  1. WK2 Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hey guys, So today something weird happened to me. I got off work, sat in my car and when I depressed the brakes and pushed the start button the car didn’t do anything. All the lights in the instrument cluster came on (like how it comes while the car starts) but the car didn’t start. The brake...

    My little brother purchase a used 2012 Jeep Wrangler more than a week ago. He is already having issues with it now. His breaks like the lock up and when that happens he has to find a place to park his car so we can turn it off and then turn it back on to get the brakes to not lock up anymore. He...

  6. Jeep CJ Forum
    So I am rebuilding my CJ - it has a Dana 60 Rear and 44 Front built by Dynatech about 12 years ago. I cannot ID the calipers so I can get a rebuild kit for them or even replace them. The parts guys suck - walk-in "year make model?"... Sigh The rear caliper holes are 5.5 inches on center and...
  7. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I was going to put a new brake line on my passenger side front brake. However, once looking at it I noticed there is some damage to the hard line that the soft line connects too. In order to replace that, it looks like I'd have to replace the line that runs through the motor bay all the way to...

  10. Jeep CJ Forum
    I was wondering if anyone has relocated their proportioning valve from the frame rail to a bracket suspended off the brake booster/master cylinder. My exhaust current runs uncomfortably close to the wilwood that was installed and I am not a huge fan of that. If anyone has done this, do they have...

    Hi all, I have a '99 4.0 XJ, well rusted up here in MN.

  16. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 1987 Wrangler YJ. Replacing my gauges with Auto Meter 7040 complete kit, and I swear it will be the death of me. The hardest part is the finding the wires needed to tap into. For example, the TAN wire in the new harness is what I need help with. The instructions state "This is...

    so a few weeks ago, I started noticing an odd smell coming from my TJ every time I wasn't moving. It smells exactly like the smell you get when you go through a particularly rancid puddle, and it all is evaporating. I have looked at several other threads, and many of them say clutch, tranny...
