Re: Clicking noise from one of the wheel areas on my 2002 Overland.

Problem solved my brothers. The 'heat shield' thing that runs the length of the exhaust under the cabin of the truck had come free. (Crappy washers that rust away ...in my humble oppinion). The...

Re: Clicking noise from one of the wheel areas on my 2002 Overland.

Great story. Thanks again for helping out. I may have found the source of my problem/noise, but, I now need to go buy a big enough floor jack to lift up each wheel... In the rear, the discs have a...

Re: Clicking noise from one of the wheel areas on my 2002 Overland.

I'd love it if it was just a pebble in the tire; but me thinks it's more than that. Will dig further and update you guys. Thanks!

Clicking noise from one of the wheel areas on my 2002 Overland.

So, I'm taking an offramp the other day, going around a gentle corner, when I start to hear a clicking noise. Seems to be coming from the passenger rear wheel. When I stepped on the brake I thought...

Re: 255/60/17s on an 02' Overland?

Has anyone ever put 255/60s on their WJ? If so, can you post a picture and tell me if there were any issues (rubbing, speedo, etc.)?

Re: What spark plugs go into an 02' GC Overland with the 4.7 HO engine

On my first tank with the new plugs I got just under 13mpg but it was mostly "around town" driving. I drive mello - don't hammer the gas pedal - but still it wasn't highway driving.

Muffler repair?

I just noticed a small hole in the rear muffler on my 02' Overland. I want to try a repair/patch vs. buying a whole new setup. What have you folks found to work well?

Re: Mixed plugs = Misfire & 10mpg !
