If its a moisture problem try WD40, it works for distributor caps.

Guys, guys, try to hair him out on this one. Just because his jeep likes to be done up before going out doesn't mean we can't comb through the problems and prim up an answer

i think he wants confirmation. op has already figured out what he needs to do using the lazy caps writeup that he has already posted on. yup, change the caps. one hour and 5 dollars cant go wrong.
