Did all four tie rod ends.

took a total of about 3 hours start to finish.

Went pretty good overall.

I think I may have to adjust the tie rod on the drivers side it looks a little off from the right, with the steering wheel centered.

It actually went better than expected, the old ends came off pretty easy. I did NOT use a pickle bar!!

Now my steering is nice and tight.

ETA.....My Son was a little concerned when it started snowing, but he made it through!!

Had muffler shop bend up a new head pipe for the 4.0. Used 2.25 pipe didnt fit so well as the jeep was on the lift at work and the pipe bender was a town away had to dice up the pipe increase some angles and change some turns worked mint. Pulled intake and exhaust manifold welded up cracked exhaust manifold installed new intake/exhaust gasket installed magna flow muffler sounds good especially with no exhaust leaks! I also cleaned the throttle body thouroghly made sure all vacume passages were open now she idles like a champ. On the to do list. Rear upper trailing arms,valve cover gasket,steering stabilizer,front brakes,rear wiper motor repair,rear light failure although all lights work,complete fluid change.

Hey ZJ5point2GCL I know the 5.2 has a drinking problem but the cost of diesel will put right back in the same situation if your not careful unless your getting a VW TDI 35MPG (bastards) you will still need a loan to fill it lol. Belive me I know I have 2 (97 f350 7.3 4x4 crew cab,03 f350 6.0 4x4 xcab wifes) my 97 will piss through 35 gallons like it was its job I only work 7 miles from home with moderate around town driving so choose wisely. That being said I still love my diesels and would not get rid of them have fun shopping!
