This guy.......always with the threats! Haha, after threatening to replace it with an exploder, I bet it starts acting right!

OT: so far, had breakfast in it.

I'm searching for a cause and effect for a very strange problem on my zj....anyone else having this problem? It seems as if my jeep is telling me it wants a ghetto hood scoop/vent.....the driverside hood hinge has lifted increasingly over the course of 6 months. ?wtf and now I can't load a pic cause the file is too big...what a great start.

I had this issue with one of my hinges. The top hinge plate is probably bent (not sure what causes it). Just pull a new pair of hinges from a junkyard ZJ and that should fix it.

Haha probably. But I'm getting the explorer cheap enough it will be okay to dd. and I'm going to wheel the jeep until something major like axels,trans,tcase, or motor let go. And then it will get scrapped

A 2000 is a 2nd gen. As much as everyone hates them and wants them to die, they never seem to. They'll get close and be completely falling apart, but they'll still run.

The Cologne 4.0 only came as SOHC or pushrod, not DOHC. And yeah, the SOHC ones had more power.
