How-to: Jeep YJ Wrangler, TJ/LJ Wrangler & Rubicon 4WD Workshop

4.0L Mopar long block assembly for a YJ or TJ application

     Leaf spring suspension makes the YJ Wrangler a popular off-road 4x4. Its proven CJ-7 length wheelbase responds well to lift kits, big wheels and tires, axle gearing and traction upgrades, and the list of popular modifications that have driven the Jeep CJ 4WD aftermarket for four decades!

Want to do your own Jeep 4WD repairs, troubleshooting and upgrades? The workshops offer Jeep technical 'how-to' projects, valuable troubleshooting tips plus a variety of upgrade product installations. See the 'how-to' articles, videos and instructional tips on the following pages!

     In 1997, the TJ Wrangler entered the scene. Disputes about link-and-coil suspension quickly faded as the aftermarket responded with lift kits and an array of popular CJ and YJ type upgrades. 4WD Jeep TJ Wranglers have proven themselves on rocky trails, easily meeting each challenge.

     By 2003, the factory Rubicon Edition came to market with a mild lift, 31" diameter tires, axle lockers front and rear, and a transfer case with 4:1 low range ratio...This sent a message to the competition: even a stock production model Jeep® meets stringent off-road challenges!

TJ Rubicon Edition with 4-inch lift suspension

     This section of 4WD Mechanix Magazine serves YJ and TJ Wrangler owners' needs. Popular gear and powertrain upgrades, installing axle lockers, suspension modifications and backcountry accessories characterize this market.
