with auto, 30" wheel group. Have nearly 3000 miles. 800 miles on long trip. Have had no problems with my Wrangler. I sold a 1994 4C, 5sp . Never had problem with that Jeep other then a Cat Convert. was replaced under warranty. There is no comparison between 2000 and 1994. The ride is so much smoother, the hard doors, even with the hard top off help alot to cut down on noise. My son thinks the 2000 is "to nice" "to pretty". He thinks rough ride and Jeep Wrangler should be interchangable. I hope my luck with the Wrangler continues. I know from my sister the horror of the newer JGC's, talk about quality control!!!! By the way I passed on a 1999 JGC, bought a Lexus RX 300, no problems with that choice, quality. Bottom line, I love my Wrangler. Get the 6C, hard doors, with the soft top and get the hard top. I never thought I would like the auto, ordered it because it was "free" and re resale consideration. Slap me, maybe I'm getting old but I really like the auto with the 6C. Just my opinion. Thanks.
I just bought a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport and I am unfamiliar as to how I can remove the doors. I think I know how to, but I didn't want to break anything by fiddling with it. Can anyone advise me on how to remove the doors without breaking the glass and scratching the paint?
Thanks in advance,
also, the website is www.jcwhitney.com , jeepguy69 forgot the h...quadratec.com is good too...
thanks for the help
I don't want any box in the trunk because it's an invitation for thieves.
It costed me $220 and I installed them my self.
I personnally like that idea because I always keep a cup with loose change for the tools and parking. It leaves me with the 2 front holders, one for my cell phone and one for my cofee.
As far as the instruments, they relocated the head lights and the fog lights all in one with your blinkers. I think the numbers are a little bigger, but you get the same instruments.
Also, drove a 4 cyl automatic. What a dog. Absolutely no pick up on the expressway. Had to keep it alnost floored to do 70. The shift from 2nd to 3rd was at almost 5000 rpms. Sounded like it was going to explode. Need an automatic and would love not to spend the $3K premium for the Sport. After the test drive, I don't think I have an option,
It's only a matter of preferences...
Let me give you an advice to keep your plastic windows looking like new for a long time. Never use soap or windex on your windows. Rinse them off with water, let them dry and then use "Pledge with lemon" inside and outside with a very soft 100% cotton rag. NO paper towels.
Also store them as flat as possible. I store my rear side windows under the back seat. I lift and flip the back seat, lay them flat and then put the seat back in place. There's just enough space betweeen the floor and the bottom of the rear seat. Don't roll them up.
If you do that, your windows are gonna look like new for a long time.
A second question, as far as tires and wheeld go I am currently looking at BG Goodrich all-terrain tires and American Racing wheels. Are these good choices for the jeep. And what are some other good choices to look at?
I went with 33 X 12.5 X 15 Dunlop Mud Terrain. A little loud, but great for off-road. I also went with the American Racing steel rims ... have been working out great.
I have had the upgrade for about three months .. and would not have done anything different.
I found the Cobra 75WXST.
It's perfect for the TJ. Everything is in the microphone. When your done you can just disconnect and store it away in your locking box.
I'm also gonna put a K40 antenna but I'm not sure where I should mount it.
Any input would be appreciated.
Did you get your Jeep yet? Is it on the train?
Here is a link to install I used.
I am having problems with my setup. I think I just need to tune my antenna. It works just have a high swr rating. I have a 3ft firestick
Think about it, what do you do if you hear an alarm going off in the parking lot? Usually look away.
I would love to come up with a way of releasing pepper spray, maze and tear gas inside the vehicle when someone tries to steal it. If he doesn't exit the vehicle within one minute, a needle would come out of the seat and puts him asleep for a couple hours. The doors would then become lock and impossible to open from the inside.
Food for tought...
I think I watched too many James Bond movies...
I've wanted a Jeep for as long as I can remember; I finally decided that it was time to get one. Besides, my 92 Saturn with 202,000 miles is running out of steam, and I need a new ride.
I truly hope I don't get a POS. For the money I spent it had better be perfect! Is that too much to expect from a Wrangler??? The only other Chrysler product I've ever owned was an 87 Omni which, other than the 2.2 engine (which after 160,000 miles ran like new), was pretty much junk. I know I can't compare an Omni to a Jeep...or can I?
It takes a certain level of class to express yourselves with respect for others.
I would get D44 axle and track-lok if you plan on off-roading.
I like to compare dealership prices to the jeeps in classifieds. Find a similiar one and see how close they are.
Have you tried another dealership?
any suggestions with this purchase I can't decide what pros and cons should I take into account?
I would really appreciate some input.
I did not know that which is very valuable since I live in everchanging Kansas and could be a problem. Other than that the jeep's in perfect shape body wise but I still don't know how the automatics run compared to the manual? But thanks for the knowledge.
After a few minutes of normal driving, it will usually go away by it self. Or if I turn off the engine and let it cool down, then it will be OK.
I need to remind you, I live in South Florida and it's very hot 90-95F. I don't think it should matter...
I called my service manager and explained the problem. He doesn't know what I'm talking about. Since it's an intermitent problem, I'm afraid it might be very difficult to find.
Second, onlyinajeep, is yours a manual or auto?
ps-someone asked "why not buy a new one?", and I just don't have that much money to spend(even on a great jeep!).
When this happens and I'm sitting at a light, the Rpm won't jump up at all. It stays normal at 1000.
You know the way your motor sounds when you're on 4L. It sounds really strong with a lot of torque and low acceleration.
That's exactly the way mine sounds, when I'm on 2H. So when this happens, I'll be shifting around 1800 or so because I don't want to break anything or make it worst.
Like I said, it will go away by itself after a few minutes.
I also looked at all my instruments, and they're all normal.
If, as dpage says, he has the symptoms while revving the engine at a light, then it's not related to the clutch or gearbox. If the clutch was slipping there would be a rise in engine rpm and a lack of acceleration, but the vehicle would have to be moving to demonstrate this.
So, the most likely culprit for an increase in engine noise, together with a lack of power, would be either an exhaust leak or an intake leak. The higher the temperature the greater the likelyhood of mating surfaces warping. The I-6 has had a history of broken exhaust manifolds in the past, but from the way you describe the noise I would guess at an intake leak being the most likely cause.
Does that sound as though it makes sense to you? It's something that's easily fixed in either case, and will be covered by warranty anyway. Make sure to let us all know how you get on.
Fan probably takes about 10 hp to run, so your engine will give you much less acceleration.
The newer fan clutches use a silicone fluid which "gells" at a very small temp change, like between 205 and 210F. The engine computer might detect this load and increase the throttle setting to maintain idle. Everything is working correctly.
Idling or high load conditions (up hill, towing) will raise the temp under the hood.
Do I win the nickel?
