  1. I personally know 3 girls, who have bought wrangler for fun without knowing it's specs or offroad capabilities. And they take their Wranglers to work every day and never stepped in sand or rocks. I'm really curious to know why.......?
  2. It's topless season! For Jeeps I mean! Along with that came the unwelcome guest - Stray cats. They have always been around no matter where you are in the UAE... keep your car in a covered parking in apartment building or park it outside, chances are you have this visitor sitting on your warm vehicle, taking creative liberty and leaving foot prints all over the windshield, trunk and roof. And if you are lucky... it will pee and/or leave scratches on your seat! Something had to be done... so I started looking for solutions... Cat Repellent Solutions... Cat have very sensitive sense of smell, so you spray some pungent odor stuff around, it can keep them away. This DIY recipe that worked for me - Water + Vinegar + Eucalyptus + Garlic + Rosemary = Mix all this good stuff up in a spray bottle and Viola! Spray them periodically around your Jeep or car or bike and you will not be bothered again. It worked for me so hope it helps others
  3. Can anyone suggest if new 8 speed Automatic Jeep is better than old 5 Speed, also considering the price difference
  4. Traditionally, in order to disable your ABS/ESC control, you have to do the voodoo "steering wheel dance" or pull out the J6 fuse from the fuse box. Well, pulling out the fuse a few times broke my fuse puller! So, I started looking out for alternatives and finally found a solution. There are two ways to do it. One (most common method you find on youtube videos) is to intercept the wire from under the gear box... this method is tideous as it involves pulling out the 4HiLo gear knob out. This method is a serious pain-in-the-rearo! Good luck if you chose this method.. this post is not for you. Second method, is to intercept the same wire from the source, which is located under the hood. Much easier. Here is a brief write up of how I have done it. Things you need: 1. Any On/Off Switch. I used an accessory push on/off button. 2. 1-1.5m of electrical accessory wire. 3. Insulation Tape 4. Wire strippers and Wire connectors. 5. Handy Drill with drill bit. 6. Lots of patience, Sane enough to Cut the right Wire and a Steady Hand. DISCLAIMER: I do not take any responsibility in case you snip the wrong wire or short anything else in the process. Do it at your own risk. Another Disclaimer: This is a quick and dirty tutorial for a kill switch. Make necessary adjustments in case you want a cleaner safer way. Yet another Disclaimer: Apologies for the dusty pictures. Hope they help illustrate the steps! Okey, now that's out of the way, here we go - 1. Locate the ESP unit under your Wrangler hood. This is usually near the Brake fluid area. Push the lock pins on either side to release the latch and it swings up to unlock. ( Fig 1 ) 2. Unplug two more plugs that branch out from the same harness ( Fig 2 ). After doing this, its easier to pull out the entire harness from underneath the unit and towards you so that you can see it clear. 3. Remove the stock wraps and insulation from the thick main harness to expose the wires. Locate the Purple with light blue wire. Make sure its the right one because there is also another purple with dark blue (leave it alone!). 4. Snip the Purple with Blue stripe wire. ( If you want to make sure you cut the right wire, you can plug everything back in, turn the car on, and it will show the ABS and Traction Symbols on the dash. Pat yourself in the back! If not, and some other symbols show, then go back to step 3 and make sure you cut the right wire! ) 5. Attach some wire connectors to the ends of the striped wire. This is so that in case, in the future, you decide you do not want the switch, or you want to swap it out with something else, you can quickly do it. 6. Drill a hole wherever you decide to place the switch. Fasten the switch to the panel. Place a metal washer behind the switch so that it doesn't press on to the cowl every time you push it. Some recommend placing metal plates, but am lazy... this is supposed to be the easy tutorial, right? 7. Feed the switch wires through the firewall hole (fig# 4 & 5). You can fetch it from underneath the dash panel. Feed it through the right compartments to where you need it to come out. (PS: If you have already soldered the wire to the switch, then do step 6 in reverse. Feed a shoe lace or wire-puller-of-your-choice through the firewall and fetch the wire in from the dash side to the hood) 8. Attach +ve end of the switch wire to one end of the snipped wire and the -ve end to the other snipped end. It doesn't matter if you get the +ve and -ve reversed as you are just extending the connection from the same wire and not dealing with a +ve or -ve literally. 9. Once all the switch and connections are tested and verified, insulate and wrap the wires back. Make sure no wire or metal contacts are exposed. Secure with zip ties where ever necessary. (Fig6 shown for reference but I wrapped the exposed contact later with insulation tape) 10. Close everything back and go through all the work again to make sure everything is where its supposed to be. The Switch pushed in, means the wire is connected, so your ABS and ESC is active. When the switch is in the OFF position, there is a break in the connection, so your ABS/ESC will be inactive. Fig 7 shows a rough wire diagram. To Reset the warning lights on your dash, turn the car off, push the switch to ON position and the ABS/ESC lights should go off. Safety note: Activate the switches ONLY WHEN CAR IDLE. DO NOTE activate while driving or you may end up doing some unexpected drifting or donuts! Tutorial only applicable for JK (07-18) Wrangler models. Refer to your manual for wire codes if needed.

