The 2 optima reds I bought around 1999-2000 are still kicking strong. I don't know what the secret is or I am having dumb luck. Both vehicles have functional charging systems, but I have ran them...

My truck had a plastic line that cracked in 1999. I replaced it with copper and no leaks to date.
I put a couple coils on the sender side, but not the gauge side, and ran it through grommets and used...

69 1414d, metal surround.
(I did buy a unit off a member here for extra parts and the bezel was chromed plastic. Unsure what year or model the AC came out of.)

Get comparables and round up any receipts of very recent work. I got $2400, after $100 deduct for salvage, for my 75 Cherokee with very similar damage as you, and I got to keep it.

Cherokees are slightly different. They don't wrap the passenger side like wags and trucks do. They will fit, but you may have some holes to fill.

Yes, made sure of that. All pressure plate bolts were tightened to spec, little at a time.
In my case, the engine was removed and bellhousing left attached to tranny and I was careful to get the...

New clutch in the J10. The old one worked fine until a pressure plate finger broke, so I got a new disc, pressure plate, pilot, throwout bearing, clutch fork, and inner return spring.
All went back...

testing a water pump off the vehicle

Is there an easy way to determine if a water pump is good before installing it? Mine finally gave out and I have 2 sitting in the shed. The bad one was leaking at the weephole, so I pulled it off and...

Mine are all wired battery hot from the factory. I prefer it this way. I can let a phone charge while I'm parked.

No those are not it. I think I saw it in Jeep, the Unstoppable Legend book (that CJ front clipped Wag pic is in there too). It had horizontal quad lights, no pie plate faux covers and the Rhino...

The door shells strayed the same, but minor upgrades started in '76, like the vent window hardware. I would prefer this over the earlier style. Other than that, there isn't much difference overall....

There's a clay Wagoneer prototype from the early 60's with quad headlights and some minor front end differences. I can't find an online pic of it.

You can always source another one at a wrecking yard. That stud is pretty common with AMC V8's. If all else fails, cobble one up or have a machine shop make one.

An old chiltons I have shows the cable for a '72 FSJ, so I guess it was used. The full cable, about a 6 ft length, was used in Jeepsters and I think CJ's. It was, politely saying, subpar. The one in...
