled so many old threads in forums here and elsewhere that start out hot then just go cold. So frustrating.

I'm the opposite. I'll keep posting in a thread I started even through I'm the only one so that if anyone else digs it up - they get the full story (hopefully).

Should give me a medal.

Iíve currently got one about my timing chain replacement and now starting trouble thatís over 100 posts. Most of it is just me posting random updates and rambling. Itís probably too long to even be useful at this point.

I'm still following that thread. My timing chain will need to be replaced imminently, so you've got my attention. Keep rambling sir, at least one crazy nut out there is listening!



It is EXTREMELY frustrating to finally dig up a thread that addresses the EXACT problem you're experiencing just to have it drop off into oblivion with no closure.


BTW, those are some great pics!

Thanks for following! Itís frustrating because it was functioning perfectly fine before. Donít worry. Weíll figure it out. Thereís a lot of good people on this forum.

I don't care how many posts it takes to get you up and running.
We're all here to help one another and I'll keep posting until you tell us that the Jeep runs right.
You have to dig until you get to the end of the ditch. Right now we don't know where the end is. We'll keep digging.


You're pretty close to done. Just keep posting. Agalloch07 thinks you should put the rotor back to where it was. Just keep plugging and posting away.

I've been away for a week and will be away next week, so I haven't followed the posts too closely. Let us know how it goes.

Good Luck, L.M.

I agree about the frustration of a thread just stopping. I am new to the forum and everyone has been extremely helpful and friendly so far.
