Im guessing you blew a piston and thats what smashed the ceramic. A few of the plugs on my non running 1994 ZJ looked similar...
Me too . I'm thinking that water or another substance is in the motor because I went to drain some oil out of it the other day and a gallon of water then a gallon of antifreeze came out before any oil did.
Why did you put an older dash that doesn't have a tachometer in? Other than that your rig looks clean and a good start for a built rig! I agree with above that you should also change out the motor mounts and all those other parts in thee engine bay that are critical.
