  2. I'm only familiar with CalMini Products and value the quality and engineering. Perhaps others can comment on the Rocky Road Outfitters suspension system?
  3. Today
  4. I've got a 1993 Sidekick 4x4 and want to upgrade the suspension. Anybody used any of the Rocky Road Outfitters suspension systems/shocks? Was going to order from CALmini but did a little research and found there are some issues with orders being fulfilled. Thanks

  6. You're welcome, Jay...Apparently there are some who are just installing the manual free-wheeling hubs without consideration for the actuator disconnect system. The anecdotal vote from Tracker owners at Amazon reviews seem upbeat on this subject. It's not clear how long they have tried this approach. Even DIY Metal Fabrication begins with just installing the manual free-wheeling hubs and not dealing with the actuator system. They went on to terminate the actuator, in their view, to eliminate a potential trouble area. They wanted to avoid replacing failed actuator pumps. However, for t
  7. Moses, Thanks for all the valuable info. That is more than I want to get myself into. Good points on towing...going to re-think traveling plans. I guess the old saying is correct. 'If it has 'T''s or tires, expect trouble'. Again, thanks for the info! Jay
  8. Bird 13...I went to lengths in search of a responsible example of installing free-wheeling hubs and exploring, actually eliminating, the actuator disconnect system. In a routine search, I found DIY Metal Fabrication. They do metal/mechanical work and approach their work responsibly. "Paul" offers comments, does the footwork and provides substantial illustrations. Eliminating the disconnect system is not simple if done correctly. Some forums discuss doing this impromptu or homespun, which may be okay for a trail buggy. For toting at interstate speeds behind a motorhome, the approach
  9. No...I have a 5 speed manual. I have heard of welding procedure. I guess what I am trying to figure out is what I have to do to flat tow this behind a motorhome. Bird 13
  10. Bird 13...Let's confirm this. Every hub source says its hubs "fit". But will they work with your powertrain design? In drilling down at the Warn official website, there are two hubs sets shown. One is a traditional flat flange with larger screws, the other is an internal, 35-spline design. Here is the link for Premium and Standard hubs, the MSRP is quite high, Amazon pricing reflected a strong discount...There are also less expensive brand hubs available in the market: https://www.warn.com/products-premium-manual-4wd-hubs. Confirm which hub style you have, internal spline (35 splin
  11. Thanks, Moses. I have installed free wheeling hubs on older Trackers. Reason I was asking, I talked to a Tracker/Sidekick Salvage yard and was told the newer ones (2nd Gen) are different and have an air assist to shift into four wheel drive and that you may have to modify before installing hubs. But told me to check with forums first to see if anyone has done that to a 2000 Tracker.
  12. Bird 13...There are a range of hubs and prices available. I have always used Warn hubs. Here is an example at Amazon, you can price shop from there. Any quality kit will include instructions on how to install the hubs. These are pricey; however, if you want to flat tow the Tracker, you do want durable, reliable hubs. If a hub becomes half engaged or seizes while towing, you would have a control and safety issue plus stress on the Tracker's front differential and driveline: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CQI06S/ref=au_as_r?_encoding=UTF8&Make=Chevrolet|47&Model=Tracker|50
  13. Greetings, I have a 2000 Tracker 2 door. Looking for manual locking hubs and what I have to change before installation. Want to be able to flat tow this vehicle. Thanks!
  14. Hi, Kdambrosio...Sounds like too much resistance in the wiring circuit, causing a false voltage signal. I would carefully disconnect the plugs to the PCM. Look for black oxidation. Use an electronic spray cleaner and not anything hard or abrasive to clean the contacts. Use dielectric grease to maintained a good seal when installing the connectors. Do not condemn the PCM just yet. If you need to go down that path, consider having your unit serviced rather than stepping up for a new PCM. Check the grounds in the circuits. This is ground to engine, ground to battery, ground to body.
