    Puzzled by steering wheel being off 20 degrees?

    I did some rough 4wheelin last weekend in my 02 and my steering wheel is now off by maybe 20 degrees. I'm not aware exactly when it happened and strangely didn't notice the steering wheel was off till the next day. It still tracks and drives fine. I noticed some grumbling coming from the...

    HELP! 02 Starts then dies after about a second

    So I bought a 02 Limited, 3.7L 4x4 with bad rod-knock in November and just got the motor installed after a complete rebuild. It started just fine and I drove it around town, 4 or 5 times, probably 20 miles total with no real issues other than discovering the speedometer doesn't work. I was...

    3.7L 02 vs 03 and Later Bedplate and Cylinder Head Bolt Tightening

    Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and also to Jeeps. I bought a 02 Liberty Limited 4x4 3.7L with a spun rod bearing about a month ago. I just got everything back from the machine shop and I'm ready to reassemble the motor. My apologies if this has been asked and answered before but I can't...
