It seems many people have this issue whether lifted or stock.

I can stop by CTC to show you.
I'm assuming your talking about TJ. This forum is directed to JK, but I'll give you a quick answer. Replace the steering damper with a heavier duty unit. The stock XJ damper will also do the trick.

Thanks for your time!
We have franchise agreements with our dealers that don't allow us to sell parts directly to customers. Even us employees have to buy parts form dealers just like you do!

The Powertrain engineers! Thanks for the cudos.

We worked very closely with Vehicle Development in Moab, UT and the SuperLift off-road park in Little Rock, AR developing the optimum off-road pedal feel. Since the electronic throttle control can be subjective, it really was a team effort.

i was under the assumption that the steering damper was not the cause of the death wobble and it was attributed to other facters...

The half doors will be available soon ( within the next 2 months ), for both the 2 and 4-door. You won't be disappointed. Thank-you.

On TJ the fender flares did fade with the sun. On JK we have switched to a more Ultra Violet stable material. This should significantly help with fading. Painted flares also require the side steps in order to block the tires from kicking up stones and chipping the paint. This one reason side steps are standard on Sahara models.

Grand Cherokee Engine Swap

Can you swap an N code engine into a J code 2002 Grand Cherokee? If so, what other changes would have to be made, i.e. computer, etc.

Thanks

Was on board air ever considererd as a factory option? I think this would appeal to many consumers. I know GM has an air compressor in some of their trucks. Also it I think it would make a nice addition to the Rubicon package, which BTW is an amazing package!

If this is just for the JK I am sorry but heres my questions.

Why was the Cherokee dropped from the jeep line up?

When the Patriot was beign considered, was it targeted to be more of a Cherokee replacement?

Thanks for your time.

Edit: Please skip this question, I skipped over the first page and I just noticed this was for the JK.

Driveline / mirror vibrations

I've an 06 Unlimited - bone stock less than 2k miles. Only two issues where I'd appreciate your input:

1) I understand that the mirrors were redesigned for the 03+ models to address a number of issues. Is it acceptable that they still vibrate from buffetting?

2) When the OD kicks in, a vibration in the driveline is apparent, to the extent that the interior rearview mirror vibrates. This begins at ~45mph up to 70 (don't drive faster than that). Rumor has it that there's a 3rd order harmonic / sympathetic vibration that is going on between the transmission skid and the engine. Can you comment?

That is a Mopar accessory kit that can be added to any JK IIRC. Check www.mopar.com for more details!

Hello and thanks for your time:
Would JEEP ever concider marketing a stripped down Offroad ready version for the Buyers who dont have the skills to modify a JEEP for trail use? I know they are TRAIL RATED , But they are not realy so trail ready, as trail runners would want. A little less car and alot more JEEP.

Family of 5<Myself and 4 girls. Out numbered and dont care that I leave the seat UP.
-OIIIIIO-
