new guy here from Raleigh, NC

Hey guys, newbie here. I picked it last week..


99 Jeep Wrangler TJ, 2.5L I4, Intense Blue, fresh motor (less than 500 miles on it), 76k on body, 33" bfgoodrich all-terrains. new exhaust, bestop, PIAA lights, detroit locker front and back, 3.5" suspension and body lift.


full size pic: Lauren's new jeep! on Twitpic

honestly, I don't know the first thing about Jeeps (I am a chevy guy) other than what I have been reading online and on jeep forums the past week or two. im trying to find out more about my detriot lockers, and need to do some basic work (brake lines replaced, fuel pump issue? (still havent diagnosed it), some under the hood cleanup) and he also gave me a new steering stabilizer when i bought it that I need to install. I guess I will learn as I go..


Good to be here! I wonder if the guy I bought it from was on this forum at all?

Why new motor with only 76,000 on the clock? Bring it to Louisville, we may or may not get it running, but we sure can have fun trying Do you have pressure at the fuel rail?

the guy i bought it from had a turbo motor on it, then swapped out a fresh motor when he sold it.

yea ive got fuel pressure at the rail. he said it had a bad fuel pump when i bought it. although, if i unplug the MAP and IAC, the car runs. if I plug them up, the car only lasts a few minutes or wont start after being ran.

nah i dont believe he did. pretty sure its stock. i havent tested to get pressure, just unplugged it at the rail and started the car to make sure there was some coming out. but ive driven the car around for about 30 minutes with no issues as long as those sensors are unplugged
