The actual roll bar/cage. Bruinjeeper says you already have the family style, and I can't see enough of it to be sure. The difference is in the rear portion. Sport style just has 2 struts that...

I have Bestop front seats and Seatbeltsplus belts in the front. In my opinion, the seats you have are much better and I wish I had them. Alas, mine were so worn that replacing was the only real...

Spec is 13 PSI minimum at 600 RPM.

So yours is low. I think the low pressure indicator switch is 7 PSI.

I don't know if you must lower the exhaust, but it definitely will be worthwhile. Just disconnect at the header and let it hang.

Jeepster, that crack looked to me like a normal casting stress contraction. Most aluminum castings will have some of those. They are surface flaws only, then over time dirt collects there and they...

I think it is the 2.5 that has repeated issues with the motor mount brackets. Not really an issue on the 4.2, and as long as the original bolts are in good shape I say reuse them.
