  1. JL Technical Discussion
    The title says it all. Is it bad to brake-boost your wrangler JL for added acceleration when initially taking off? What happens to the torque converter when doing this? Can it warp your brakes? Does it cause transmission/axle wear prematurely? And lastly, is it responsible?

    Hello all, I've just taken delivery of my JLU with the tow package (as after market wiring is a pain and costly). Jeep specify a class II hitch (on the order and confirmation). Every web site refers to as Class II having a 1 1/4" hitch so I ordered a 2" hitch to replace it but now I've gone to...

    I came across this yesterday. For less than $30, I decided to buy it. Software is free, and $4.95 for the Pro version. Sensor on Amazon is $22. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NLQAHS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 does anybody have a PID file for a Jeep JK...
  5. YJ Technical Discussion
    Yesterday I went off-roading at Ka'ena Point and demanded quite a bit from my YJ . 3 times during the trip the engine lost power/torque. Each time after feathering the gas with no improvement, I turned the engine off, started it up and the problem went away. Gas/Coolant/Oil pressure/Volts all...

    Hey Guys, I really need some help here. I was driving around all day doing errands and what not, on my way home, came to a set of lights and stopped. Then went to take off and the TJ just started shuddering like the gearbox couldn't engage and produce power down the drive shaft. It took like a...

    hey guys, looking to see if it was possible or if anyone has found an Android app that could pull the EVIC data via a bluetooth OBD-II dongle. Trying to get info like TPMS, MPG, etc. I purchased an Android based head unit and running the Torque app which rocks but it's still missing some things...
  10. YJ Technical Discussion
    Next year I will be using my '91 YJ with 34"s on it to tow a small teardrop camper. I am currently rebuilding my spare 4.0 to replace the stock engine. Since I already have it apart I thought it would be a good time to upgrade wherever possible. I have read many posts about stroking the 4.0...

    I've read a lot here but I want to make sure I am clear before I pull the trigger on a regear. I have a 97 TJ 4 cy. Went form stock tires to 33's. I realize it's only a 4 cy but I'd like to keep up in city traffic, not to mention stop pissing off the Harley guys behind me on those uphill two...
  12. TJ Technical Discussion
    Hi all, I have finally completed my first project on my 2000 Wrangler. I got the sway bar links removed, and replaced! I am feeling pretty good about it, but I have read basically every thread about them, and everyone seems to have had trouble torquing the top nut down. I did not hear any...
  13. TJ Technical Discussion
    Hello everyone. Just need to find out if it's normal. If I accelerate in first and turn driver just a hair I can get the driver front tire to lift everytime. I feel it when the tire comes back down to the pavement. I know it's just the front because I don't slip in the rear. It also happens...

    My LJ came with American Racing 16" rims. I think they're 5inch back spacing. I'd like to get some 1.25" or 1.5" wheel spacers. 1) Would you recommend just the 1.25"? 2) I don't really want to spend $200 on spacers. I see some go for like $129 for 4, is there any brands that you recommend, or...

    I just plugged in my Bluetooth OBD2 link to the jeep for the first time. On all my past Ford vehicles, the power on the OBD2 port was switched with the ignition. So when you turn the car off, the Bluetooth adapter turned off. It seems on the Jeep, it has power constantly on. Even when I turn...

    Hello, everyone! I have a quick question regarding the Torque app for Android. I have been using the app and adapter combo for a while - at least three years - for monitoring minor things on my previous vehicle (a Caliber), but I have been curious if there was a way for Torque to report what...
  17. JK General Discussion
    I'm starting to build up my 2011 JKU now that I've thoroughly got the new car smell out of it. I just ordered some 33" Duratracs on 15" MB Razor wheels from DTD and plan on installing a lift in the next 1-5 months. I don't have a torque wrench, and I've always just shot from the hip when it...
  18. YJ Technical Discussion
    Hi guys, I bought a 94 Wrangler one year ago and have spent that time working on most everything. I finally bought new tires (31x10.5x15") and wheels (15"x9"), which Discount Tire told me would not rub. Naturally, they did, but not on the highway, only when we go 4-wheeling in the mountains. So...
