Before sharing my latest efforts on my Jeep I'll introduce myself a little bit.
I'm Dutch, living in Holland and own my Jeep for nearly 9 years now. When I bought it with a low milage (50k) it was never used for heavier work than bring kids to school and do some shoppings I guess.
For me my Jeep has to work a little bit harder: daily ride, towing a horse trailer and sometimes transport vintage cars on a trailer.
4 Months ago (120,000 miles) after being very reliable, a motor support was broken. And after a longer while of oil leakage at the head gasket and a coolant consumption, I decided it was time to take the XJ into my garage to dive in it with some tools to fix the head gasket.
Unfortunately the head appeared broken so I had to search for a replacement one. I ordered a new cylinder head in the USA and it took some months to ship it to Holland. Having the parts and screws of the dismantling well organized, and with a brand new head I fixed this job in the past days. Today I had my first short drive and everything looks and sounds fine!
Hopefully I can drive another 100,000 miles before the next big fix.
