    Hey! The search function actually works with this software!!

    The search feature is much better than on the vBulletin site. But this site still does not recognize Boolean search operators, which would be REALLY nice to have and would make searching much more efficient. I hate to complain, but I am throwing it out there. The search feature, though...

    SoCal Fest 2020

    Is there any plan for SoCal Fest 2020. Has a date been set and a location decided? The sooner we can all get this on our calendars and reserve camp sites the better.

    Tomken gas tank skid installation issue

    I’m trying to install a Tomken gas tank skid on my ‘99 XJ and find that the exhaust pipe is in the way. And I don’t mean it’s just a bit in the way to the point I can clearance it with a pry bar. It’s way more than that. I’m either going to have to modify the exhaust or modify the skid to make...

    Parade?

    In 2014 mako my day entered our chapter in the Laguna Niguel Holiday Parade. We had a good turnout and it was a fun day. Similar parades are held, of course, in towns all over Southern California. Is there any interest in doing it again? If so, now’s probably the time to sign up.

    Alternative replacement for Currie TRE grease boot?

    I want to slap on some new grease boots while I have my tie rod off the Jeep, and I don’t want to order on line and have to wait for delivery if I can avoid it. So I’m wondering if anyone can point me toward a Dorman or similar part number for a boot that’ll fit a Currie TRE and that I can pick...

    ABS (sort of ) brake bleeding

    My '99 XJ was originally equipped with a Dana 35 in the rear and ABS. I swapped the D35 for an 8.25 several years ago and disconnected the ABS. To the best of my recollection, I cut the wires that went to the wheels and removed a fuse to get the ABS light on the dash to turn off. I don't...

    Anyone from SoCal going to Sierra Fest?

    I’m hoping to have my rig road and trail worthy in time for Sierra Fest. If it all comes together, I’ll likely head north from LA on Wednesday, August 8, but I could leave earlier. Wondering if anyone else from SoCal is planning to go.

    Random XJ encounter

    I spotted a film crew working in Griffith Park this evening. I have no idea if they were shooting a movie, TV show, commercial, or something else. Whatever it was, it involved this XJ.

    Pictures!

    Post pictures here! I’ll start with a few random shots, but it’ll be a minute because I’ll have to switch to Tapatalk.

    Big Bear eagle nest

    Has anyone else been watching the Big Bear eagle nest live feed at friendsofbigbearvalley.org? The first chick just shook free of the shell. Pretty cool stuff.

    Lithium ion battery question

    I just bought a new Craftsman lithium ion battery for my old 19.2 volt Craftsman impact wrench. I use the impact wrench only occasionally, but I do carry it with me for tire changes and such when wheeling. The instructions that came with the new battery say to store it at 30% to 50% charge...

    My first 4x4

    Finally forced to do so by a leaky roof, I just unpacked a box of pictures that’ve been in storage for over 20 years and came across a picture of my very first four-wheel drive vehicle, which is pretty danged cool since I thought I didn’t have a picture of it. Here it is — a Korando K9...

    Air tank volume question

    This may be more appropriately posted in the Tools and Garages forum, but I figured it would get more views here. The moderators can always move it if so inclined. I’m thinking of getting an air tank, not to mount up as part of an onboard air system, but just to bring along on the trail or...

    synthetic winch line brake heat protection

    I’m posting this in the XJ modified tech section because I can’t find a better place, but it’s really not XJ-specific. It’s about time I upgrade to a synthetic winch line and ditch the heavy and dangerous steel cable that’s spooled up on my Warn m8000 winch. I understand that a synthetic line...
