I picked up the basic jump pack from harbor freight about a year ago with a coupon, wasn't expecting much from a cheap little lead acid battery but it'll actually hold a good charge over several...

Take your diff cover off and see what's going on in there, take a picture for us if you're unsure if it's right. The driveshaft shouldn't spin, the spider gears should be spinning, especially if the...

The stamped metal cover for the bendix arm on my starter rusted out a few years ago, and dirt and grime got in and seized up the mechanism. I got a new cover and cleaned out and oiled the bendix...

When I got my GW, the rod pictured above was disconnected from the cable. Simply needed the cable slipped back on with a new clip to hold it. If it's connected and the lever flips, take off the box...

If I remember to, and can find it, I'll post a picture of the pin puller I made, fairly simple and worked well. The loctite on the 4 bolts is important, I fixed my friend's Wrangler and they came...

I'll be sitting this one out, I had plans already for this weekend and the GW isn't quite in the best state of readiness for a 1 1/2 hour drive (and it's a bit of a loud, bumpy, and hot ride). I was...

That's awesome, beautiful work and brilliant idea on the woodgrain, except that gas cap, that's like one enormous blot on an otherwise flawless work of art. Bleh, it's like those goofy chrome gas...

You should check all your grounds before adding any extras, you shouldn't need them. The alt should be fine, unless the bolts and brackets and everything are really corroded, it should ground just...

There's the sock in the tank, and the filter after the pump. If a filter with a return line is located in front of the pump, it didn't come that way, someone put it together wrong. You can add a...

Falken Wildpeaks are pretty aggressive looking but don't have quite so big shoulder blocks, so they should look good and rub a bit less. I was thinking those would be good for the '91 I've got...

Then you'll be good. If you change to different wheels, make sure you stay with 3.75" backspacing and go with 8" wide wheels for the 31x10.5 tires. They'll be fine on 15x7 wheels but they like 15x8...

Yes, they will fit, but the front tires will probably rub a little on the springs near full lock. Are you using stock wheels?

Lol, we had to have posted within a few seconds of each other. So now the argument is which is better, 45 minute cure of overnight cure before torquing?

Good idea to pull the access panel and look inside. Something could be loose, an arm popped off, or the lifter could be rusting apart. BJ's sells a replacement I believe, I made my own when mine...

What about putting on your beat of RTV, then immediately putting on the manifold and snugging all the bolts hand tight, then giving it a good 30-45 minutes to cure a little before torquing the bolts?...

I seem to remember a bad bulb causing the blinker indicator light to stay on and not blink. Also take a look at the blinker relay switch itself on the fuse panel.

I would choose 8", it will move the tire out just a hair and a 31x10.5 will be happier on an 8" wide wheel. I ran 31x10.5 BFG A/T'a for years on stock 15x7 wheels and they were fine, but they looked...

If you have a return line it needs to be after the pump, otherwise the pump is going to be pulling fuel from the return.
