Customer States: Engine barely runs and has a severe lack of power. It also has the occasional no start or long cranking before it starts. So far I've found vacuum leaks, clogged ports, antifreeze leaks from the water pump and the electric fan is damaged. I had the fuel pump, filter, spark plugs, ignition wires, and a distributor cap and rotor. It also has a new coolant temp sensor, O2 sensor, MAP, intake temp, IAC and throttle position sensor replaced. The ECM / PCM has been replaced too. See part one.

Check this thing out! I Uh I Got this today. Yes, it's a shiny tool kit. Yes! I have a bunch of these. Uh, the real reason is all the stuff that I'm doing on Project G standard size tools and sockets.

particularly that differential pin that I had to remove last night which had me kind of nervous and I ended up using a tool that wasn't designed for it I Went on the tool truck today and they had some 12 point see that very fine 12 point sockets. They had one set of 12 point sockets and and this was it right here now. I was able to justify this to myself because I do need a mobile set of tools and just get that out of here and what I'm going to do is keep this thing with me in the truck. So this is pretty much all the basic stuff and again, I got the 12 points that I needed I have almost no 12 point sockets and I have nothing in 12 point.

that is quarter inch drive. So this was like the unicorn of socket sets right here. So I got this to go in the truck. oh it's got wrenches too.

this goes in the truck also. 12 point Zooms? Yeah, see that the reason I purchased these? Uh, they were like 400 something dollars which is crazy but uh, you know tools make money. They don't cost money. That's just kind of how I see it bro, get that back in there.

um I also messed up and I well I didn't mess up but I set the bar kind of low on the project Jeep differential thing if you caught the video from earlier today which I shot uh in the evening last night we pulled this differential out right here because I heard some noise inside of it and I found some grenaded see that absolutely destroyed spider gears inside of that differential. So I made a deal with you guys if that video got 12 000 likes I was going to go ahead and just uh, buy this set of gears and rebuild, rebuild this carrier or buy a new buy a new differential carrier because I think that one's got a lot of wear at the pin bar. Anyway, before I start rambling, you guys met the light quota already there was I should have asked for like 30 000 because I got 22 000. So we're definitely gonna get this thing fixed and it's not going to cost the customer anything because he's already spent loads of money on some other stuff I haven't even pulled the trans out yet, but we have to put a clutch in this thing.

Also show because of the help that you guys are rendering me I Have taken it upon myself to finance the rebuild on this rear axle. It's going to include some some side bearings I pulled those out last night I Found a bunch of metal in here so all the bearings have been swimming in metal therefore those are going to have to be replaced. So project Jeep Now rage is on and that moves us over into the part Two of my offer where I said if that video got a thousand subscribers I would uh instead of just repairing that differential with a stock unit I was going to install like a Yukon Locker or a limited slip, something aftermarket and a performance upgrade to the uh, the open differentials that this thing has I said that at a thousand said something I think 5000 was going to get lockers up front but I don't think we're going to get 5000 on that video. A thousand is definitely and we're talking subscribers here.
A thousand subscribers is definitely within the reach because so far I think 560 of you have joined the channel in order to see that. Yukon Locker go in and I really appreciate that. That's really cool. I've I've never kind of pulled the audience to uh to participate in a repair like that before, but I'm enjoying how this is working out.

Actually look at that. At the time of this recording, we're at 762 subscribers on that video so we have almost reached the threshold where I'm going to instead of repairing that put in like a Yukon or um I mean I'll shop around for. you know what I think is going to work out best but um, once we reach that thousand Subs on that video Mark I'm gonna go ahead and rebuild this with an upgraded unit which I think is an excellent complement to the project. Jeep 1995 Wrangler Restoration Series So preemptively thank all you guys for participating uh in this activity with me.

I'm enjoying that you guys are helping out and you're involved in uh in this Jeep project. Oh by the way, if um, you did not happen to catch that video, I will leave a link to it down in this video's description and one at the very end of this video in like the center box and I'll also stick a tag right up here right now and uh, those links will take you to that particular video where I pulled that differential apart and then uh and made the subscriber slash like button offer. So if you have not seen that or have not uh, familiarized yourself with project Jeep Uh, just go ahead and click that link and uh and check it out and see what you think, Let me know anyway. I'm gonna close this video out.

Thanks for watching this short one. Appreciate you guys being here and as always, don't forget to have yourselves a great day! See you guys later! Oh man, one more thing I forgot Aaron A-Rod with power stroke Tech Talk is coming down to Florida this weekend I've completely forgot to mention that earlier. Hang on, Let me show you why Standby: Where is it? Where? Aha There they are there they are. Check this out.

I have A Banks Pedal Monster. Check that thing out right there. Thanks Pedal Monster And A banks I Dash 1.8 Uh, this is a gauge system and this is a throttle controller to remove the factory. Uh, delayed.

Expo What? I'm gonna call it delayed exponential response of the throttle. So um, maybe I should draw it. Hang on. Okay, let me see if I can.

Uh, if I can articulate this properly is going to be crude. Thanks. Can't write Pedal Monster. Okay, we got our Banks Pedal Monster right here.

