    To the friendly Jeep community, I am a long time member but mostly a lurker. I have a 2008 Jeep JK Unlimited X with manual and it has 130k mostly highway miles on it. I love this vehicle to death but on Christmas evening, I ran into an idiot who did not see me in his driver side blind spot and...
  3. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I live in New England, so the frame has a lot of rust. I was hoping it wouldn't be rotting out, but it's gotten to that point. Today I noticed this in the frame on the driver's side and it looks really bad, so I'm not driving it anymore. Is my Jeep completely f'd at this point?

    I have a YJ wrangler that I want to clean the frame and put some good chassis paint on it. I have never done this before, or bought any paint like this. I'm not lacking in the skills to do something like this, but I have no special tools for painting. I do have a low vloume, low pressure paint...

  11. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Well.... I got stuck, in some bad mud/guck/silt. it was bad. And when the nice man in the F-150 tried to pull me out he ripped my bumper clean off. Then we hooked it up to the frame piece behind the bumper and that too ripped off! Finally after a 2500 cummins and this F-150 hooked up they were...
  12. XJ/MJ Cherokee Non-Technical Forum
    I recently bought a '99 XJ with low mileage - 128,000 miles. I think I got a pretty good deal $3000 because the headliner was torn up and the hood and fenders had a few small dents and the back leaf springs were flat and had some rust. Most of the car is rust free. But the previous owner used...

  19. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello everyone! My Jeepster and I got into a crappy accident recently. After learning of the deductible and estimates, I decided to fix it myself, as I thought it was just the bumper. After I finally removed the warped bumper, I came across what I was fearing to see. (I hopefully added the...
