    What did you do to your jeep today?

    Perfect timing on this post! I was wondering what to get Bert before the Nebraska Cryogenics start. The battery it came with is relatively new, but is a little week on the crank when the temp dips...and all the lights dim a little when the subwoofer kicks....

    High Beam Relay Apparently Missing but, High Beams are Working?

    Yeah, even weirder is they worked normally when I left for the desert back in July and at some point during the trip this started. Rang out the entire circuit -suspect bad switch on the column

    What did you do to your jeep today?

    Agreed. You may save some cash by purchasing them through and industrial supplier like MSC or Motion Industries. Same bearings with the price mark up when the exact same items are sold as auto parts. Was able to replace my rear axel seals and bearings for 30$ that way. You results may vary.

    High Beam Relay Apparently Missing but, High Beams are Working?

    Yep. Mine come on with the low beams, turn off with the high but they only do that. Can’t run them independently, can’t have just low beams on alone.

    Replacing radiator. What i am guessing is the ac fan is being blocked by the engine fan.

    Jeep KJ Power steering

    Nulon. https://www.nulon.com.au/amp/specifications/atf/chrysler--/atf-4 Learned this years ago when my 20mm Phalanx blew the gun hydraulics and none in stock on the ship. Used a Nulon product to fill it up after repairs. Exceeded the MilSpec requirements. Was far cheaper than what we used at...

    Dreams have been answered. There are KJ specific snorkel kits out of Poland for about 250$ on eBay. Kit looks to be a clone of the safari for much less cash.

    One note on fording: the KJ is limited to depth lower than the top of the rear bumper corners as that is where the put the interior overpressure vents. ( they allow your doors to open close properly in an otherwise airtight cabin)

    High Beam Relay Apparently Missing but, High Beams are Working?

    Here is a pic on an 07 Sport box. There is not DRL, but the fog lights do come on with the low beams likely due to a bad switch. I have not modified any circuit and am fairly certain it’s as OE intended

    What did you do to your jeep today?

    Yeah, it’s on Facebook so it must be true…far better IMO than putting subway tile it tells her she wants in the kitchen so it will look like the mens urinals in Grand Central Station.

    What did you do to your jeep today?

    What I deal, bought an 06 and all I got was a stray sock and CD of John Denver’s greatest hits…a broom would have been useful.

    What did you do to your jeep today?

    That’s the plan- fix it up, have the wife drive it for the winter, sell that and the Nissan and then get her that Crosstrek Facebook tells her she wants come the thaw

    Strut compression - Best Practices

    Apologies on my ongoing substitution between struts and shocks.:p Also just learned that "MacPherson Struts" applies to the style, not just the actual product these days....was also a cool Band Name. As for the wall mount, I came to the same conclusion. The local DIY garage has one and they...

    What did you do to your jeep today?

    No time to work on Bert the Science Mobile due to my day job, but closed the deal (450$ title in hand) on that 06 gasser 4x I have been eyeballing. Radiator isn't actually shot, just needs a hose replaced. Needs brakes and tires all the way round, and has the usual higher mileage wear and tear I...

    Strut compression - Best Practices

    Hello Gang, Getting ready to assemble the struts and get them in this week, thus finishing the lift. In my studies I have observed both using a fancy wall mount spring compressor, a dangerous looking DIY set with the three bars, and a number of "no special tools needed" assembly techniques. I...
