Moses Ludel’s 4WD Mechanix Magazine – Mopar TechAuthority: The OEM Jeep Technical Resource
As a Jeep technical professional and author of the bestselling Jeep® Owner’s Bible™ and two Jeep® CJ Rebuilder’s Manuals (each from Bentley Publishers), I value Mopar technical resources! The internet is rife with information; however, there is only one Jeep® and Dodge-Ram “factory” information source—Mopar TechAuthority!..Whether I am rebuilding, restoring, modifying, maintaining or writing about Jeep® 4WD or Dodge Ram vehicles, the first choice for service information is a Mopar® service manual. Each of my Jeep® books has earned a Mopar part number. Why? Because my research reflects the reliable, detailed information found in Mopar® manuals and service guidelines…If you value factory, dealership-level service information and professional technical data, consider a Mopar® TechAuthority II website subscription. Put Mopar® TechAuthority™ on your “Favorites” list!
Whether writing a Jeep® book or plying a rock-strewn trail, my 4×4 projects must be reliable. For rebuilding or describing this New Process 231 transfer case, I depend on Mopar service details!
Whether you own a 4×4 shop, prep your own Jeep 4WD for off-road trails, own or service Dodge or Ram trucks and trailer pullers, or simply want the best information to service your Jeep, Dodge-Ram and other Chrysler Group vehicles, TechAuthority delivers the professional, primary information you need!
TechAuthority.com provides factory service, diagnostic, wiring and training information. You can even find diagnostic tools for 1981 and later model Chrysler Group vehicles! The same information that Chrysler Group, LLC, dealerships rely upon is now available to other service technicians and independent shops—and do-it-yourself Jeep 4WD and Dodge Ram mechanics!
TechAuthority information is available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish for Worldwide use across languages!
My Jeep library has grown steadily since the ‘sixties! Willys, Kaiser, AMC and Mopar® shop manuals and service literature line my office bookshelves. These manuals have contributed to the success of my Jeep® books (lower shelf, left). Mopar® service information continues to play a large role in my work, including this magazine! Today, thanks to Mopar® TechAuthority II online, Chrysler Group service manuals are available in print, CD and instantly via electronic access—right to your computer screen!
There is a precise sequence to assembling an AX15 Jeep transmission. You will not find color-illustrated, AX15 step-by-step rebuilding details in a forum chat! You will not get technical information by swapping stories around a campfire…You will get these details at this website! (See my209-step article on the AX15 rebuild.)
My professional work consistently follows Mopar service procedures described within Mopar service manuals and technical products. Make Mopar your resource, too!
