in ripping off a fender xing water that is, oh and by the way, I slid down a canyon only stopping when a tree partially tore off my fender and broke the windshield....was strapped out after chainsawing the tree from around the axle....both were covered under warranty, they even buffed out the "pinstripes"...and yea the stock skids aint bad either.....:beer:
I can't belive the JK is such a POS that the plastic held on by plaistc push pins cheap airdam got ripped off when you hit it on something offroad. How dare they. BTW you'd be amazed at what water being force fed into plastic parts will do to them. especially when they are held on by other plastic parts.
hell ya how dare they not make stock parts not able to handle wimpy offroading like the hammers:laughing: all joking aside to the op rip the air damn off go with an aftermarket fenders lift it and get on with it:beer:
ok fine, ill be nice to the new guy.
the air damn is only held on by plastic clips and will fall off the first chance it gets, just rip it off all the way, it looks stupid anyway.
now there is a chance the innder fender wasnt on all the way, my first jk was that way, missing all the bolts and some of the push pins, stick your head under there and look to see whats loose and fix it, if your gonna go wheeling in a jk you better learn to fix stuff, cause the jk has alot of plastic and plastic doesnt like rocks.
I got stuck in deep water last year and flooded my interior. Grr... flooding, I'm going to get an H1 at military auction.
Ok enough with the ripping on the OP.
The air dam is a crock. Rip that thing off and be happy about it. I tore mine off the first night I had the JK (on a fallen log). The inner fender liner I would be mildly irritated about. The dealer probably screwed up. A while ago the inner fender liners on most JKs (mine included) had to be trimmed to avoid rubbing the brake line. They probably tore the clips and didn't replace em.
If you've owned some form of Jeep in the past you should be acquainted with "trail modifications". In the three years I've owned mine I have become well acquainted with the mechanics that work in the woods.
Not sure if this belongs here or in modified tech, so here goes. I just ordered a new pair of sliders from VKS fab that are frame mounted and can be either drilled or welded. After talking to Vick at VKS I decided to weld because I was under the impression that it would provide better overall...
I was wondering: some Wrangler JK online retailers say "with air conditioning".
Does it mean that there are two different serpentine belts? Will that one work if a Wrangler JK doesn't have A/C?
It's a bit confusing.
Engine light came on. It started to idle rough. I got code P0301. Took it to stealership since it is under the powertrain warranty and they told me it is not covered. Does anyone have any advice on where to learn on how to change fuel injectors?
Thanks in advance!

I have a 2014 automatic unlimited rubicon with a teraflex 3" full 8 flexarm lift kit, 35" tires and I am going to install Yukon 4.88 R&P.
Should I install a transmission cooler. I have been reading some threads regarding an over heating problem. And if so, any recommendations?
