    TJ General Discussion Forum
    Finally had time to swap out my front rusted out fender! Only had hand tools so it took 8 hours, but was so worth it. Off to do the driver side today, hopefully every thing goes smoothly. Anyone else doing some DIY to their Jeeps during al these stay at home orders?

  4. 2002 TJ Secure Trunk/Storage Box

    TJ Build Forum
    Years ago I pulled the nearly useless rear seat from my TJ. My TJ rear bed is very utilitarian but I have always wanted something better and more secure. A week ago I set out to build a fully enclosed trunk that blended in well, used all available space, would support my weight and is very...

  6. 2001 TJ Sport with NV3550 Trans Lost Reverse & Fifth

    TJ Tech Forum
    First post bear with me. So I've got an '01 TJ 4.0 Sport with a NV3550 and Dana 44. I seem to have lost fifth and reverse - I can put the shifter in position, but it feels like neutral and nothing is there. No grinding, no noises whatsoever. My thought is that either the shift fork is busted...
  7. Hardware Help

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Trying to build a floating shelf/instatrunk to put behind the backseat in my two door. Does anyone know how I could recreate the photo with items from Home Depot? I want to create a bracket coming off the roll bar and then lay a piece of plywood across.
  8. Built some things for my 2 door JK

    JK General Discussion Forum
    I wanted to share a few things that I built for my jeep. First is a removable no drilling tailgate shelf. I didn't want to drill into my brand new jeep and didn't want to buy something expensive so I built this shelf. It uses super strong magnets to hang off the back of the tailgate. A rubber...

  10. Sewing in new marine vinyl for rear window

    TJ General Discussion Forum
    My rear window vinyl cracked in cold weather last winter, and I've had it held together with Tenacious Tape since then, but I'm looking into a more permanent fix before going into another winter. Looks like it might be possible to get some tinted 30-40 gauge marine vinyl, marine thread, bias...
  11. Can't See Under the Hood?

    JK Tech Forum
    So I had a constant issue with one of my headlights where the light wouldn't go on unless the plug that connects the headlight to the jeep was in a certain position.

    So I have had this idea for a while and wanted to get some more opinions on it. Essentially my idea is to use a set of rear half doors, some sheet, metal and a custom made softop to make my own version of the DV8 truck conversion kit. I decided that the bestop element doors with the steel...
  14. Build of Butters

    JK Build Forum
    Thought I'd start a build thread here for Butters. I've had him for a while, so I'm just going to hit the highlights and go from there. Here's Butters when he was new to me: Started slow with some body mounted rocker guards: Then added a third seat belt to the back:

  18. Idler Pulley replacement instructions

    JK Tech Forum
    I've had my new (to me) 2012 JK Sahara since 3/18/17. During the time I’ve had my baby, I have come to realize that her previous owner didn’t take care of her the way that I would have. About a week ago, I pulled up to a carwash to remove some grime from a light soft-roading trail and someone...
