great advice thread

Being a newbie, I recommend you add this thread on waiting to make mods to your recommended reading. I thought the advice was excellent:

It's basically the same for all.Remove one bolt to drain,remove another bolt to fill.

How about a TJ wave thread?

I always refer back this thread. Since the day it started...and it keeps getting better.

I just want to put a feeler out there. They way I learn about large subjects like caring for and upgrading my jeep is by collecting information and writing my own guides. Some get printed out and stuffed in trail bags or other "on the spot" locations. Sample topics relating to Jeeps might include:

Servicing and Maintenance (would include visual aids and tons of notes on how and when to service what and why).
Steering (explains what steering system is on the jeep, the components, their jobs, and upgrade considerations)
Suspension (like steering along with service and maintenance stuff,m wouldn't get into long arms vs short arms but would explain what they are and the hardware differences.)

These serve as a handy quick reference for me and I thought maybe it might serve other, especially newbs like me, on the forum. The only issue I see, it the elitism factor. I'm not an expert, but this is how I learn to be an adequate DIY'er. Of course anything I did put up would be open to suggestion and input from experts on the forum. I don't want to spread myth or fiction so I would definitely be looking for expert feed back. It might also inspire others to undertake the path of learning as a newbie can write this stuff up, then a newbie might not be so intimidated to tackle projects on their own.

Maybe as a series:

TJ 101: Service and Maintenance
TJ 102: Steering and Alignment
TJ 103: Suspension

Do you guys think this is a worthy endeavor and would benefit the forum in general?

Yes. Perhaps this could beef up the wiki?

Thanks everyone for contributing to this thread! As a new TJ owner, this has already saved me TONS of time and taught me a lot about my new vehicle. I'm sure I'll be referring to this thread often in the future.
