  1. Weird touch up paint

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Looking at a used 2017 JK Sahara with body paint colored fenders. Upon close inspection, it became clear that the front grill was touched up with paint as well as were the fenders right next to the grill. There are no accidents on the carfax of the car, but this is concerning because it was...
  2. Rocker Beyond Repair? Please help me save me LJ!

    TJ Tech Forum
    Hello everyone, I have an 04 LJ that has been my ride or die for the last 8 years. Somewhere around 4 years ago, I noticed the stock diamond plating on my rockers were starting to show some rust on the outside and that some rust-colored water was coming from behind them. I pulled the plates...

    JK Tech Forum
    Hello, I have a 2014 JK and I recently ran into the problem that I cannot control my interior lights from the stick on the driving column. I can turn on my headlights, but the rotating switch won't let me adjust brightness and my gauge lights stay at max. Beyond this, I get surges of...

  6. Cracked Transmission Inlet - repair or despair?

    YJ Tech Forum
    I was replacing tranny fluid in my 1990 YJ 4.2 and somehow cracked the inlet port of the transmission. Really, I broke off the top half of the female inlet. There's enough inlet left to hold the plug, and the plug enters the case (but only just a bit, like maybe 2-3 mm). I question whether...

  12. Tire Cover Repair

    JL Wrangler General Discussion
    I have figured out a simple temporary fix for tire covers that either tear, rip or start to crack. Supplies I use are: Window Screen, Black Ahhesive Sealant, wax paper or used candy/cracker wrapper. This almost like patching bike tire tubes. Cut out a patch using the window screen. Place the...

    JK General Discussion Forum
    I have had my Jeep for a little under a year now, it is a 2014 JK, and when I purchased it there was what seemed to be a 2-2.5" lift. Since the purchase the only addition I have made is adding my tires and wheels and front bumper. The "lift" was determined to be most likely a 2.5" Rough Country...

    Hello, Over the weekend I was given a free hardtop from a CJ-7 that had been in a field for a number of years (unsure how long). It's in the kind of shape you would expect but honestly, it's not too bad. It was filthy, but I was able to clean it up pretty well. After a pretty long time...

  18. 95 Sahara Oil Pan Question

    YJ Tech Forum
    Hey there, So I can't get my oil plug out, the threads themselves are stripped. Dropped it off at a mechanic I trust, and he hasn't been able to remove it either, without potentially damaging the oil pan. The trick here is, he's not sure (and neither am I) which of the two oil pans for that...
  19. Not the usual road salt damage

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Everyone knows road salt is hard on all parts of a vehicle but what the hell is this? The previous owner dropped the door when putting it back on and damaged the door as well as the body. The first photo show the repair after painting. Color matching 9 years of fade is never easy but it's...
