    Over heat, crappy radiator

    So this is likely all on me, I have a 1995 4.0 L AW4 auto Jeep, no real mods other than lifted 3" ish inches and 33" tires. The radiator that was in the Jeep (replaced by Previous Owner) was a fairly nice looking radiator, all metal and heavy duty looking. It got a hole in the core and...

    Signs of when the Alternator goes bad

    Today when starting the Jeep after driving it around and also being in the middle of a camping event in Yellowstone. The check engine light came on and the voltage appears to be around 12.5 (don't have a multimeter on me, just gauging where the dash volt meter is sitting). Using a external...

    Rear disc on XJ C8.25" from a ZJ

    With the old drums and 33" tires were not helping me stop and finally needed to get around to getting new shoes. Thought I might as well use the C8.25 29 spline rear end I have had laying around for the last few years to good use. Grabbed the rear disc brakes off a 98 ZJ in the local junk...

    Stud part # for Rear Disc Conversion

    I am going to be going to the junk yard on Friday to pick up parts for my rear disc conversion using Grand Cherokee parts. Going through the How-To's they say to pick up longer wheel studs. I guess I have two questions. What Knurl Diameter is needed for the C8.25" or what part # is needed...

    The smell of hot wires and a whip of smoke from steering column...

    On a short trip I smelled a faint smell of warm / melting wires and was not sure if it was from my Jeep or not. It was not very strog. When I pulled up to the house (less than 2-3 min drive...) I removed the key and turned off the Jeep and a small whip of smoke came from under the steering...

    A/C Compressor Info?

    This is not a request for the OEM manual, the A/C Compressor manufacture has a manual and looking to get information from it or a link to it. (manufacture I believe provides this so should be within forum rules) I just got a new 4 Seasons compressor which was delivered with shipping oil and...

    AC Compressor clutch

    The AC finally went out on the Jeep last week. When the AC is on its a little bit cooler than normal vent but not by much. The clutch still engages when selected to be defrost or AC. But when I its standard vent/floors the clutch "catches". is this just saying I need a new compressor clutch...

    Ran Transfercase Dry

    So my Jeep has become my wife's vehicle and I may have been neglecting its care a bit. Since changing out the ball joints where has been a bit of a noise (I always attributed it to possibly a fan clutch gone bad, or some other vibration that was not critical. I checked all the bolts and...

    Hitch Harness

    Is there a hitch harness kit you can get for the Cherokee? I remember a few years back when I was first looking there might not be a "kit" and you just need to get a universal? I got what I believe is a factory hitch off a jeep in the junk yard and was going to get a 4 wire to 7 way adapter...

    t-stat or something else?

    So my jeep regardless of the weather outside only gets up to 160F (per my dash gauge) and only under heavy use does it ever only get to the 210. Does this sound like the t-stat might be stuck open? Or perhaps the fan clutch going bad and is stuck on the "high speed" setting?

    What is this silver tube?

    So have a question. I was replacing the light switch on the instrument cluster and left power connected. After removal of the switch and install of the "new" switch and doing the final securing I felt something warm on my arm. I found that it was this metal tube. Its a 3 prong no marking...

    Key Cylinder, going bad?

    Over the last few months (perhaps its been a year now), I have not been able to rotate my key all the way clockwise till it stops to start the car. I have to slowly rotate it from the "On" to the "start" position waiting for the starter to engage. This was no problem and got use to it. But...

    lower control arms, great find at the junk yard?

    Picked up a set of "explore Pro Comp Chomolly Series" front lower control arms of a XJ from the junk yard this morning. Any thing I should do before installing them on my jeep? Should I replace the bushings? They look a little worn. I am guessing an alignment is going to be needed also?

    Alternator, Blower Fan, AC Clutch?

    I have been battling my AC not working for the longest time and we are having record highs out here hitting at and over 100 F. I think I may have narrowed the problem down to possibly an electrical problem. When driving at freeway speeds (dont worry I was not the one taking the picture) My...
