  1. Guys, Good day ahead! I got the front wheel brakes converted from drum to disc of my jeep and the pics attached below. The known issue of 4DR5 Jeeps which is the inability to be stable by the time of applying brakes because of the fact that the shoes engage to the drum at different intervals. So the result is the vehicle to move left or right suddenly when the brake applies. When Speeding at 80Km/h or so, it gets worse because there is possibility of facing an accident. The issue was solved with the disc brake conversion and now it feels the difference while braking specially at the moments said before.
  2. Hi Guys I have got a Land cruiser prado LJ78 and have got the following concerns; 1. The engine light is on and when scanned its said to be an electrical issue and no major concern according to the technical guy, Is this serious concern to keep the jeep running? 2. Is it mandatory to have a turbo timer ? 3. What would be the exact steps to get the vehicle on 4WD? What are the uses of H4? I am new to the jeep category and learning with experience, appreciate your feedback and suggestions. Thanks

  4. Hi Guys I am Interested about the brand Jeep Cherokee. Pls comment on it overall. I am talking about 2.4L (Patrol) model.
  5. Hi All, I recently bought a J44 4DR5 Jeep. It is not having power steering. And I am willing to keep it's original features. I need to upgrade tire because they are worn-out. Jeep had 15" size rims with radial tire. Later I bought original 4DR5 Rim size 16". Now I am having both 15" & 16" size rims. I found only CE#T tires available in 6.00-16 with bar threads( Calling as Jeep Katta). No way to find out 7.60 15" Tires. My Questions Is there any issues with using 6.00-16 tires, instead of 15" size? (Braking, Stability, Comfortably, Noise....) Is there any other way to find tires with higher width?(Like 7.60..). I had attached a image bellow. It 's spare wheel is low width tire. What would be the usability of similar kind of tire ? And sizeof the tire? Thank you
  6. Hi Friends, Considering a Mitsubishi 4DR5 jeep's suspension system (Leaf Spring + Shock absorber) , What kind of Shock absorbers to worth having. Because I will need to replace them sooner and currently it has normal black color oil ones which could cost 1500-2000 each. To enhance the comfort a bit, I was thinking of getting a bit better shock may be Gas ones. So I visited m*t*rcade and that guy said, there is a rancho shock which cost around 8000 each that suits for the jeep. Its mixed with oil and gas and auto adjusted for the road condition as said. Will it worth to have them and will I get any considerable change in comfort and may be handling by having those? Or are there any brands or types of shocks that I can consider? I don't go for very expensive stuff but in between basic and most advanced is ok for me. Please reply. Thanks a lot in advance.
  7. Hi Friends, Please read this issue and comment what you know or experienced or heard about it. Thanks a lot in advance. I was having this idea for a long time which is to convert 4DR5 Drum brakes to Discs but many people advised with many ideas that some says don't do it and some says do so. Actually one of my friend did it on front wheels sometime back and he is saying he has better braking especially when running in the city. ( Better means, sudden stops due to motor bikers and three wheelers in a traffic conditions ) However I think the common issue with these jeeps are is that, the vehicle is pulled to one side when braking hard. ( Especially when we want to stop suddenly when the speed is aroud 70 KMPH or higher) To overcome this issue, I have pasted the drums and serviced the braking system ( From master pump to brake shoes, replacing washers and etc.. ) By doing that we can achieve a good level of braking without pulling to any side for sometime and again that issue comes. Then we have to get a mechanics help to adjust the brakes and this goes on and on. I called several people who said to be experienced of doing such conversions and all of them quoted very different prices. Some says they change the axles with ones with Discs and one person said, he does not change any axles but remove the drum and related parts and modify it with disc to match with Pajero caliper set. For that they say they get the disc Moulded from a place at Moratuwa or somewhere. However I inspected 2 jeeps they have done recently with the one of it is belonging to a friend of mine that I mentioned earlier. Those are seemed to be fine for me but I really don't know technically how successful that is in a long run. Also I am having a free wheel hubs at front and as per they, any of those are not required to change and Discs can be applied without any problem. The amount they quoted for that is 55000 for front two wheels. I am thinking of getting this conversion done may be in a month or two. So please advice any drawbacks you see on this. Also if you have done it before please post your experience. Its really valuable. Thanks again.
  8. Hi Friends, I need your expert advice related an engine swap of a 4DR5 J44 jeep. Currently it has 4DR51 engine and modified with power steering and AC compressor. What possible engines will it be able to swap with? I mean considering the options it has, what newer engines that can be considered which support in built power steering and AC? Also please give the differences of 4DR55, 4DR6 and 4DR7 engines which I do not know any detail about those. (Did a Google search but couldn't find any). Thanks a lot in advance and highly appreciate your detailed replies.
  9. Hello there, Could anyone explain the legal aspects of having safety bars for a jeep (4DR5)? I understand that safety bars are applicable for off road situations but is it legal to drive with those in the city in case if needed (assuming that an off road tour is organized and need to drive the jeep to the location it starts) ? Also do we need to get special permission to have those fixed to the vehicle? Kindly expect replies with legal matters and related details please. Thanks so much in advance.
