    I think there are enough people that plow with jeeps. Who thinks we need our own section on this forum to post jeep issues?. it would be alot simpler searching for things.
    Just my 2 cents.

    I'm all for it. I have 2 Wranglers, one with a Blizzard 680. I often have questions which are "Jeep Only" related.

    I have a 83 CJ7 in the works. I guess you think there are to many threads about Jeeps on here? Should there be seperate discussions for Dodges, Fords, Chevys, and other vehicles too? I think that there would not be as many responses if there was a seperate place for Jeeps. Just my opinion.

    Umm... there is!

    I'd love a Jeep forum. As it is, I split my time between here and JeepsUnlimited.com

    It would be nice to address Jeep/plow issues together.

    I suppose there is a place here for Ford, Dodge and Chevy talk. There seems to be plenty of Jeep guys here so why not. I have a 42' Ford GPW which is basically a Jeep so I might qualify.

    Add another vote for a Jeep section. It is difficult to search anything Jeep related, its all spread out.

    Wrangler O2 sensor

    Hey...great idea for a Jeep section! Here's my problem. I have a '97 Wrangler 4.0 manual trannie w/Western 6.5. I've experienced occasional engine shutdowns when I'm plowing for 4-5 hours. It will usually start back up after a few minutes of sitting but last year I needed a tow back to the house. I replaced the upstream O2 sensor and that fixed it....temporarily. At the end of last year, I started to get the occasional shutdown problem again. Could I be "overheating" the sensor when I'm pushing it? I heard that the sensor has a battery inside. A mechanic said that I can unplug the sensor but the mileage will suffer. (who gets "gas mileage" when plowing anyway?) I unplugged it and seems to run a bit better. Maybe I should replace both upstream and downstrem sensors with OEM parts? (I replaced with a Boche) Anyone else have this problem? Whadayathink? Pete :help:

    If you replaced it before and it was working OK, I would replace them with OEM. For some reason DC cars and trucks don't seem to play well with Bosch oxygen sensors. If you check around the prices for OEM are not much more than Bosch. If you go to
    www.ngk.com and type in 23017 you need 2, same sensor front and back. Grand Total (before Shipping) $99.70.

    I had something like that happend to me a few times last winter. I narrowed it down to a an overheating fuse for the fuel pump. A few minutes rest would do the trick.

    Thanks for the replies. I checked the ngk site. The price sounds right but.....is it really OEM stuff? I found a site www.buymopar.com that has OEM @ $70 per. I'll check the fuel pump fuse thing also. Has anyone else experienced the same problem while plowing?
