    Electric Fan T-Stat Switch

    Just doing a little homework here. Does anyone know the appropriate temp range for the fan switch with a 195 t-stat? I was looking at an on at 205, off at 195 unit, does that sound right? Makes sense in my mind, but I'm not an expert. I'm pre-wired for 2 terminal unit, any suggestions?

    The Law of "Inanimate Reproduction"

    Some the long time wheelers here have probably heard that term, maybe even experienced it. States; If you take something apart and put it back together enough times, you will end up with two of them.

    Anyone have any experience with a Dana 489 axle?

    Hello again, Just discovered that I bent my D35 on my first real 4WD trip (what a surprise), clobbered a shock mount on the driver side with a rock. Then the lunch-box locker decided it wasn't going to unlock the driver side axle. It's not bad enough that the axle's bound up in the splines, but...

    2.5 running warm at driving speeds

    Hi folks, I've been jeepin for 30 years but I'm new to the YJ. Had mine for about 3 years now putting less than 100 miles on it as a driveability issue cropped up after lifting it then an electrical Gremlin reared it's head. My question is this; is it normal for a YJ to run with the guage...
