New to the JK Nation : have a few questions

Mine's a 2008 Sahara. Does anyone elses' make an almost boiling sound, or fluid running sound behind bottom of the center dash?

Sounds like possibly oil to me??? My bro in law has a 2008 rubi and he never noticed his do that

Also i want to pull off my Sahara stickers anyone attempt that and if so how hard or what will help?

I pulled off dealer stickers with my finger nail, but assumed these would be harder

Bubbling behind the dash sounds like it could be something to do with the heater core. Air in the cooling system perhaps? I'd try running it with the radiator cap off and heater on to try and burp it.

Sorry i shouldve said its usually only when i first start it. If it has been off for a short time and then restarted, it wont happen. So not a normal thing???

No worries man. I'd just take off the cap, start it up and turn on the heat. Here's a video where a guy goes through it. Looks like he jacks up the front a bit to help the air come out.

Easy to take off the stickers. I use an automotive eraser. It connect to our drill. Takes them right off.

DON'T remove stickers with anything attached to a DRILL...GEEEZ

Simple steps:

Thoroughly clean the surface

Take a hair dryer and heat the sticker for 2 minutes

Peal back an edge of the sticker and pull the rest off at a downward angle

Take "goo-be-gone" or rubber cement thinner to remove any residue

You're done!

Its an eraser. Automotive dealer and collision companies use them all the time.

Hey thanks for the info guys. I appreciate both options but I think I will try the hair dryer first. First of all free secondly sounds safer. Lol

Other guys: thanks for the info and link.

I will try all of this tomorrow, weather permitting and post my results.

Anything else major I should know from those of you that own an 08 like me?

Happy Saint Patty's Day!!!!

Nobody really mentioned this on the radiator cap, make sure the engine is cold before you attempt to take the cap off. Common sense but weirder things have happened.

LOL!!!!!!

Try to keep the hair dryer moving or you can burn the paint and don't use goo-be-gone, try tarminator from stoner. Made for automotive paint.