  10. Some of you who drive a 4x4 with a solid front axle might have faced the death wobble from time to time. The below is a comprehensive check on how to analyse and find a remedy to the death wobble. This was posted on another forum which I have copied it here for the benefit of those who need to find a solution to it. Death Wobble isn’t similar to a wobble from an unbalanced tire which is usually only felt at about 48-56 mph, DW is by far worse. When Death Wobble hits you will know… it’s a violent shake from the front end that feels like the Jeep is about to fall apart. Usually when it happens, the only thing you can do to stop DW, is to slow down. The first steps to eliminate Death Wobble should be a visual inspection of each component, checking the bushings, the tire balance and the alignment. DW is usually caused by a combination of several of the following causes, and is not caused by one single part or item that needs attention. These are some common things you must check anytime you lift your Jeep. Death Wobble is experienced mostly on lifted Jeeps, however it is not uncommon for someone without a lift to experience the dreaded DW. Listed below are a few things you can check. -Check your Tires 1. Out of balance tires can cause shaking in the front end, which can lead to Death Wobble. If you have had a pop out in the desert its definitely advisable to get the tires cleaned up completely. A tire/rim that has been balanced can still have internal defects that lead to DW. 2. Make sure all of your lug nuts are tight, (it happens to the best of us) -Make sure you have a good alignment 1. After you get an alignment done, have them print out the numbers for you. An XJ should have a 7* positive caster angle. A lifted XJ can’t always have that high of a number because the pinion would become out of alignment with the front drive shaft. Pinion angle takes precedence over caster. 2. Make you sure you go to a shop that will adjust the caster if necessary (either by shims in the frame side of the LCAs, or adjustable LCAs). -Check your Track Bar, play in this can cause the axle to shake. 1. Bushings - check to see that they are not worn. Looks for cracks, and excessive play) 2. Angles - this angle should be the same as your draglink. Use an angle finders you can get at sears to determine this, don’t just eye-ball it. 3. Bolts – Make sure all bolts are tightened down to spec (some lift components have a different torque spec then) -Check the Axle, your mounts may be worn 1. Check the axle mount. Here is a good write up on a wallowed out bolt hole Jeepin.com - Fixing a trackbar bracket 2. Check your Universal joints, a binding or lose U-Joint can cause DW 3. On the frame end if you still use the conventional Tie Rod End or (TRE) make sure that there is no play in this, as play can cause DW. 4. Look/Check for worn/torn boots on ball joints/tie-rod ends. -Check your Frame 1. Small cracks in the frame can cause the steering box to feel loose; shaking from DW can only make this worse. 33’s and larger should have some form of Steering box brace, or frame brace in. 2. If you have upgraded your frame mount, make sure its cranked down nice and tight. (best to use an impact gun) 3. A busted Frame Mount can cause play in the front end causing DW (Keep a watchful eye on the welds as welds in sheer can break over time. -The more adjustable parts the easier it is to tune in your lifted suspension. 1. Adjustable Track Bar 2. Adjustable Upper and Lower Control Arms (upper ones above 4” of lift). Not only are they adjustable, but they are stronger. -Things to remember: 1. After any lift, get your Jeep professionally aligned, this is a REQUIREMENT, not a suggestion. 2. A Steering Stabilizer (SS) is not a quick fix for DW. 3. Make sure that the lift you purchase comes with all the required parts for a safe driving vehicle. (as long as its going to be a DD) 4. PLEASE ALWAYS DRIVE WITH YOUR FRONT SWAY BAR CONNECTED! Entire list of everything that can cause death wobble: -Front tires out of balance. Clean the tires if there was a pop out in the desert -Front alignment out of spec -Loose track bar -Worn track bar bushings -Worn track bar end -Needing an adjustable track bar -Bad bushings/joints in control arms -Worn/damaged steering stabilizer -Worn/damaged shocks -Worn/damaged tie rod end -Bad U Joint -Bad ball joint -Loose frame mount -Steering box looseness -Need drop pitman arm -Drive shaft(s) not balanced -Bad front hub assembly Torque specs: Item .........................……......Torque Ft. lbs. ..............
