Hello...Newbie here....

I presently have 2 jeeps...a white '95 Limited 5.2 and a recently purchased Sienna Pearl '99 Limited 4.7. The '99 has a knock to it, and doing some research on putting new bearings in it. It has 101k on the odometer. I picked it up for $1k, so I'm trying to get by cheap on the engine to get it running, then spring for a decent engine to freshen up and swap in.

Well...I put a new bearing in the no. 8 rod. Sounded good for about 30 minutes of driving...then it came back. When checking the clearances with plastigauge, I found the rod to be "egg shaped", I figured it wouldn't last long. Anyway, picked up the replacement junk yard engine for a cool $400. Looks like it'll be going in soon. I think I'm gonna pull it down a bit and look at the condition of the internals.
