Re: R.I.P. to my WJ

Sorry to hear bud! Those 4.0's are pretty tough, I had 210k on my ZJ when the transmission went out. With little to no rust I'd find a good reman or crate engine and have the transmission rebuilt,...

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

It was super easy, there is only one "watch out for" item I will mention. Basically, jack it up, pull the front wheels, then pull the calipers off, caliper brackets, and then knock the rotor off. ...

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

New front CV shafts and wheel hubs/bearings! I can feel that it rolls smoother, those old bearings had gotten pretty bad. The CV shafts probably did not need to be replaced, but I figured why not...

I'll admit most of it is because of road construction in the neighborhood, but it's still a dirty jeep!

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

My first replacement was a "Fenco" brand from Advance that I had never heard of. They since switched to A1-Cardone, a much more reputable reman company. I have higher hopes for this pump.
