Yes I will be selling it. I want to put a couple miles on it first though just to make sure everything is good.

Its a 231hd originally out of a durango. I put all new bearings and seals in it. Procomp sye kit, terra 2wd low kit, brand new chain (wide chain), and a brand new 6 pinion planatery set in it.

I think I have some pics in my build thread if you want to check it out.

Changed the oil out today in the old girl. Refilled with Mobil 1 high mileage and boch filter. I had 20points on the autozone card so why not. And I always seem to spill oil NO MATTER WHAT!!! But it gave me a chance clean up the jewel box a little. Lol

Getting quite frustrated from the car lot we got her WJ from..

We finally dropped the car off today to fix a few things that were issues when we bought it. The drivers side door panel was loose and caused the rubber window seal to get sucked down into the door frame when you put the window down. As far as I know, that friction against the glass will eventually kill the window motor or window regulator perhaps? Small fix, and surely something I could probably fix myself, but it's the principal of the matter. They agreed to fix it.

Then there was an issue where the car overheated on her once. It's been smoking a little bit lately, so that was a high priority to find out what was going on with it. It's only overheated once, but once is one too many times for me. Turns out they said the radiator had a big hole in it and the mechanic was telling me the radiator support was tweaked and the front end must have been hit at some point in time.. Told me he had to straighten it back out before he could drop the new radiator in. All is fine and well with that, and I didn't throw a fit about having to pay for it, although I'm certain it was that way when we bought it. I'm concerned that a shady mechanic may have used Stop Leak or something in the radiator to prevent it from being an issue until it was in our hands and our own problem. I know small shops and probably even big dealerships have practices like that from time to time. Whatever... No problem. We paid for it and apparently now have a new radiator.

The third issue was that it was having trouble starting. It will always start, but it has to turn over way too many times to be normal. You have to hold the key for a second while it's cranking to get it to start up. That sounds like a fuel issue to me, but I'm not a mechanic. Anyway, talked to the lot right after buying it, and he said they had just put a fuel pump in it recently before we bought it, and that they apparently didn't do a fuel filter. He agreed to have the fuel filter put in for us and that would surely resolve the hard start issue.

Well, here's my problem... Despite replacing all the clips and repositioning the window molding and whatever else he said he did, it still does it. It's more aggravating than anything because it was supposed to be fixed. They kept the car all day long. But wait, it gets better! It still hard starts!!!

Any input???
