    Did this all just happen on one trail?

    Serious shake in the front end, under 40 is nerve wracking, above 40 itís undrivable. HD adjustable track bar gave up. Threads are stripped so it has about an inch of play in it. Iíll post pictures when the new one shows up. Anything special/important I need to know about replacing it?

    Use a ratchet strap to help recenter the Jeep Over the axle and check both mount locations that the holes werenít out of round. Iíll have to check but I believe you torque them to 125.

    I havenít posted in this thread much, but here I go - first nice day this spring and the wife decided that the wind was a little much as we entered the freeway. Up went the windows and on went the air,,,let me say that again, and on went the air.....no cold air . Thinking that the refrigerant leaked out, we continued on our way. As we got off the freeway and stopped the engine stumbled and almost died. I immediately turned the air off and made it home without any further issue. Upon inspection, at idle with the air on the compressor clutch engages makes the engine stumble and then disengages. Then I turned off the air and turned on the defroster. Immediately the clutch engaged and stayed engaged with the belt slipping. I immediately turned off the defroster and the engine.

    I figure that the compressor is froze so I unplugged it so I can continue to use the defroster. Since the system is still charged Iím thinking about taking it in for the repair.

    Anyone ever tackle this repair by renting the equipment being recovery pump, vacuum pump and charging manifold?

    Yes and no, done the repairs but didn't rent. Used the a/c machine at a buddies shop a couple times and once just paid a shop to evac the system and witnessed how much freon they pulled out. Went home and replaced parts, took it back to the shop and had them recharge. Much cheaper that way.

    Iím going to call around on Monday. Iíll get a quote from my local dealership for shits and giggles along with a couple quotes from a local independent that does decent work. The compressor is $363 from Napa so I will see what the cost is evacuate and recharge the system along with the total repair. It looks to be a pretty easy swap so Iím comfortable doing the grunt work to save a few bucks.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
