CSF 3-core TJ Radiator Install

We’d never had any cooling problems with the TJ, so it wasn’t until the top tank of the radiator actually started leaking that I realized there was a problem. The upper and lower tanks on the TJ radiator are plastic and are clamped onto the metal radiator, and as a result they’re notorious for leaking [...]

Hanson XJ Cherokee rear bumper and tire carrier install

Article by Jason Dietz. I first started by pre assembling most of the parts on the bumper before I got started, the bear claw latch, as well as the studs for the spare and bushings on the swing away. The easiest way to install the bushing is to use the bolt through the bushing and [...]

Bilstein 5150 install

Installation date: 4/2/05 Back in the spring of ’05 I decided to jump on the bandwagon and get some 5150s for my rig.

We’ve tried for a couple of years to make it to the annual Superlift 4xAdventure they hold out at Barnwell Mountain in Gilmer, TX, but have always had something come up at the last minute that’s forced [...]

Mountain Off-Road Enterprises Torsion Rubber Motor Mounts

Installation date: 02/18/06 I’d known that my driver-side motor mount has been torn for about a year, I’d just never got around to replacing it because it really hadn’t caused any problems. But with a trip to Las Cruces coming up at the end of February, I figured it might be time to finally get [...]

ARB Recovery Bag

What can I say, I’m an ARB fanboy, always have been. And I’ve got a thing for recovery gear, so when ARB recently introduced their new recovery bags, I just had to have one. The new bags come in two sizes, small and large, and at the time of this article they sell for around [...]

Hot Springs Revisited, Octover 2005

After having such a blast on our Hot Springs run back in June we knew we had to go again soon, but not until the weather was cooler. Fall in Hot Springs has near-perfect weather for wheelin’, so we started planning another trip for October. Our local Jeep club, LoneStar Jeep Club, was also planning [...]
