By the way, I think my oil pan gasket needs replacing judging from what I saw under the vehicle today. And it looks like you have to unbolt the engine mounts to change it.....I have an engine hoist at my disposal. Will I need it?
I had read somewhere that an axle has to be removed to access the oil pan, but that the engine does not have to be hoisted. I will be doing this next week, so I'll let you know what I actually find out.

Looks like you've got a project on your hands, too good luck

I changed my oil yesterday. Noticed the front tie rods looked funny. Turns out I need a entire new tie rod setup, mainly because:

1. I got a case of the Death Wobble the other night.

2. I can take the entire assembly and twist it.

Tie Rods are pretty straight-forward installation, right? I've never done that either. I'm changing the steering damper while I'm down there.

No need to wait until next week. I can tell you right now that that notion is absolute hogwash.

#2 describes a perfectly normal condition. A new "setup" won't be any different. And a Jeep steering "setup" looks funny, even when new.
