ZJ excitement on my way to work

I was going along and heard and felt a thump under the Jeep. Then a smoke screen of steam came out from under it and trailed behind me down the road. It was like something from a James Bond movie. I pulled over and had it towed to the shop. I am hoping for a freeze plug but who knows. If you pour water in the radiator it pours back out somewhere near the back of the engine.

It is the inline 6. It turned out to be a freeze plug. I do not think it did any damage to the motor. It put on a nice show when it did it though.
