I was able to adjust the locking/latch mechanism a bit, and it’s closed. It slides in/out maybe 1/4 inch. I’m not sure if it will require further adjustment yet or not. I tried going to the car wash...

Rear lift glass

After a couple trips through the car wash, I’ve realized there is water leaking in through the lift glass. In retrospect, I should have just put rtv on the old weather strip and closed it. I don’t...

I replaced the transfer case side cv joint on mine. It didn’t go well. I got a cheap replacement full shaft from driveshaftparts.com. While I had that one on, I took my original to a driveshaft...

The v6 was the same from 05-10 as far as I know.

The 4.7 got a fairly substantial upgrade for 08. 70hp/39tq. I’d never consider the v6 for myself. I think it’s underpowered and it lacks a 2 speed...

I think all the aftermarket cv axles are basically junk. Even the Mopar rebuilds are a no go for me. I’d get a new Mopar unit if you don’t want to do the job again. You may or may not need axle...

Definitely sounds like a rotational accessory noise. Best way to tell is to pull the belt, and spin everything by hand and see if you can hear/feel anything that doesn’t spin smoothly.

I bought my 08 4.7 with a 187k miles last December for about $2500. I’ve since put about $15k into it. 🙁

Not all of that money was necessary, but I tend to go overboard.

IMO, the...

You can do this with a relay and your own larger gauge wires. They also sell kits for this. They were often used for after market HID kits, where you wanted to run the lights from the battery while...

Both sensors are on the passenger side. Mine works fine but still has a code for each indicating voltage problems.

When you start the Jeep at night, do you see the light spread in front of you...

In my case, it was going back to where it was suppose to be on its own after straightening the wheel. I’m not sure they bothered with that bolt when mine was aligned, so trying to change its position...

I’d be curious to see the print out they gave you indicating it needs a flash by the dealer. It sounds like they’re blowing you off. Maybe a better shop, or replace with an NTK sensor yourself if...

Looks like the thermostat housing is the culprit. I’d plan on a new thermostat and possibly housing since it’s cheap. I’d also use a new upper/lower radiator hose.

If your coolant is fairly new,...

I’m going to grab hptuners and use it in conjunction with my already loaded Hemi fever tune if I can.

I did 5000k HID in my expedition in the past and while they were bright, they didn’t help much in actual fog or bad weather. I switched to a 3000k HID (which actually looked more greenish), but it...

I’m thinking yes. Get under there and look at the (bolt side) of the large front bolt on both sides. Mine had fairly obvious scrape marks on the subframe indicating the bolt was sliding with enough...

I got my wk last year, and while the fog lights worked, the lenses were completely hazed. I ended up getting new fog lamps, and upgraded the bulbs to 3k led for the same reason mentioned above. Much...
