Sometimes it can bind because the syncronizers in the tranny are not turning.

Wait tell we make it a 4pager!

Another option:
Go in to the parking spot at an angle pop one wheel over the parking bumper and leave one on the other side. causing the wheels to be locked in.
This also keeps other weak non-AWESOME vech's. from parking close to your Jeep.

Page 3?

I usually put it in first or rev then turn it off and if i'm on an incline i set the brake. And if it still rolls I hold the brake and wait for the wife to hook up the tow strap rofl.

Newbie to Newbie - I feel for you.
Just bought my Jeep last July and had never driven a stick shift before. My ride home was a 120 mi crash coarse.
There are a lot of little tricks that experienced stick drivers don't even think about, but are new discoveries for us newbies.
My parking brake doesn't work so I keep a piece of rubber wedge in the Jeep and put it behind the tire if I park on a slope; if parking flat I just throw it into gear.

Good news to anyone with a faulty parking break, theres a recall to get it fixed as it was prone to disengaging. If the recall hasn't been, taken it in to get it fixed for free!

I can't remember if it was just for a certain year but worth ****ing out

Yes - this is correct.

Tricks Realy people have been driving sticks sense Henry Ford made his first car just turn the da$$ thong off set the e-brake and get out why is this hard? Also my budys drive way has a slight slope to it and he leaned against it and it poped out of gear over his rubber wedge and into the street the rubber wedge did not help they are designed to be used on fairly flat ground if this i sloped at all I would not trust it sense a lot of us here wrench with future jeepers present . (BE SAFE)

we on page 4 of ways to park your jeep yet?
here's another: look for a ditch in the area your needing to be and drive and park in there. it will stay put in the bottom of a ditch and then you get to use your 4x4 to get out.

If you take your jack out from a stock YJ, underneath it you will find a brick, you should wedge this under the tire to be extra sure.

If you add larger tires, you have to make sure to upgrade the brick too.
