    Re: SRS able scanner for 99 xj, noco

    Any Autozone will pull codes for you. Usually free if I remember right.

    Re: Ball Joints

    It's not necessarily difficult. But it can be time consuming. You should buy/rent a ball joint press to do it right. Also, coating pieces with anti-seize as they go back together will make future...

    Huh. I've actually been through Whapeton a few times. My mother grew up in Litchville just outside Valley City. We'd sometimes take the scenic drive instead of the interstate when visiting. I...

    Where are these tools located? I'm assuming we'd have to drive there and pick them up.

    Re: The Campfire.

    Winter is typically a down time for me as generally I don't like dealing with a lot of snow on the trails. Especially now that I have a smaller Jeep that can't handle it as well.

    I've also been...

    Yeah, electronics like that don't like it when you let the smoke out of them. Could have been a lot worse.

    Re: 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 $24,950

    A brand new 1/2 ton pickup starts well into the 30's. Even a work truck trim is higher than you might think. I've been pricing out various options for a tow rig and I'm surprised at how fast you...

    Re: Jeep Jamboree replacing CB with GMRS for 2021

    I actually just pulled the trigger and applied for my GMRS license. I'll most likely get a higher power capable base station in my Jeep (like the Midland 40w radio) but I'm probably going to get a...

    I'm sure this had a lot to do with it:

    Re: YASSS!! Production v8 Wrangler early 2021!

    I bet it's a $8-10k premium on top of the cost of the Rubicon.

    And yeah, I expect many will end up with an Atlas.

    It sounds tempting but given health issues, something that's 100% carbohydrates and starches (not to mention what I like to put on it) is something I have to avoid. :frown:

    Very few old Jeeps had a diesel option. It's almost impossible to find one. I can't remember when they went to a boxed frame for sure but it might have been in the 70s. As far as electronics, stay...
