I think my 4spd Auto Linkage Mod should make the list. I get constant emails about it and it seems to help a lot of people that have that OEM bushing fall apart on them.

I knew that. I was saying it should be a stand alone sticky.

Hey - Thanks for this discussion thread. I am brand new to the Jeep community and this was the first forum discussion I read after registering. I am so glad I did also. I almost made myself into a dumb*$$ and starting shooting off questions. Nevertheless, thanks for the Boot Camp, helped me out a ton in finding answers quickly.

I thought this would be a worthy addition to this thread.

This is one of the better newbie posts I've read on this forum, and the new folks asking for help should follow this model.

Notice the key points:
  • first off, the punctuation and sentence structure is easy to read and understand.
  • right away, the poster identifies he/she is not skilled in automotive repair, and lists the year, engine, trans and model - all the relevant information needed to answer the specific question which follows.
  • the poster has already performed research and identified the name and location of the broken part, and exactly what the function is.
  • the poster even provides a picture of the damaged part.
  • the poster's questions are formatted in bullet form, in a direct manner which are short and easy to answer.

I know this thread started in 2009, but some of the links are dead. I have had this bookmarked on my computer for a few years now, great information.
