I think I made a mistake…RUST! Ughhhh

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on I think I made a mistake…RUST! Ughhhh

I would not take a wire brush, or anything else for that matter to that oil pan unless you are prepared to replace it, which I strongly recommend. I had a Ford Aerostar we used for a beater and for city jobs. The paint on the oil pan didn’t look as bad as that. One day during an oil change I got ambitious, I was going to clean it up, prime it and paint it. I took a rag with mineral spirits to clean it up a bit before prepping it. The pan started weeping oil. I drained the oil over night, cleaned the pan and formed lead flashing to the shape of the bad area and glued it in place with gasket maker. The repair lasted two years until I junked it. It wasn’t worth the time or effort to replace the oil pan.

In your case get an oil pan and replace it. If that lets go you might not be lucky.

I can’t comment about any of the other areas, it would be best to get under it and actually poke around.

Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off on Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way

A new book by music journalist Ryan White “Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way” is the first definitive look at Buffett from his early days as a song writer to his current role as CEO of Margaritaville. The book comes out on May 9th, 2017 and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

From acclaimed music critic and author of Springsteen: Album by Album comes the real story behind the legendary beach bum, rock star, and billionaire musician Jimmy Buffett—who has enchanted audiences of Parrotheads for over four decades with his tropical fantasy world of Margaritaville.

Jimmy Buffett is not your ordinary rock star—he’s a benevolent pirate icon of the tropical lifestyle and the CEO behind the “Margaritaville Industrial Complex,” a vast network of merchandise, chain restaurants, resorts, and lifestyle products all inspired by his country-rock hit “Margaritaville.” But before his worldwide success, he was a failed musician who couldn’t make it in the industry.

Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way is the first definitive story of Jimmy Buffett that gets to the heart of his journey as a musician and businessman and uncovers numerous wild and fascinating stories from the 70s and 80s. Acclaimed music writer and longtime Buffett fan Ryan White takes us to the many places from the musician’s life: Mobile, Alabama, where he was born and raised; Nashville, where he tried and failed to be a country music star; Key West, where he found his tribe; Aspen, where he befriended fellow landlocked pirate Hunter S. Thompson; and Tierra del Fuego, a place as far away from the world as possible that still has bottle service.

Full of interviews with many of Buffett’s friends, drinking buddies, and Coral Reefers, Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way gives Parrotheads an inside look into Buffett’s world and finally clears up the myths behind the song that he turned into a sought-after lifestyle and a billion-dollar industry.

Kash’d Out’s “Baby Don’t Go” Background:

During the tracking of their new album The Hookup, due out May 26th via Law Records, front-man Greg Shields was also co-writing ‘Girls‘ — Ballyhoo!’s new record. Shortly after those sessions, Greg traveled with Ballyhoo! on the Vans Warped Tour 2016 where he was introduced to Hawaii’s own reggae-rock legends, Pepper. Since Greg had also co-written Ballyhoo!’s Daydreams, which was released through Pepper’s label, LAW Records, Greg patiently waited for the right moment to show Pepper Kash’d Out’s new material.

This will be the first album of 2017 to be released under Law Records, following a 2016 year that saw the label releasing Pepper’s Ohana” in April, the Darenots’ ‘The Truth Is Now’ in May and Katastro’s “Strange Nights” in October to round a great return for the label.

With Kash’d Out’s new release, The Hookup, fans are going to hear 14 brand new songs, with a guest feature by Howi Spangler of Ballyhoo!. The songs are upbeat, poppy, funny, with good melody and rhythm, under an enjoyable umbrella of constant reggae that doesn’t feel in anyway repetitive — It’s actually a great start-to-finish listen. After receiving an advance copy of the album, I genuinely feel that this will be a record that will give you a good and lasting impression.

The albums first single, “Yes I,” has been released and you can find the music video for that song below.

My personal favorite of the album is a song called “Baby Don’t Go.” I love the tone of the track and how they occasionally drop the beat out of the hook before bringing it back to drive home the spirit of the song’s sentiment in pleading to his love not to go.

