Yes. Not that color though, and I didn't see if there was one on the hood.

I dont remember the last time i used a pan gasket, use the sealant where applicable is far better than any gaskets unless they are the aluminum/silicon type.

Thanks for the info. I actually have a two brand new cans of that, not sure why I did not think to use it. Any input on replacement oil pans? I know some times with different manuafactures your get variations where some fit better then others.

No, I haven't really got around to it yet. Probably wont get to it till this weekend. I spent half the day yesterday chopping my trailer and re-welding it. Then I spent the rest of the day cleaning up after my grinding and reorganizing the garage so that I could fit the trailer on its side in my garage with the jeep.

Just picked up Rubi 44's pumps and all for 2000. They looked super clean on the outside and when I cracked them open same thing. As long as the lockers and pumps work I think I got a steal.

painted the skid today. and yes, I touched it up after it was under the jeep.


unfortunately, my CEL is back, its probably a crank or cam sensor. the key trick did not work to get me the code. and I am working the rest of the week, so the mechanic will have to take care of it.

BUT

I think I have saturday off. so I want to do a shakedown run... its been more than a year since I've wheeled, and I want to see how the skid does. I won't know until later this week if the CEL will be taken care of in time, but either this or next weekend I will be wheeling!

Is it running ok? The CEL might just be a gas cap or something...wheel it anyway

it runs fine. but if I am running around and it is hot, it occasionally stutters on re-start. I have had the code cleared twice to make sure its not something that easy.

I'd spend more time figuring it out and take care of it myself but I have to work all week.

I have a scanner that can also read live data and of course clear CES. You can borrow it as long you don't break it. :-) I work in point Loma and am home by 1600 every day. Just let me know if you want to use it.

Bolted in my new muffler yesterday, amazing how quiet these engines are when they have a good muffler on them

Also put in some new Pioneer 4" speakers into my soundbar. My old ones were rotted apart and had all but blown up, these new ones comfortably pump out sound where the old ones were screaming for mercy
