I grew up next door to Texas and have been using a firearm of some sort since I was in the third grade. CA or not, wanna come messing around with my personal property against my wishes, you do so at the extreme risk of perforation of some sort, but thanks for the stereotype.

Also thanks for missing my oh so obvious point which was not about his protecting his personal property, but his highly misinformed methodology. A 12v car battery simply won't shock you and you can prove it by touching both terminals at the same time. Only the ignorant think that can work. If you would like to get a capacitor or coil and hook it up to the battery to drive the voltage up high enough to do some good, that will work, but otherwise, not so much.

All you need to do is make sure some lady out for a stroll with her munchkins doesn't lose control of them long enough to let them enjoy your vandal deterrent. That would be a really crappy way to lose your rig.

1) Did a half hour break in for my rebuilt 4.0L. Took me two weeks to figure out my timing issue!
2) Put insurance on it.

Recieved new skid plate nutserts from mr.blaine... Gonna spend tomorrow repairing the two that are spinning on Mr.0IIIIIII0's TJ.

Yay for me.

If that goes well, I may be cutting the stock fenders down in to flatties. Been going back and forth on that.

I can hold the knob on the shaft to select different modes, but the knob itself won't sit flush inside the opening enough to stay on. Did I do something silly wrong? You can only install the switch one way.

Any input on why it's STILL only blowing through the defrosters would be absolutely fantastic. Temp's have been in the low 20's and 30's at night here already, and will surely get much colder as we get into the winter. This is something I can't put off any longer. I'm going to look for an entire new non-a/c HVAC unit in the meantime.

Also, I'm pretty sure I've found why speed 4 has never worked. The plug on the inside of the speed switch is clearly melted. I guess I'll add that to the ever growing list of things I need just to make my TJ...normal.
When mine did that there was s vacuum leak under the hood right by the fire wall.

Exactly what I had in mind. I'd like to use some 2" LED parking/turn lights I found on amazon, just realized I never got around to ordering them so I might have to push this project off for a little bit. Sent from my TJ

Just curious, how much lift/tire are you running? Looks to be about the same as me.

Now I'm having serious starter issues... but I can't seem to find any information about anyone having a similar issue. I've heard the typical click and/or grinding noises when dealing with a starter issue, but mine is drastically different. It makes a noise that's really hard to describe. I guess it sounds like something is spinning and not catching, but there's no clicking. It's almost an electrical noise.

My battery is new, and I'm certain it's not an issue with my battery.

I don't have a multimeter or anything, but has anyone heard this scenario before? Is it safe to assume it's an issue with the starter and that I'm not going to be wasting my money if I pick one up and install? Never done a starter in a TJ. Easy to access?

The starter is super easy to change out on the TJ. I did mine. Its like a 15 minute job if that. I replaced my dead starter with an autozone one and have had no problems yet (knock on wood.) They come with a warranty. And if it doesn't fix your problem, then just bring it back and get your money back. The guys at my local store actually told me that I could do that.

Ive had that noise. I was trying to clean all the oil out of my engine after my rollover.

I was cranking the engine with the spark plugs pulled, distributer disconnected, and the fuel pump off.

My bets are somethings up with your distributer... But im no genius when it comes to engine trouble. Good luck!

Thanks guys!

The reason why I'm betting on a starter issue is because it used to do it every once in a while when it was cold.. Now it's getting to be more an more of an issue to where I almost can't get it to start anymore. I don't know anything about distributors.
