Hopefully the engine has leaked on the motor mount bolts enough that they aren't totally rusted in place...
Wish me luck!
I'm not worried about the part I have to replace. I'm more concerned about having to replace whatever the new part is attached to!

When you go to a meet or wheeling trip with your local Jeep club and get weird looks from others because you're the only guy that's not in a "real" Jeep

You know you own a ZJ when the damn thing doesnt even run yet and all you want to do is lift it. Speaking of which, anybody know about how much itd cost to get a new/used 1.5-2" BB ( just the spacers) and a set of used 30s? (maybe like 50% tread)

Well idk about the pliars, but i know i got the puller at autozone, it was a loan tool but i just kept it. And it was just out of the packaging when i bought it.

The people at the autozone near me are pretty good, and they all know what they're talking about. The guys at the o'reilly near me are good as well but autozone is closer and i know them better. Honestly all the auto stores in my area are good, advanced is probably my least favourite, not even sure why, i think they even do their job fine. Hahaha anyways i'm done ranting

Ot: when you have $40 till you get paid, and you can't decide if you want to buy gas and drive to work, or buy ball joints because they're getting bad (though i need more then $40) or buy new axle shafts from a guy on the forum, or buy some v8 springs from a guy on the forum... I think i'm gonna go with springs and walk to work next week...

There's another guy in my club with a GC. He's got a WJ. Some have XJs too. The rest are CJs, TJs, and JKs. No one gives anyone any hassle about their rigs. In fact, it's against our club's rules to put down others' rigs.

97 ZJ - 5.2L, 242, 4" IRO lift w/short arms & adj. TBs, JKS Discos/BPEs, DT3000s, Aussie'd 44A, sliders, bumpers, bunch o' skids, 31" Duratracs on 15x8s

Every single vehicle in the history of time is worth more as parts. In 1996, somebody actually did a study on this. A new Honda Accord at the time cost $20,000. To build a new Honda Accord using OEM parts would cost $60,000.

You know you drive a ZJ when you think the only justification for a hard top is if it's part of the frame.

I wasn't talking about my club lol. We've got a rule about that as well. I was referring to random people we come across when we're out wheeling. There's a few members in our club that have bone stock TJs and JKs. We've even got a 2wd WJ lol

Retreat? Hell, we just got here......
