    VIDEO : PIPPI on the Rocks Testing Her Rubicon Sway Bar Disconnect

    Another great video! Always impressed with what a stock JL can do when driven by an experienced driver. Thank you for sharing!

    Another great video! This simple approach would save a lot of people the cost of a tow out in the area where I live who park in the sand just off of the pavement. Every year I see several cars and trucks up to the rear axle in the sand waiting on a tow truck.

    Duck left on my door handle

    As the title states I had a mini rubber Duck left on my door handle in the Walmart parking lot. It has “#duckingjeeps” written on it. Anyone seen this or know about it? I’m clueless on this. Sent from my iPhone using WAYALIFE mobile app

    No electrical power...

    I opened my JK this morning using my key FOB (doors unlocked and headlights came on) and got in. The Dome lights were on and everything seemed normal. This is my daily driver. I pushed in the clutch, put the key in and turned it in the ignition and nothing happened. Dash didn’t light up. So...

    What was done to your rig this week?

    Finally got my hardtop put into “storage” after going through a bunch of rack options that I was going to build. So instead, I used my existing hanging rack system and “family man power” to get it up there. Sent from my iPhone using WAYALIFE mobile app

    What was done to your rig this week?

    Installed the Synergy gas tank skid a couple of weeks ago to replace my OEM skid that was a bit beat up and had rusted through in one spot exposing the plastic gas tank. I ran into the same issue Eddie did when he installed it with the holes in the aft passenger side bracket not being tapered...

    Shop Near Norfolk, VA for clutch replacement

    Does anyone have a shop that they recommend in the Norfolk, VA area? I moved to Norfolk about a year ago and I hadn't needed a mechanic until now. Last week my wife was driving my JK and it appears that the TOB has completely failed from what she and her Dad (retired mechanic) were able to...

    Matt's build

    It been a long time since I updated this thread. So after running the Ultra Flo “muffler” for a few years I finally got tired of it. Too loud and the drone (2,200-2,500 rpms which is where I tend to drive at RPM-wise). So after a lot of online research I went with the Dynomax Super Turbo...

    Belly cam install

    I like how you installed the camera. I would waterproof the RCA connectors that come off of the camera. I installed a waterproof forward camera when I got my new head unit because it has an input for a rear camera and a front camera. I ended up installing the forward camera under my front...

    Replacing Headers with OEM Exhaust Manifolds

    As several members told me about a year and a half will have exhaust leaks, higher engine temps, bolts will loosen and spark wires will be burnt IF you install headers. All of these things have now happened to me since I installed my JBA headers except burnt spark plug wires. That...

    knuckle castle nut size?

    I installed the Prosteers about 2 months ago...and I can’t remember the size of the OEM castle nuts when I removed them. They were shot. I threaded the old castle nuts on them and chucked them in the waste metal bin at the shop I used to do the install. I’m not sure if it will help, but here...

    Dynomax Exhaust Questions

    Here is what mine looks’s not the best picture but that the best I currently have on my phone. I did fit my system before I cut the intermediate pipe, so I realized that I didn’t have to cut it so I don’t any interference issues. I guess I got lucky for not following the...

    Run up in New England?

    Hey Guys, I’m up in Rhode Island until November and I’m looking to do at least one trail run while I’m up here. I would really like to do something with a few members if possible. I’ve wheeled in VT and NH before but not in ME or MA. Let me know if you are interested and we can organize a...
