    Hey everyone!

    We're trying to build a repository of helpful how-tos for everyone to use. If you've done something interesting and can detail the process, note it here. If there's something you want to do and would like a guide, reply to this thread and as a community, we'll try and provide it for you.

    This forum is open to everyone newbie and veteran alike. While good natured ribbing is acceptable, chastising anyone for asking newbie questions is prohibited, so please feel free to ask for anything you want.

    In order to keep the forum clean, If you would like to request a topic, please reply here. The only time to start a new thread in this forum should be when you're posting a new How To guide.

    Disclaimer: Please note that the HOW-TOs here are based on our experiences with the Liberty, or based on service manual recommendations. Please bear this in mind when attempting to replicate any how-to listed here. Most of us here do this as a hobby, and are not certified mechanics.


    Thanks!

    Re: Coolant

    Just added for you. There's one image that goes with it which should be online shortly. LMK if this helps!

    Just completed the How-to for puddle lamps and I would like to add it to the section. But I want to make sure there is ample filespace for it. It is only about 1MB (~20 pictures).

    I was planning on just editing my first post to add it, is this ok?

    Right now, due to bandwith restrictions (in order to keep the site running properly), you can only put pictures up if you host them elsewhere - PM Bennett if you cant, he may be able to point you in the right direction.

    Re: CD Changer Installation

    this would be a good start

    http://www.jeepkj.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=317

    where do you want to install it? where that net thing is in the cargo area (where it's normally installed by the factory) or under the seat or something.

    cd changer installs are pretty much a piece of cake. pull out the HU, plug in the necessary cables. biggest obstacle is routing the cable to the changer, and changer placement.

    I'd like to learn how to remove the factory installed Renegade lightbar and, conversely, how to install (or re-install) either it or another type of lightbar, generally speaking. Thanks all!

    I am sure you can remove it but you will be left with mounting holes in the roof. I am not sure if ahy of the oftermarket bars will line up with the same holes. Could be wrong though.

    The only reference to "Light Bar" in the service manual is in the "Accessory Colors" section
    -----------
    Renegade
    Roof
    Rack/Light
    Bar
    Deep Gray ZSP
    -----------

    So, I think we'd have to find the install instructions for the light bar and do them backwards? Dunno.

    How to change your transmission fluid

    Brand new member here. First post. I'm active on the CTD Ram boards. I'd like to see a how-to on changing your automatic transmission fluid.

    Lubrication

    I'd like to see a lubrication chart of some kind. Where the points are and what the recommended materials to use. The Service Manual is pretty weak on the matter.
