Decided to drop my driver side exhaust manifold off at the machine shop so they could make it perfectly flush for me at a fraction of the cost of a new one. Also picked up a new gasket at autozone along with some engine cleaning supplies. The "exhaust manifold bolt kit" that they had in stock looked nothing like the bolts that I took out. Is this going to be something I find at the dealership only?
Found out that my radiator was shot and caused my jeep 4.0 to overheat. ON the inside, there was a section that also houses the transmission fluid and the barrier between coolant and transfluid had been opened.
Our mechanic replaced the radiator, did a flush of the coolant twice, and flushed about 14 qt's of trans fluid.
I gave it a 300 mile drive yesterday to drop my sister off at college and the trans drives mych better since the flush. My mechanic is going to flush the trans 1 more time to be sure he got everything out
Ordered liftgate suppports today. I kinda got tired of liftgate falling on my head and carrying a stick in the back to hold it up when i'm unloading stuff.

No ****. And I ordered rear shock bushings sleeves from KOR last week, paid as much in shipping as the part cost, and I'm still waiting on the part a week later. I think I'm going to start a "KOR is a bunch of d-bags" thread. Let em see what jeepers think of their deals and shipping prices/times. Hell, priority mail would be here by now and cost $9 insured. Instead, I got to pay $17 FedEx ground that takes a week on am $18 part that fits in a ziploc. Ok, just needed to get that out
Kolak sells his own bushing sleeves and if I recall correctly they are cheaper than KOR's. He used to sell KOR's but not anymore. Probably due to cost reasons. If its not too late you can email him for a quote and cancel your order with KOR. I have had kolaks since I installed aftermarket shocks and have never had clunks. Just another idea.