Here’s what Greg told The Pier when we asked about the song: “Everyone has someone they love, and that’s a powerful feeling which is subject to change. Sometimes in life we’re forced to battle the decision to let our someone go, or to keep them around. When the smoke clears, its easy to feel you’ve made the wrong decision, but is it too late? ‘Baby Don’t Go’ touches on all of that, and I know someone out there can relate.”

Kash’d Out Background:

Straight out of Orlando, FL, Kash’d Out was formed by guitarist Jackson Hauserman and producers Greg Shields Josh Saldate of Sound Lounge Studios. Sound Lounge was a recording home to bands such as Ballyhoo!, Tribal Seeds and many more. Armed with knowledge, experience and true passion for what they do, Kash’d Out’s focus is to put out positive energy through catchy tunes, to help the continued growth of our flourishing reggae/rock community.

Once their self-titled debut EP was complete, Kash’d Out recruited Joey Brohawn on Bass, Marshall Hearne on drums and Nick Gudzan on keys. Now, with the line-up complete, the band hit the studio to record tracks for their second record.

Fast forward to 2017, Kash’d Out is fresh off of a nationwide tour with Pepper/Less Than Jake followed by another with Pacific Dub, and their new full-length album aptly named The Hookup drops May 26th on LAW Records.

Electrical issues after hardtop installation

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on Electrical issues after hardtop installation


I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X 2 door and I recently installed a hardtop. Here’s the scoop: About three weeks ago, I installed the hardtop wiring harness (before the hardtop was in my possession) which overall went fine. I did break off one of the plastic clips that holds the large grey handle on the E harness connecting to the TIPM, but was still able to reinsert connector E in the TIPM without issue. I had no issues following the installation. Last Thursday, I picked up the hardtop and installed it on my Jeep. I hooked up the connectors and everything except for the rear defroster worked fine (I had not been to the dealer to have the computer programmed for the hardtop yet). I drove it after installation and everything was fine.

Here’s where the problems start. The next morning, as I was pulling out of my parking garage, the ABS, BRAKE, ESP/BAS, and traction control lights came on. I parked the car, turned it off, and turned it back on; no lights. However, as soon as I hit 10 mph, the lights would come on. I could get the traction control light to turn off by pressing the “ESP OFF” button on my dash twice. I hooked the car up to a DTC reader and got the code C2200.

I immediately assumed I screwed something up with the hardtop wiring harness installation given the timing. I checked and double checked all of my wiring and harnesses, ensured they were secure, etc. Didn’t work. If anyone is familiar with the hardtop wiring kit instructions, they’ll know they are terrible. There is one wire (CAV 27) in the TMPC Connector E where there is some confusion regarding whether the old wire (dark blue/brown) should be removed and replaced by the new wire from the hardtop wiring kit (brown/green), or if the new brown/green wire should be spliced into the existing dark blue/brown wire. Initially I spliced into this wire. After the lights came on, I tried simply replacing the old blue/brown wire with the new green/brown wire. This also didn’t work.

I have checked through everything and can’t figure out what’s going on. For the C2200 error code, if it disappears after turning the car off and doesn’t reappear until you start driving, the service manual states its an intermittent ABS internal fault. I went through the directions to solve this issue and haven’t found the problem. Maybe it’s unrelated to the hardtop install and its just coincidence it happened at the same time? Anyone have any ideas?

tl;dr Installed a new hardtop on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler and now the ABS, BRAKE, ESP/BAS, and traction control lights are on (after reaching 10 mph) with DTC code of C2200. What did I screw up?

Axle seal question

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on Axle seal question

You probably either got the wrong seal or didn’t properly seat the seal. I doubt the housing is machined larger than factory but you never know with these things. It’s also possible the axle shaft has issues such as corrosion on the sealing surface. Clean it up all nice and shiny.

Look at Jeep Solid on YouTube.
@JeepSolid.Dale
has one of the better videos on making the tool to pull the seal into the housing. I believe it only cost around $10 to make with threaded rod, a few nuts, and an assortment of large washers.
