    Tools - don't forget what they are for!

    Old, but just too funny not to keep around here: Tools explained. DRILL PRESS : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had...

    Riddle me this?

    The vehicle in question is a 95 LWB Classic, but I decided to stick it here for more opinions. The issue: something that manifests itself like a wheel shimmy. Caveats: it comes and goes, and rarely if never - in a turn. Almost always - during straight-ahead driving. Alignment - nearly perfect...

    LED third brake light in a Classic

    Has anyone heard of any options? I am tired of seeing that shapeless blob on the upper tailgate, and replacing the bulbs after so many slams.

    Is there such a thing as a non-leaking steering box?

    It is a rhetorical question - I know the boxes are nice and dry in my jeep (a "76-series" Saginaw box) and one of the 95 RRCs. The others (LR4 excluded) leak. Not a whole lot, but enough to spot the brand new garage apron. I know that Meridian rebuilds are a dead end - even when they don't...

    How on earth do you...

    ... remove the ABS brain box on a D1? Does the bottom lip of the dashboard (where the glovebox attaches) come off? Edit: Never mind, page 70-22 of workshop manual. I know what it says, but I still can't see how it will come out. Edit: It does, like a charm. The ABS light is off, I guess until...

    Fuel pump or harness?

    2010 LR4 - died today in the middle of nowhere. Spit out codes P0232 and P025C - both related to fuel pump, and both kind of hint of a short in the fuel pump circuit. The fuel pump 25A fuse is blown; replaced, blown again within a second of ignition-ON. The engine almost starts and dies...
