    I know it’s pretty unpopular to stick with the CAD system that comes with the YJs but I really want to keep mine ask stock as I can. I recently replaced the 4WD actuator in my ‘95 and got the 4WD working again but have noticed it takes a while to engage and the light to turn on. It takes...

    4WD dummy light on the dash hasn't worked since I bought the Jeep. 4WD works great, but I'm a dummy, so I would like to have the light. I've done a fair bit of reading on the stock 4WD set up and believe I have followed my wiring to the end of the line (literally). If I follow the wires plugged...

    Hey peeps hope you can help. 2012 JKU, manual transmission, lifted 2.5, When I shift into 4wd I get this consistent knocking sound seemingly coming from the front somewhere. But it only happens when in gear. When I push the clutch in the sound goes away. The 4wd still works and pulls hard it...

    My new 2018 Sport Unlimited JL manual transmission , which is 3 months old, has never been able to shift to 4H from 2h. Basically there is a lot of resistance to the shift to the point I was afraid to break it. It has been at the dealer for more than a week. The dealer confirms it is not working...

    A good friend of mine passed away a couple weeks back. His wife called me over the weekend and is asking for help selling their 1996 Jeep Cherokee. I don't have a whole lot of information, but if you post up your questions, I will definitely try and find out the answers. I am NOT one to...

    So I was having fun in the snow the other day and ended up putting Jeep in a ditch. It wasn't to bad but I still had to get pulled out as it got stuck. I had to put her in 4WL to get it out and now my traction control light will not go off and I can't use my cruise control. It is a 2016 Jeep...

    I accidentally tried to shift into 4wd low while in reverse instead of neutral. I though I was in neutral, but it was really in reverse. I tried to shift it multiple times before I realized it was in reverse. Do you think I did any major damage?

    Hello all, My Jeep is my first 4WD vehicle. As such, I'm not entirely sure how to make the best use of the 4WD with winter coming. Here's what I'm hoping to get some help with: When is it appropriate to use each "gear" of the 4WD? 2H, 4H, N, 4L. Some tell me to run the 4WD occasionally...

    Has anyone ran into the issue of the transfer case cable kinking near the shift lever? I bought a used 2013 JK and noticed that it would not shift out of 2wd. I removed the center console to reveal that the cable was kinked. When the lever is moved back and forth, the cable just folds like an...

    First off, I'd like to say I'm hugely relieved that this forum exists, because I've got a lot to learn. Thanks in advance for all of your patience with the stream of questions that will surely be coming your way. History: '78 Ford Mustang was my first car. Then a 1970 Nova. For almost one...
  13. CJ General Discussion Forum
    Ok, so I've owned a 88YJ that I loved, have a 01TJ as a daily driver, and have really always wanted a CJ, including when I got my YJ, but everything I looked at was in rough safe and needed more work than I had knowledge for at the time. I don't think I can do a 5, because I'm afraid I'll easily...

    Hi, I have a jku sahara 14 manual transmission that i drive a lot but rarely use 4wd. When ever i do use 4wd, which is rarely, it is very rough/jerky when i first give it gas. Is that usual? It will lurk forward or like feel very different? Is this a problem or is this usual?

    Hi, I live in wisconsin and although we get a ton of snow, i barely ever use my 4wd. I have manual transmission by the way and a sahara. I have used 4wd like 5 times and yes even getting the knob into 4wd is a challenge but that isn't my question. My question is that when ever i give it gas...

    I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler 4.0. Has a transfer case drop, 4 inch lift and 35's. Went out to the Jeep this morning. Will not go into any gear. I replaced the clutch about 10K ago with a Luk. I have been hard on it but nothing that has given me problems. When I try to shift into any gear with...

    For obvious reasons, I got a lot of snow driving experience this past week, since I've only had my jeep for 6 months. The only time I got stuck in the snow was when I had the jeep in 4L and my theory is that the snow collected under the jeep and lifted it up so there was no traction. ESCOFF is...

    I have been experiencing a message displayed "ESCOFF" while in 4WD 4L. I don't know if this is normal or not, since I do not go into 4L that often. The owner's manual states that if you continuously see "ESCOFF" when driving above 30 miles an hour, you should get your vehicle serviced...
