Two arms - a large pipe wrench in one hand pulling the camshaft in one direction and a 1/2" torque wrench (or breaker bar, for removal) pushing the bolt in the other direction. Easy-peasy. This,...

A pipe wrench is more specifically designed to do exactly what you need it to do with greater surface contact than a vise grip. If anything it should work better.

I actually tried both. The pipe...

You don't necessarily need a vise grip anyway. A common pipe wrench works. I'm not saying so officially though so do anything at your own risk!

How did you get that Harbor Freight 4 ton jack to lift high enough lifting on the chassis if you didn't use any wood to shim it? Or did you lift by the axle tube? If you lifted by the axle tube, how...

Maybe BS, but usually manufacturers exaggerate in the other direction. Like, if they SAY 150 hours, they mean 100 hours. The way I understand it, those who are serious about upping their headlights...

Read the fine print on a Silverstar Ultra's life expectancy. I guess for some applications it's better to burn out than to fade away.

You possess a surfer dude-like mastery of hardcore off-road 4x4 sub-culture lingo. They should make a "Point Break" for off-road people. Dress up as ex-presidents and knock-over a few banks to fund...

Check www.car-part.com for a 242 case. When searching, tell it you have a 2001 to 2003 Grand Cherokee with the 4.7 engine (you do have the V8, right?) and Selec Trac. You should get a search result...

Yeah, see. I'm not sure but surely someone else knows. It may be tomorrow though before anyone answers. My low side switch only has two pins, and so does the compressor. I think I put a jumper across...

I believe there needs to be a certain amount of R134 in the system before it will start to cycle which is a catch-22 because it doesn't really want to take on the R-134 until it begins to cycle....

Everybody wants the best value for their investment. In my experience, you won't always get what you pay for and you won't always pay for what you get. I like value victories but I think that...

The way I understand that it works is when the progressive coupler fails, it dies into permanent 2WD. Comparatively few forum members post about repairing the NV247 transfer case when it fails...

Apparently, the official, proper way to lube the slide pins is with high temperature "brake grease". OK, sure, I bought a tube of it a while back and used it. I suspect though that unless you do a...

Yes, I believe that's how it's done. There are some good videos out there of it in action. It might work better or worse though depending on how the Jeep is sitting, type of ground, type of wheels,...

So it seems to come down to the individual usage scenario. Guys with lifted rigs who wheel a lot would probably benefit from a bumper jack like the Hi Lift and a wheel lift strap accessory. I...

That looks familiar for some reason but I spent some time going through the WJ parts catalog and didn't come across anything.

By the way, if there's such a thing as an American made radiator made to fit the WJ, I'd love to know who makes it or where to find it. It looks like the best you can do on that front is buy a...
