Hi all, New member and new joyner trooper owner here.
Just picked it up yesterday. I worked for it. -40C here in Winnipeg, Canada loading it into a trailer. Unit was too tall. Some ratchet straps, recopricating saw and a lot of F^#ks.
Anyway she came with a broken front driveshaft. One of the ears was cracked off. I have a replacement but i am unsure how the driveshaft comes off the transfer case.
Doesn't sem to pull off or have any way to remove it. Any suggestions??
Since I’ve got about 7.5k mostly off-road miles on the old T4, the steering rack is pretty sloppy!
Installed a new one pretty easily though…
Had to use a new steering u-joint since the spline on the Joyner rack is a bit smaller/metric.
Used Latest Rage part number AC425152
and a 5/8”- 36 spline - 3/4 double D shaft.
I have a 2008 Joyner Trooper 1100 T2. The Initial 3 second start up sequence will not go, but motor will turn over.By California Nut case
I have a 2008 trooper 1100 T2 which ran great, but the starter would not engage for a lot of clicks. I changed out the starter, careful to note one wire on the solenoid and 4 wires on the main starter motor post. After I finished, the start sequence where the two gages sweep back and forth and the fuel pump and fan turn on for 3 second, stopped working. I can not find any bad or loose wires, I tried changing out the ECU and can not find anything apparently wrong. Does anybody know what sensor error stop the initiation sequence.?

I have been a member of the forum and enjoy reading your posts this is my first one. I have had my T4 for over a year, more than 1600 miles on it now. I was having idle and starting problems. I had the temp sensors changed, replaced the fuel filter, cleaned the plugs (new ones in the mail) replaced the alternator and a new battery.
When I get the thing running it really idles and runs much better, however, it is running hot now and never did that before. (Ideas???? I bled the cooling system at least 6 times like Joyner said to do)
The hard starting problem isn't fixed. The engine cranks but it sounds like it isn't getting fuel to turn over. This happens after it sits overnight. IF I can get it started, I don't have the starting problems again until it sits overnight or longer.
I have virtually no mechanical skills so I can't be precise on what I think the problem is. I won't push start now (which I have been able to do in the past.) The engine continues to crank over and over until the battery starts to get drained and I am at a loss!!!! Last year I had the starter replaced because I had issues with that. (Thank goodness for extended warranties!)
Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Want to go out and play some paintball with my sons this coming weekend!
ps.... Kinarfi, I live in Henderson, as I think you do also. Would love to talk sometime I really like reading your posts.
