  1. 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.

  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,...

  5. 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...

  8. 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. ...

  9. 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...

  12. Angry Unkown noise from drivetrain?

    Have an '06 rubi unlimited, with a 3.5-4'' lift. Ever since the wife and I have owned it over the past 4 years, Ive noticed this clunking noise everytime I press in and let off on the clutch. If I operate the clutch smoothly at a moderate RPM it shifts smoothly and you cannot feel it in the pedals....

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...

  16. Shifter consold issue

    Ok, this issue is strange, so bare with me. 06 LJ automatic. I have this issue mostly when it's cold or really wet. When shifting into any gear, the shifter feels "crunchy"....feels like there's ice or broken glass inside the console. Also, when this happens, sometimes my key won't turn all...

  18. 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.

  20. Derale Transmission Cooler

    After seeing some high transmission temperatures (especially in the mountains), I decided to install the Direct Fit Derale trans.cooler (20561). It's a good kit, designed for the average DIY. If I had to do it again, I would probably get a more generic one (and cheaper) and figure out how to mount...

  22. Power/drivetrain issue

    The only way to describe the issue is there are times when it feels the drivetrain is fully engaged and all the power from the engine is getting to the wheels. There’s a strength to the acceleration, and you can feel the torque of the engine when accelerating. At other times the engine is...
