Re: Badlands Trip 11/23

Hello and welcome to the forum! The badlands off-road park is a great place for jeepers of all skill levels. They have a little bit of everything (hills, sand, rock, mud and water). Our trips out there vary every time. Unfortunately I will not be able to go on this trip as I will be out of town. And...

Re: 98 4.0 lower radiator hose

From what your describing, it does sound like a water pump. It is not too bad of a job to do. That video should help a little. Just take your time and you will be fine. (I know it is easier said than done.)

Re: 98 4.0 lower radiator hose

Ok, now that we have a little more information, we can get you headed in the right direction. The lower radiator hose connects the radiator to the water pump. Before you dive in and replace that, rent the pressure tester from the auto parts store. There are several places in the small area around th...

Re: 98 4.0 lower radiator hose

Hi Matt, Welcome to the forum! Most of us in the jeep club work on our own vehicles so recommending a repair facility might be a little difficult. But we do have a good knowledge base so hopefully that will help you. Coolant leaks can be annoying and frustrating to find. But I am confident that you ...

The trails will most likely be a little muddy. The fellowship will be fun! So let’s meet down at Dukes at 9:30 and ha...

Re: Jeep value

John, Is this a vehicle that you are looking to buy or sell? If you are looking to sell, I can come and take a look at it and maybe get you a better number. I don't know off the top of my head what a good price would be for that vehicle to buy. I would have to see it, note the options, then start re...

I have enjoyed going to Fulton, so it might be a good replacement for Potawatomi. Looks like it could be very muddy though. But the only way to find out is to go and check it out.
