went to the offroad park saturday with the club. brake vacuum line popped off while on the tallest, steepest hill in the park. slid sideways and down about 5 feet. really thought she was going over and my wife and i were done. EVERYONE, IF YOU WHEEL YOUR DUB, PUT CLAMPS ON BOTH ENDS OF THE BRAKE VACUUM LINE FROM MASTER CYLINDER TO THROTTLE BODY! IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE! luckily my buddy's JK was at the top of the hill and he winched me up the rest of the way.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Unfortunately the low side will always be near or at the same PSI as the ambient temperature. Which means the pressure drop from high to low side wont drop the refrigerant temperature as much.

I have been on these forums for several months now but never post anything so i figure i would introduce myself. The names Cameron and i am in the Army currently stationed at Fort Wainwright, AK. I just returned home from a 12 month tour in Afghanistan and picked up a 2000 WJ Limited with 137k for 5700 and so far i am very happy with it. I have been involved with mostly Wranglers but i wanted to be different and do some upgrades to a WJ. So here i am finally posting after reading all 732 pages of this thread, i hope to have some photo's for you shortly.

No when i purchased it they already had been, but they look pretty crappy up close. I think the previous owner used just some household spray paint. He also had four different tire brands on each wheel. Ill be picking up a set of 245/75/16 Goodyear Wrangler Authority's and most likely a Rubicon Express BB or Teraflex BB to hold me off until the IRO coil lift.

Replaced both steering tierods today. Both were shot. Steering is more responsive now. Hopefully better on the highway. After how much force we had to use to get one side of the UCA connected after install of new bushings, I'm almost certain I need adjustable uppers. The driver side UCA was loose as hell. No resistance. So, question is, if the unibody side bushing is bad could it cause a rattling sound?
Hate my jeep..love my jeep. Ugh.
