Come on by! It's easy to network locally when you join a 4x4 club especially when all the clubs in your state are united and invited to each other's runs. You meet poor folk like me or run into guys that own some of the big companies you only aspire to order from and drool when you see their products. The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.
Luck Favours The Prepared
I am considering the heater hoses and heater core flush but to be honest my heater already cranks, gets it hotter than a crackhouse with multiple stoves. What I really need to fix is my AC, but I have gotten used to driving without it and I'm a broke college student. Heard the AC was an expensive and labor intensive procedure.
Thank you everyone all for your support and help! I will do a little research on the heater core flush/new hoses and see if I should just tackle that as well.
I use rtv with the gaskets. Put the rtv on the pump and thermo housing, set the gaskets in place and then install. Next time you have to change a part the gasket normally comes of with the old part and no scraping on the block has to be done.
I read early on that you can re-use your hose clamps. I'm sure others cringed as I did when I read that. I learned a long time ago that spending the extra $2 for a couple of clamps is well worth chasing down a leak.
You're a broke college student. Look through the couch cushions and your passed out buddies pockets for the change. KCCO
