Yep..both some new stuff. Are there directions or a diagram for the install for my 2006 Jeep Wrangler X?
Yes...I am new at this. I added a Jeep Grille overlay which looks great and a new bumper. When the weather gets warmer I plan on installing a safari style bikini and a deck cover. This new "toys" can become a money pit..but I do love it so.........Pushing 60...feel like 18 again.

I'm 68 and can relate on the feel like 18. I have had my 2000 sport for seven years now. I will keep it as long as I can climb in it. I live in the Chicago area and have had the top down twice so far this spring. It has gone up and down so much the zippers on the windows are worn out.
Seems like I get a lot of stares at times, people wondering what that old man in that Jeep is grinning about. They will never know.

I have a 2002 4wd Jeep Wrangler X with 59K miles that when driving in 4th or 5th gear and am approaching a stop sign or have to slow down and I put it in neutral, I hear a "clunk" coming from the floor on the passenger side. Without having it checked, I have been told it could be a ball joint or mounting joint. Any suggestions on what it could be before I take it to a dealer and have to pay an enormous amount for a checkup?

Would you believe that my name is Terry too? Small world. There are not many of us around.

Could be a 'U' joint or maybe an engine mount. However, I can't really be definitive at this distance.
You shouldn't have to pay very much for an analysis, in fact some dealers will do that at no charge, as will most independent shops.

Thanks, I'm going to inquire and suggest its a U joint problem and see what they say.

I recently bought a 2003 Jeep Rubicon and it has developed a shacking the drive train. I took it to a front end specialist. They determined that the shacking was called a 'castor shack" but were unable to fix it does any one have any suggestions to fix it. Also there is a button under the stereo labeled axel lock. I had that checked too and they said the button was broke but they put the axel in the locked position. Does that have any thing to do with the shacking?
