    Re: Sound System

    I went thru Crutchfield.com. to install a new radio/gps/back up camera in my wife's corolla. I bought a kit specific to her car which made the new unit look factory. Price wasn't bad either.

    Re: Leaking blue rubber gasket on oil pan

    I used to have a cherokee that the oil pan bolts didn't like to stay tight so I'd check/snug them up with each oil change.

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    While I've seen it before I've never understood how a diff cover can rust thru when it's coated with oil. Gear oil does have a distinctive odor.

    Re: Wrangler bogging down

    A plugged catalytic convertor can cause loss of power [not saying that is your cause] but it would be something else to check out.

    Re: Rear drum brake repair on YJ

    Re: 4WD shifter bushing falling off help

    I just pressed it in with my fingers. The one under the jeep was more difficult - mainly because of the awkward position and working more by feel than sight.

    Re: 4WD shifter bushing falling off help

    If this is the one at the ends of the cable you probably don't have it completely seated. I had to replace them on my 2010 jk, it can be difficult to fully seat them but once on they don't come off...

    Re: 2015 Wrangler passenger door latch issues

    You need to remove the door panel to look/feel the connections. That should reveal the issue.

    Re: I bought a Grand Cherokee... I had to

    The oil gauge should always be the first suspect. I was ready to change the oil pump on a cherokee I used to have when I noticed it had the same low oil pressure when the engine was shut off.
