It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Whenever you get the manifold off do you just soak the stud in some PB Blast and get a pair of vice grips on it and try and turn it out?

Once I got my manifold off, the broken off stud turned out by hand with no effort whatsoever.

Loving the Jeep build so far! Quick question, when upgrading your new headlights to HID's, did you need only one set for high or low beams? Are do you need two for both high/low beams?

I remember looking down the passenger side and thinking that we are all lucky that it seems to be the drivers side that has the broken stud/gasket problem. Things are messy over on that side.

Currently I do. I plan on going the ebay route as well. I may do fog lights too. After examining the headlight assemblies more on ebay, I see just one is a projector style headlights. Low beams as you say.
