In diagnosing my death wobble I noticed the chassis mount holes for the upper front control arms were about .090" larger than the bolt so I machined some shoulder washers to take up the slack.



Pardon the surface rust. They were with me in the Jeep last night and we got a bit of rain.

That's where you do the ADE system with the relay. It disables the whole setup. And btw, being in 4-lo does not disable the clutch start.

you can't push start most, if not all, newer cars that have a clutch position switch. the computer will not let the engine fire unless it is getting the signal from the clutch switch. don't know exactly how that works on the Tj, but my guess is it cuts off the fuel.

I had custom steps made for my Jeep for the kids to get into.

2"x6" square tube, ends finished and supports gussetted.

I just got a hi lift and am looking into mounting options - is this the product you have?

I don't know, if the gas milage is affected by the skid, as I have another car for DD (I only made a few dozen miles since I put the skid on). On the other hand I have a LPG-system onboard, so the Jeep burns a propane/butane mix (that is called LPG or Autogas here). Autogas costs less than half of regular gas (0,60 Euro to 1,33 Euro per Liter!), so gas milage is nothing to be worried about at all
The best thing is that I have 50 gallons of Autogas additional to the 19 gallons of regular, so I can make about 500 miles without refueling the Jeep. The dark side of Autogas is that I've lost my backseat and almost all space behind the front seats:

How much did that conversion cost and can you give us details as to where you purchased it please?

thanks.

I purchased the kit at the local Bosch-Service-Center, they do LPG-conversions for more than 10 years now. The complete turn-key conversion (first 1000 ltrs (~260gallons) of LPG were allready included) took ~US$5000, after only 15.000 miles the break even point was reached.
Now I drive my Jeep for half the costs of regular gas
The kit is called "Omegas" by "LandiRenzo" (Italian brand), you can get some infos on www.landi.it
An other high quality LPG kit "VSI" is offered by "Prins" (Dutch brand) www.prins-lpg.com , my brother has this kit in his Hemi powered Chrysler 300C...
