What did you do to your Jeep today?

Recommended Posts

Drove the Jeep to the parts store to get a battery for the car 🚗. Got to drive the car for the first time in 5 months.

Ongoing woodworking projects.....

I put the finishing touches on this lightweight rear overhead storage rack this week.

Pine board, stained black, HD zip-tied to roll bar in my 2-door. Probably good for about 50lbs of gear. It’s got a hinged back half for easy access.

If passengers need that headroom I can release the zip ties and flip it on top of the bars.

Did what I could to put the air filter back in it's home. Cleaned the rust off the cage and repainted.  Fluid things.

Still been trying to pinpoint a grind/rattle noise from under the Jeep. I had thought it was the front drive shaft, but pulled that off on Sunday and the noise is still there. I did notice that my trans mount bushings are a little off, going to re-center that. But I think I narrowed down the noise to my skid getting pushed up against the exhaust piping.

I had a great one.  I was towing heavy with the Jeep a few years back.  I was on the parkway when a buzzing sound happened at a certain RPM.  It wasn't speed sensitive or load sensitive after that.  I thought it was a crank bearing, input shaft bearing or, worse, one of the TVS screws in the blower. A stethoscope to the crank, blower, etc. revealed nothing. No one could figure it out.  It all became clear when a frustrated Chuck at Globex kicked the underside of the Jeep when it was in the air....only to hear a slight rattle from the muffler.  I had slightly bashed the can and one of the baffles got loose and turned into a reed, so when just the right velocity air passed over it (meaning a specific RPM) it created a loud buzz.  A fun one for the databank.
