I put a scoop on my CJ (built 360, stock radiator) because I needed additional cooling... I had too much power.

I cut a 9" hole in the hood and covered it with a forward facing (home-made) scoop.

Back to the pinging. My '88 does the same thing. It did it when I bought the Jeep. It still does it. I had the 360...

I've only seen high bills for this kind of work. The reasons I've heard (from installers and those who don't) have been related to insurance. Evidently these guys who do suspension mods pay hefty...

Thanks for the CJ tip!
I kind of figured the shocks to be part of the problem or at least the next problem. That was the case with my CJ - flexy springs, then the swaybar, then the shocks, then the...

I did a rattle can paint job on my CJ. The reasons for doing this were as follows: The Jeep would contact trees, rocks, etc. AND CJs have no straight panels. This was crucial. Painting an FSJ...

porkchops' right about the 3" springs - Rough Country makes a kit for GWs. I've had mine for a year or so. They're good, not great, a little stiff on the road, good off-road.

My GW is doing similar things (in addition to the towing thing). All over town, it's great - I can "stomp it" and almost spin the tires. I'm usually the first one away from the light (as long as no...

The downside about the receiver hitch is that I use it a lot.

I'm afraid that bolting to the gate will destroy the gate - especially off-road... a lot of shaking.
