Heres a semi good questions for you.

I own a '93 YJ. 4.0 HO model, Auto trans, after market there after.

I bought this jeep stock. It had just gotten a engine & trans rebuild, and was just put backtogether after it had been endoed and layed on it's back for almost 6 hours.

So at start up, the engine made a HORRIBLE knocking sound when it started cold. It would taper down, and still be heard but very lightly. At acceleration, you could not hear it over the engine, but while traveling at a constant speed, and letting off the gas lightly, the knocking sound came back just as loud.

After having a non-jeep mechanic say perhaps it could be a loose rocker that needed to be checked or re torqued.

Anyways, I had that done and nothing was wrong with them.

Talking to another mechanic, he said that this noise could be coming from the transmission. He mentioned a certain part, but I couldnt remember it for the life of me now.

Any suggestions on what this could be?

why did you choose a hybrid dana 44 for the front end of the rubicon over a standard D44?

I saw a couple times where you stated to check the steering damper for issue with front end shimmies (Death Wobble).

Why do so many people seem to have a shimmy issue even on a stock TJ.

I felt it within 18,000 miles of ownership.

Camp Jeep is a great way to get Jeep-specific comments to the right people.

Another possibility is to call the Chrysler Customer Center 1-800-992-1997. They might take your comments or redirect you to a website.

Try telling the dealership to take your comments to the zone rep too.

We like passionate owners who want to make the product better too. Tell anyone who will listen!

So do I...good work on the new JK..!!

We already decided to buy a 2 Door 2008 in Detonator Yellow for my GF.....she likes the way it looks over the 4 door...albeit the 4 door is very cool and unique...and a longer backorder...!

I just learned something new. Thought all the 4.0L's were pretty much the same. I'd be using it for daily driving, not trail riding. Just want something that'll let me keep up with rest of interstate traffic.

Also one more thing. i hate to swear this early in the evening, but i work for a ford dealership while i'm going through school and have heard that several dealers actually do aftermarket warranty work. just wondering if there's any jeep dealers out there that do aftermarket work, and warranty them at the same time?
Hello- Thanks for the for question. The YJ was E coated at the plant. Every year we make improvements in corrision prevention. Today we use traeted matal panels. The best prevention is washing your vehicle often and clean it after trail riding.

Horsepower and torque ratings changed a bit over the years, but nothing major.

More suggestions:

Have a bed liner an option for the wranglers from the factory.

Never use TORX bolts again.

Decide if you want to use metric or English bolts.

Hire me as an Engineer.

Thanks
