    Stripped a very solid 82 yesterday

    Came across a very solid 82 model yesterday. The hotrod company that is performing the restomod called me to go and blast it. I was very excited to do it but it was like rubbing salt in old wounds. I sure miss my old one but know that I will get another one. Hope I can find one that is at least...

    Caster questions

    Ever since I purchased my 8 I have had thought the caster was off because; 1) the wheel doesn't return to center after turning 2) excessive wandering(all steering components new) and 3) 4" lift and no shims. I recently had it sitting on stands resting on the axles and did some checking. I...

    RPM question for XJ owners!

    I have been driving my son's 98 XJ a lot lately and noticed that at 70 mph it is running at about 2300-2400 rpms! This seems a little high to me and I wanted to get y'all opinion? It is stock, 4x4, and has P235/75R15 tires. I checked the speedo with a gps and it is accurate. I don't have any...

    Diesel vs Gas? What's your opinion?

    I am starting a small business where I will be pulling a trailer weighting around 4,000 lbs plus up to 2000 lbs in the bed. I am having trouble deciding between a duramax or a 6.0lt gas.

    Chevy Colorado- Good? Bad?

    I am looking at a 2004 Chevy Colorado for my son and I have very little experience with these. Has anyone on here had any? I was working service at a Chevy dealer when these came out and we didn't have many problems with them but I left in 05. Does any one have a CarFax account they could run...

    Great find but a sad sight!

    One of the perks as a salesman, I get to drive around looking for business but I also get to look for interesting Jeeps and other vehicles. Well today I spotted this and thought it was pretty sad to see it sitting in grass as tall as it is in a wrecking yard and it looks in great shape (at...
