    Secret X'er 2021

    This will be fun. Spent about an hour dumping ideas in my Amazon cart.

    Secret X'er 2021

    I’m in, makes it an even 10 and easier to pair up. My first year so, is the tradition to give reputable gifts? Or are we trying to make the family gasp when it’s opened? Maybe a box full of Jeep swag?

    Just to confirm, ‘cause I said see you at the lake. For the Dunklehollow group, we’re meeting at Sheetz at noon?

    Replace Battery Terminals, Battery & Alternator

    Thanks TerryD, makes perfect sense and what I was thinking needed to be done. I’m going to order another cable. I’ll ground the original replacement cable to the sensor mount and then from there to engine block with the new cable.

    Replace Battery Terminals, Battery & Alternator

    Bumping this question. I replaced the battery last week. Just had trouble starting again. It sat yesterday, the rest of the week I drove daily. Is this something from replacing the negative cable? Maybe my starter is going or time for new plugs?

    We’re in for this trip, no camping though. We’ll go up Dunklehollow and down Union Springs. See you at the lake.

    Saturday, November 20, 2021 - Xterra Trail Ride to Flagpole Knob (VA)

    I’m going to try, probably just a day trip though. All my camping gear is in storage, but may try to convince my son to just sleep in back with an air mattress. I have to re-arrange an appointment but can’t until next week when I see what my hours are.

    Replace Battery Terminals, Battery & Alternator

    Another question. The old battery cable was ground at the base of the voltage sensor bracket and again on the engine block. With the ne cable I grounded only to the engine block. Will this cause problems? I ask because I’ve had a couple small gremlins since replacing the terminals and cable. A...

    Gen X's 2010 S

    I know, I know, just get rid of the sway bar. But, with the second gen bigger and heavier than a first gen, I wanted to run it with the sway bar a bit for road stability. Maybe I’ll get quick disconnects at some point.

    Gen X's 2010 S

    Busy couple of days. Replaced the boots on my ball joints and installed rear sway bar re-locate blocks. Put my Rugged Rocks battery terminals on, they are nice. I replaced the negative cable with one from BatteryCables USA. I got the 14”, 2AWG marine cable. It just barely reached the battery, I...

    Replace Battery Terminals, Battery & Alternator

    No problem, if you did the same and still had enough cable then I should be fine as well. Thanks

    Replace Battery Terminals, Battery & Alternator

    Dang. I should have asked that question before ordering the cable. Glad I checked before ripping out the old one. I guess I can pull the ring off one end then re-crimp a new one. It’s such a nice looking cable, I don’t want to tear it up. I’ll hide my hack job at the engine end and put the nice...

    Replace Battery Terminals, Battery & Alternator

    My Rugged Rocks terminals showed up today, they are nice. Was going to install them and the new negative battery cable, but I don’t know how to get the new cable through the voltage sensor? I bought a cable with rings on each end, I don’t think the ring will fit through the sensor. @Zack. were...

    Need New Headlights

    Got the Nineos installed today. I didn’t realize the bulb separates from the fan so you can get the lock ring between the two. Hopefully they throw a nice pattern.

    Need New Headlights

    Headlights are on back order until January. So, I bought the Nineo 9007s and a headlight restoration kit for a temp fix. The kit cleaned up the lights quite a bit, I’m impressed. Got a bit on the bumper plastic but I already ordered a new bumper in Sep so I wasn’t being careful. For the...
