I sold my zj for scrap today! well my parts one anyway!
Why not? Its a bigger filter, so it holds more oil

If you do a search, lots of JF members are running the FL-1A oil filter

Actually what i did yesterday. Was replace the sway bar bushings and endlinks as well as painting the aforementioned parts and the front skid plate. Finally posting some photos of what I am doing for anyone who doubted I do my own work. 1st is the bushing comparison then painted parts before install and then me actually under the Jeep.

What's the rest of it like? $800 sounds great if all it needs is a tranny.

They are specified to be 33.3x10.2x16 in size. However, once they arrived I found that they are actually closer to 34" in diameter and almost 10.6" wide.

They are much larger than they are advertised. Just too much for my ZJ without a lot of lift and probably some cutting. I don't want to do that much lift. I plan to do some minor trimming but not what I would probably have to do with these tires.

I am ordering 285/75/R16 KM2's instead. I work at a tire shop so I can send these big boyz back to the distributor.

nothing to it, BUT it did decide to spew oil out of the sending unit. Ofcourse I was in the sticks at a friend house so I tried to rig it so I would make it home. Didn't last but I made it home.

For tomorrow-replace sending unit...
