    Son is looking at an '89 YJ

    So this thing has 160,000 miles on it. The engine needs some work (current owner has parts, pistons and rings). The tub and frame look like they are in good shape. He has a lot of extra stuff, tonneau cover, windjammer, bikini top. Also has half doors and a hard top. The steering feels loose and...

    Losing a pet really sucks.

    Had to let my dog go tonight. He was old. We didn't want him to suffer. I feel like I betrayed my best friend.

    The oldest operating nuclear power plant in the US shut down for the last time today.

    Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station went offline for the last time today. The shutdown was 11 years early. Great place to work. Amazing people to work with. About 49 years of clean, reliable, safe power. Goodbye, Oyster Creek. You will be missed.

    The rise of the Pooper (aka Mocha)

    I've owned my '15 Rubicon for almost two years now. My wife named her Mocha when we left the dealership because the color reminded her of a cup of coffee. When I got home all of my kids hated the color. They called her the Pooper. So now my Jeep has two names. I've enjoyed driving my Jeep over...

    Slow jeep build in NJ.

    Well, I guess it's time to start a build thread. It will be a very slow one since I don't have much to spare on Jeep parts, but opinions and advice are very welcome (I really have no idea what I'm doing). I paid off my Jeep last week and decided it needed some stuff. So I ordered BARTACT seat...

    Very Irritated about car dealership

    I found a 2015 Hard Rock for a really good price on an internet site today. It was at a dealer that was about 700 miles from me. I contacted them and got a reply very quickly.

    Brakes hanging up

    On separate occasions I have had two brake calipers not release when they should and keep the brake pads tight to the rotor. The first time it occurred, about a year ago on the rear driver side, I replaced the caliper. Hasn't done it since. Today I noticed it was driving a little sluggish...

    Your thoughts on purchasing a Jeep

    Over the last six months I have been planning to buy a new 2015 Rubicon Unlimited with only a couple options (hard top and 9 speaker system). Recently I found a 2014 Rubicon Unlimited. No hardtop and a lot of options I wouldn't order, but they are there. The dealer is asking $33,000. The 2014 -...
