Fixed my death wobble today! Had an ex employee from rubicon say my track bar was fine and I needed more caster. Then another mechanic say to throw a steering stabilizer on it.

Finally decided I was going to step up from my laziness and check things out myself. Holy crap! The track bar I could shake with my hand. The bolt head had about a centimeter gap from the plate on the axle bracket. The frame bracket was almost just as loose. I had someone turn the wheel and the hole track bar just jiggled back and forth in there. Torqued it to specs and voila. Can't believe the guy told me my track bar was fine.

That's why I'm the only one that touches my vehicles when they need repaired.

Yeah. I was talking to him and said "I'm pretty sure my track bar is loose or I need new bushings". Then he got under and looked and said I was wrong. Learned my lesson their, trust only myself with my car (and of course some people here on the forum )

But I know Im never going to put a muffler back on it. It just sounds to damn good. Right now it just dumps under the car, but I will be extending the stock tail pipe to fit the gap of the muffler. That should raise back pressure a little bit.



Ive never really heard on any car that cutting the muffler off would burn up the valves. But if there is some proof or something then I would believe it!
i have a 4.0L and cut it off about 9 months ago have never had a problem am doing duals soon not true duals obviously. but about 3 months ago i started it up and had a horrible knock for about 5 seconds then it went away never happened sense. dont know if i lost oil pressure fpr a few or what cuz my oil pressure sensor was shot at the time lol oops

I'm hoping... I just took off my Geolanders... They were a 40k mile tire, I had 50k miles and 7/32 of tread left! I'm hoping these are going to be my last set of tires... I did notice they sing a little more than the Geolanders at highway speed

I debadged it back when I first bought the JEEP about 2 years ago because a lot of them were fading. Ordered a new hood emblem last night as STAGE 1 of rebadging it.
