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.
