    Parking light not working--looking for electrical diagnosis advice

    My wife noticed that the parking light on my driver's rear tail light wasn't working while we were out camping last week. I put a new bulb in today and it still doesn't work (tested the new bulb in the passenger side tail light). The brake light, reverse, and turn all work, it just doesn't...

    Question for Cooper SST Pro tire owners

    I’m thinking about ordering some new tires and I’m leaning towards BFG KM3s or Cooper SST pros. My biggest gripe about my KM2s is that the lugs get lots chunks taken out from playing on the rocks. I don’t know if the KM3s would do the same, but I’m guessing yes. I’m wondering if Cooper tire...

    Adams 1350 front ds question

    I installed an Adams 1350 driveshaft a year or so back to go along with my PR44 and noticed from the beginning there was extremely tight fit between my t-case lever (on the t-case) and the yoke that I received from Adams. Every once it a while the yoke edge rubs against the t-case shifter lever...

    I've recently been hearing an intermittent knocking sound coming from the rear of the jeep. I finally had some time yesterday to try and diagnose the issue.

    Squeaky endlinks, what's the cure

    I love my EVO endlinks but they squeak on the trail and it drives me crazy. I've tried hitting them with some white lithium grease and WD-40 but that only works temporarily. They only seem to squeak on the trails. Anyone else have this issue? How did you fix it? Edit: whoops, looks like I...
