I just got a 2002 Wrangler Sahara. This is my first jeep and it has been a lot of trouble but working with the dealership we have gotten it all cleared up because it is still under warranty! The CD player is a single cd player that was replaced two weeks ago by the dealership. It plays all store bought cds but it will not play my computer burned cds. Does anyone know if this is this common? Is is just some kinds of files?

This is common with the early units unfortunately. Some types of discs will play, but usually not consistantly.
As we've all been explaining our user names recently, would you like to do the same?

Thanks Mac and Tom, I'll look for some PB Blaster. One of the first purchases I made when I bought the Rubi was a good set of Craftsman torx sockets. I love any reason to buy a new tool! As my used one time Makita hand sander will attest. I don't think I totally stripped the one bolt so I'm hoping it's not a complete loss.
Oh, yeah, on the door rattle front. Turns out is was the wire for the satellite antennae under the door sill. Can you believe it? One little wire made all the racket. Tonight my seven-year-old daughter wanted to confirm that tomorrow when I take her and her friend to the amusement park we would take my Jeep.

Well...A is for Amanda...vampire because at the time it was in October and I had a pair of those fake glue on fangs that I would wear...and girl because i am a girl. Plus it is an easy user name to remember, it is my aol screen name.
Thanks for the cd info. I was sooo ticked because I had them replace it (under warranty) because I could not get any of my burned cds to work. I really dont buy cds anymore because i just download everything. But a friend and I leave for 7 weeks in the jeep going cross country from atlanta to san fransico so I had to pull together all the 'real' cds i had.

I've not had any problems with any of the CD's I've burned. I've got an 04 wrangler, stock stereo
have you tried any CDs that someone else burned using a different program?
I use Easy CD Creator 5 Basic

No, the friend I am traveling with is going to bring a few cds she burned just to try. I have used the Easy Creator 5 and another program too but nothing. We then thought that maybe it cant play mp3s but i converted them to wav files and it did nothing. Its strange but when I was going though my favorite made cds, I am across 2 that will play. Looks like we will be listening to The Cure mix and a work out mix. I will have to play with it more when i get back!
#17807 of 23397 Come wheel with me!

This is an open invitation to all you Jeep Buds. If you can somehow get yourselves over to western KY, I would be honored to serve as your trail guide at Turkey Bay. I would love to see you guys who have never been off road learn what your Jeeps are capable of doing. But, even if you are a seasoned off roader, I would still enjoy meeting you and wheelin' with you at Turkey Bay.
Turkey Bay is just about the perfect place for people to wheel Jeeps that are stock or near stock. There are some fun obstacles that won't tear up your Jeep, and there is some really nice scenery. The Kentucky Lake area has attractions for the whole family. There is horseback riding, a planetarium, a buffalo and elk range, fishing, camping, and a nice water park to name a few.
Wherever you go wheelin', a local guide who knows where all the fun spots are and where the places to stay away from are makes all the difference in the world. I'm that guy when it comes to Turkey Bay.
No, I don't guide for money. It's just something I enjoy. If you have a good time and want to buy my dinner, I might let ya do that.
I firmly believe that if you drove 8 hrs to get there for just one full day of wheelin', you would say it was well worth it.
Have you hugged your Jeep today?
This pic shows the Old Tomster and Ross Allen taking Thelma Jane through a fun little spot that flexes the suspension pretty good. All the weight of the Jeep is on the right front and left rear tires, and she was actually teetering. If you could see the left front, you would see that the axle is fully drooped on that side, with the tire off the ground.
#17808 of 23397 doorless / no mirrors?
Jun 04, 2005 (5:06 am)
most of the jeeps I see that have the doors off have no side mirrors, I've heard thats illegal in most states, and besides that I use my side mirrors alot.
curious of your thoughts on the different "doors off" mirrors.

Well, I appreciate your frankness! Althought I'm deeply hurt at the thought I have no literary imagination (Kidding, of course).
I, too, wanted something synomous with the "X", but as you say, choices are limited.
Now I've come up with "X-Rated" ....and if you want to read anything into that with respect to my, um....choice of fine art films...who am I to stop you???!!!
By the way....mine is coming with the 7-additional speaker soundbar, which I've not read much about. Any thoughts as to this being a nice/cool option?
Thanks....Hope everyone's Saturday is safe and tops down!

Sounds like you're burning the computer-file-type songs to the CD. What you have to do is burn the CD as an "Audio CD". This will limit you to 12-15 tracks, as that file type takes a BUNCH more space on the disc. Then, your burning program will "finish" the disc out as an audio CD. Newer players can usually handle a "folder"-style CD with a bunch of WMA, MP3, WMV, or whatever on it, but older players are a no-go. Just look in your burning software's help files for "make an audio CD".
Sorry, I'm a professional nerd, so I couldn't resist...
