Jeep TJ Questions

  • What you describe is a ground problem with the trailer wiring. Starting at the rear of the vehicle, confirm that the ground connection on the Plug and Tow Harness is securely fastened to bare metal. If there is undercoating, corrosion, or grime built up under where you attached the ground, you will not have a good connection. Next, examine the point on the trailer where the trailer connector ground wire attaches. This can usually be found on the trailer tongue. Make sure the wire...

  • As long as both you kayaks do not exceed the 150 lb weight limit of the rack system, you can indeed carry kayaks with the Bestop HighRock Overhead Rack. I would recommend the Yakima BigStack 2 Kayak Carrier, part # Y04041, which would mount directly to the HighRock Rack. The carrier also includes bow/stern tie downs. Keep in mind that since the bars will be located over the rear portion of your Jeep, the length of the kayaks will not be centered on the vehicle. Yakima...

  • We have the brake assemblies you are looking for. The only 6k rated 12 by 2 inch assemblies we offer that have the same unique 4 bolt mounting patter are the # 23-106-09 for the right hand side and part # 23-105-09 for the left hand side. This is for the non-standard Al-KO 4 bolt mounting flange that has a wider spacing for the top bolts than the bottom bolts.

  • Both the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness # 118409 and the Hopkins Plug-N-Tow Wiring Harness # 42615 will work on your 2000 Jeep TJ Wrangler Sport. The difference is what you mentioned, how they install to the vehicle. The Tow Ready harness uses T-One connectors that will plug into connectors on each side of the vehicle. The connectors are located under the Jeep, behind the rear bumper. The white ground wire will need to be attached to a good,clean ground on the vehicles metal...

  • I did some research regarding the specific towing capabilities of your Jeep. According to what I could find, the 1997 TJ has a towing capacity of 2000 lbs towing/ 300 lb tongue weight for the 4.0 L motor or the 2.5 L with manual transmission. The 2.5 L motor with the automatic transmission has a 1000 lb towing/ 100 lb tongue weight capacity. The short wheelbase of the Wrangler is the main reason why none of our hitch manufacturers recommend using weight distribution for this...

  • The Curt Front Mount Hitch, # C31028, does install under the bumper of your 1999 Jeep TJ and, according to my contact at Curt, will not interfere with the steering box or pitman arm. I have attached a photo showing what the hitch will look like once installed. I have also attached a link to the installation instructions for you tow check out.

  • Jeep Wrangler models are not equipped with the under dash connector for installing a brake controller, so there is not a harness that would allow a plug and play installation available, I am sorry to say. Fortunately, a brake controller can be easily installed using our brake controller installation kit, part # ETBC7. The kit includes an adapter that will convert your existing 4-pole trailer connector to a 7-way. If your Jeep does not already have a 4-pole trailer connector,...

  • My technical contact at Shelby happens to be the man who designed the worm gear, so this is what he thinks. In your description, since the jack was jammed in the lowest position, and then basically works but not really, the broken tooth on your worm gear is just a symptom of your real problem. He thinks when your jack was jammed the threads in your acme screw were damaged. You were able to work it out, however, that is the reason that it will not set correctly. When these...

  • You can determine the clearance of the MaxxTow 30x50 Folding Wheelchair Carrier, part # MT70106, to your Jeep TJ spare tire by measuring back from the center of the hitch pin hole (the hole that accepts the hitch pin that secures the hitch to a trailer or cargo carrier). If the distance from the center of the hole to the outside edge of your spare tire is less than 4-3/4 inches, the spare tire will clear the nearest edge of the carrier when it is in the folded position. We...

  • The biggest difference between Curt Hitch # 13430 and # 13408 is that the # 13430 has a round cross tube whereas the # 13408 has a square cross tube. This difference is primarily an aesthetic difference since both of these hitches have the same towing capacities. Another difference between the two hitches is how it attaches to the frame of your 2006 Jeep TJ. I attached a picture that shows the different mounting methods each hitch has. I also attached a picture of both of these...

  • Yes, there is a slight difference between passenger car tires and light truck tires when it comes to using tire chains. Tire chain manufacturers will usually list chains/cables for regular tires and different chains/tires for light truck tires so even tires the same size may not be able to fit each others chains/cables. For LT tires, be sure to use chains or cables for light truck tires in size 245/75-16 to ensure compatibility. Cables # PW1046 are for passenger cars, not...

  • I contacted our representative at Bestop about a replacement rear window and soft upper doors for your 2003 Jeep TJ. For a replacement rear window, you will need Replacement Window Rear, part # B390-45, which zips into a factory Jeep top or factory replacement Jeep top. For soft upper doors, you will need Bestop Soft Upper Doors, part # B5179015, which includes the framing and will bolt into your existing factory steel half doors. For just the soft upper doors without...

  • In a 2000 Jeep Wrangler the emergency brake would be a pedal off to the left of the brake and gas pedal so the center console part # RA32015 would not interfere with it at all. If yours is a lever between the seats then this wouldn't work for you.

  • The Draw-Tite Handle Nut Assembly, part # 1332 is a 1/2 inch nut that is welded to a handle. It does not include a bolt. I am including a link to a video that will show how the handle nut works. If you are needing the bolt and other hardware, you might consider looking at the replacement hardware kit for your particular hitch. The replacement hardware kit will include all the bolts, washers, and handle nuts, that would be required to install your particular hitch on your vehicle. The...

  • The Blue Ox Base Plates, # BK1118, do have a 2 prong attachment point that will accept the Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar. The picture is a typical photo to just show where the base plates will be once installed. So it will install the same way as it did on your other vehicle. Also, I asked my contact at Blue Ox about the TJ model Jeep. She stated that as long as your 2000 Jeep TJ is a Wrangler, the base plates will fit. i know we have separate listings in our fit guide for Wrangler...

  • I checked with Curt and there isn't a difference between the Curt Weight Distribution systems part # C17007 and # C17057 that you referenced. Either part number will be for the same system. It's hard to say exactly what angle will cause problems for a WD when backing up, so the best recommendation I can make would be that if the trailer is being backed up mainly in a straight line you would be fine. But otherwise, I would recommend removing the spring bars.

  • Yes, the spare tire of your 1997 TJ Wrangler that has a 33x10.50R15 tire size on a 15x7 ecco cast aluminum spoke rim with a bolt pattern of 5 inches on 4-1/2 inches will be able to mount to the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier, part # C31006.

  • The Blue Ox adapter part # BX88151 that you referenced will work as an adapter to go from your Sterling Tow Bar # RM-576 to a Blue Ox base plate kit.

  • From what I was able to learn about the 2006 Jeep LJ, from 2004 to 2006 LJ was the unlimited version and had a 10 inch longer wheel base. Both can fall under the umbrella of a Wrangler so you will be able to use Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118409. I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing a typical installation on a 2006 Jeep Wrangler for reference.
