^that scares me as I just bought a 2001 BMW X5 4.4L to flip with timing chain issues.

As of now I am looking at the ZJ thinking "What next" as I wait for a package to be delivered.

I just had mine replaced and the damage wasn't as bad as that but the old chain was so loose that it chipped the sides of the cover... Glad I replaced it and now she runs really smooth

I haven't had time during the past year to do much on my ZJ, but I have started installing an oil pressure gauge and a trans temp gauge in a pod on the A-pillar.

Replaced my crusty, burnt looking drivers side auto dimming mirror with one off of E-Bay. Now I can use the remote with out having to readjust the mirror.

Got my new procomp steelies and my lubelocker within an hour lol.

However, two of the wheels are dented, probably from shipping, because they came in 2 big boxes, which each had 2 wheels in their own boxes inside them. Well, the two that are dented were in the same box, so I assume they were dropped or something. They are dented on both sides too. Probably not enough to affect the bead, but I don't want to look at dented rims all the time, and I don't really want to send them back. When I go to get tires put on, would the tire shop straighten them for me if I asked?

Cant really be sure, i picked it up no problem by myself so not very heavy at all.
Most of it is aluminum other than the outer basket is steel. Pretty lightweight.

Just found out it's a kargo master Safari.
