Welcome to the Warner Robins Jeep Club!

Welcome to the Warner Robins Jeep Club (WRJC) which was established in Warner Robins, Georgia in 2011. Don’t let the name fool you, you don’t have to live in Warner Robins to be a part of the club. We have members living throughout the state of Georgia and around the world.

We are Jeep enthusiasts that enjoy all that is Jeep! Our members drive everything from stock Jeeps to specially built rock crawling buggies and everything in between. We enjoy cruising with the top and doors off, camping, exploring national parks and forests, and hitting the trails at off-road vehicle parks. Some of our club events also include local meet and greets, sponsoring families in need during Thanksgiving and Christmas, and assisting local children's homes with any needs they have.

Our mission is to make a positive impact on our local communities and set the example for the responsible use and enjoyment of our country's natural resources.

So, if you own a Jeep and want to hang around other folks who own Jeeps, register and join us at our next event (check out the Official/Unofficial Events section). We can’t wait to meet you!!!

My Jeep is a 2000 4.0 with 5-speed manual and 101K miles. The previous owner used it for mud bogging and there was mud EVERYWHERE when I bought it last May - including in the cooling system. One of the first things I did when I got it home was to drain the radiator and expansion bottle and fill them with fresh coolant. I always intended to do a proper flush, but every time I checked the coolant it looked clean, and the temperature always stayed normal so I put it off.

Then, coming back from the Anniversary Ride, the temperature climbed to about 230-240º whenever I was driving at a steady speed above about 60MPH. Ever since then, it now runs hotter than normal anytime I'm on the highway. Whenever I slow down or stop, it drops back down to normal.

We did go through some deep puddles on that ride, so I thought that maybe some mud or debris might be clogging the radiator fins. I pulled the radiator and it was a little dirty, but not totally clogged. But I cleaned it out and ran water through it to be sure it wasn't blocked internally. I replaced both of the hoses when I put it back in and used a flush kit to run plain water through it for about 10 minutes. Then I filled it with distilled water water and ran it some more. Then finally filled it with fresh G-05 coolant.

None of that seemed to make any difference. It might be a few degrees cooler now, but is still running hotter than it should. What should I be looking next? The fan clutch seems to be fine, but that wouldn't affect the temperature at high speed anyway.

I'd really like to get this sorted before the long ride to Windrock (and back) in a couple of weeks.

Except for the monsoon that hit, I had a great time Saturday afternoon.  Their next one is scheduled for 11 Aug 18, 5-8 pm.  If you aren’t busy, come out and join me.

Let's establish some groups and plans with this ride right around the corner.

1. Who all is planning on going?
2. Do we need to split groups for skill level?


Amy and I are going, 1 Jeep
