Just ordered my Bilsteins and IRO adjustable trackbar from Nick, Kolak, woohoo!! Now, just have to figure out this intermittent sluggish starting issue.

I keeped hearing what I though was the tape deck mech making noise. Replaced radio with the RB1, still hear the noise, might have to check that out.

Hmm ill have to take a look. Do you have a link?

Nice, Trx. All you need to do now is throw in some black Laredo headlights. Our WJ's are twins separated at birth.

Replaced the crankcase elbow. Old on left and new installed. Thanks to tips found here on the forum it was literally a 5 min job; no broken pieces or cursing involved. Just one question, why is the grommet more than the elbow?

Still not running a front drive shaft, and won't until snow or ice is forecasted.

Pulled a trailer+motorcycle a couple hundred miles today and, while going over uneven ground, noticed there is a slight popping sound coming from the rear. I'm guessing it's the shock mounts.

Oh ya? Im looking at a set of smoked halos, but I really want ccfl, and the ones I like arwnt ccfl. Is there a way to convert that?

Also ive noticed a hole in my exhaust, so im looking for a cat back, I want something that won't cost a ton, but will give me an increase in performance and something that sounds aggressive but not obnoxious. Ive never bought an exhaust so this is new to me. Any opinions?

I cannot program mine to my new house! My old house was fine. I bought a new top of the line garage door opener from Lowes and it will not program! How did you do yours?

Look into HID retrofitting. It's becoming more popular, there are a couple members on here who have done it and can share their knowledge.
And as far as exhaust you should contact Kolak.

I had the same issue when we first moved in. Worked at old, not at new. Found out the garage door opener is a rolling code which required 2 extra steps. I went here http://www.wjjeeps.com/homelink.htm and followed all 6 steps and boom it worked. Good luck!

Yeah, mine is the same and I followed this tutorial and still no luck. Maybe my garage door opener won't work with my WJ...?
