  2. Noob with a Trans Question

    I am about to pull the trigger on an 06 Rubicon with an auto trans. After doing some research and seeing the issues with the 42RLE it has me slightly concerned. While I have seen a few bandaids to address the issue, I do not think I have seen a definitive solution. Is there a permanent fix to...

  3. floppy shifter temporary fix.... and question

    OK so over the weekend I was wheeling and the dang cable jumped off of my automatic shifter lever in the middle of a long rocky descent. Jeep was stuck in 4Lo and 1st gear and the lever just flopped around. I know it is common for the cable to pop off underneath the jeep, but this was at the top,...

  4. Tuner and "Stuff"

    I just got a job at a local stereo shop. They are in a nationwide buyers group for parts. I found out that I can obtain items for my vehicles at 10% above our cost. My LJ has 35's, and needs the speedo reprogrammed. I can take it to the dealer and pay to, or I can buy a tuner that will do it. ...

  6. OPDA - issues/comments

    I thought I would start this thread since it involves 2005 & 2006 Jeeps. I don't have any personnel experience with it yet, so I'm reposting a few responses from another site. Keep in mind this thread is over 300 pages long (and still active). Reference to modifying OEM part... And why...

  7. Fuel fill overflow?

    Has anyone else on here had to deal with this problem? Guess I'm going to do the Hoppe mod - replace fuel filler hose with GM part that has the check valve built in.

  12. engine lope at idle

    took my baby out for some light wheeling for a few hours last Saturday. Did fine. Was a little dusty out (not horrible) and I did run through a single puddle (axle deep). I didn't push it very hard and it did great on the trails. Loaded it up on Saturday afternoon and brought it home. My boyfriend...

  14. Transmission pan upgrade.

    I was doing some research on aftermarket trans.pans and I found a thread that implied the '06 had an improved pan already on it. However, when I compared what I had on my '06, it fit the description of the old one. Anyone else have any information on this. Copied from this thread -...

  16. Issues dropping oil pan: Heads-up

    SHORT VERSION: Go buy a set of metric universal sockets and two feet or so of 3/8" ratchet extensions if you don't have them already. You'll need them if you ever have to drop your y-pipe. LONG VERSION: I had some noise coming from my engine this weekend after having had some oil...

  17. Gas tank tuck?

    From what I've read online, and evident by the dents in my gas tank skid plate, I think I need to do the tank tuck and/or new skid plate to get more rear-end clearance. Can the tank be raised without changing the skid, or is it just that the new skid hugs the tank better? Has anyone got any...

  19. Lift and transmission/cross member solutions

    Finally got the 4" superlift kit onto the LJ. We did put the drop spacer on the transfer case crossmember but really don't think its necessary on the LJ. And then just put the stock auto transmission skid with a couple of leftover spacers on it to drop it slightly just for a quick solution. ...

  20. exhaust?

    About half-way back on passenger side, the exhaust pipe uses a rod that goes into a pipe for mounting. Mine looks like its welded together. Is this correct or should there be some sort of isolator for that hanger.
