I was just signing on to make this thread. Just picked up a 2006 TJ yesterday and need somewhere to ask noob questions. Only have one picture at the moment but I will likely take some more today.

Here it is sitting at the car lot when I picked it up:

Very nice! I went out and cruised around a bit. The 6 speed has really short gears & the axles must be geared pretty low. I need to crawl under and read the tags. It looks like Dana 44 in the back and Dana 30 in front.

I did bunny hop for about 50 feet but that was not so much the low gearing as it was that Mrs. Tin had to pee really bad and I couldn't resist bouncing it down the road.

Nice pick up Tin....most Wranglers come with a Dana 35 rear and few with the 44, besides the Rubicon of course, looks like you got the upgrade. Any plans for lift, tires, wheels, etc.? I know the list for Wranglers can go on and on

Is it very hard to take the top off?

It will be my daily driver so I can`t really afford to have it broken. I`d like to so a 2 or 2 1/2" suspension lift and stay 31x10.5 on the tires . I don't want to get into linkages and so on to correct a really tall lift. There really isn't anywhere serious around here to off road but I'd like to be able to do moderate trails 4 or 5 times a year. The area is pretty flat and mostly farm land. The Goodyear Wranglers that are on it look great but only have a season left. They are really loud too. Likely BF Goodrich all terrains in the fall. I will likely throw a CB in it too.

I am scouting for a used hard top in good shape before winter. I will also need a small utility trailer for dump runs and Home Depot duty.

I want to change the fluids in all the drive train too. The motor was done but I have no idea when the last time the diff fluid was changed.

Anyone have any advice on this? I have three spots to do, front & rear diff and transfer case? I have a lot of learning to do here.

I haven't screwed with it yet WB. It is sealed up pretty good (as in fits properly and is not leaking) and I didn't want to get it half off and they get jammed on me. The zippers are dry as hell. I am going to get some of that zipper lube and treat it before I do anything but yes it folds down quick from what I have seen.

Word of the wise, tinski ... you will regret 31s. If ur doing any lift on a wrangler, u can fit 33s. As a general rule of thumb (from what most off roaders have told me), u can go up to a 3 inch lift without having to run brake lines and everything else

Check out quadratech (sp?) They have EVERYTHING u could EVER wanna do for ur jeep, and more. No knock off shit and if u wanna get stuff, lmk cause I can prob get u a dealer discount. U know how I am about saying good things about a company

Yeah, Quadratech would be nice. It has Smittybuilt bumpers and rails and they look really well built. There will be no knock off stuff. I don't want to upgrade the D30 front so I was staying the smaller diameter.

Great looking Discovery E.T. I always like those.

Here's my 07 Avalanche I sold. I lifted (full suspension) it 6" back in 2011. It was tough to let it go...I had to get a hauler for racing.

Nice! A truck that size suits 35's well.

Newb question 1 of 2395:

How often do you change diff fluid? Is it an annual thing? I have screw in plugs not rubber caps so water should not have gotten in if the previous owner had it in a pond but I have no idea when it was done last.

I don't know about Jeeps, but my 02 Chevy Silverado uses synthetic differential oil and it's very expensive.
The rear end is limited slip and it was stupid expensive.
It's been a few years since I did it and I don't remember the cost but I know I was shocked.

Tin, 80w90 or 85w140 is fine. I used 80w90 till I went with thick cut 4.88s and a locker then the locket company recommended 85w140. No need for synthetic of any additives if you don't have a limited slip or locker. If you have a limited slip you can still skip synthetic if you run a no slip additive and have no issues.

The plugs aren't the only way in for water. Its actually the least common. The most common are the axle seals (shitty design and only has inner seals from factory not putter) and the vent tube for the diff.

Stock the vent tube is real short and water gets in when you go deep. Cheap very needed mod is to extend the rear vent tube (up into the gas filler area is common) the t case vent tube and front diff vent tube(ran both mine to right at the brake MC. Buy a few feet of hose/fuel line and takes half hour do do em all.

Now my Jeep sees so much water and sand (eats the seals away) that I check my diff fluid every oil change. Also being 6" lifted I don't need a lift or a jack do so so it's easy. I don't know what the pros call for but if you don't see water much at all I'd say 2-3 times a year to be safe? Prob don't need it. If and when you bury it....check em after. Cheap easy and saves money later.

Nice Jeep's! Here's my 97 Expedition. Still want to do a few more things to it but they keep getting moved towards the bottom of the list...



Found one of my Dodge before I put the street tires back on it. 3.55's with 33's weren't too good for towing.

No need for synthetic of any additives if you don't have a limited slip or locker. If you have a limited slip you can still skip synthetic if you run a no slip additive and have no issues.

The plugs aren't the only way in for water. Its actually the least common. The most common are the axle seals (shitty design and only has inner seals from factory not putter) and the vent tube for the diff.

Stock the vent tube is real short and water gets in when you go deep. Cheap very needed mod is to extend the rear vent tube (up into the gas filler area is common) the t case vent tube and front diff vent tube(ran both mine to right at the brake MC. Buy a few feet of hose/fuel line and takes half hour do do em all.

Now my Jeep sees so much water and sand (eats the seals away) that I check my diff fluid every oil change. Also being 6" lifted I don't need a lift or a jack do so so it's easy. I don't know what the pros call for but if you don't see water much at all I'd say 2-3 times a year to be safe? Prob don't need it. If and when you bury it....check em after. Cheap easy and saves money later.
Great, thanks!

Sweet! Two in a day, nice work!

I stopped by a friend who is a long time Jeep off road guy and apparently mine passes the inspection. He was pleased.

I managed to score a CB antenna as well from his garage. Keep my eye open for an old 70's CB unit and we are set!

There is a Midland 77-882 in good working order here in town for $20.00. Full on classic 70's unit. I don't know much about these radios but from what I have read they were tough as hell. Cobra seems to be the name everyone wants though.

I hadn't thought about a CB radio in many years and haven't used one in close to 40.
I can see how they would be a good thing for anyone going out of cell range if they had someone listening on the other end.
