    15-20 Gallon Fuel Tank Slosh Box Warped

    I've had a problem with my fuel gauge sticking in different places and have read about the poly slosh box inside the OEM gas tank warping which causes the sending unit float arm to rub or get hung up. I had previously tested the gauge and it works as it should so the problem is at the other end...

    Air Compressor Safety

    I found this in a forum unrelated to Jeeps, the guy posted it after his friend was seriously injured during a similar circumstance. It got me looking at my 25 year old Craftsman 25 gallon compressor and I too found lots of rust on the outside and around the welded seams. I can't imagine what...

    Vertical storage for hardtop

    I finished a little project for storing my hartop when not in use. Simple design copied off the internet with a few minor changes. Once the dolly is strapped in place to the top I just raise up the front so it sits on the wheels and roll it off to the side. Lowering it back down is just as...

    Got lucky today

    I've had this YJ for a little over a year of which the majority of time it was in many pieces while rebuilding it. I've been looking for any type top on a weekly basis since it didn't come with anything. Well I came across this true YJ hard top last night and overall it's in very good...

    New Vacuum Disconnect

    Well after my 65 cent mechanical fix to lock the Dana split front axle I've decided to go back to the original set up. Nothing wrong with the spacer I put in as it all worked great but after thinking about the type of daily driving I do, MPG's, and wear on the drivetrain I went ahead and...

    Alarm recommendation

    I read today that someone in our county had their YJ stolen a few days ago. Does anyone use any hidden battery disconnects or car alarms? Sometimes a manual transmission is enough for today but I'm looking for more.

    Jeep YJ seat bolts

    I mentioned in another thread about finally getting my seats out. The seat bracket which mounts to the floor has two flat head bolts which are welded to seat frame probably to assist with the factory installation. My problem is the threads just beyond where the nut screws on are badly rusted...

    What are you using for a jack for your YJ?

    My project YJ did not come with a spare tire or a jack. The spare tire I can find locally but what are owners using for a jack? Still have the OEM one tucked away under the hood? I don't have a lift kit but the previous owner put 31" tires on. What should I look for and where does one...

    Has anyone replaced their exhaust?

    My exhaust seemed a little loud and found there must be a blowout near the catalytic converter. It must be under the heat shroud on top because I never saw it when the transmission was out. Not many places other than Quadratech have complete systems. My cast iron header is still ok for...

    Transmission not shifting

    Another AAArrgh.. I just rebuilt my AX-5 and have put about 60 trouble free miles on it but now it won't shift into 2nd gear. It's like the shift lever is hitting a wall and if I do try to force it in it grinds. The other gears mesh smoothly. All new synchros and bearings and the gears...

    Stuck steering drag link

    Wel I got the alignment done without any problem and now I need to straighten the steering wheel just a little but one end of the drag link isn't budging. Heat and oil yet nothing moves. I'll let it soak overnight. The previous owner torqued the bolt down to 500ft/lbs on that side. The...

    This weekend fender repair

    I had a strange rust hole on the inner fender well near where the horn attaches. It was patched years ago but it didn't last. I made a paper template then cut out the patch and formed it to fit over the fender, then tack welded it in place. Next, while holding the cutting wheel at about a...

    Front Brake Calipers

    AAArrrgghhh. What started as a simple front wheel alignment and brake bleed has turned into a lot more. The front right caliper was easy to bleed and the fluid was very dark, probably been a long while. The front left is a problem. The dang bleeder screw is rusted solidly in place...