Now over here we've got. this is very crude. We've got our throttle and I'm aware diesels don't have the throttle, but just for the sake of this we're gonna. that's gonna be our throttle.
and then over here we'll have our pedal. See, we got a pedal and a little rotating thing. It's yeah. I'm not an artist so we have a pedal.

Got our Banks module. We've got our throttle now. Normally on your vehicle, you've got your ECM Okay, so your pedal sends-ish sends information to your ECM and your ECM commands your throttle. Okay, what this thing does is it connects right here and right here.

So when you send information to your ECM, the Banks module will intercept it, alter the signal, then send it back to the ECM and then control the throne. And what that effectively does is let me think of how to do this all right. So we've got zero throttle right here. We're gonna make a graph.

We have zero percent, 100 percent and that's your throttle pedal and then over here can be your actual throttle for your plate. So normally when you apply throttle, the graph is going to look like that. so you can apply 50 throttle on your pedal, but you're only going to get Maybe 33 percent at the actual throttle on the vehicle. What the Banks module does is it creates a linear throttle curve.

So when you apply 50 throttle, you're getting 50 throttle. When you apply 20 throttle, you're actually getting 20 throttle. So it eliminates this curve that is designed into the ECM and it just gives you a faster throttle response. I hope and well, it makes it feel more controllable and I understand.

Uh, it's customizable with the eye. Dash So you can turn up or down this curve to your comfort level or for towing or for racing or who knows what you want to do that for. But you can customize how the throttle feels to you with the Bank's Pedal Monster and I believe that's what this thing is for. So circling back Power Stroke Tech Talk A-Rod is coming down to Florida this weekend and we're going to install this on Madura maps and this I think and the reason he's going to do that is he has A Bank's Pedal Monster.

He is familiar with them and he knows how they operate and he is a far more knowledgeable on such things than I Am. And since he and I are friends, we're going to do this together. You know what? I'm I'm tempted too I Wasn't going to open these until later. but since you guys are here and I know you want to know I'm gonna open these right now.

we're gonna check them out. Uh no, this is not an unboxing video, this is just. uh. me sharing these devices with you.

Come here for the instructions. Yeah, we're gonna need those wire ties emblems. That's cool. We've got our connections, our harness, and this is the module.

So we wired this guy into it. looks like the existing throttle connectors. So we're going to do this down on the floorboard. We're going to open up the throttle connection plug these guys in.

this module is going to intercept my throttle inputs from the pedal using this cable I Believe it will connect to the eye Dash which is a gauge system and a Data Logger Really cool stuff you should check out Banks Power Check out Banks Power on YouTube They've got videos on such things. Open I Dash Instructions again. We've got a harness and this is going to connect to the OBD2 port on the truck. That way this gauge unit can see all of the data parameters and I can interact with them I can log them I can save them that goes back there and I can also control the functions of the pedal monster with this gauge component right here I Think that's going to be really, really cool.
So yeah. Unboxing complete. That's what we're doing this weekend. If you are not familiar with Aaron go ahead and check out Power Stroke Tech Talk with A-Rod I Will also leave a link to his channel down in this video's description that's gonna be below the project.

Jeep Links Okay, I'm really going to go this time. Thanks again for watching! See you guys in the next one end of transmission.

    Audience interaction is where it's at! Not only on the whole 'choose your own adventure' style auto repair, but also on the livestream as well which you could do like maybe once a month or something!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Abdulaziz Almodahka says:

    A similar product made by DTE tuning in Germany called the pedal box and fits within the throttle by wire circuit as a plug & play module and it truly transforms the vehicle‘s response 👍🏽

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars random person says:

    so basically, the part that goes directly to your ecu tells your ecu to increase the amount of fuel? i had a maestro 2l EFI that (i think) had something similar on it. you put your foot on the pedal and instant power?. ive probably got this wrong, im no mechanic so maybe shouldnt have said anything. was just interested if im near the mark on this?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Squires says:

    That was a rhinoceros, not a unicorn. So sad. 🙁… 🤣🤣🤣😂 Yeah, right. Anyway, that was my public service announcement for today, lest anyone accuse Ray of spreading misinformation about unicorns. Or rhinoceroses. Or even octopuses. Because. 8 arms. And what automotive repair person hasn’t wished for more grabbing appendages from time to time, eh?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Morton says:

    My son, you have got to get yourself a prettier unicorn. I know they exist in Florida.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John says:

    For some reason I think opening a box and sharing what's inside is an unboxing video by definition. I could be wrong though.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Inhiswill777 says:

    You couldn't be working and recording like your do now at the old shop… so much freedom to do new things…

    Much improvement 👏

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 808 EcoBeast says:


  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kevin campbell says:

    i bought the pedal monster for my 2020 duramax, the sales guy told me it would eliminate turbo lag. i disagreed but he assured me it would eliminate turbo lag. installed was not surprised all it did was ramp up the accelerator pedal, i found it a complete waste of money so i returned it. but i do like the derringer.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Montana Dirt Roads says:

    Torque king 4×4 makes seal drivers and removal tools aswell as carries pretty much anything drivetrain components for that jeep and even your truck.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheManBearPig says:

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Leffler says:

    We are learning so much from these videos!!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Posey says:
