I need your input

I want to increase the the FAQ section but need your feedback.
This post will be a sticky for a week. After that I will take the topics that you suggest and use one each week for a "weekly discussion". I will take the input from the discussions to create links in the FAQ section.

This week I need you to post ideas for weekly discussions. From past post it seems people like to discuss:
  • Performance upgrades (computer chips, increased air flow, exhaust, etc.)
  • Lifts - what's available, pros, cons
  • What size tires with how much lift
  • Strange noises from Jeep. What could be the cause and solution.

Please add to this list or feel free to boo hoo any ideas you don't like.

inexpensive mods people have made,
discuss different swaps people have done,( i.e. 249 for a 231, or Al44 for an 8.8 or 9 inch rear.)
Also any fabrications that people have done and would like to pass on
Just a couple ideas

How about a list of common parts that you can only get from the dealer, and a list of parts that most autoparts stores carry. This would help us all to save money.

I agree with the other posts. I would love to see some info on mods for ZJs. Everybody posts mods for the "real" Jeeps but not much for the rest of us. Show me info on engine mods/upgrades, transfer case swaps, lockers, etc. and I would be a happy man.

Lots of good ideas here already. How about a common problem FAQ such as DW, warped rotors, power windows don't work etc. Might save a lot of searching for questions that have been answered many times.
