With the moderate amount of lift you've described (1" to 1.5"), you shouldn't need a to drop your transfer case. Dropping the transfer case is done to straighten the angles on the front and rear drive shafts. In your case, consider the length of the drive shafts and the amount of lift. I don't know the dimensions of the XJ, but consider the length of the ...

Your question is relatively vague, however there are a few things that could be at issue. You could have a short circuit in your system that is draining the battery, which could also overload the alternator, causing it to fail. Since most of the circuits in a car are behind fuses, a short causing the problem you describe would have to be before the power ...

The height from the ground to the bottom of the ball will be determined by the trailer you're pulling, not the car. The height of the trailer is such that the trailers hitch is horizontal with the ground, while the hitch receiver on all vehicles is attached to two points on the frame of the car, so the receiver height is fixed for the car - e.g my Subaru ...

Sounds to me like one of the spark plug wires isn't fully seated. I would check both ends of each cable and make sure they're fully seated. The engine code it produced should give you some idea where to start: P0300 - Random or multiple misfires P0301 - Misfire on cylinder 1 P0302 - Misfire on cylinder 2 P0303 - Misfire on cylinder 3 P0304 - Misfire on ...

I have three Wranglers, and there are plenty of places on them to squeak, and not all of them have grease nipples. The most common places that will cause a squeak on the Wrangler, in order of likeliness) Track Bar bushings (rubber bushings, no grease point) Tie rod ends at the axle (usually grease points at both ends) Drag Link (usually greasable at both ...

Check with your local off-road or Jeep club, if there's one in your area, chances are someone has some sitting in the garage. Many people who off-road remove the rear sway bar completely. If you're driving on the road, and haven't made any other provisions, I wouldn't recommend doing this, but you might find someone willing to give you a sway bar link.

You have received some good answers here, but none appear to be specific to the Wrangler. The Wrangler uses a standard 7" round headlight housing with H13 bulbs, and there are several HID kits that will work very well in these housings that will plug right into your stock wiring harness. The HID bulbs will fit right into the housing the same way as the ...

It's difficult to determine the root cause of a death wobble from the behaviour alone, but there are some clues. They're just not fool proof. If you find your death wobble is related to speed, and stops when you lower your speed (instead of having to come to a full stop), then it's probably an issue with tire balance or possibly wheel bearings. If you find ...

You probably have most of the information you need with what was quoted from Jeepz.com, however I just wanted to add a few points. When death wobble occurs on a vehicle, the original cause is often difficult to find because the violent shaking it causes will often damage other components in the steering. So even if you find one item in the checklist, ...

When you purchase a lighter plug extension that adds three extra plugs, you're not changing the voltage because the plugs are in parallel with each other so that each plug can deliver 12V to the accessory connected. How much current each accessory draws, however will be added together, and can't exceed the current capacity, usually dictated by the fuse. ...

Going only from the information here, I'd say there were two issues going on. Firstly, I'd say that the brake job was done incorrectly/badly. A squeaky noise when you apply the brakes is often because the mechanic didn't put any copperslip or similar hi temperature grease on the back of the brake pads (not the bit touching the caliper!). The 'not stopping ...

Interesting That vehicle has fuel injection via the throttle body. It sounds like the engine is getting flooded, just like you said. With IF (fuel injection) flooding has mostly become a thing of the past. Since this vehicle may not have any interface to it's very rudimentary computer it can be hard to get diagnostic information out of it. The fact you ...
