Doctor, after an intensive autopsy we have discovered the cause of the 4.7's death.... we have leads to believe it was caused by the small orange can on the frontside of the engine just below the power steering pulley... which has not even taken the care to hide its shame.

Thats an awesome project you got there. The 4.7WJs are a PITA at first but once you understand how they are put together they are fun to work on. Good luck on the project and as for the ideas well a built 4.7 makes me foam at the mouth.

Not bad, personally I'd ditch the Laredo grill and go for a limited one or maybe flat black it

Wow...... my 00 WJ has about 166k on it and I was thinking 200k would be a big deal. It's good to see a WJ with almost 300k on it.

Did you have anything out of the ordinary go out in the last 300K?
