    Another - Reintroduction!

    ElDee here.... I was prompted to post after seeing there were some other "old timers" returning. I joined in 2005, and had a long torturous relationship with a Jeep restoration facility - I don't believe they are in the Jeep restoration business any longer. I've enjoyed my Scrambler, but there...

    Wakeboard Tower Speaker install on Rollbar

    I'm curious if anyone has used anything like these clamps to mount speakers to your rollbar? If, so - I'd like any advice you might have. OR, if any of you boat owners have used them - could you give me some input as to how they might or might not work in a rollbar application. Thanks in...

    Round Two: Guess my 8's Issue

    You guys did so well with my clutch issue (and so generously participated) I thought we might try to diagnose my follow-up issue. There is a distinct sound coming from my suspension at very slow speeds (like pulling into a parking spot or the garage) that sounds like the threads of a bolt...

    Let's Play... Diagnose My Issue!

Double cluthching resolved the issue for a couple shifts, but quickly reverted to a struggle. Again, double clutching allowed me to return home, but their were many moments when...

    Issue Diagnosis - HELP Please

    Diagnose my issue

    I've just started my jeep after storing for the winter. It starts, idles and revs without issue. But as soon as I attempt to drive, it coughs and coughs. It seems to have particular difficulty going uphill. It seems old gas would not be a big enough issue, right? I could run out the old and put...

    Ful Filler Hose Replacement

    I'm guessing I need to replace my fuel filler hose. I noticed a slow drip of fuel as I filled up the other day, but no drips after. Presuming that's what I need to do, is that a job a newbie can handle? If so, are there any tricks to the job? And, having read the posts regarding the wrong...

    Purple Power/Engine/Electrical

    I raised the hood on my Scrambler to investigate a smell of hot oil that I had never smelled before. Well, to my surprise I found that I had left the oil fill cap off after changing the oil. So, I would like to use purple power to clean the engine bay (it has a thin coating all over it!). So...
