    14 JKU M-380

    Well...after building and wheeling multiple Dodge trucks I'm finally gonna build me a Jeep :flipoff2: . Just picked up this 2014 JKU - it's bone stock, right-hand drive, and other than a hurt engine 100% complete. The plan. Gonna gut the Jeep's entire driveline and wiring harness, drop in all...

    Just an 08 JKU

    I'm finally getting close to having my JK running. It's been almost two years since I put an inspection hole in the block driving it home just after buying it. One thing I forgot was to drain the gas tank. It will take me a day or so to get it moved where I can get under it to check the tank...
  3. 2011 Jeep Wrangler JKU 3.8 RLE450

    OK... Posting for a friend. Sounds like his engine is toast. To hear him tell it he was driving home and noticed a lack of power, then on Friday it sounds like he has a piston hitting a valve, or some other kind of mechanical interference. Overall it is in what I consider good condition, well...

    MChat's JKU

    One of the things I love about this place are people willing to do things other people on other forums would tell you that you can't do and it won't work or it'll destroy your rig or whatever. While my end result is probably not much different than a lot of other JK/JKU's I figured I'd share...
  6. Stock-ish mostly 08 JKU Rubi death wobble

    My daughter's 08 JKU Rubicon apparently has a slight tendency for a death wobble at the same place on the interstate. Wife was driving it and texted me all freaked out after it did it her. (texted cuz I was in meeting). She assumed something broke. It was right before her exit so pulled off...

    Persnickety JKUR

    Trying to decide what to do with the POS JKUR. So far its been plagued with CELs of various sorts constantly. Im strongly considering doing an LS swap in the thought that I can just get rid of the POS Chrysler/Fiat whomever electrical bullshit, get some more power out of it as well. Im not...

    JKU, prorock XD60, double throwdown, 42s basketcase???

    Omfg! So I'm helping out a buddy with 2013 JKU that has had over 100k dumped into it and 4 or 5 POS shady shops half-assed it all along the way. Just picked it up from a fab shop where it sat for the past 19 months. Only thing he was supposed to do was a full hydro setup cause the half-assed...

    Weird electrical issues in the JKU

    2013 JKUR. Aftermarket radio It always "works" but sometimes it doesnt put sound out through the speakers. You can do all functions (scroll through XM, radio ect) If the doors are off, the chances of it putting sound out are greatly reduced. To get it to work, you turn the Jeep off open...
  10. Tremec 4050 jku

    Anyone put a tremec 4050 5sp ik a jku yet? I am about to do so on a near stock 13 jku Rubicon. Eventually to be on 37"s 5.38 gears ect. I need a dd, ovelander crawler. This is much more of a chalenge than building a more specialized rig.

    Metalcloaks JKU lift?

    Anyone here running it? Took the ole JKUR out a bit yesterday and it did as expected but damn if its too low. Metalcloaks bushings have me intrigued, and I hear it rides well.

    JKUR tie rod.

    I went to get the alignment done on my 15, JKUR. The shop called and said the tie rod adjuster was broken???? And they couldn't perform the alignment, but it was still within spec. Looking at the tie rod, drivers side...it does seem like an over complicated sleeve setup. So, when I arrive...

    Daily Driver JKU on Tons

    It is a wrecked 09 JKU that I am building for daily driver duties and maybe haul it out west every now and then. I am swapping in a 05 F250 D60 front and a 14 bolt rear axle using Artec kits. I am using Currie links and EVO 3" springs. Stock engine for now but I bought a L96 LS to swap in the...

When I went to pick it up I asked how he liked the sway bar QD's. "Oh I don't know if...

    JKUR 3.6 fuel line question

    Probably should wait to post on Tuesday, but :flipoff2:. there is a fuel line that has a 90 degree fitting along the pass side of the (6-speed) trans. Runs up the trans forward through the tunnel into the engine (from what I can tell). Apparently it’s rubbed against the exhaust and melted...

    Picture of JK/JKU Cage

    Let get some cage designs thrown around. Answer some questions for everyone, with pictures. For example. Did you keep the factory cage? What would you change about your cage? Did you buy a pre fabbed cage? Where did you tie your cage into? What tube O.D. and thickness did you use? You don't...
