Picked up a valve cover gasket, intake gasket, CCV and other elbow with grommets, intake bolt kit, throttle body gasket, oil filter, a gallon of gojo cleaner, 3 gallons of windshield washer fluid, and carb and choke cleaner for $63 (online discount codes are awesome) from Advance. Going to have a fun day tomorrow replacing the intake gasket and cleaning everything I can touch.

Yep. Had to buy all that extra crap to hit $100 for the coupon to work. But worth it...

Surprised it fitted in that garage!! Really looks like you got the full 6 inches.....unlike a lot seem to on here. Look great! Yeah add the fm little by little to see if that sorts it. Sort the pinion angle first just in case thats adding to the locking up feeling.

Ughh! Why do you do this to me. I settled on 4 inches but when you post something like that... it makes me want to go big or go home!

Had my mechanic friend have a look at the jeep today, found a broken rubber bend/hose at the rear end of engine, it goes to the PCV valve, its my vacum leak, once he put his finger on it, it settled down at idle at once, and we could clearly hear the vacum leak was away.

Parts will be ordered and issue fixed, i am sooo glad i wasnt my intake manifold gasket, which is a huge operation in comparison of changing that hose.

Coolant leak at lower radiator hose/clamp attempt to Fix, we will see if it still drips after all spill Are pressure washed away.

Drained and replaced Transfer fluid, 247 fluid came out looking Good, new Mopar 247 fluid back in.

Today i threw out the spare tire, i am not going to use it anyway (hopefully), cause i will roll on 31"'s very soon, and a non full size spare have no use.

To compensate for that, i bought a tire repair seal box, and a tire repair kit,

and threw them into the spare tire wheel well, together with my Cold steel shovel/axe, Jumper cables, tow strap (favourite), Reflective west, ratchet straps,

Will add a flashlight, first aid kit, and some more smart gadgets, then i have a great emergency kit in my spare wheel well.

Think my WJ is playing tricks on me. Hesitated when starting last night even after tightening the positive battery terminal that was loose but this morning at 5 degrees it fired right over no problem, no hesitating. Checked plugs on coils, plug for cyl 5 clicked when I pushed on it so maybe it wasn't on all the way. Gonna swap in some new battery terminals tomorrow and change the fuel filter if I have time after work. Seems to be running a little better at the moment. Battery seems okay for now, work goofed on my check so money is a little tighter than expected for christmas. If these few things dont fix it I got a can of seafoam in the back.
