  1. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Ok guys (or gals, whatev you identify as…lol). I picked up my third YJ (1991, 4.0, 5 spd, mostly stock drivetrain) a couple months ago, and most of the heavy lifting had already been done…lift, tires, 4.10 rear diff swap, SYE, Trac-Bar lift welded on, etc….she also came with a ring and pinion...
  2. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    So hey there everyone! Been a member of several automotive boards over the years - now finally adding Jeep to my list. Lol. I picked up a 93 ZJ (Cherokee Laredo) back in Nov of '17 and have been loving it. Very easy to work on (better than BMW, Ford, and Mercedes for sure!), and fun to drive...
  3. Steering Bearing

    My son is trying to replace the bearing on the lower steering column. He can't get the bearing past a lip on the shaft. We are wondering if anyone knows what we are doing wrong.
  4. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    My son is trying to replace the bearing on the lower steering column since the old one was destroyed. He has reached an impasse, he can't get past the small lip on the shelf. We don't think we can go from inside. I told him I'd post on Jeep Forum for help. I have a video on YouTube, but since...
  5. KJ Liberty Forum
    At 245,000+ miles and a weekend wash job that included spraying under the hood (I know, I know), Monday morning's startup was normal, but a half mile into a 55-mile one-way commute to work, I noticed a slight miss, and just figured it was a little dampness. Three miles later it starts knocking...
  6. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I recorded the sound my 1998 Jeep GC 4.0 is making. The sound is noticeably louder than 5 months ago. Jeep has around 142k miles on it. From my research it sounds like how people describe a bad pinion bearing. I took the Jeep to the shop and all they said was "need to replace rear axle for...
  7. General Jeep & Off-Road Equipment
    Hello All. My son and I are in the process of rebuilding a Jeep T18 Transmission. I had noticed that it has been rebuilt before and that it seems to be missing the Main shaft Pilot Bearing Roller Spacer that goes between main shaft and clutch shaft. We have been searching for hours and we cannot...
  8. Engines & Drivetrain
    The story... Ok, so my friend and I took a 30 mile trip to visit the movie theatre. On the way back I was taking the off ramp to head home when I had to downshift to avoid a road hazard (Officer making a stop). When I shifted back up, my Jeep immediately began squealing. Having no other option...
  9. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hi all, I just replaced the front bearings on my 2005 wk. I had some help and got it done in about 4 hours or so. I figured I would at least share some info pictures and video on my project so others can ask if they have questions. I am not a mechanic, but I can at least give you my...
  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey everyone, I have owned my 2006 TJ wrangler for a few months now and its giving me endless problems. I has spent more time in garages than in my driveway.. So basically after multiple mechanics and over $1000 spent I have no idea what this noise is. I have narrowed it down to this. The...
  11. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hi everyone. After taking my jeep for some aggressive off roading, maintenance has been draining my bank account... So I will be replacing the starter and front bearings with a friend in the next month or so. The starter is caked with mud and makes a grinding noise sometimes at crank. The...
  12. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can lend some assistance! I'm scratching my head on this one... and it really shouldn't be complicated at all. I'm rebuilding a TJ and here are my donor parts: 5spd NV3550 trans from a 2000 TJ and a 4.0L motor from a 2004 TJ. The motor was originally mated to a...
  13. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I have this problem when I turn there is a bang/pop noise from the front driver and passenger side of the jeep. It sounds like it is coming from the wheel area but not exactly sure. I haven't been off roading or doing anything crazy in the jeep, just driving it normally. This has just...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi, firstly, excuse the length, but some explanation is needed. I have a 2000 Wrangler 2.5se that failed it's MOT (UK car safety test) on several items; Steering column, rubber bushings, ball joints. They quoted me $1000 to fix it all, and most of that was just parts no labour. I was visiting...
  15. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I decided to drop my front axle change out the knackered UJs, ball joints, bushes and give it a coat of paint... Time constraints, lack of sleep (First born son) and gung ho attitude means I made a complete CF of it. I'll share my mistakes so you don't repeat them. Lesson number one The upper...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello All, So, my 97 TJ makes a slight moaning sound when accelerating that seems to be most noticeable between 30 and 50mph. When I say moaning sound, I mean very slight bearing howl. Sounds goes away when you let off the gas. I thought it was probably the rear-end I was hearing, but now I'm...

  20. Engines & Drivetrain
    So I have 1982 CJ-5 with a 350 engine swap. Problem is I just bought the Jeep and know little about it. It started to sound funny about 500 miles into having it. It was quite clear that it was the throw out bearing. So I pulled the transmission and as I thought it was bad. So why I'm in here I...
