Jeep TJ Mods & Installation Write-Ups

I bought my 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ-Sport new and completely stock from the dealer back in November 1999. Since that time, I have made a number of modifications, upgrades and additions to improve the capability of my Jeep. Most of these I have documented to the best of my ability with detailed photographs and have made them available as installation write-ups here on my website. It is my sincerest hope that they will be able to help you out as you journey down the road of building up your Jeep. Please feel free to contact me by email with any questions you might have.

Suspension & Steering

Full Traction Suspension Long Arm Lift Kit Full Traction Suspension 6" Long Arm Lift Kit
05/16/06
Unlike any other kit I have seen to date, what drew me to the Full Traction Suspension Long Arm Lift Kit was its true 4-link front end design (as opposed to radius arms like so many other manufacturers use today) and its awesome tri-link rear end design that effectively eliminates the need for a rear track bar. Also, having seen this kit up close and in person at the 2005 SEMA show, I knew that the materials used, quality of the welds, level of detail, craftsmanship and finish were all unsurpassed by anything else out there. Add all that to the fact this lift is a completely bolt on kit, I was sold.
Off Road Only SwayLOC Off Road Only SwayLOC
Dual Rate Anti-Sway Bar System

09/23/05
Over the years, I have owned and used several different makes of sway bar link disconnects. All of them did their job well enough and some better than others. However, all of them also had their share of drawbacks too like needing to be on level ground in order to disconnect and reconnect the links. Or, the mushy unstable feel they give when your Jeep is on off-camber sections of a trail. One solution I had seriously considered was to install a Currie Anti-Rock system on my Jeep, but the thought of a single rate anti-sway bar that was more geared for the trail than the road made me shy away from it. That's when I came across the Off Road Only SwayLOC dual rate anti-sway bar system.
Nth Degree Mobility Quicksilver
Sway Bar Disconnects

07/11/05
After lifting my Jeep for the 3rd time, my old JKS Quicker Disconnects were just a little too short for my application and no longer usable. When I started to look around for a new set to replace them, I came across the Nth Degree Mobility Quicksilver Sway Bar Disconnects. What attracted me most about these discos were the fact that they had no loose parts to deal with and best of all, they are designed to be able to reconnect anywhere including uneven surfaces!!
Nth Degree Mobility Shock Shifters
03/27/05
Relocate your axle mounts and shift them outboard by 5" providing more clearance under the rear axle and effectively solve the problem of your shock cans making contact with the lower spring perch caused by a lift and/or by a raised-pinion.
Walker Evans Racing Shocks
03/01/05
If you are in the market for a great set of shocks and comfort is paramount to price. I would highly recommend getting a set of Walker Evans Racing Shocks. They just might be the last shocks you will ever have to buy.
Off Road Only (ORO) Jeep TJ
U-Turn Steering System Installation

02/24/05
When you're ready to upgrade your Jeep TJ's steering system to something a lot more heavy duty, look no further than to Off Road Only.
Rubicon Express 3.5" Jeep TJ
Super Flex Suspension Lift

02/02/05
Looking to grow your Jeep up and make it more capable on the trail but can't decide on which lift kit to get? Well, I would highly recommend getting a Rubicon Express 3.5" Super Flex Suspension Lift. With the exception of new and longer shocks, this kit pretty much comes with everything you need to get your Jeep lifted over 3".
Currie Rear Lower Shock Mount
Extension Brackets

07/10/04
After installing a 3" lift or more, your shock cans will make contact with the lower spring perches on your axle. Fix this problem by installing a set of Currie rear lower shock mount extension brackets.
Basic Front End Alignment
11/17/03
After installing a lift on your Jeep, it is important to have your front end aligned before you drive anywhere. Failure to do so will result in severe tire wear and/or death wobble.
Air Lift Suspension
10/30/03
Does the rear end of your Jeep sag when loaded up with gear and/or family? What you need is a little help from an Air Lift suspension.
Rancho Steering Stabilizer
10/29/03
After installing a tall lift and bigger tires, it's a good idea to upgrade your factory steering stabilizer with something a little more heavy duty.
JKS Bar Pin Eliminators - Rear Set Only
10/23/03
Factory bar pins are a lousy design that can cause your bushing to come out of the shocks or create annoying thumping from slack. BPE's compress your bushings for a proper fit and are a great replacement to your factory set.
Doetsch Tech DT-8000 Pre-Runner Shocks
10/22/03
Looking for a new set of shocks that provide a great ride and not too expensive? Well, I would recommend getting a set of DT-3000's. However, if you're anything like me and prefer firmer ride without busting your kidneys, I would highly recommend getting a set of DT-8000's.
TeraFlex Adjustable Front Track Bar
Rebuild & Installation

10/01/03
After installing a 3" or greater lift, it is a good idea to relocate your front track bar or install an adjustable one. If you don't like drilling any more holes in your Jeep than you need to, then an adjustable track bar is for you.
3" Mix-n-Match Budget Lift
08/13/03
Fortunately for us, we live in the era of the internet where information is abundant and a good deal can always be found. It has taken me almost two years to do but a lot of the parts I needed to do this lift, I actually got for FREE. The rest of the parts I found in the "Used" forums and a few I bought new.

