Oh, screw it then. I would never have let him have it without signing the papers on the first day. Risky business.

It's good ****!! It will be better as as soon as I get this plenum fixed. I can't wait to see what a difference it makes after a nice new gasket, pan, and a good cleaning.

Well if you decide to buy it, I'll probably have a nice transmission with about 30,000 miles or so that I'd let go for a reasonable price if you'd be interested. I have no use for it, as it's for a 4.0 and I've got a 5.2 in my Jeep.

Well, to be completely fair, a 242 does contain a differential.

Decided to replace the squeaky belt today (it was overdue) now all is quiet ad can be drove on public roads without deafing people.

now to figure out if it's the motor mounts or blown shocks or bad bushing someplace
