I don't recall asking for your opinion on whether this should be done, nor did I ask for your uninformed legal advice.

This is actually something I've been researching myself, as part of a potential 4x4 swap on my '05 QCSB, though I wouldn't even bother with trying to attach factory brackets for this. I'll also be...

I have a '05 QCSB Hemi 2WD, at the moment is bone stock other than a tire/wheel change. Came with the 20" "flower petal" wheels stock, and have since replaced them with 17" stock steelies with...

It's driveable as is, and I've run some trails, but I wouldn't want to DD it like this. Heck, if I didn't have to get it through emissions just to renew the stinking plate, I probably wouldn't even...

I have a computer for a automatic now, as that's what came in the Jeep, and it runs like crap. Doesn't idle well, stalls frequently, running pig rich, etc. Plus, if I have a CEL on, then it's a...

5.9 flywheel balance....sooo confused!

OK, maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit :P

I'm putting a 5 speed manual behind the 5.2 Magnum in my Grand Cherokee to replace the fried automatic. Sourcing a 5.2 flywheel has been a bit hard in the...
