Well I had a good time hanging out at Jeff's (although not planned). I got a couple things fixed on my Jeep and helped Jeff and the guys install fender flares on Rik's Jeep

Discovered my new favorite place in the world: Marshall's Hardware. How can you not love a place with four foot long zip ties

Spent the better portion of the day at Jeffs, not quite a run but good company made the day worthwhile as we pondered important questions like how many people does it take to install fender flares

So here is how my Friday night into Saturday morning played out:

Friday afternoon I was offered a free 4.0HO out of a '98 TJ with everything, and I mean everything, included. The only catch was I needed to help pull the motor from the donor, help install the new one and take some of the extra TJ stuff that was sitting in storage. The donor motor runs like a champ and was rebuilt just 30k miles ago.

I now have a pretty big list of TJ stuff that I don't have a whole lot of use for. I have:
  1. A steering column
  2. An entire dash
  3. steering box
  4. heater core
  5. heater blower
  6. front marker lights
  7. side marker lights
  8. etc, etc

If you think you can use something lemme know!

The donor TJ




My "New" 4.0


Computer and Wiring Harness



Exhaust with all sensors


Evap Canister


Misc stuff!

Nope, but it will fit a 1995 Buick Roadmaster or Chev Impala

Worth keeping for a trail spare tho

I think that Rikrotorhead is looking for TJ side markers.



What is Daniel going to install in the Jeep...I'm imagining a V8.

Jason, sent you a PM about the exhaust. I really only need the pipe from the cat forward, but I'll take it all if you want to get rid of it.

PS, congrats on the sweet deal.

Rubicon trail Issues

Found this thread.. I know its a bit late but it is something that we all need to track


On Thursday, April 23rd the California Water Quality Control Board is having a public hearing in Rancho Cordova to finalize their decision on closing the Rubicon Trail.

We are asking all NORA supporters within driving distance of Sacramento to attend this important public hearing. Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts need to show the Water Board the overwhelming public support to keep the Rubicon Trail open year-round. NORA’s goal is to have over (500) OHV enthusiasts present at this public hearing.

This is serious. On April 1st the United States Forest Service issued a 2-year temporary closure of the very popular Tellico OHV Area in North Carolina. Help Rubicon from turning into a Tellico type situation, by showing your support on April 23rd.

Assemblyman Ted Gaines and a representative from Congressman Tom McClintock’s office will be in attendance. Local Sacramento news media will also be covering this historic event.

Please call or email Erin Lara, Member Services Director at NORA to let her know if you are able to attend as we are trying to obtain a head count. She can be reached at (530) 333-1487, ext. 1 or info@nora-usa.com.

MEETING PLACE AND TIME:

LOCATION – 11020 Sun Center Drive # 200; Rancho Cordova, CA 95670
DATE & TIME – Thursday, April 23rd @ 12:30 PM

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD…. EMAIL, CALL AND TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!!!

Had a good weekend wheelin' and camping. My buddy and I went out to Borrego Springs on Friday - checked out a lot of campsites on the way just to see what they were all about...and we ended up going up Coyote Canyon and Campingout there at the end of Sheep's Canyon. Was a little windy but not too bad...enjoyed it up there.

We came down into Borrego Springs again late the next morning so I could catch that phone call (they gave me a window of 1pm-3pm and called at 2:58pm of course)...so we had a burger at Carlee's while we were there. We had seen the high wind advisory for Saturday so we packed up the camp before leaving...and thought we might check out a different place to camp Saturday night. We cruised down to see the JustRuns camp - talked to Roger a bit....they camp on the flat open area just past the Calcite mine and the big tower....so they were in for some really bad wind...we passed on that. Went and did the Calcite Mine trail while we were there....then decided to go visit Brandon and family at the Tamarisk Grove camp....said hi and chatted for a bit...then we went and looked at Yaqui and then started over to Blaire Valley...wind was picking up and the temperature was dropping and we were losing the last of the daylight (and we realized we forgot to get more firewood like we had planned) so we decided screw it, let's just head on home....we got a pie in Julian and headed back. Fun weekend though!

Jeep started acting up on drive home...I guess it wanted to go camping some more...but we got it home. I was getting the whole random loss of power, backfires, CELs that were the typical 21/42 codes - O2 sensors...etc... I've had it checked a few times already, O2 sensors cleaned and all...and nobody ever finds a problem. Last night was the worst I have seen it....maybe because we were driving all over most of the day.... My buddy thought it is the PCM but I think it is something else feeding the computer causing it to react. There is another thread on JF where people have experienced the exact same thing and I have some ideas on what to check next - I am going to have them look at the plugs/wires (I replaced these a couple of years ago so should be fine), then MAP Sensor (Manifold Absolute Pressure), IAC (Idle Air Control), Throttle Position Sensor, Coolant Temp Sensor or even the Crankcase Position Sensor next (and the O2 sensors again of course - I hear they can be pretty sensitive and go bad even if I have replaced or cleaned them recently). After that if it still does it... I can look at fuel pump/sender/filter replacement. Does that sound about right to you guys? Any place (trusted mechanic, stealership, etc) that you would recommend I have check this stuff for me and do any work needed? I usually have ORW check this stuff out for me when I have it in there for other stuff, but I don't think this is really their cup of tea...

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Edit: I just read some more and see that it could be something as simple as a clockspring problem...because a lot of the 5v circuits are all interconnected. For example, the clockspring is on the same 5v circuit with the TPS. If it starts shorting, it can spike the circuit and cause the TPS to read a high voltage.

"A lot rides on the sensor circuit.

Sensors that share the PCM +5V reference signal:
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor
Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor
Throttle Position (TP) Sensor

Sensors/Components that share the PCM reference signal return:
Battery Temperature Sensor
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor
Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor
Throttle Position (TP) Sensor
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor
Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor
Engine Oil Pressure Sensor
Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor
Downstream Heated Oxygen Sensor
Fuel Pump Module
Clockspring"

At least I have a starting place to tell them to look at...

Here are a couple of related threads that I found for future reference (mine or anyone else's!):

Scott if you want to come to Poway we can dig into it. I've got a nice scanner, plenty of tools and a whole lotta time. Let me know!
