    I just bought my first Jeep. A 2007 Wrangler X.
    So far, I'm loving the Jeep life.
    Now, I just need to get one of these to keep my G23, when I'm at work.

    I just hope I don't spend all my spare ammo money on mods. :whistling:

    Do not let him get a yj. When it comes to jeep wranglers always go with round headlights.

    And the diagnosis.....

    Apparently over 200k miles of religious Mobil 1 Synthetic oil changes didn't do the trick. Funny thing is that the inside of the TJ's engine looked clean as a whistle. Wipe parts off with a rag and they looked new. The ZJ donor's engine was baked on black on the inside. We resealed it completely and I've put 8k on it since the swap.... still doesn't leak a drop... which is odd for a Jeep.

    Still want to rebuild the original block. That's a rainy day project.

    The black one is my '03 Grand Cherokee Overland.

    This is my 1989 Grand Wagoneer, fresh from a ground-up restoration. Crate engine with a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb, Hedman Headers, Twin Flowmaster Glass packs, new interior, fresh paint.


    I have an '03 Porsche 911, too. :)

    I had a 67 CJ5 225 ci V-6, 3 speed, with Detroit Lockers
    back in the 70 and early 80's. The guy I sold it to still has it
    in a barn. Wish I still had it but he won't sell.

    I live in a tourist town. Sometimes, especially in summer, you got to get away from it all. The moment those tires hit dirt, there are no more tourists. Also, you get to shoot stuff up!