  15. Hi all! I really need some help here. My husband and I are at our wits end. We have a new to us 2000 jeep wrangler, 2.5 manual. Since August when we purchased it we have only been able to drive it maybe 20-25 times. Everytime we have fixed/replaced something on it another problem comes up. So with that being said here's the newest of problems: We have an engine code p0505. Idle air control valve. We have cleaned the throttle body multiple times. Along with the iac sensor. We have replaced the iac sensor 3x with mopar sensors. At idle the engine reads 1000-1200 rpms. While driving the j
  16. Hi, irabrown73...Are you trying to place a value on the Scout and sell it? I can make some suggestions. Moses

  18. Can someone provide a good resource for Scout pricing? 1979 Harvestor Scout with SD33 Diesel engine, has not run in 10 to 15 yrs, lots of rust around wheel wells, and tires deflated.
  19. Hi, HaileyR...Welcome to the forums. Sounds like you identified the original problem: tires of a different diameter. You have corrected that issue now. The traction control threw a trouble code, which is indicated by the light coming on. First-off, the code needs to be cleared with a scan tool that can also troubleshoot the traction control circuit. If canceling the light with a scanner does not keep the light off, there would be a need for further troubleshooting. At this point, I would not anticipate that trouble or the potential cost involved. This system will go into a trouble
  20. Hey guys was wondering if I could have some advice , I put my spare wheel on the front drivers side of my 2016 JK. Ever since the traction control warning light (not the one that tells you if it’s on or off) has been permanently on. Also sometimes the brakes act like it’s on snow or ice. Since then we have bought 4 new tires so all 4 treads are identical wear. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks
  21. You're welcome, Pats73fan...Glad our exchanges are of value. The RH/RE transmissions are a breed of their own, widely used, and they need support! Thanks for the feedback... Moses
  22. racer55...Pleased that you found the part number. Always best if you can find the OEM part. Generic/industrial snap rings are available from MSC Direct or McMaster-Carr. Local hardware outlets have snap rings, however, the tensile is often unclear. Fastenal is a good resource, and its catalogs break down parts to the material composition, hardness and coating type. Accurate dimensions can usually turn up rings that fit properly. In your case, the ring should be the correct metric size. If you can find the actual OEM part by its number, that's a sure fit! For Trackers, you have the
  23. Thanks for the effort Moses,I found it for 2002 4dr tracker- 96057792
  24. Sounds like an effort to get better performance and reliability, Jsmes. This is a well tested EFI conversion. You have a fuel supply issue. The Howell kit, fortunately, has a provision for getting a code from the ECM. Bill Howell designed this system after a GM TBI setup, and it uses off-the-shelf OEM/stock replacement parts—presumably for the 4.3L TBI V-6 engines. This makes the system more reliable, and you can find replacement parts in an emergency. I would start by checking for stored trouble codes. This is simple enough with an inexpensive code reader from Harbor Freight
  25. I am the owner of a 1986 CJ7 I had everything rebuilt carburetor generator radiator blah blah blah put in a rebuilt motor I purchased. Wasn’t happy with carburetion so I added a Howell electronic feel ignition system . Now it runs great spontaneously it will start acting like it’s starving for fuel, check engine light coming on permanently or flashing at different times I can pretty much always do the speed limit and drive it but it will not always perform well
  26. Hi, BadDecisions...I'm not sure where wrecks2020 went with this project. We covered the VM and Dakota/Liberty components thoroughly. The changes involving CAN-Bus and other concerns deepened the project. Is your 2006 Dakota an automatic? If so, there is the PCM/TCM module issue discussed at length with wrecks2020. The Cummins engine is an option but very costly. A swap into a TJ Wrangler can run $16K-$20K with adapters, and this currently only works with a manual transmission. Advance Adapters took the Cummins to an AX15 adaptation (5-speed manual) then stopped there due to lack of
  27. wrecks 2020, did you ever do this project? How far did you get? Is there a blog of vlog I can see? Pictures? I'm considering this for a 2006 Dakota. Thanks
