what I did today

Then maybe one more as a container for the non tech stuff that is YJ specific.

Thoughts.
I like this,

The chat thread just combines everything else like,

but the "what would it look like on " is one I like.

I think we should make a sticky for "Show us your YJ" so that everyone can put a picture of their ride up when they join or change something drastic to the appearance

I disagree on the build threads but also don't see a reason to debate it.
You're right. The build threads have their own section outside of the Yj realm.

I think that's probably true. Need a better solution for those, see below.

The "what did I do today" thread gets a fair amount of posts so it probably should be put back as its own stickie. Everyone seems to like the idea of a Chat thread so that should probably stay as is then maybe one more container added for the other non-tech posts.

The reality is that the definition of "tech" is pretty loose. Essentially anything that requires a tool of any kind or sandpaper is tech.

The problem with stickies in general is if there are too many then they are no longer special or receive any extra attention. Plus as I mentioned earlier the entire front page was taken up by stickies at one point leaving room for only about 3-4 regular threads before having to go to page 2.

A few of the mod threads like seats, junkyard mods and wheels and tires have only had a post or two in a month but they are valuable enough in my opinion to have grouped at the top of the page in the Mod super thread.

Lets get some more feedback over the rest of the day.

Right now I'm thinking this for the stickies, in no particular order

I don't think the yjotm needs to be stickied per say unless you're going to just add to the current super thread so the current contest phase thread can be bumped around in general population.

I personally think that the "Wrangler" section in general needs sub-subsections.
If the model main section included CJ, YJ Wrangler, TJ Wrangler, JK Wrangler, then each "wrangler" section could have "technical, and general" rather than one all encompassing "general" for all Wranglers.

The Cherokee and Comanche are in the same section, but the Cherokee has a "non-tech" forum, while the Comanche has only the "tech" forum. Are we saying that no general Comanche posts can be made there, simply becuase they are not related to the tech of the vehicle? There is no place on this site to post any general Comanche threads.

seeing that the all-encompassing "Wrangler" section (YJ tech, TJ tech, JK tech, and general) contains more than twice the threads of the next popular section, it seems obvious to me that reorganization is necessary.

Any more feed back on the stickies, or are we good? I'm still thinking we need one more as a place to keep the non-tech YJ specific stuff like the links in the very first post of this thread.

Personally I don't see a need for any more posting areas. If it's YJ tech we have the main forum. If it's YJ related chat, we have a place for that. And if I add one more container we have a final place for non tech stuff that is still somehow related to YJs. If something does not fall into one of those then it really needs to be in General Discussion or at least Wrangler General Discussion.

anyone else want to chime in?

I'm good with it. There is a place for everything. I like that there are links to all the important threads in the sticky section but the threads can bounce around as needed. There is also the "My Replies" button up top if you guys need to keep up with what's going on in the threads you're helping out or being helped. It, along with the "View First Unread" are the most important tools on the whole site

So...
Non tech talk....

My oba.
A belt driven Saneen custom modded for oba. An Extreme air.
Besides the point.
It leaks. A 2 1/2 gallon tank, 2 locker connects, a tire fillup connect and a gauge with the connecting parts all soft copper 3/8 inch tubing.
I will fill it up to 105 psi and it looses about 15 psi in 1/2 hour and will recycle the compressor without me using any air.
Can/t find the leak. I sprayed the connectors with soapy water and got no bubbles.

My thinking- the check valve is leaking. it is mounted close to the compressor and gets real hot. The check valve HAS to be as close to the compressor as it can...Right?

Do I go spending time and money on a 15psi leak in 1/2 hour?

That's tech related. My check valve is on the tank far away from the compressor. I don't know if my thinking is wrong but with that many connections there may be a leak somewhere
