I did move the tongue forward... twice.

The first time was when I put the tray up front of the tub for the cooler. When I put the cooler tray up front, I couldn't swing the trailer 90-degrees to...

I get in the mid 30's with my little four-cylinder engine.

The four-cylinder engine in my 2008 Toyota Yaris that is!

You don't buy a TJ for the gas mileage (mpg); you get it for the fpg (fun...

Yes. Unfortunately, there are some folks on the JeepForum who are quite vocal in their distain for the 2.5 TJs (it is almost funny sometimes to listen to them). And that's fine; let someone else...

Last week I sent an email to Centerforce asking how much heavier this high inertia flywheel for the 2.5/AX-5 was compared to stock, and if it was a straight swap-out with the factory flywheel. They...

So today is Saturday. A former coworker asked me to help her load a U-Haul truck this morning (we were done in about an hour). I decided to drive the TJ to her place (I could have driven the truck...

Here's the deal; know what you're getting into when purchasing a TJ. Don't be stupid. Don't be an idiot. Don't make poor choices that you'll regret later. Nobody forced you to buy a 2.5 TJ in the...

Remember, the old WWII jeeps only had a 60hp four cylinder engine, and they did all sorts of crazy stuff with them (second picture). They won the war. And after the war, a lot of veterans...
