I had all this done:
- Rear main Seal
- Oil pan gasket
- Crankcase Seal
- Mopar Filter
- Oil
- Labor
- Spark plugs
for 500 bucks from my mechanic.

He has to drop the oil pan to get to the rear main seal and take out the radiator shroud and mechanical fan I think to get to the crankcase seal

Haha just giving you **** I do like some of Jason Aldean's stuff, just didn't like when he took Colt Ford's Dirt Road Anthem and butchered it and mass produced it. I hate when girl's say they love the song and have never heard colt ford's version.

And nice leak look's like my XJ's haha. Make sure non of that is tranny fluid!!

X2 finally someone that shares the same opinion as me. Colt fords version is 10x better(along with all of his songs). And Jason stole it right out from under him and colt didn't get any credit...

Yeah for sure it probably is but my torque converter leaked in my old bronco and looked like oil because it leaked oil too and it mixed when it leaked so I never noticed that it leaked tranny fluid until it felt like it was slipping and it was almost off the dip stick lol.

Just read through your whole thread. What ever happened with the hood louvers???? I can't wait to see what they look like. Also, I'm interested in the tail light guards, but you said they scratched your paint. Did you mean the tint paint from your tail lights or they literally hit parts of the Jeep and scratched the paint? I have the same headlights as you and I like them, but I see what you mean with the OEM ones. I was thinking the chrome version of the v3s might look more like the chrome version of the stock headlights.

hood louvers are held off until i find a shop that will install them ..really trying to sell all of my parts locally..but it only really scratched my taillights...in my opinion i hate chrome housing headlights..way to bling for me..every car in the world would look 100% better with black housings
