After 2,500 miles of owner ship my jeeps in the shop. The head gasket went out. They sent the head off to the machine shop and found 2 cracks.

I bought a replacement head from Alabamacyclinderhead.com

I'm glad I bought the extended warranty. The only thing I'm paying for is my 50$ deductible and the head.

Nice lookin Silverstone you have there. I just got one just like it. How do you like the Rocky Road shackles. I have been looking at their lift using the OME springs and shocks.
