That's because we have good moderators.

I see so how would you prevent the shackle from major inverse

Went wheeling y-day.
My heap broke down!
Was able to get it running and home, but damm, broke down on the trail...

It was the TPS. I don't even know what the blank it even does...
We had a jeep mechanic with us in the group, thankfully, or I'd a been in a spot as I had no clue...

This is from the bumper cam y-day, crossing the Middle St Vrain river.
The water was just at waist deep(rocker slider deep).

Hello to all of the YJ owners!!

I didn't see a welcome thread so I figure I'd post where I would most likely be spending most of my time. I am brand new to Jeeps, just bought my first one. A '90 Wrangler. Hopefully this will be a fun experience for me. The other guys at the firehouse with Jeeps told me this was the place to go for the best info. Just started the tear-down yesterday, got all of the rust out and ordered my replacement panels. Got the motor running well. Overall, even tho I'm not going to be driving it for a while I am already happy about having a Jeep. I do have one question to open with. Just how true is the statement being told to me that Jeep stands for "(J)ust (E)mpty (E)very (P)ocket"? Anyway, I hope for a fun journey.

You will become familiar with all the available websites for parts and term brown santa is going to be your best friend (UPS). My Fed-Ex driver finally saw the Jeep and remembers every delivery. Welcome and have a great time with your build. If you do something neat take a lot of pics and share.

I finally figured out how to post up some pics in the gallery. These are just after I bought it, as-is, took it to the firehouse and started cleaning it up. When changing out the front brakes, I found out the hub bearings are bad. Now the fun begins!!! Also pulling the sport cage and putting in the later gen "family cage".
