  2. looking to buy a new jeep- but issues with a leak?

    JK Tech Forum
    Hola all- been looking into joining the Jeep Wrangler family to have a summer car. Make good money but like most millennial - student debt out the ass. Was looking at wranglers under 6K in NJ which was a farce - every single one had tons of issues. I increased my budget to 10K at this point and...
  3. Surface Rust on DV8 Fenders?

    JK General Discussion Forum
    What‘s the most cost-effective way to treat this surface rust? They are only a year old (but were purchased second-hand, so no warranty would apply), and it turns out DV8 doesn’t have very good powdercoating or sealing. What products would you guys use to treat this so it doesn’t come back every...

  7. Help! TJ Expert in Chicago - Safe-T-Caps?

    Illinois Jeep Forum
    Hey all! I have a 2000 Wrangler TJ, and the frame rust is pretty rough. I have been considering installing the Safe-T-Caps as a fix. I don't necessarily need my TJ to last forever because I plan on moving in a year or so, so a frame replacement seems like a bit much. Is there anyone who can...
  8. Repairing a Rusted Door Hinge Pin?

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Hey y'all, more adventures with Persephone, the 2013 Sport I just bought. I had some struggles getting the doors off, but after looking here I did it with a jack and some creativity. The thing is, my upper door hinge pin looks rusted, and the other pins/pin holes seem to have some wear with...
  9. Too Much Rust? Yes that question Again.

    TJ General Discussion Forum
    New to this forum, but without a TJ just yet. Currently have a Scrambler and a family of 4. Just not enough sets for the family so I want to sell it and get a TJ Unlimited. Being from Texas and having a Scrambler from Arizona, I am not used to see much rust on a car that has been reasonably...

  13. Hub Bearing Siezed to Axleshaft

    JK Tech Forum
    I've been trying to tackle a bad u-joint (driver side front axle) and New York winters have been haunting me quite a bit. I managed to pull the axle-shaft out with the hub bearing, but the two seem to be seized together. I've tried bashing, prying, yanking- nothing seems to want to make it...

    JL Wrangler Technical Discussion

    Virginia Jeep Forum
    Hi all, I've got a '94 YJ that's in need of some restoration. Does anyone know of a good shop in the NOVA/middle VA area? I'm willing to travel and leave it somewhere if necessary. The big thing for me is somewhere that can do good bodywork. There's a fair amount of rust that I'd like to be...
  18. Rust on a used Jeep

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Hi all! New around here, I am also sure this has been posted before, but I am curious on what people's opinions are on this used 2012 JKU Arctic. I understand its basically a Sahara with different accents, but it ticks all the boxes of being able to do trails my current Volvo xc70 can't do...

  20. Protect the door hinge after removal?

    JK General Discussion Forum
    I took my doors off for the first time a few days ago. A friend mentioned something to me about doing something to protect the part of the hinge and bushing that is attached to the Jeep itself, since it will be more prone to rust and corrosion as it is exposed to rain. Do you do anything to...
