The 4.0 takes 6 qts of oil... That still doesn't account for the extra 1/4 quart.

I've burned nearly a spool of wire into my zj in the last few weeks. I'm not seeing why they weight so much because they are built of some really light material. Especially the hood.

I'm rid of all of that, and my cast 5.3 is only 60 lbs more than my aluminum one. I haven't put it on the scale yet but I'm hoping I'm under 4000

Oh, don't worry, I have had it up for $6,000 just for kicks and had some bites but nothing to big. She will be down for a bit until I get her all fixed up!
