In a PM, Troy had mentioned putting up some info to help the newbies out. So I've started this thread to throw some of my own thoughts out there and get everyones ideas. There's already a decent amount of info gathered up in the TJ forum. There's a FAQ as well as some commonly used terms and acroynyms in that post here.

Another idea that I have would be "stock specs" pages. They would have to be listed by model (CJ, YJ, XJ, TJ, ZJ, etc.) and would include drivetrain info, trim levels, production numbers, yada, yada, yada. It would be a bitch to complie, but still...it would be a great resource and, IMHO, well worth the trouble.

This is another good resource that Mike originally posted, http://www.usauto.co.uk/2003/chrysler/Jeep/Jeep%20Catalog%20Complete.pdf. It's a listing of Jeep part numbers, but it does not include TJ's. Confused

Ideas, thoughts, opinions?

Steve

Excellent idea! I have started gathering specs on my little project (the CJ2). Perhaps we can start threads in the appropriate sections that we can contribute to as we gather info. Cool

I think that this is a great idea. Just like that thread talks about things like what fits under stock, under 1" and so on - I think that info is EXTREMELY useful for newbs. I still consider myself a newb and I have to look up terms and stuff on a regular basis. I can't contribute much but I could try to help...[/url]
