Re: TeamRush, dunno if you\'ve seen this site......
1)if i wanted to read about hotrods, i wouldnt have bought a jeep.
2)as you can see, i havent been on the forum too long, but that doesnt mean i havent been around jeeps for a while.
c)in the 13 years that ive been actively interested and participating in jeep activites, i havent seen this mod published anywhere, EXCEPT here. i will say that i had no idea how old it was or how long its been used on jeeps. let alone been around in existance. ive read thru alot of the major jeep sites that arent poser or yuppie dedicated. the 2 best 'real guy' sites are off-road.com and dirtroad.com i have read every article ever writtin in jp magazine, every article pertinant to jeeps in every off road magazine in print now and in the last 15 years. if it was in hotrod magazine, gee, no wonder i didnt know about it. as far as offroading goes, ive been thru tellico, blairesville and other north ga trails, and rogers ky. im not 'new' to this sport. and like ive said in another post, NOBODY KNOWS EVERYTHING. i will be ther first one to admit i was wrong or didnt know the answer to a question. i will also chime in and give my opinion or solution to a problem i have had been involved with before, or give a suggestion when someone asks for any ideas. i did that with the guy who posted a question about keeping water from getting to a weber carb.
a few years ago, someone told my brother that the dealerships are under legal obligation from some kind of act from congress, to repair any damages to the vehicle (drivetrain) that suffers damage from a mod like a lift. what everyone fails to understand is that the dealership is the determining factor in whether it gets done under warranty or not. sure, you can cite the act and rant about how much it has to be done, like he did....but, who do you think is gonna win that argument? the dealer. the dealer has your jeep, the dealer has a better lawyer, the dealer has more financial resources. in the end, the dealer is gonna bleed a considerable amount of money and time out of you. all because someone says this act protects you from having to pay for the repairs. sure, the dealer may cave in and finally say, ok, you win. but at what cost to you?
the SINGLE BEST WAY to be able to get repairs done like a waterlogged tranny done under warranty is to find a dealer mechanic that also goes four wheeling, and make friends with him, and join his club. that same mechanic is your best source of info and spare parts, especially the hardest to find parts.