Update 09/27/03 - One month later review and I replace my BDS shocks for a set of Doetsch Tech DT8000's.
JKS Swaybar Quick Disconnects
05/06/03
Disconnecting your swaybar is a great way to increase the amount of axle articulation you have on your Jeep (vertical wheel travel). This helps you to keep all four of your tires on the ground in very rough and uneven terrain. In my humble opinion, JKS makes one of the highest quality and easiest to use quick disconnects around.
Transfer Case Drop Write-Up
01/19/02
Get rid of your slight drive line vibes by lowering your transfer case skid plate a bit using some washers. This is a cheap, quick and easy fix.
Rubicon Express 2" Budget Boost

As is the case with most rocker guards today, the Trail Boss mounts directly to your Jeep's rocker panels for optimal clearance and has the added feature of a squared off bulge providing superior rock protection but also also doubles as a convenient side step for the vertically challenged among us.

Got oversized tires and no way to carry a full size spare? Then you need a LoD bumper/tire carrier system. This thing is extremely beefy, well built, can hold up to a 37" tire, has two shackle mounts, a trailer hitch and it's completely rattle free. The best part.... it only costs $339!!
Skid Row Engine Skid Plate
05/14/03
I would be the first to admit that buying something mundane like a skid plate can be pretty hard to do especially when you are trying to save up for a new lift and/or bigger tires. However, protecting the vital underside of your Jeep should be top on your list. Along with your gastank, your oil pan is grossly exposed to the rocks and needs to be protected. I chose this skid plate because it came highly recommended by those who own one, it's affordability and ease to install. Everything bolts right up and no drilling is required.

Update 06/25/03 - How do you change your oil filter without making a big mess? Make a drip pan for your skid plate!! Details at the bottom of this write-up.

Budget Homemade Doorless Mirror Mounts
09/29/04
If you haven't figured it out by now, Jeeps were made to be driven topless and doorless. Going topless is easy enough to do but unfortunately, going doorless will also leave you mirrorless. This would otherwise be no big deal except for the fact that most states will require you to have at least a driver side external mirror.
Raingear Jeep Cab Cover - TJ
08/03/04
If you like to keep your Jeep topless but can't fit it into the garage, you need to get yourself a Raingear cab cover. This cover fits like a glove, goes all the way down to the bottom of your doors and does a great job of keep the elements out of your Jeep including rain!!

Warn 6" Fender Flares
03/24/04
I'm not sure about the rest of you, but after installing my 33x12.50's I was rather tired of eating mud when I took my doors off during the summer months. I didn't mind the look of the tires sticking out roughly an inch, but the constant mud slinging got old.

Coil Rail Replacement 2000-06 Jeep TJ Wrangler Coil Rail Replacement
12/18/06
Unlike older Jeep's that have a distributor and individual wires that connect to each spark plug on your engine, Jeep TJ Wranglers made between 2000-06 were built with no distributor and have a one piece spark or coil rail assembly that contains 3 coil packs that are built right into it.
CPS Jeep TJ Wrangler
Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement CPS

12/16/06
There are several reason why you would need to replace your Jeep TJ Wrangler's Crankshaft Position Sensor (or CPS for short) with the most obvious one being that your 'check engine' light has illuminated and a quick check with an OBDII reader indicates you have thrown an MIL code.
Fan Clutch Replacement Jeep TJ Wrangler Fan Drive Viscous Clutch
Replacement - 2000-06 w/4.0L Engine

08/27/06
The fan drive viscous clutch (or fan clutch for short) is a silicon fluid filled coupling with a bimetallic coil that is attached to your Jeep's fan. When working properly, the fan clutch will react to the heat discharging from you radiator by spinning faster or slower depending on the cooling needs of your engine. Need I say, it is critical that your Jeep's fan clutch is in proper working order to prevent over heating.
Clutch Replacment 1997 Jeep TJ Clutch Replacement
06/23/06 - Written By: Kevin aka - 4x4moxie
The procedure documented below is a reflection of our experience doing a clutch replacement on a '97 Jeep TJ. We spent 15 hours spread across 2 days. Prepare to spend this or more if you're not experienced with this complexity of work.
Oxygen Sensor Replacement
1999-00 Jeep TJ w/4.0L Engine (CA Emissions)

