New Melling oil pump and pickup. New Mopar windage tray; part number: P4529790. Fel-pro rear main + oil pan gasket. Bottom end looked good for 210xxx miles.

Left it in the driveway and drove the new dd, less gas on commuting means more money for jeeping.

I bought the 4 Gallon kit. I kept a gallon just for touch ups but I realized I can buy it in rattle cans which is more practitcal. I did around 5-7 coats..when it cures in about 2 weeks I might use that other gallon just for more durability. But I'd say 5 gallons is way more than enough.

The best part was that I didn't mask ANYTHING. I washed her real good and then wiped her down with isopropyl to get all the left over dirt and nooks and crannies...then I just went for it!

Once it cures it's strong enough to take bumps/dings without peeling...I know I was super skeptical at first too

Made the final decision on ordering the 4.5 inch iro lift, gonna order it either this weekend or next. Anyone know what the widest tire you can fit on stock snowflakes would be? I want to run some 33x1250 mtr's on soft 8's but it might take a bit to save up enough money to get all 5 so I think I might see what I can find for used tires around town to get me by so I'm not rollin around on pizza cutters til then.

On my old ZJ I had 33x 12.50's on a 7" rim. 8" would be ideal though.

7" rim you're good on 33's but you're pushing it, especially when you air down to low psi.

31's are no issue, but if you're get a soft 8 you can get a 15x8 and run up to 35's on them without issue
