Welcome! Read this first.

Welcome to Off-Road.Com's Jeep Short Wheelbase forum! Here is the information you need to take full advantage of this site:

Please fill out your profile. The information will help us get to know you and answer your questions accurately. Click the "User CP" button at the top of the page.

There is a Frequently Asked Questions section that explains how the bulletin board works.

There is a "Subscribe" function for favorite threads under the User CP button at the top of your screen.

An explanation of lingo can be found HERE. Thanks to Sean K. (eeboater) for compiling it.

Hints to cure log-on problems. The ORC Forum requires a valid HTTP_REFERER from your browser. Some internet security programs block this. Your web browser can block it if your privacy settings are too high. If you have a firewall, disable it as a test. Also, your browser must accept cookies.

Use the Search function. There isn't much that hasn't already been covered. Search is at the top of the post list.

Give your post a meaningful title "HELP!" or "What's this for?" are not good. "Carter YF - loose float bowl?" is good.

Good grammar is nice. Punctuation and capitalization help. Poorly written, run-on questions are difficult to follow, and are often ignored.

Spelling is important. You may want to download IE SPELL . It works with Internet Explorer to check spelling in your Web text boxes, and it's FREE!

Off-topic posts. If the post is not directly related to Jeeps, please indicate so by starting your post title with "O/T ".

Here are some rules that MUST be followed:

No foul language. This is a family forum. If you wouldn't say it in front of your mother, or would be surprised to hear it in a church service, don't put it here.

No posts on political topics. Posts mentioning political parties, candidates, government officials or actions, either directly, implied or by reference, are forbidden. Land-use issues are excepted.

Don't be rude. No forum member deserves to be insulted. Flaming will not be tolerated!

For Sale posts will not be kindly received if you haven't contributed significantly to this forum. There is a classified section HERE that can be found off ORC's home page listings.

We're starting a new section of useful links that are widely applicable. You may make nominations to the moderators. The article need not be in this forum, or even on the ORC site, but it must address a common problem. Here's the first:

RRich's Propane Trick write up; a very handy method of diagnosing fuel mixture problems.
Propane Trick

John Strenk's CJ gauge troubleshooting guide. Everything you ever wanted to know about instrument problems.
CJ Speedometer Gauge Quick Test

To use a stock tachometer for an engine with more cylinders, here's a link to jeeperjohn's modification: https://forums.off-road.com/jeep-shor...ml#post1364621

If you're looking for a place to go off road, check the Google map here:
Cool wheeling map

There is also a member's map SWBBS Frapper at Frapper.com. Check it out to see who's near you, and add yourself under your board name.

If you'd like some early history of the Jeep, go here for a short movie:
Jeep - Steel Soldier

We also have stickers for the board. If you are interested you can find details at the link below:
Die cut vinyl stickers.

A good place for information on shops and garages:
The Garage Journal

An on-line source for vehicle wiring diagrams:
Factory Wiring Diagrams @ The Automotive Research Desk

A very good on-line parts catalog for the popular Motorcraft 2100 & 2150 carburetors:
Motor Craft 2 BBL

A very handy driveshaft reference is here: http://www2.dana.com/pdf/J321-CV.PDF

If you need assistance or see something that should come to the attention of the moderators, send a Private Message or direct e-mail to Dirt Dog AND Jim_Lou.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
