Who came up with this idea? Did they really think saving money by going with one gasket instead of two was worth the extra aggravation? Did they get Inspector Gadget to design the lower bolt locations? This has got to be the most irritating thing I've had to do to the Jeep yet.

When you park in your backyard just so you can have the satisfaction of driving over a few rocks & thru a ditch or two in the field behind your house.
When its the only vehicle you will park in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and your family parks their car at your house & takes your XJ to said store.
When you have a Corvette, Caddilac, and a Lincoln in your garage, but you take your XJ to pick up chicks.