10/05/05
As a part of routine maintenance, it is important to replace the oxygen sensors on your Jeep TJ once it hits 100,000 mile. Even if your engine seems to be running fine, a new set of oxygen sensors will help provide good fuel economy and restore any lost engine power you weren't even aware was gone in the first place.
GSP Power Spacers Throttle Body Spacer
06/10/05
A loss in power and performance in a Jeep is a very common problem especially if you are running larger than stock tires on a 2.5L engine or a 4.0L engine with stock 3.73 gears or worse, 3.07's. Well, if you're looking for a little more horse power to help you out until you can afford new gears, I would recommend installing a throttle body spacer.
Alloy USA Dana 30 Front Axle Tube Oil Seals
04/12/05
I don't know who the brain child was that decided it would be a good idea to leave the front axle of Jeep TJ's completely open to the elements (okay, there is a piece of plastic there but it really does little more than keep stones out), but I'm glad to know that there's a company like Alloy USA to provide solution for it.
Advance Adapters Slip Yoke Eliminator (AA SYE)
& CV Drive Shaft Installation on a Jeep TJ

02/13/05
Whenever you lift a Jeep TJ above 2" (and sometimes even just 2"), your drive line will be off enough to cause what is known as drive line vibrations or "vibes" for short. Because of this, most lift kits will include a transfer case skid plate lowering kit to help restore your drive lines back to or at least closer to stock. For the most part, this will do the trick but then you have to ask yourself, do I really want to lower the very part of my Jeep that I just spent a boat load of money to raise up?
Heavy Duty All Metal 3-Core Radiator

M.O.R.E. 1" Bombproof Motor Mount Lift
08/19/03
If you've just lifted your Jeep 3" or more, you will most likely experience vibrations coming from your driveline. The cheap way to fix this is problem is to add a transfer case drop and the best way to fix it is to install a Slip Yoke Eliminator & CV driveshaft. However, there is a solution somewhere in between the two and that is to install a 1" motor mount lift.
Changing Your Sparkplugs
07/18/03
Your sparkplugs should be replaced as part of every tune-up (30,000 miles) and if you have a 2000+ TJ with a 4.0L engine, this is a really simple task.

Do It Yourself Maintenance

Jeep Rear Drum Brake Shoe Removal and Installation Jeep TJ Wrangler Rear Drum Brake
Removal/Installation and Adjustment

06/19/06
Service your rear drum brakes and replacing the factory brake shoes is one of the cheapest maintenance jobs you can do on your Jeep. However, it is kind of a pain in the rear to do. Not that it's exactly complicated or difficult to do per se, it does require a certain amount of brute strength and patience to deal with myriad of heavy springs you will have to remove and reinstall. As with anything you do on your Jeep, having the right tools can make all the difference.

Bleeding Your Brakes
11/28/03
Air bubbles trapped in your braking system can cause your brake pedal to feel excessively soft or cause it to go clear to the floor without any resistance or stopping power.
Goodrich Stainless Steel Extended Brake Lines
11/27/03
Once your Jeep starts to reach the 3" and higher range, your OEM brake lines will be at about their max length. While you might be okay driving along the pavement, you run the risk of damaging them while flexing out on the trail.
Basic Front End Alignment
11/17/03
After installing a lift on your Jeep, it is important to have your front end aligned before you drive anywhere. Failure to do so will result in severe tire wear and/or death wobble.
Changing Your Sparkplugs
07/18/03
Your sparkplugs should be replaced as part of every tune-up (30,000 miles) and if you have a 2000+ TJ with a 4.0L engine, this is a really simple task.
Differential Fluid Change Service
For Dana 30, Dana 35, Dana 44

07/14/03
Changing the fluid in your Jeep's differentials is important part of routine maintenance. New gear oil will insure your differentials will be properly lubricated but taking the time to pop open the cover will also gives you a chance to inspect the gears within it for any damage or unsual wear. As I like to say, better to catch a potential problem in the garage than having to figure out how to fix it on the trail.

Off Road Only X-Line High Temperature
Synthetic Winch Rope

05/09/05
By far, one of the best advancements in off road technology has been the introduction of synthetic winch rope. Any which way you look at it, synthetic winch rope is stronger, lighter and safer than steel cable not to mention it floats too. However, there is one thing one should take into consideration when purchasing synthetic winch rope and it's not cost.... it's heat.

Quick Air 2 - Under the Hood Install
10/14/04
One of the best ways to significantly improve your Jeeps performance on the trails is to air your tires down. Lower air pressure will allow your tires to have a greater foot print which will give you a lot more traction on sand, snow and rocks. The only real problem with this is that once you get back on pavement, you will need to air them back up. When you're riding on tires 31 inches or taller, filling each one back up to 30± psi from 10 psi can take forever. That's why I choose to invest in a Quick Air 2.
