    Yellow Box - Customer Support

    About 4 years ago I installed a Yellow Box to correct the speedo/odometer for non stock tires. Everything worked perfectly until last month. The speedo/odometer works at start-up, then stops working after 3-5 miles. If I bypass the Yellow Box everything works as designed, just not at the...

    No Speedometer/Odometer - Intermittent

    1995 - 300,000+ miles As the title says, my speedometer/odometer is not working intermittently. The pattern is, initially both work, after about 5 miles of driving both stop working. I have read through all of the posts I could find. Most fix this problem by replacing the VSS. My VSS is...

    Wiper Motor - Growl of Death

    I think I know the answer but thought I'd post it up here to get some feedback. It has been raining quite a bit in Northern California. Two days ago I jumped in my cruiser, started it up, turned the wipers on, and heard what appears to be a "Growl of Death" coming from the wiper motor. I did...

    AC Compressor?

    Is this a common AC compressor failure point? The first 2 pictures were taken 2 months ago after a 3000+ mile road trip. The AC worked, except for in Vegas after driving for 6 hours and the outside temp being 100+. I cleaned the area, drove it for 2 months and snapped the 3rd picture tonight.

    Picked up a few Rear Defrost Switches to hook up a few accessories. Unfortunately, they came without the pigtails. So, I need to fab some harnesses. Does anyone know the what size female spade fits on these switches? My calipers don't quite fit in there for an accurate reading.

    Repurposing Switches - Anyone use Laser Cut Labels?

    I have read the process that @NLXTACY posted here: SWITCH RELABLES- printable single sheet I have tried this technique and am just not happy with my results. It's probably me but the plastic is opaque and the results look home made. I was wondering if anyone has access and/or used a laser...

    Has anyone seen these in action? They are 4" 30 watt LED fog/driving lights. The expensive ones are J.W. Speaker lights. There are knockoffs on Amazon and Ebay too. They are designed to fit in the newer Jeep driving light locations. I am assuming Jeep owners are buying them as an upgrade to...

    EP 34 Flasher...Still Fast Flash Rate

    I recently purchased a Tridon EP-34 off Amazon but received a Novita EP-34 flasher instead. They appear to be the same unit. I have LED turn signal bulbs at all 4 corners. This flasher fixed the "hyper-flashing" I was experiencing but the flash rate is faster than the OEM unit. Have others...

    Breeze Constant Torque Clamps - A Comprehensive List - Anyone?

    I have never been able to justify spending the $ on those fancy constant torque clamps. However, after changing my heater control valve this past weekend I realized how damaging the cheap clamps really are. The expensive silicone heater hose I used last summer was clearly damaged by the cheap...
