The rotella is probably great oil ...just never heard if it being used in non diesel engines. That leak really appears to be in the transfer case proximity so that's where I'd start ...good thing is you were planning a full xfer case /diff/trans service anyway right ? Replace the filters in the tyranny pan and gaskets (use rtv as the gaskets always leak)

Re: Can't get my wj outta 4lo?

In terms of the service, yes. But I'm taking it one step at a time. First thing after I empty my tank of BG44k and petrol(by the way, BG44k is AWESOME. Huge difference in dt smoothness), I'm going to replace the fuel filter. Once I do that, oil and oil filter. Again, one step at a time.

You may want to do the oil sooner even if you get cheap oil / filter
Just because of the gauge situation

Re: Can't get my wj outta 4lo?

Is the oil pressure indication fixed at that high position, or does it move when reving? This seems to be a pressure sensor problem.
The leak pattern you showed, isnīt it just condensed water from the still cold exhaust?
Under DIY is a writeup from 01GRAND regarding the fuel filter/regulator change. The lines can be hard to remove from the filter housing.

Re: Can't get my wj outta 4lo?

Ok, so I now have my rotella t5 10w30, royal purple air filter, and champ labs fuel filter. But I need to figure something out first:I tested the oil pressure gauge yesterday. Turned the car on from cold, the pressure basically went straight to high, and when I revved it, the needle wouldn't budge. Problem here?

It's just a sensor if you unplug it does it do the same thing ? Is your oil level above the full line ?

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_does_the_oil_pressure_gage_work#page1

Yours is the second scenario. If the level on the dipstick isn't over the full line it is most likely the sending unit. Cheap easy fix... but make sure your oil level is correct and your oil isn't full if coolant or water...

It's going to be threaded into the block somewhere with most likely a two wire connector on it. Check rock auto for a picture and look for it on the engine.

Re: Can't get my wj outta 4lo?

Not 100% sure, but its probably close to the oil filter and should have 3 wires going to it. For 99-03 jeeps its a 3 wire pressure sensor which shows actual pressure, on 04 jeeps its just a pressure switch with a 2 wire connector and it just shows a fixed hi pressure indication or 0.

Yeah I have an '02. Can I take it out of the block with oil in it?
